‘Little Girl’s Dad’ – Lyrics by Urthboy

I kept a little journal from before you were born
And wrote about the shape of mama’s belly you formed
I filled a lot of pages up inside that first six months
You notice every single movement and it’s all too much
Brought you back to our tiny two bedder in Dulwich Hill
Salute to the red brick—to some of us you’re still a big deal
You see I never thought I’d own my home but
Here we are as the sun sets,
neighbour chats away on his phone
They say you grow up so quick, I don’t know about that
But your clothes sure as hell do
And now lunch is getting packed and my diary lost track
So I’ve got something to tell you

/ CHORUS /
You ain’t daddy’s little girl, I’m a little girl’s dad
That’s the way it’s going to be
And I’m sorry you inherited a man’s world
Baby it’s not the way it’s got to be

You ain’t daddy’s little girl he’s a little girl’s dad
And it’s your world to take back
Cos the men are going to try and tell you
what you can and can’t be

And you ain’t going to stand for that

There’s so many textbooks, websites, experts
Telling you the way you should bring up your kid
When genetics kick in there isn’t a way of knowing anything
About the thousand lives you may live
We don’t keep it safe as we can possibly make it
Cos I don’t want to wrap you up in wool
Thought it was different but I was mistaken
If I ever led you to believe that we’re in control
I see your chubby little arms reaching up to be held
I just want to hold you tightly and shield any pain
With your head upon my shoulders
you can feel how the fire works
But also be protected from the heat of the flame
When it seems like despair in a broken world
Knowing I won’t be there and ready whenever you fall
You’re somebody’s revelation, ain’t nobody’s girl
So no matter what direction you walk,
kid you’ve got my support
They say you grow up so quick
I don’t know about that
Cos you learn with everything you do
Now the months are so packed and my diary lost track
So I’ve got something to tell you

/ CHORUS /

You make your mistakes; I’ve made mine
You do as you wish, take your time
Say whatever you think that’s your right
What does life in the other’s shoes look like?
You were born with a strength you could never hide
So when they try you push you to the side, push em right back
You don’t ever have to step aside
Because a lot of rules made well they don’t apply
You make your mistakes; I’ve made mine
You do as you wish, take your time
Little homie you don’t ever have to step aside
Because a lot of rules made well they don’t apply

/ CHORUS /
