Het nummer dateert uit 1968, maar werd in 1975 pas een hit in Europa. Na de nummer 1-hit "Stand by your man", waarin het huwelijk bijna heilig werd verklaard, was dit de ultieme tegenhanger met een lied over een scheiding. In 1983 zong Monica West de Nederlandse vertaling van dit nummer getiteld "S.C.H.E.I.D.I.N.G.". Deze Nederlandse versie kwam niet verder dan een Tipparadenotering.

Trivia

Wist je dat? De B-kant is een cover van: David Houston - Almost Persuaded (1966). Dit nummer was in 1975 terug te vinden in de versie van de Nederlandse countrygroep Sommerset.

Songtekst

Our little boy is four years old and quite a little man
So we spell out the words we don't want him to understand
Like T-O-Y or maybe S-U-R P-R-I-S-E
But the words we're hiding from him now
Tear the heart right out of me.

Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E; becomes final today
Me and little J-O-E will be goin' away
I love you both and this will be pure H-E double L for me
Oh, I wish that we could stop this D-I-V-O-R-C-E.

Watch him smile, he thinks it Christmas
Or his 5th Birthday
And he thinks C-U-S-T-O-D-Y spells fun or play
I spell out all the hurtin' words
And turn my head when I speak
'Cause I can't spell away this hurt
That's drippin' down my cheek.

Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E; becomes final today
Me and little J-O-E will be goin' away
I love you both and this will be pure H-E double L for me
Oh, I wish that we could stop this D-I-V-O-R-C-E
