    The sun goes down behind a cloud
    The church door now in shade
    You crossed yourself and you knelt
    Behind me as you prayed

    Father mother wife and child

    I lived alone in August once
    I went down to the sea
    I met a girl on holiday
    With her family
    She said she hated all these things
    The way we roll through life
    So she joined the circus
    And she became my wife

    Father mother wife and child

    The child is the father of the man
    The mother and the wife
    The child enjoys the longest days
    And the longest life
    A mother's work is never done
    Contracted in an hour of fun
    When the wife was just a bride
    You began to grow inside

    Father mother wife and child

    You'll have many roles to play
    Some you'll lose and some will stay
    But you can't escape from those
    That you cannot choose
    The earth revolves around the sun
    Infinity has just begun
    And we are bound to wonder why
    Like a baby born to cry

    Father mother wife and child
