Lyrics

If ever I have a son in life, I'll call him in one day Sit him down upon my knee and here is what I'll say You might lose your lover, people do sometime Oh, but it won't make sense for you to sit around cryin' Son, don't you know that when you fall in love Sometimes, you're gonna have the blues Well it may take years, but you're gonna shed some tears 'Cause everybody's got to pay some dues, now, now Everybody's got to pay some dues
