Dolly Parton – Starting Over Again lyrics

[Verse 1]
Momma moved out, Daddy sold the house
They split up the money and went on their way
And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Mommy and Daddy back together again
[Chorus]
Starting over again
Where should they begin?
Because they’ve never been out on their own
Starting over again
Where do you begin?
When your dreams are all shattered
And the kids are all grown
And the whole world cries
[Verse 2]
Got an apartment, she moved in with her sisters
He’s scheming big deals with one of his friends
While she sits at home just sorting out pieces
Of left over memories from thirty odd years
[Chorus]
Starting over again
Where do you begin
You’ve never been out on your own
Starting over again
Never any end
[Verse 3]
What will the neighbors say?
They’re talking talk
It’s small town news
Facing fifty years old
Breaking up a happy home
And this far down the road
You find yourself alone
Two fools
[Chorus]
Starting over again
Now where do you begin
When you’ve never been out on your own
Starting over again
Never any end
When your dreams are all shattered
And the kids are all grown
And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Could never put Mommy and Daddy back together
Back together, again
