Lyrics

FOR PETE'S SAKE
VERSE 1
You've got your bag in your hand. You're reaching for the door. You
told me this morning you couldn't take this anymore. When little
Pete gets off of that school bus today I won't know what to do and I
won't know what to say.
CHORUS
Oh oh for Pete's sake won't you turn back around. Come back inside
and put your bag down. We can work out our problems if we really
try. I'd survive if I had to but what about that little guy? Please don't
walk out the door. Don't make that mistake. Let's keep our family
together - for Pete's sake.
VERSE 2
You say you're tired of barely making it. You say you deserve more.
What about those vows you made " for rich or for poor" ? I'm sorry
if I failed you but can't you see what's at stake? I'll get down on my
knees and beg you to stay-for Pete's sake.
REPEAT CHORUS
Won't you give us one more chance- for Pete's sake? Oh for Pete's sake.
