Lyrics

She’s Leaving Home
Music and Lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Wednesday morning at five o’clock
As the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free

She
We gave her most of our lives
Is leaving
Sacrificed most of our lives
Home
We gave her everything money could buy
She’s leaving home
After living alone
For so many years
Bye, bye

Father snores as his wife gets in
To her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that’s lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down
And cries to her husband
“Daddy, our baby’s gone”
“Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me?”

She
We never thought of ourselves
Is leaving
Never a thought for ourselves
Home
We’ve struggled hard all our lives to get by
She’s leaving home
After living alone
For so many years
She’s leaving home
Bye, bye

Friday morning at nine o’clock
She is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She
What did we do that was wrong
Is leaving
We didn’t know it was wrong
Home
Fun is the one thing that money can’t buy
Something inside
That was always denied
For so many years
She’s leaving home
Bye, bye
Bye bye
Bye, bye
