Bobby Goldsboro - With Pen In Hand Lyrics

With pen in hand
You sign your name
Today at five
I'll be on that train
And you'll be free
And I'll be alone
So alone

If you think
We can't find the love we once knew
If you think
I can't make everything up to you
Then I'll be gone
And you'll be on your own
You'll be on your own

Can you take good care of Jenny
Can you take her to school everyday
Can you teach her how to play
All the games that little girls play
Hear what I say
Can you teach her how to roll up her hair
Can you make sure each night that she says her prayers
Well if you can do all these things
Then maybe she won't miss me
Maybe she won't miss me

And tonight as you laid in that big lonely bed
And you look at that pillow
Where I laid my head
With your heart on fire
Will you have no desire
To kiss me
Or to hold me

And if you can forget
The good times we had
If you don't think
They out weigh the bad
Well then go ahead
Sign your name
And I'll be
On my way
I'll be on my way

    Should have played this tune to my ex before she left with my (then) 12 yr.old boy
    Should have scored much higher than #94, but did chart for 5 weeks on Billboard back in '72

    John Jarou

    +cvueguy yes, it got a LOT of radio airplay where i grew up (mid-michigan area) suprised it didn't chart MUCH higher. such a great song.

    Lynne Barlow

    เสียงเขาใสก้องกังวาล ไม่เหมือนใคร เพราะมากความหมายก็ดี เพลงนี้เขาแต่งเองและมีคน
    อื่นนำไปร้องหลายคน จนโด่งดังไปทั่วโลก ผมชอบเพลนี้ครับ....

    เพลงนี้ Vikky Carr นำไปร้องใหม่จนโด่งดังไป
    ทั่วโลกเลยครับ เพราะความหมายกินใจผู้คน
