Be good to my little baby girl
She's all I got left in this old world
She's warm and she's sweet
Lord she means the world to me
Be good to my little baby girl.
Her eyes light up when I mention your name
Lately she smiles all the time
She needs someone strong who won't do her wrong
I'm hoping that you'll be the kind.
I can see her as a child sittin' on her mama's knee
Sometimes I think I failed her back then
'Cause I was runnin' wild I was always runnin''round
I never was the dad I should have been.
She told you of her past of the ones that done her wrong
You know her heart's been broken in two
She deserves some happiness and she thinks you're the best
I believe her so I'm counting on you.
