Mutha's Day Out — Memories Fade lyrics

Sitting on the front porch
Watching the children play
Old man rocking
Waiting for judgement day
A fresh chew of tobacco, and
A glass of lemonade
The sun beats down, but he's
Safe in the shade
Ooh... Just a memory
As a memory fades
Mama's in the kitchen
Been working there all day
The old man comes home
As the children come into play
He works all day
At the corner lumberyard
Just to bring home a dollar
He works real hard all day
Ooh... Just a memory
As a memory fades
Don't stand around
Waiting for another day
Don't stand around
Forgetting yesterday
Don't live for tomorrow
Cause it might be the last train
The last train
Old man's on the sofa
With the news on tv
He'll sit there all night
That's the way it's been the
Way it'll be
Can't you see
Mama cuddles up
While the children are in the bed
They could have had it all
But they chose love instead
Some say
Ooh... Just a memory
As a memory fades
Don't stand around
Waiting for another day
Don't stand around
Forgetting yesterday
Don't live for tomorrow
Caus it might be the last
Train
The last train
That way it goes
The seasons only change
I stand around waiting for
Another day
It all passes me by and by and
By
As it goes where it goes
The seasons going by
There's a change
Don't stand around
Waiting for another day
Don't stand around
Forgetting yesterday
Don't live for tomorrow
Caus it might be the last
Train
The last train
