On the streets where you live girls talk about their social lives
They`re made of lipstick, plastic and paint
a touch of sable in their eyes
All your life, all your life,
all you`ve asked when's your daddy gonna talk to you
she was living in an other world
Tryin' to get her message through

No-one heard a single word you said
they should have seen it in your eyes
What was going round your head

Ooh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast
All those things he couldn't say
Ooh she's a little runaway

A different line every night, guaranteed to blow your mind
I see you out on the streets
Combing for a wild time
So you sit home alone 'cause there's nothing left that you can do
There's only pictures hung in the shadows
Left there to look at you

You know she likes the lights at night on the neon Broadway signs
She don't really mind
It's only love she hopes to find

Ooh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast
All those things he couldn't say
Ooh she's a little runaway

No-one heard a single word you said
They should have seen it in your eyes
What was going round your head

Ooh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast
All those things he couldn't say

Ooh she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast
Now she works the night away
(Repeat to fade)
