Everything she sees
She says she wants
Everything she wants
I see she gets

That’s my daughter in the water
Everything she owns, I bought her
Everything she owns

That’s my daughter in the water
Everything she knows, I taught her
Everything she knows…

*****

Everything I say
She takes to heart
Everything she takes
She takes apart

That’s my daughter in the water
Every time she fell, I caught her
Every time she fell

That’s my daughter in the water
I lost every time I fought her
Yeah, I lost every time…

*****

Every time she blinks
She strikes somebody blind
Everything she thinks
Blows her tiny mind

That’s my daughter in the water
Who’d have ever thought of her?
Who’d have ever thought?

That’s my daughter in the water
I lost every time I fought her
Yeah, I lost every time…

Everything

She sees, she says she wants

Everything

She wants, I see she gets

That’s my daughter, in the water

Everything she owns I bought her

Everything she owns

That’s my daughter, in the water

Everything she knows I taught her

Everything she knows

Everything

I say, she takes to heart

Everything

She takes, she takes apart

That’s my daughter, in the water

Every time she fell I caught her

Every time she fell

That’s my daughter, in the water

I lost every time I fought her

I lost every time

Every time

She blinks, she strikes somebody blind

Everything

She thinks, blows her tiny mind

That’s my daughter, in the water

Who’d have ever thought?

Who’d have ever thought?

That’s my daughter, in the water

I lost every time I fought her

I lost every time
