d-i-v-o-r-c-e lyrics – wanda jackson

our little boy is four years old and quite a little man
so we spell out the words we don’t want him to understand
like t-o-y or maybe s-u-r-p-r-i-s-e
the words we’re hiding from him now tear the heart right out of me

our d-i-v-o-r-c-e becomes final today me and little j-o-e will be going away
i love you both and this will be pure h-e double l for me
i wish that we could stop this d-i-v-o-r-c-e

watch him smile he thinks it’s christmas or his fifth birthday
cause he thinks c-u-s-t-o-d-y spells fun or play
i spell out all the hurting words and turn my head when i speak
but i can’t spell away this hurt that’s dripping down my cheeks
our d-i-v-o-r-c-e becomes final today…
i wish that we could stop this d-i-v-o-r-c-e
