Honey, I'm A Big Boy Now  - Billy Bragg

    I can see the kitchen light
    From the road where I park my bike
    But it's dark there as it often is these days
    And the gloomy living room
    Really needs a dust and broom
    But I can't brush your memory away

    Her father was an admiral
    In someone elses navy
    And she had seen the World before I met her
    She would wash and cook and clean
    And all the other things between
    And like a fool I just sat there and met her

    Now I can feed and dress and wash myself
    And I can sleep without the light on
    Honey, I'm a big boy now
    I don't know what she does
    With all the money that I send her
    She's running round the town with the Young Pretender

    I haven't touched the garden
    Since the day she walked away
    From a love affair that bore only bitter fruit
    She took everything she wanted
    Which is why she left me here
    With these pots and pans and my old wedding suit

    A letter came one morning
    That she would not let me see
    And from that day I began to realise
    That she would one day break
    The home we tried to make
    For sinners cannot live in Paradise
