  • Oh girl, wash your face before you come to the table
    Girl, know your place, be willing and able
    Take it on the chin, let the best man win
    Girl, shoulders back and stand up straight
    Girl, watch your mouth and watch your weight
    Mind your manners, smile for the camera

    And pose like a trophy on a shelf
    Dream for everyone, but not yourself
    I've heard of God the Son and God the Father
    I'm still looking for a God for the daughters

    Girl, don't be weak but don't be strong
    Say what you want, just as long
    As you nod your head with your lipstick on

    And pose like a trophy on a shelf
    Dream for everyone, but not yourself
    I've heard of God the Son and God the Father
    I'm just looking for a God for the daughters

    I wash the dishes, feed the kids, and clean up all this mess
    Do my best, forgive myself, and look good in this dress
    Damn, I look good in this dress

    And pose like a trophy on a shelf
    I'll dream for everyone, but not myself
    I've heard of God the Son and God the Father
    And damn, I love my son, I love my father
    I'm just looking for a God for the daughters
    I'm just looking for a God for the daughters

    For the daughters
    I'm just looking for a God
    For the daughters, for the daughters Writer/s: Ashley Ray, Karen Fairchild, Sean Michael McConnell
