In the house of "Nobody Cares,"
Little "Miss No-one" lived with her prayers;
Never knowing love's tender hug,
She longed to find someone to love;
One day love came her way,
And the whole world heard her say:
"My Daddy Long Legs,
You've made my life worthwhile;
My Daddy Long Legs,
You've taught me how to smile,
When I saw your shadow on the wall,
The one that the sunbeams drew;
My Daddy Long Legs,
I fell in love with you."

Who turned all the grey clouds to blue,
My Daddy Long Legs, no one but you;
Who dried all the tears in my eyes,
Who made the sun shine in the skies?
Ev'ry prayer that I say;
I'll forever end this way:
"My Daddy Long Legs,
You've made my life worthwhile;
My Daddy Long Legs,
You've taught me how to smile,
When I saw your shadow on the wall,
The one that the sunbeams drew;
My Daddy Long Legs,
I fell in love with you."
