1. A Song For My Daughter - Ray Allaire

A Song For My Daughter Lyrics

(Written By Steve Moser, Mikki Viereck)

Just once upon a yesterday
I held you in my arms
You grew into a little girl
with lovely childhood charms
Now it seems I only turned around
And I see you by his side
Oh, I can't believe my eyes today
My daughter is a bride

I guess somehow I always knew
This day would soon be here
Still I wonder as I look at you
What became of all the years
And no words could ever quite express
The way I feel inside
Oh, I can't believe my eyes today
My daughter is a bride

All the laughter and the teardrops
The sunshine and the rain
I would relive every moment, Dear
If I could bring them all back again

But now, my love, the time has come
To send you on your way
So I wish you every happiness
And the blessings of this day
And I hope the love I've given you
Will forever be your guide
Oh, I can't believe my eyes today
My daughter - Oh, I can't believe my eyes

My daughter - Oh, my angel and my pride
My daughter is a bride

2. You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban

You Raise Me Up Lyrics

(Written By Rolf Løvland, Brendan Graham)

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... to more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... to more than I can be.

There is no life, no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... to more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... to more than I can be.

You raise me up... to more than I can be.

3. Isn’t She Lovely - Stevie Wonder

Isn’t She Lovely Lyrics

(Written By Stevie Wonder)

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she lovely
Life and love are the same
Life is Aisha
The meaning of her name
Londie, it could have not been done
Without you who conceived the one
That's so very lovely made from love

4. What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

What A Wonderful World Lyrics

(Written By Lou Adler, Herb Alpert, Sam Cooke)

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

5. Eighteen Yellow Roses - Bobby Darin

Eighteen Yellow Roses Lyrics

(Written By Marty Robbins)

Eighteen yellow roses came today
Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet
When the boy came to the door
I didn't know what to say
But, eighteen yellow roses came today.

I opened up the card to see what it said
I couldn't believe my eyes
When I had read
Though you belong to another I love you anyway
Yes, eighteen yellow roses came today.

I never doubted your love for a minute
I always thought that you would be true
But now this box and the flowers in it
I guess there's nothin' left for me to do.

But ask to meet the boy that's done this thing
And find out if he's got plans to buy you a ring
'cause eighteen yellow roses
Will wilt and die one day ...

But... a father's love will never fade away
Will never fade away...

6. A Little Ray Of Sunshine - Glen Shorrock (The Little River Band)

A Little Ray Of Sunshine Lyrics

(Written By Brian Cadd, Don Mudie)

Her fathers says she has to have a name,
not the same as her mom's, but a name just the same,
a little ray of sunshine has come into the world,
a little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl.

We'll show her the dress that she'll wear
with the gold flowing hair that nature provided
my little ray of sunshine has come into the world,
my little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl.

A little ray of sunhine -
I want to know if you think she looks good in the pink,
Grandma has bought her ... our own little daughter.

She can make you feel good,
she can make you feel that it's all worthwhile,
only by her smile, only by her smile ...

Have you noticed she's just like her father,
and I think that I'd rather
her hair was much darker,
my little ray of sunshine has come into the world,
my little ray of sunshine in the shape of a girl.

She can make you feel good,
she can make you feel that it's all worthwhile,
only by her smile, only by her smile, only by her smile ...
talkin' 'bout my little ray of sunshine,
my little ray of sunshine,
little ray of sunshine,
loittle ray, little ray, little ray,
sweet little darlin',
my little ray of sunshine, woa woa woa ... hmmmm ....

7. You Are the Sunshine of My Life - Stevie Wonder

You Are the Sunshine of My Life Lyrics

(Written By Stevie Wonder)

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning,
Though I've loved you for a million years,
And if I thought our love was ending,
I'd find myself drowning in my own tears

You are the sunshine of my life,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

You must have known that I was lonely,
Because you came to my rescue,
And I know that this must be heaven,
How could so much love be inside of you?

You are the sunshine of my life, yeah,
That's why I'll always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever you'll stay in my heart

[Background] Love has joined us,
Love has joined us,
Let's think sweet love

8. Daddy's Little Girl - Michael Bolton

Daddy's Little Girl Lyrics

(Written By Bobby Burke, Horace Gerlach)

You're the end of the rainbow, my pot of gold,
You're daddy's little girl to have and hold.
A precious gem is what you are,
A ray of hope, a shining star.

You're as bright as the sunshine
Morning's first light
You warm my day, you brighten my night
You're sugar you're spice, you're everything nice,
And you're daddy's little girl.

A precious gem that's what you are,
A ray of hope, a shining star.

You're as bright as the sunshine,
Morning's first light
You warm my day, you brighten my night
You're sugar you're spice, you're everything nice,
And you're daddy's little girl.

9. Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle

Butterfly Kisses Lyrics

(Written By Bob Carlisle)

There's two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven
And she's daddy's little girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life
Oh but most of all

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
Walk beside the pony daddy it's my first ride
I know the cake looks funny daddy but I sure tried

Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every mornin'
And butterfly kisses at night

Sweet 16 today
She's lookin' like her mama a little more every day
One part woman the other part girl
To perfume and make up from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world
But I remember

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
You know how much I love you daddy
But if you don't mind
I'm only gonna kiss you on the check this time

Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve her love every mornin'
And butterfly kisses at night

All the precious time
Like the wind the years go by
Precious butterfly
Spread your wings and fly

She'll change her name today
She'll make a promise and I'll give her aways
Standing in the bride room just staring at her
She asked me what I'm thinkin'
And I said I'm not sure
I just feel like I'm loosin' my baby girl
And she leaned over

Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
Walk me down the isle daddy
It's just about time
Does my wedding gown look pretty daddy?
Daddy's don't cry

Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right
To deserve her love every mornin'
And butterfly kisses

I couldn't ask God for more than this is what love is
I know I've got to let her go but I'll always remember
Every hug in the mornin' and butterfly kisses

10. Daddy's Girl - Peter Cetera

Daddy's Girl Lyrics

(Written By Jtodd Burroughs)

When the sun goes down and it's getting late
You say it's time for bed
She just takes her time
Acting like she never heard a word you said
Little baby wanna hold you tight
She don't ever wanna say good night
She's a lover, she wanna be Daddy's Girl
When the morning comes
And it's time to go start another day
She won't let you leave, and she does her best
To try to make you stay
Pretty baby gonna start to cry
She don't ever wanna say good bye
She's a lover, she wanna be Daddy's Girl

She don't ever wanna be without you
Never have to worry she won't doubt you
Then she puts her head upon your shoulder
Says she marry you when she get older

When the time has come, and she's old enough
To be on her own
She won't understand why you're feelin' sad
Cause she's leaving you all alone
Little woman gonna make you cry
You don't ever wanna say good bye
She's a lady, she'll always be Daddy's Girl

Little woman gonna break your heart
Gonna miss her when you're both apart
She's a lady, but she'll always be Daddy's Girl

She'll always be Daddy's Girl
She'll always be Daddy's Girl
She'll always be Daddy's Girl
She'll always be Daddy's Girl
She'll always be Daddy's Girl
She'll always be Daddy's Girl

11. Angel In My Arms - Jack Kapanka

Angel In My Arms Lyrics

(Written By Jack Kapanka)

On the day that you were born
A fear came over me
How was I to hold you
What would you grow to be
Yet when I held you in my arms
All my fears just went away
And I began to understand
You'd always make me feel that way

(Chorus)
You're an Angel in my arms
And how I love you so
Yet I know the day will come
That I'll have to let you go
Until then I'll hold you gently
With tenderness and care
And let you know your daddy
Forever will be there

When you were five and off to school
With pigtails in your hair
I wanted to go with you
Or somehow just be there
But when I walked you to the corner
To send you on your way
You turned around to hug me
And this was all that I could say

(Repeat Chorus)
You're an Angel in my arms
And how I love you so
Yet I know the day will come
That I'll have to let you go
Until then I'll hold you gently
With tenderness and care
And let you know your daddy
Forever will be there

There were times that we were best friends
And times we grew apart
But never was there one time
That you weren't in my heart

Now all at once the time has come
Your wedding day is here
Your mom and I are so proud
Yet still I shed a tear
Now as we step upon the dance floor
And I look into your eyes
I can see you truly love him
And I begin to realize

You'll be an angel in his arms
And how he'll love you so
Now at last the day has come
That I must let you go
Till this song ends I'll hold you gently
With tenderness and care
And let you know your daddy
Forever will be there

(Daughter to Father)
You've been an angel in my arms
And how I love you so
Yet dad the day has come
That you must let me go
Till this song ends please hold me gently
With tenderness and care

And I'll let you know your daughter
Forever will be there

In my heart I know my angel
Forever will be there

12. Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler

Wind Beneath My Wings Lyrics

(Written By Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley)

It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine, that's your way
You always walked a step behind
So I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name, for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I would like to be
If I can fly higher than an eagle
You are the wind beneath my wings
It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know I know the truth
Of course I know it
I would be nothing with out you

Fly, fly, fly away
You let me fly so high
Oh, fly, fly
So high against the sky
So high I almost touch the sky
Thank you, thank you, thank god for you
The wind beneath my wings

13. Daughter of Mine - John McDermott

Daughter of Mine Lyrics

(Written By Madeline Thomson)

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

Chorus:
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 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

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 of mine

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
You may leave my arms but never my heart

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 of mine
