I really am a good girl,
I'm really sure I am,
Although daddy say's I'm always bad,
Does that really mean im damned?

I really am a good girl,
My teachers all tell me so,
I always do all my work,
Daddy say's its not good enough though,

I really am a good girl,
My mother says it's so,
I tidy up my room,
And keep my toys in rows.

I really am a good girl,
But my daddy doesn't agree,
He thinks I'm off having fun,
But that shall never be.

I really am a good girl,
My friends all tell me so,
They say I'm too much of an angel,
That I need to let it go.

I really am a good girl,
But my daddy disagrees,
He thinks I have the devil in me,
That I should prey before I leave.

I really am a good girl,
I have steaming hot baths,
It's to rid me of evil,
It's painful but I'm not bad.

I really am a good girl,
I tell nothing that goes on at home,
I leave the tears in the house,
And collect them when I'm alone.

I really am a good girl,
I swear upon my grave,
I never would hurt anyone,
But my self, that's a different way.

I really am a good girl,
I promise throughout the years,
I'll help whenever possible,
Although my daddy gives me tears.

I really am a good girl,
I try to be warm,
You see my daddy needs warmth in bed,
I do hope it's not wrong.

I really am a good girl,
But I cry because it hurts,
I think its normal I hope it is,
My daddy say's it's to learn.

I really am a good girl,
I try so very hard,
And although my daddy hates me,
At least im not so bad,

I really am a good girl,
I think the demons are all gone,
And although he always makes me cry,
He can stop the demon's going on.

I really am a good girl,
Although he says im not,
At least I'm warm and of use,
Even if it hurts a lot.
