I just wanted to say

"Come watch me,

Daddy Please"

Something swooped down

And snatched my chance away

Why can't I say

"Daddy watch me

See how your baby has grown"?

My chance slips away

And my heart is torn in two

A precious item stolen

A chance gone

When can my dad watch me

And see how I've grown?

I just wanted to say

"Come watch your baby girl

Daddy please

Come watch your baby girl"

Chance has gone

The item stolen

You'll have to wait again…
