Daddy's Little Girl

1 night when my daughter was 4 she said she wanted to "stay little". I said "I hope you do for a while". 2 years later she said "will you love me when I'm bigger?" and I said, "Kayla, you'll always be my little girl"

I held you in my arms
When you weren't quite 2
I saw your sweet brown eyes
And I really loved you

You were Daddy's Little Girl
Daddy's Little Girl

I watched you grow each day
You turned 3, then 4, then 5
We had fun & played together
You really came alive

You were Daddy's Little Girl
Daddy's Little Girl

Kindergarten and First Grade
I saw you then turn 6
You were bigger yet still charming
At the playground you were quick

You were Daddy's Little Girl
Daddy's Little Girl

You have just turned 7
You are a gift from heaven
Each day you're still growing
Your charming face is glowing

You are Daddy's Little Girl
Daddy's Little Girl

Someday you'll come see me
With a child or 2
When my hair has turned to gray
I'll smile at you and say

You're still Daddy's Little Girl
Daddy's Little Girl
