Will you be just like me,
A mother and a wife?
Little girl, you could choose
Another style of life.

If you wish, you may choose
To travel throughout space.
Or be a fashion model,
You've such a pretty face.

You could be a secretary,
An actress, or beautician.
I wouldn't be a bit surprised
To see a politician!

You could be a ballerina,
You have such style and grace.
You might even bring home the gold
From a U.S. Olympic race!

You could do just anything,
The choice is up to you.
And you know that I'll be proud
Of everything you do.

One day you might be a bride,
In a gown as white as pearl.
But no matter what you might be,
You'll always be, my little girl.
