It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces i can see
But not for me
I sit and watch
As tears go by

My riches can't buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All i hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doin' things i used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by
