I have to tell you something 

About this little girl. 

She's a devil and an angel

All in one big swirl. 

When I'm feeling down

Ahe turns my frown around. 

She's my little gold digger 

Who always dreams of being bigger. 


She Can't wait till she's six 

Thinks she's gonna learn so many new tricks. 

All I know 

Is she's gonna grow. 


So, when she turned and asked me just the other day 

Where is daddy going? Is he going away? 

My eyes, they filled with water, 

I just, didn't know what to say. 

How could Dad leave his daughter in such a sudden way? 


She was only little! She didn't have a clue!

Her heart was still so brittle. She couldn't Cope like me or you...

So I put my arm around her and I whispered in her ear, 

It's a secret darling we can't let anyone else here. 

Daddy has a secret that he has to hide,

He's a superhero in a really good disguise.


BUT, he's better than spider man! Batman too!

I, was his biggest fan, You'll realise soon...



My little sister turned to me, and do you know what she said?

You don't have to lie to me just because I'm not six yet.
