High tide in the cool of the mist
Walking in the shadows of the trade ships

I'll be your baby, I will not be your man
I will not be around when you call
Oh daddy, I'll be daddy's little girl

Black water, the warm summer rain
Washes your tears in to the big snake
Into the ocean and your skin is so white under harbour light

Should you fall I'll be your baby, say I'll be daddy's little girl
Oh daddy, I'm all alone now

Hush little baby, don't you cry, I will sing you a lullaby
It's high tide in the still of your room and the big snake's a crawling
Through the smoke and perfume

To be your baby, I will not be your man, I will be around when you fall
I'll be your baby, I'll be daddy's little girl
Say it be my daddy, I'll be daddy's little girl
Oh daddy, we're all alone now
Won't you be my daddy? We're all alone now
