Daughters



I know a girlShe puts the color inside of my worldBut she's just like a mazeWhere all of the walls are continually changeAnd I've done all I canTo stand on her steps with my heart in my handsNow I'm starting to seeMaybe it's got nothing to do with me
Fathers, be good to your daughtersDaughters will love like you doGirls become lovers who turn into mothersSo mothers, be good to your daughters too
Oh, you see that skin?It's the same she's been standing inSince the day she saw him walking awayNow she's leftCleaning up the mess he made
So fathers, be good to your daughtersDaughters will love like you doGirls become lovers who turn into mothersSo mothers, be good to your daughters too
Boys, you can breakYou'll find out how much they can takeBoys will be strongAnd boys soldier onBut boys would be gone without warmth fromA woman's good, good heart
On behalf of every manLooking out for every girlYou are the god and the weight of her world
So fathers, be good to your daughtersDaughters will love like you doGirls become lovers who turn into mothersSo mothers, be good to your daughters tooSo mothers, be good to your daughters tooSo mothers, be good to your daughters too
