Lyrics: I LOVE MY DAUGHTER, WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY?
I WAS ONLY 24, SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY
I HEARD HER FIRST CRY AS SHE CAME INTO THIS WORLD
THE NURSE HANDED HER TO ME AND SAID “TAKE OF THAT GIRL”

TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
AND TREAT HER RIGHT
TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
MAKE HER SMILE
RAISE HER STRONG
TEACH HER RIGHT FROM WRONG
STAND BESIDE HER ALONG
JUST TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL

IT WAS HARD TO LET HER GO WHEN SHE TURNED SIXTEEN
HER FIRST DATE WITH WHATS HIS NAME?, SHE JUMPED IN THAT JEEP
MY HEART IT SANK, I WAS A LITTLE UNSURE
AS I SHOOK HIS HAND, I SAID “HAVE FUN, TAKE OF THAT GIRL”

TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
AND TREAT HER RIGHT
JUST TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
MAKE HER SMILE
SHE’LL ALWAYS BE MY BABY
I LOVE HER CAN’T YOU SEE
WON’T YOU PROMISE ME
JUST TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL

TODAY SHE’S GONNA TAKE YOUR LAST NAME
SON I GOTTA TELL YOU ONE LAST THING
BEFORE I GIVE HER AWAY

TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
TREAT HER RIGHT
TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY GIRL
MAKE HER SMILE
SHE’LL ALWAYS BE MY BABY
I LOVE HER CAN’T YOU SEE
WON’T YOU PROMISE ME
JUST TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL
TAKE CARE OF THAT GIRL

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
