That’s My Daughter

‘Daughter’ by Loudon Wainwright III

So I took the perfect and accurate words of the song, and set photos of my daughter Abigail to it.

The words, I think, are spectacularly fitting.

Words:

Everything she sees
She says she wants
Everything she wants
I see she gets

That’s my daughter in the water
Everything she owns I bought her
Everything she owns
That’s my daughter in the water
Everything she knows I taught her
Everything she knows

Everything I say
She takes to heart
Everything she takes
She takes apart

That’s my daughter in the water
Every time she fell I caught her
Every time she fell
That’s my daughter in the water
I lost every time I fought her
I lost every time

Every time she blinks
She strikes somebody blind
Everything she thinks
Blows her tiny mind

That’s my daughter in the water
Who’d have ever thought her?
Who’d have ever thought?
That’s my daughter in the water
I lost every time I fought her
Yea, I lost every time
