It was a spring day in ohio
You were such a special child
Let's hold you out the window
Oh just see the small crowd smile
Let's take you home and make a fuss
Let's cram you down their throats
And wait 'til daddy sees you
He wants only just to please you
He is at the corner bar
This is your life
How do you like it so far.

Well, they are tryin' hard to like you
Can you blame 'em if they don't
You could tell them all the things you know
It might kill 'em so you won't
And you keep your eyes wide open
And you know when to disappear
Wait 'til daddy needs you
He wants only just to tease you
So you go drivin' in his car
This is your life
How do you like it so...

Far down the road from me
She is miles away where she can breathe
She is free
I've always been (free) free.

She lives far down the road from me
She is miles away where she can breathe
And you can't take that away from me
She is free
I've always been (free, free) free.

It was on a spring day in ohio
That's where all of the plans were laid
Where they teach ya how to smile
And be a good girl every day
Well I had my own secret
And it was shining in the sky
Wait 'til daddy frees you
He meant only just to please you
But I was wishin' on a star
Now this is my life
How do you like it so far.
