Why Every Girl Needs a Daddy
To tell her how smart she is when she fails a test,
To tell her that no matter what anyone says, she really is the best.
To tell her that she is beautiful without wearing any make-up,
To make sure her heart is ok when she goes through a break-up.
To show her that glasses really can be cool,
To talk to her, when she doesn’t want to go back to school.
To come to her every night and give her that special good-night kiss,
To explain to her that no homework assignment can be missed.
To show her you’re never too old to sit on your father’s lap,
To teach her how to read a map.
To give her someone to call “Superman,”
To encourage her and tell her that she can.
To love her the way only a daddy can love,
Like an angel looking out for her, an angel from above.
