"Baby", he says, "You are like the clean white page and I the pen
The innocence I find in between your girlish thighs
Is like the fountain of youth to my old bones"
And she replies, "Daddy's little girl's a precocious child
I love to please, I'll do anything that you ask of me
Eager to fulfill all of Daddy's needs"
"Baby," he says, "I can never love older girls like I love you
You're easier to please and you never give me grief
'Cause you accept everything I say and do"
And she replies, "I'm in no position to make demands
I have no past, no one else has done to me what you do
I've got no one else to compare you to"
"And as you grow older
Try to act sixteen all your life
Old women grow bitter
Don't let that happen to you"
"And why is it charming
Pretending I'm younger than my years?
Why can't I grow up with dignity, set me free?"
"Baby," he says, "Now that you're older
I feel our love has died
Once upon a time you never criticized me
Oh, I much preferred you as a child"
And I reply, "Everything you said to me was a lie
I know your kind, you just want a daughter without a wife
You don't need a girlfriend, you need a life"
