Not Just Yet

Just because your body thinks its ready 
Does not mean your mind is
Just because you’re dating and going steady
Does not mean your ready
It isn’t your freedom or love I want to stifle
And I won’t be chasing any boys away with my rifle
But till I’m dead and buried, you’ll always be my little girl
 
Just because your friends say they’re doing it
Doesn’t mean you got to join the club
You may come to find some of your friends are full of it
All I ask is to hold on until you can drink in a pub
It isn’t your spirit I’d ever want to crush
Because I’m your dad and I think it best you don’t rush
Believe me, you’ll always be my little girl
 
I don’t care what you saw on TV
I don’t care what you read in a magazine
I don’t care what you were taught in the classroom
I don’t care what your friends said, or what your boyfriend sez
Just because your body thinks its ready 
Does not mean your mind is
 
Even if I ever find you in you twenties
Curled up on a bathroom floor after a hurl
I’ll still be your daddy and you’ll always be my little girl
