lyrics

With three boys
You beat the odds at one in eight
And I can hear you saying
You would have loved a daughter...

Oh was I held as your daughter would be held?
Did I cry as your daughter would have cried?
You wanted a daughter
I would be your daughter plait my hair
You wanted a daughter
I’ll be your daughter plait my hair...

With one love!
You beat the odds at god knows what
And I know it’s hard
He’s not that empathetic
He has a heart
But struggles to access it, express it

And he expects emotional labour from you
And it’s not fair
We’re all capable
But boys don’t learn
Did you teach me?

Oh was I held as your daughter would be held?
Did I cry as your daughter would have cried?
You wanted a daughter
I would be your daughter plait my hair

And he expects emotional labour from you
And it’s not fair
We’re all capable
But boys don’t learn
Did you teach me?
