STAY A LITTLE LONGER

O happy days, such happy days

I’d walk in, see the kids with cheeky grins

I would smile, watch tv

Then a punch in the head: Why you drunk again?

 

Could not believe my sorry ears, when I came home

Kids were crying all in tears

Sayin’ their Ma, she’ gonna leave,

For the big bald man who lives down the street

 

Why wont you stay, just a little bit longer

And I promise that the kids will never go without shoes again

And if you’d stay, just a little bit longer

I promise every night we’ll be tucked up snug in bed by ten

 

Westward bound, a charter plane

Kids still crying, all in tears, awash with pain

Say you’ll come, come back again

I’ll get you flowers, dairy milk, mint choc chip ice cream

 

Stop and think before you go

Are you really gonna love ole Mexico?

It’s no fun: Acapulco Bay

Just take the first plane back and come back and play

 

Why won’t you stay, just a little bit longer

And I promise that the kids will never go without shoes again

And if you’d stay, just a little bit longer

I promise every night well be tucked up snug in bed by ten

 

We wish you’d stay just a little bit longer

We wish you’d stay just a little bit longer

Why don't you just a little bit longer…

Kevin Gray: I Should
