Great Expectations

(Ian Hunter)

Now my little girl's a cute little thing
But she ain't grown up much yet
She plays with the toys
N' she plays with the boys
And you never know what to expect

She does what she wants
She says what she wants
Cause she knows what she wants - she gets
And she tells me lies, she makes me worry a lot
And I never know what to expect

Well you never know what, you never know what,
you never know what - comes next
They tell you lies, they make you worry a lot
And you never know what to expect

Now my little girl likes to travel a lot
She thinks she's one of the jet set
She talks to strangers
She don't care about the dangers
And she never knows what to expect

I said, "You little Creep
You're in too deep
You're gonna get your neck wet
Stop messin' with the boogers in the parking lot
Cause you never know what to expect"

I said, you never know what, you never know what,
you never know what - comes next
You're messing with the boogers in the parking lot
And you never know what to expect (do ya?)

Her old man came to the house last night
He said, "I'm just a little bit upset"
I said, "What's she done?"
He said, "Everyone!"
I said, "You never know what to expect"

No you never know what, no you never know what,
no you never know what - comes next
You love 'em to death, and in the very next breath
You never know what to expect

You never know what, you never know what,
you never know what - comes next
But like it or not, you're all that I've got
You never know what to expect

You never know what to expect
I got great expectations (great expectations)
I got great expectations (great expectations)
You know, I got great expectations (great expectations)
I got great expectations (great expectations)

You never know what, you never know what,
you never know what - comes next
You love 'em to death, and in the very next breath
You never know, you never know, you never know what
