"Scarlet Ribbons" as written by and Michael Ronald Ward Roisin Murphy....

From the cradle to the throne, my flesh & my bones
Is that the way it's supposed to be: how the story goes?
Ribbons and bows: like a thorn on a rose
When the one man who gave it all to you has to let you go

He found for me scarlet ribbons
Those scarlet ribbons for my hair
What becomes of a father's love, when another has his daughter's love?
Don't you know they'll never be above
I'll always be your little girl

It's all borrowed time and you always said I would regret it
If I grew up too fast, but my heart is strong and true
I'm doing fine, the things that you said, I won't forget 'em
I'll do as you ask and always play fair for you

You found for me scarlet ribbons
Those scarlet ribbons for my hair
What becomes of a father's love, when another has his daughter's love?
Don't you know they'll never be above
I'll always be your little girl

There's a part of you in every part me
(you should know better)
Maybe you should know I won't let that go
Long as I can cry on your shoulder
Won't be growing up just older
You have got to let me go

You found for me scarlet ribbons
Those scarlet ribbons for my hair
What becomes of a father's love, when another has his daughter's love?
Don't you know they'll never be above
I'll always be your little girl

I'll always be, always be your little girl
Always be, always be your little girl
Always be, always be your little girl
Always be, always be your little girl

You've got to let it go
You've got to let it go
You've got to let it go
