Daddy's Girl (Michael T Wall)

I recall the night that
you came into this world.
I couldn't believe the doctor
when he said, "It's a little girl."
I said, "Now, Doc, you must be wrong.
You see I want a boy."
Then he laid you in my arms
and my heart sang with joy.

Daddy's girl, Daddy's girl,
I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
I know I'm Daddy's number one,
For he loves me like I was his son.
Daddy's girl.

I recall the day I took
you to a baseball game.
You brought along your baby doll
and half its baby things.
We sat there a-playin' house,
while the Dodgers played the Braves,
And ev'ryone in the bleachers
looked at us as if to say:

Daddy's girl, Daddy's girl,
I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
I know I'm Daddy's number one,
For he loves me like I was his son.
Daddy's girl.

I recall the day I took
you on a fishin' trip.
You said, "Daddy won't that hook
hurt the fish's lip?"
And you said, "If they don't get air,
those things in the can will die."
So we turned the worms all loose
and chased some butterflies.

Daddy's girl, Daddy's girl,
I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
I know I'm Daddy's number one,
For he loves me like I was his son.
Daddy's girl.

I recall the day that
your young man came to call.
Seems like only yesterday
you swam and played football.
But I know the time has come
that I must set you free,
But no matter where you are
you know what you are to me.

Daddy's girl, Daddy's girl,
I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
I know I'm Daddy's number one,
For he loves me like I was his son.
Daddy's girl.

[To fade]

Daddy's girl, Daddy's girl,
I'm the centre of Daddy's world.
I know I'm Daddy's number one,
For he loves me like I was his son.
Daddy's girl.
