Daddy would you be proud of me?
Of all the things I’ve done?
Daddy would you be proud of me?
Of your daughter who misses you a ton?
Would you clap at all the things I’ve done?
Cheer me on while I perform?
Sit in the front row?
Oh why did you have to go?
Daddy would you scare away?
All the boys who come to play?
They are just friends but you just tease.
Made me laugh with your joyful ease.
Daddy would you tell me?
The things I want to hear?
If only you were here.
Daddy would you be proud of me?
I did the thing I dreamed!
It was more spectacular then my wildest dreams!
Daddy you were proud of me.
If I would only know it.
Because when you were around me,
I was too blind to see you show it.
Daddy are you proud of me?
Of how I asked of you,
If you were so proud of me?
Daddy I ask this for I know the answer.
If you were here you would be proud.
You would tell me not to listen to the crowd.
To be the girl I want to be
The girl inside who’s really me.
Daddy why did I feel you there?
With others instead of your warm stare?
I’m not afraid of my dreams any more.
I just wish you were here to say.
Daughter I’m so proud of you.
You turned out better than I dreamed.
I wish too that I would be there with you.
Daughter how did you turn out so good?
When I was oh so bad.
Why did I never say more how I was proud.
So daughter I’m so proud but saddened for you to say aloud.
Daddy are you proud of me?
Daddy are you proud of me?
