My Little Girl

Gotta hold on easy as I let you go
Gonna tell you how much I love you
Though you think you already know
I remember I thought you looked like an angel
Wrapped in pink so soft and warm
You’ve had me wrapped around your finger
Since the day you were born

Beautiful baby from the outside in
Chase your dreams but always know the road
That’ll lead you home again
Go on, take on this whole world
But to me you know you’ll always be
My little girl

When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could
Melt my heart of stone
Now look at you, I’ve turned around
And you’ve almost grown
Sometimes you’re asleep I whisper “I Love You!”
In the moonlight at your door
As I walk away, I hear you say
“Daddy Love You More!”


Someday, some boy will come, and ask me for your hand
But I won’t say “yes” to him unless I know
He’s the half that makes you whole
He has a poet’s soul – and the heart of a man’s man
I know he’ll say that he’s in love – but between you and me
He won’t be good enough!
