C 
They're dividing up their playthings
 
This is  
F 
yours this is  
C 
mine
 
They're dividing  
G7 
up the bed
Am 
room 
 
 
G7 
 
With an  
D7 
imaginary 
 
 
G7 
line
 
One is  
C 
running back to mother
 
One just  
F 
wants to be  
C 
alone
 
They will  
Am 
cry and pout and  
C 
walk 
 
out
 
Just like  
G7 
children I have  
C 
known
F 
 
C 
 
Just like children I have  
F 
known
G7 
They're not wiser they're just  
C 
grown
Am 
It's not a chocolate ice cream  
Dm 
cone
G7 
It's not a doll house it's a  
C 
home
 
Just like children I have  
F 
known
G7 
Almost down to sticks and  
C 
stones
Am 
They'll be lost out on their  
Dm 
own
G7 
Just like children I have  
C 
known

And they're gonna cry their eyes out

 
Once they  
F 
find out what they've  
C 
done
 
Cause their hearts aren't  
G7 
made of  
Am 
candy
 
That they  
D7 
eat what the other  
G7 
wants
 
It could  
C 
be a happy ending
 
They don't  
F 
have to live  
C 
alone
 
They could  
Am 
kiss and hug and  
C 
make 
 
up
 
Just like  
G7 
children I have  
C 
known
Repeat #3,4

 
Am 
They'll be lost out on their  
Dm 
own
G7 
Just like children I have  
C 
known
