Dad in Blue

Daughter in Green

Together in Black

She’s getting older my baby – slipping away from me
Doesn’t seem that long ago – she was bouncing on my knee

Playing games on rainy days – instead of watching tv
Piggy-backs and sneak attacks – climbing up a tree

Making funny faces – amazed by things you say
You’re such a special part of me – and I’m afraid you’ll drift away
Don’t grow up on me

Swimming in the ocean – jumping all the waves
Daddy dig a hole for me – you’d always hear me say

Carry me like a fireman – so the crabs don’t bite my toes
Give me one more squeeze tonight – tell me something nobody knows

Sometimes you look so busy – and you don’t have time to play
You’re such a special part of me – and I’m afraid you’ll drift away

Don’t stop hugging me every morning

Don’t stop singing before bed

Don’t stop thinking I’m the greatest

Don’t forget the things I’ve said

Don’t grow up on me

It’s getting tougher to watch you now, flirting with the boys
I miss playing hide and seek, Mom yelling, “Keep down all that noise!

I liked riding the crazy rides – and dancing around the town
Loving daddy daughter days – when no one else was around

I know that we’re both changing

I’m gonna face the world

I just need you to always be

Daddy’s little girl

Don’t stop hugging me every morning

Don’t stop singing before bed

Don’t stop thinking I’m the greatest

Don’t forget the things I’ve said

Don’t grow up on me

Someday when you’re ready – I’ll have to give you away
As your fingers leave my hand – I’m sure you’ll hear me say

Don’t grow up on me
