My Little Girl

Lyrics

She was born on July 4th
A big celebration
With lots of fireworks

She was a sweetheart at one
Never cried a tear
Always smiled from ear to ear

She was an angle at three
Entertained us all
By what she could do and say

She’s Sill my little girl
Still holds my little world

She was a princess at five
Wore frilly little dresses
And served us all a cup of tea

She was a teacher at ten
Taught the neighbor’s kids
And us all what it meant

She was a queen at thirteen
She wore the crown
And made us all so very proud

She’s Sill my little girl
Still holds my little world
Still makes me cry
Still makes me wonder why
She had to go away and I never got to say goodbye

She was a heartbreaker at sixteen
Until her heart was broken
By a driver she was taken

She was hit on the corner of 19th
Just crossing the street
By someone who had, had a drink

She never saw twenty
Never walked down the isle
And never had a chance to say goodbye

She’s Sill my little girl
Still holds my little world
Still makes me cry
Still makes me wonder why
She had to go away and I never got to say goodbye
