You know you brought your girl up well
So well that everyone can always tell
That you'd had some work to do
Thought she'd get the best of you

I'm glad that you never gave up on her
Shut the door, sent her away
You didn't know what else to say
But you loved her

You knew that she'd have to go
And taught her all the things 
She never wanted to know
Because she already knew everything

Didn't she?
And so, you kicked her out into
The bright light
And of course it started a fight
But it would be the last

Because she's trying
She's trying
Trying hard to do what you taught her to
She's trying, she's trying
Trying hard to be what you want her to

You know you brought your girl up well
So well the day she came and told you
She fell in love and packed her bags
You hid your smile, didn't laugh

You sat her down and told her the rules in love
Watch your back and trust no one
And most of all just don't forget
To get a prenup

And then when she ran away
And came running back the very next day
You didn't tell her that you told her so
Even though you knew that

She'd have to skate and break her own leg
And of course you'd be there to pick her up
It'd be enough

Because she's trying
She's trying
Trying hard to do what you taught her to
She's trying, she's trying
Trying hard to be what you want her to

You know you brought your girl up well
So well that even though she put you through hell
You figure it was worth it 
Even though it wasn't perfect

I'm glad that you never gave up on her
Shut the door, sent her away
You didn't know what else to say
But you loved her

You knew that she'd have to go
And taught her all the things 
She never wanted to know
Because she already knew everything

Didn't she?
And so, you kicked her out into
The bright light
And of course it started a fight
But it would be the last

Because she's trying
She's trying
Trying hard to do what you taught her to
She's trying, she's trying
Trying hard to be what you want her to
