Magic 8

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."
