Daughter Of Mine

These are the thoughts, of a father
On the wedding day of his daughter
As his mind, wanders back, to the first time he held her
He looks at her now, the same pride in his eyes
As onto the dance floor they glide
This, is the dance of the bride and her father:

Dance with me daughter of mine
On this, your wedding day
Dance with me daughter of mine
You’ll soon, be going away
I loved you since, you first began
Now you’ve found a new man
But I, love you so – And this you must know
That my, love won’t falter
So dance with me daughter
Beautiful daughter, daughter of mine

We walk down the aisle, On my face there’s a smile
But deep in my heart there’s a tear
Our friends and relations, are here in the church
With smiles on their faces they stare
As we walk t’ward the man, who has stolen your heart
And to whom I must give you away
But I, wish you love, and happiness too
On this, your,wedding day


The dance has begun, we twirl around the floor
But I know, you’re not my little girl anymore
A lovely young woman, has taken her place
And there’s happiness, written, all over her face
But always remember, although we must part…
Your may leave my arms but never my heart
