Everybody thinks they've got you down
They think they know the girl they see around
They don't know the girl that I know wants to spread her wings and fly

Now you're on your own
What're you gonna do?
Call me on the telephone
And I will be there for you

Now you're on your own
What are you gonna do?

You know it's up to-
You were always daddy's little schoolgirl
Now you have to make it in this cruel world
Well they don't know the girl I know, the girl who wants to spread her wings and go

Now you're on your own
What're you gonna do?
Call me on the telephone
And I will be there for you

Now you're on your own
What are you gonna do?

You know—You know it's up to you
You were just a little girl who made me her friend
Now you—You were just a little girl who played pretend
Now you—You were just a little girl who changed her mind
Little girl I've made behind (?)

They don't know the girl I see, the girl who wants to spread her wings and be free

Now you're on your own
What're you gonna do?
Call me on the telephone
And I will be there for you

Now you're on your own
What are you goin' to do?

You know—You know it's up to you
