To Have And Have Not


We went to the preacher and told him 'I do',
And promised forever our love would be true.
Together we began a family,
Two boys for him a girl for me.

One day he tired of family life,
Tired of work, his kids and his wife.
So off to the Judge and told him we're through,
Signed all the papers, split things in two.

He'll tell you that the split was unfair!
I must agree, I got more than my share.
All he got was his car, his freedom, his way.
While I got the kids and and X that won't pay!

I got all the bills and a life less ol' Ford.
And the house with payments I couldn't afford.
So off to the Judge to ask for some money.
Now, he understood, but said 'Listen Honey,

I wish I could help, the man is a jerk.
How can he pay you, the bum's out of work!
Then I met a prince of a man with charming ways
Who'd love me and the kids for all of his days.
So off to the preacher and told him 'I do',
Promised forever our love would be true.
Together we joined our families,
Two boys for him, two more girls for me!

Then one day he grew tired of family life,
Tired of work, his kids and his wife.
There's a moral to this, I swear it's true!
They often don't when they say I do!
