Running Wild

Part 1

Rockabye baby on the treetop.
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock.

Something is wrong when they're left alone

Mommy is naughty when Daddy's not home.

Part 2

I can't believe you're doing this!
Running 'round the town,

playing with the party boys...

Which one o' them is laying you down?

Why're you running crazy?
Why're you running wild?

Lately you amaze me,

acting like a child.

Out the door when I get home,
leaving me with the kids.

You stagger home at daybreak,

vodka on your lips.

I know sometimes that I'm no prize --
used to be one in your eyes.

It's a bitter pill I have to eat.

Choose, Lady, him or me!

Part 3

Daddy, where're you going? Mommy, who's this man?
What does all this mean to us? Tell us if you can.

Daddy, you don't look so good, of your smile there's no trace.
It's weird to see a stranger kissing Mommy's face.

We want to live with both of you, for you to get along.
We don't understand, don't know who's right or wrong.

We hear a lot of angry words -- do you fight because of us?
Tell us that it isn't true our family's breaking up!

Sorry, we can't help it. You've forced us to take sides:
boys to boys and girls to girls, to save our shattered lives.

Part 4

Rockabye baby on the treetop.
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock.

This house is divided, it's falling apart.

Mommy's new boyfriend has stolen her heart.
