Soap and water
Take the day from my hand
Scrub the salt from my stinging skin
Slip me loose of this wedding band

Soap and water
Hang my heart on a line
Scour it down in a wind of sand
Bleach it clean to a vinegar shine

Daddy's a dark riddle
Mama's a headful of bees
You are my little kite
Carried away in a wayward breeze

Soap and water
Wash the year from my life
Straighten all that we trampled and tore
Heal the cut we called husband and wife

Daddy's a dark riddle
Mama's a handful of thorns
You are my little kite
Caught up again in the household storms

Daddy's a dark riddle
Mama's a headful of bees
You are my little kite
Carried away in the wayward breeze

Songwriters
VEGA, SUZANNE
