Can Of Worms Lyrics

Can Of Worms - Squeeze

She was married and then divorced

Things seemed to happen that way

The children were confused sometimes theyd fight

Sitting in their toys and games

To them she's mother and I am their friend

Who sits with them on his lap

 

And sleeps on the sofa on alternate weekends

 

No substitute for their dad

 

She's a very good mum

As she tries to explain

Everything that she can

But a childs mind is sharp

 

They imagine the worst

Sometimes can't understand

That theres so much to learn

When you open a can of worms

 

So to the park to play on the swings

 

To give their mother a break

 

When I saw their father walking down the path

 

Heading down towards the gate

 

I froze on the spot heart in my throat

 

I hoped hed not see us there

 

He soon disappeared and the kids on the slide

 

Were happy and unaware

 

She's a very good mum

And she tries to explain

Everything that she can

But a child's mind is sharp

 

They imagine the wors

Sometimes can't understand

That there's so much to learn

When you open a can of worms

 

I read the papers and made scrambled eggs

The kids got ready to leave

Their father was taking them for the weekend

With pocket money and sweets

 

They were excited as they waved goodbye

And I went straight back to bed

Their mother stood and watched as they drove away

Standing on the front door step

 

She's a very good mum

And she tries to explain

Everything that she can

But a child's mind is sharp

 

They imagine the wors

 

Sometimes can't understand

 

That there's so much to learn

 

When you open a can of worms

 

She's a very good mum

And she tries to explain

Everything that she can

But a child's mind is sharp

They imagine the wors

Sometimes can't understand

That there's so much to learn

When you open a can of worms
