Daughter, don't give your love to the first man you see. Just bide your time so your heart will be free to find the one, Girl you don't have to run. Daughter, don't think that love has gone out of style, Just some folks every once in a while don't understand How this world was planned. Now I know you're wondering how You know when the real thing is comin' your way, When you live for him and not you You'll know that it's truly comin' to stay. Daughter, I know it's hard to make yourself wait, But when the right man comes it's never too late So don't you cry , He'll be here by and by, and steal your heart away.
