Daughter - don't give your love to the first man you see.

Girl you don't have to run.
Daughter - don't think that love has gone out of style,

How this world was planned.
Now I know you're wondering how
You know when the real thing is comin' your way,
When you live for him and not you
You'll know that it's truly comin' to stay.
Daughter - I know it's hard to make yourself wait,
But when the right man comes it's never too late
So don't you cry ,
