lyrics

look at that girl she’s painting faces
colorful swirls make dreams seem real
a world of smiling spaces
that’s what you get when you paint what you feel
look at that girl she’s going places
zipping up boots there’s rain outside
pink coat and back-teeth braces
marching off to school i burst with pride

she’s such a beautiful girl, she’s the queen of her world
she’s got a wonderful mind, she’s my one of a kind

look at that girl that concentration
knitting or cleaning or pumpkin seeds
writes in her diary a picture of patience
story on the stereo is all she needs

look at that girl that lovely music
singing out the beatles or making up songs
her smile might seem cherubic
don’t be fooled she’s going strong
she goes on and on and on

she’s such a beautiful girl, she’s the queen of her world
she’s got a powerful heart, beats the top of the chart
and did I mention she’s smart

but when she’s angry it’s a world of scream, scream, scream
her brother bugs her she turns on the mean, mean, mean
objects flying it’s a dangerous scene

but when she quiets it’s a world of love, love, love
from underwater to the clouds above
and when she smiles autumn leaves turn to green
and when she laughs, well, life is a dream,
a dream, a dream

look at that girl she’s growing older
seven, now eight, soon twenty-four
every day her heart grows bolder
every day I love her more, and more and more and more

she’s such a beautiful girl, she’s the queen of her world
she’s got a wonderful mind, she’s my one of a kind
she’s such a beautiful girl, she’s such a beautiful girl
happy birthday girl
