Lyrics

That's What Daddies Do

When you were a little girl and you'd fall and scrape your knee
You'd run to me and say 'Daddy make it better'
In the middle of the night whenever bad dreams came
You'd call my name and say 'Daddy make it better
Then I'd wrap you in my arms, I could always make you smile
And I'd wait for you to say, " Daddy, I'm okay"

That's what daddies do, they keep you safe and sound
This I promise you, I'll always be around
You made me realize that I love you more than life itself
You know it's true
Coz that's what daddies do

At seventeen and proud, you said you'd get there on your own
Then you'd call me on the phone and say, "Daddy I'm in trouble"
And I'd grab the tools and drive, it never mattered just how far
I'd fix your broke down car, and say Baby, it's no trouble
And before you drove away, you'd roll that window down
You'd wave to me and say, "Daddy, I'm okay"

That's what daddies do, they keep you safe and sound
This I promise you, I'll always be around
You made me realize that I love you more than life itself
You know it's true
Coz that's what daddies do

As I walk you down the aisle
And it's time to let you go
And it hurts more than you know...

Then he takes you by the hand, I can see you start to smile
And I know you'll be okay, when I hear him say

'I Do'... I'll keep you safe and sound
This I promise you, I'll always be around
You made me realize that I love you more than life itself
You know this much is true

(spoken)That's when I cried like a baby

Coz that's what daddies do
That's what daddies do
