Mama, where's your pretty little girl tonight?
Trying to run before she can walk, that's right
She's growing up, she has a young man waiting
She's growing up, she has a young man waiting

Wide eyes, she'll be street-wise
To the lies and the jive talk
But she'll find true love
And tenderness on the block

Daddy, don't you ask her when she's coming in
And when she's home don't ask her where she's been
She's going out, she has a young man waiting
She's going out, can't keep her young man waiting

She'll be okay, let her have her day
'Cause it's a long way, it's a long walk
But she'll find true love
And tenderness on the block

I know how much it hurts to see her go
She has a mind of her own, you know
She's all grown up, she has a young man waiting
She's all grown up, she has a young man waiting

She was wide-eyed, now she's street-wise
To the lies and the jive talk
But she'll find true love
And tenderness on the block

She'll find true love
And tenderness on the block
