Take a perfect pair
Pair them up in two,
Prepare a perfect ceremony
Now watch and see what they do.
They\'ll try to make it work
But as most people do
They\'ll end up picking a fight
And one split ends in two.
\"For the kids\", they say \"for the kids\"
Since they\'ve already made a couple.
But will this be enough to justify their actions
Or have they just run into a bit of trouble?
Trouble, i\'d say, is the right term
Though I might sound a bit conflicted
For after all the trouble they have caused,
Is it enough of a term for the pain they\'ve inflicted?
These kids afore mentioned will be the living souvenirs
Of a union that didn\'t last much more than a few years.
\"Poor children\" will be the way others will refer
To their kids when brought up in conversation
\"So many years since the big split,
Yet they haven\'t been given the proper foundation.\"
So before you go and say your vows
Make sure you will stay true to them
For not everything that is seemingly perfect
Is seamlessly perfect in the end.
