From Barbie dolls to ballet shoes
From roller skates to lipstick and rouge
She's become a lady overnight

I try to tell myself I can't help what I feel - then I remember
She's somebody's daughter
Somebody's child
Somebody's pride and joy
Somebody loves her for who she is inside
She has a mother and father
She's somebody's daughter
