Here is a story that is bound to amuse ya
A dedicated husband and a real fine worker
But one night in Dallas at a computer convention
Woke up with a heavy head and a strange girl beside him
But inside his coat his wife found a note
She asked him "Why oh why" Tears rollin' down her eyes

(Two small children clinging to her dress)
(she picked up the pieces of her broken life)
(trying to find the answer in a bottle of wine)
(he didn't care one way if he lived or died)
for one night of pleasure he had given her pain
for a moment of glory, glory
As the months rolled by and accusations fly
The gold war begins she's takin' off her rings

(it was his little boy Johnny and his sister Beth)
(a line of communication he had sadly missed)
I said "Good-bye children we can work it all out"
'cause you give it all up for a moment of glory" glory
Won't you give it all up
Won't you give it all up
