Daddy's Girl (Words and music by Glen Martin) 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. ... cho: Daddy's Girl ... Daddy's Girl ... I'm the champ ... 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. CHORUS: I recall the day I took you on a fishin' trip You said, "Daddy won't that hook - hurt the fishes' 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. CHORUS: 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. CHORUS: Copyright Glen Martin Recorded by Red Sovine GG oct97
