Magic 8

Chords

 

8th grade and crying at the counter
4 a.m. and drowning in her work
3 textbooks spread out around her
1 overwhelmed little girl

Her dad walks into the kitchen
So hard to see her so stressed
Still dark but he's there to listen
She's scared of failing her tests

He says:
"My little girl before you worry at all
Have you asked the Magic 8 ball?”

And with a shake, shake of the Magic 8
Her stress melts away with a smile on her face
With a lifetime of love, and a small dash of fate
A dad takes care of his girl
A dad takes care of his girl

22 and panicked in her bedroom
20 outfits thrown on the bed
She's wanted this job since she was a kid and
1 interview is all that’s left

He has such faith in his daughter
He needs her to just believe
And just like any good father
He's got a trick up his sleeve

He says:
"My little girl before you worry at all
Have you asked the Magic 8 ball?”

And with a shake, shake of the Magic 8
Her stress melts away with a smile on her face
With a lifetime of love, and a small dash of fate
A dad takes care of his girl
A dad takes care of his girl

"I was naturally full of anticipation when Cody invited me to lunch last October
Because he had something he... 'wanted to discuss.’
When he finally quit beating around the bush and asked me
If he had my blessing to marry Carolyn,
Without hesitation, I consulted my mini Magic 8 Ball…
Which I never leave home without…”

Last year I'm sweatin' in a bench seat
I've got a speech well-rehearsed
I'm here to ask for his blessing
The father of that brave little nurse

So I start while I've still got courage
"Your daughter has become my best friend
And though I'm scared, I'm so nervous
I plan to ask for her hand”

He looks at me and with no words at all
He pulls out his Magic 8 ball…
And with a shake, shake of the Magic 8
My stress melts away and my fears are replaced
I can't see the words, but he says "It looks great…”

And with a shake, shake of the Magic 8
He says that I'm family and this is my place
With a lifetime ahead, and a small dash of fate
I will take care of your girl
I will take care of your girl

"But he was certainly relieved, and certainly in awe regarding the powers of the Magic 8 Ball.
And now that you're my son-in-law, you are welcome to borrow it any time."
