TOM PAXTON


About The Children Lyrics

The conversation pauses while the waiter pours our tea
This timely interruption is a great relief to me
I wish he'd stay all day, I'd never have to say
About the children

You're looking really lovely and the dress is really you
The necklace I remember but the bracelet must be new
But that's another day, I clear my throat and say
About the children

Oh, they'll be away at school, they'll have the camps to go to
And they're much too young to know how hard it is to go through
Ah, these were to be the years for us making love in the afternoon
No worries anymore about the children

The conversation's civilized, we calmly nod our heads
You're smiling as you always do but your napkin is in shreds
You'd like to run away, oh, who'd be the first to say
About the children

Oh, they'll be away at school, they'll have the camps to go to
And they're much too young to know how hard it is to go through
Ah, these were to be the years for us making love in the afternoon
No worries anymore about the children

The conversation's civilized, we calmly nod our heads
You're smiling as you always do but your napkin is in shreds
You'd like to run away, oh, who'd be the first to say
About the children, about the children
