Daddy's Girl

I'm a Daddy's girl.

I'm a Daddy's girl.

She was born in the heat of early summer

To an unwed mom and a dad that was a runner

Placed in the system until a family could be named.

Five months she spent in foster care

Then a couple whose love was 'specially rare

Took her home and she was never the same.


She became a Daddy's girl

He couldn't wait to tell Nanny 'bout her little curls

She was a Daddy's girl

She loved her mom but he was her whole world

She was a Daddy's girl.


She showed them she was smart

She liked music, dance and art

But most of all she loved to make him proud

She could write and she could do math

And she could usually make him laugh

She also loved to perform in front of a crowd


She was a Daddy's girl

She loved when he'd watch her twirl

She was a Daddy's girl

His smile was her whole world

She was a Daddy's girl.


She grew up fast and found a man

She thought she loved and he asked for her hand

It was time she settled down.

She planned to become a pretty June bride

All she needed was Daddy by her side.

And at the back of the church he frowned.


She was a Daddy's girl

He said she looked like a princess

She was a Daddy's girl

He said she didn't have to do this

She was a Daddy's girl


She walked on down that aisle

And things were fine for awhile

They had two kids and bought a house

Then something went wrong

Before long he was gone

And she was left without a spouse


She was still a Daddy's girl

He didn't say I told you so

She was a Daddy's girl

He even told her to let the man go

She was a Daddy's girl


For more than forty years this man has been her anchor

He's loved her like crazy and been much more than a father

He's done everything he could do

To help her make it through


And he's made her a Daddy's girl

She's raising boys and needs his advice

She is a Daddy's girl

She never has to ask him twice

She is a Daddy's girl.

She'll always be a Daddy's girl.
