Lyrics

Katie, Katie, what has he done to you?
Katie, what has he put you through?

Well, by the age of ten, she felt like she was sixty-four
Didn’t have the will to live her life no more
Every day, the knock came at her door
She knew just what that knock was for

Lying crying in the middle of her bed
Vicious thoughts filling up her precious head
Wishing for the world that she was dead

Katie, Katie, don’t let him hurt you now
Katie, don’t let him touch you now

A knock came at her door and a voice said
“Honey, don’t you cry any more — Daddy’s here to save his little girl

Do as I say, say not what I do
Oh Katie, Katie, don’t you know your Daddy loves you?

Roll over again for me, say you only love your Daddy
Promise me you’ll never leave, won’t you do that please, oh Katie?

Your mother doesn’t love me anymore
So I need you to give me what I have in store
One false move, and you’re out the door

Do as I say, say not what I do
Oh, Katie won’t you let your Daddy show how much he loves you?

‘Cause I’m the only one who will love you this way
The other boys will have you and then go away
But your Daddy’s here, and here he’ll stay, with Daddy’s little girl

Katie, Katie, don’t let him hurt you this way
Katie, don’t you know you’ve got to get away
Do as I say, say not what I do
Oh Katie, Katie, Katie, don’t you know your Daddy loves you?
Katie, Katie, don’t let him hurt you this way
Katie, don’t you know you’ve got to get away

By the age of twelve she felt like she was seventy-four
Didn’t have the will to live her life no more
Every night, the knock came at her door
And she knew just what that knock was for
I know just what you’re knocking for
