Fall to the floor, you're always looking for more,
it's a quarter to six, but I've been up since four.
We don't wake up without a yawn, get your bowl of cereal, turn your TV on.
Sit down at the computer but I see the pile of bills,
round here it's everybody else's pockets but ours to fill.
Wanna know what my last will and testament says? "All of this, to you."
Wanna pick up my guitar but it's time to take you off to school.
And there you are.
And I drop you off but I forgot your change of clothes and your lunch
and you look me up and down with a frown,
til you crack a smile --
put me down, you say, aw, come on Daddy, you gonna pick me up from school today?

You got soul and you're always gonna be my girl.
You got soul and you're always gonna be my girl.

At quarter to three..
just when I'm starting to get creative,
time to catch a cab back down to 13th street.
You're standing on the steps with your teachers,
lookng for me, saying All the other babysitters came already.
Well I'm your dad and five minutes waiting for me can't be that bad.
I want to take you to the zoo.
I want to take you to the museum of natural history.
And on the way, on the subway, somebody stands up,
starts screaming about how he's got God,
and all the rest of us better start believe him.

You got soul and you're always gonna be my girl.
Oh, oh.. you got soul and you're always gonna be my girl.

YOu fall asleep on the way back home;
by the time your eyes open, I've carried you all the way
to our door from the subway.
And when you look up at me,
I wondered just what you see.
The last five years blew by so fast;
every second more these moments are passing.
How much of this will you remember?
Store your face in my mind forever
With a free hand, find a key in my pocket,
stick it into the door to unlock it.
Lay you down on the bed with your favorite pillow under your head.
Just when I think you're back to asleep, you look up and then you say
I need a glass of water.

You got soul and you're always gonna be my girl.
You got soul and you're always gonna be my girl.
Oh, oh.. you got soul and you're always gonna be my girl.
