My dad, now here is a man
To me he is everything strong
No, he can’t do wrong, my dad
My dad, now he understands
When I bring him troubles to share
Oh, he’s always there, my dad
When I was small I felt ten feet tall
When I walked by his side
And everyone would say “That’s his daughter”
And my heart would burst with pride
My dad, oh I love him so
Your girls
