Song Lyrics


I know a girl

She puts the color inside of my world

but she`s just like a maze

Where all of the walls are continually changed

And I`ve done all I can

To stand on her steps with my heart in my hand

Now I`m starting to see

Maybe it`s got nothing to do with me

Fathers, be good to your daughters

Daughters will love like you do

Girls become lovers who turn into mothers

So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Ooh, you see that skin?

It`s the same she`s been standing in

Since the day she saw him walking away

Now she`s left

cleaning up the mess he made

So fathers, be good to your daughters

Daughters will love like you do

Girls become lovers who turn into mothers

So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Boys, you can break

You find out how much they can take

Boys will be strong

And boys soldier on

But boys would be gone without warmth from

A woman`s good, good heart

On behalf of every man

looking out for every girl

You are the god and the weight of her world

So fathers, be good to your daughters

Daughters will love like you do

Girls become lovers who turn into mothers

So mothers be good to your daughters, too

So mothers be good to your daughters, too

So mothers be good to your daughters, too.
