Daddy’s Little Girl

Just one more thought about yesterday’s selection—Watching Scotty Grow by Bobby Goldsboro.  I think it would be interesting to play the song for a class studying the stages of development and ask them to identify those stages as they relate to the song lyrics.  Just a thought.  FYI—The lyrics tell us that Scotty is four years old.

Today’s song follows the same theme as yesterday but explores the relationship between a dad and his little girl.  It’s another touching one, so get your tissues ready!

This video is beautifully done.

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

You 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"

Your 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

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

Your 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

Have a Fresh FACS day!
