Brian Mcknight – Marry Your Daughter lyrics

Sir, I'm a bit nervous
About being here today
Still not real sure what I'm going to say
So bare with me please
If I take up too much of your time.
See in this box is a ring for your oldest.
She's my everything and all that I know is
It would be such a relief if I knew that we were on the same side
Cause very soon I'm hoping that I...

Can marry your daughter
And make her my wife
I want her to be the only girl that I love for the rest of my life
And give her the best of me 'til the day that I die, yeah
I'm gonna marry your princess
And make her my queen
She'll be the most beautiful bride that I've ever seen
I can't wait to smile
When she walks down the aisle
On the arm of her father
On the day that I marry your daughter

She's been here every step
Since the day that we met
(I'm scared to death to think of what would happen if she ever left)
So don't you ever worry about me ever treating her bad
I've got most of my vows done so far
(So bring on the better or worse)
And 'til death do us part
There's no doubt in my mindddddd
It's time
I'm ready to start
I swear to you with all of my heart...

I'm gonna marry your daughter
And make her my wife
I want her to be the only girl that I love for the rest of my life
And give her the best of me 'til the day that I die, yeah
I'm gonna marry your princess
And make her my queen
She'll be the most beautiful bride that I've ever seen
I can't wait to smile
As she walks down the aisle
On the arm of her father
On the day that I marry your daughter

The first time I saw her
I swear I knew that I'd say I do

I'm gonna marry your daughter
And make her my wife
I want her to be the only girl that I love for the rest of my life
And give her the best of me 'till the day that I die
I'm gonna marry your princess
And make her my queen
She'll be the most beautiful bride that I've ever seen
I can't wait to smile
As she walks down the aisle
On the arm of her father
On the day that I marry your daughter

    Marry your daughter this song ay pra sa isang ama. Na kung ppwedeng pkasalan at gawing asawa ng isang guy ang kanyang anak. It doesn't mean dat this song is for a girl that you want to marry but this song is dedicated to a father. A father who takes good care of her daughter. A father dat love her daughter as a princess, a protector and a friend. That's the meaning of this song:) btw I'm a gurl.
    Haaay ilove him so much. Sana pag mka graduate na siya magssama na talaga kami:(hirap ag malayo sa isat isa. Mdami kaming mga pagsubok na hinarap. Kahit nung nalaman ko na my anak pla siya tinanggap ko pa din siya kc mahal na mahal ko siya. Ikaw pagnalaman mo na gnun iiwan mo agad un kung talagang mahal mo siya? Syempre hindi diba.? Oo aminin ko at 1st na hirapan akong tanggapin un, naisip ko paano na ako? Pero sabi niya kahit my anak na ko mahal na mahal pa din kita. Sabi ko pag alis niya babalik ka agad diba? Sabi nman niya oo babalik agad ako iloveyou so much. Kya hanggang ngayon umaasa pa din ako sa kanya kasi mahal na mahal ko yun. Sana bumalik siya agad:(

    I wish to sang this song to my girlfriend but suddenly we broke up and it's been one year since we broke up. She's the only girl I want to spend my life with. She was the one who introduce this song to me after we broke up. Hope we can still be together again and I will ask her to marry me if fate will bring us back together.

    I am so emotional upon hearing this song, tears can't stop falling from my eyes. All in my dreams only this things will surely happen. I was married not in time, so far from what I am dreaming of. But then I'm still proud regarding the flow of our marriage. I do pray that somehow in time, this things will be surely experience by my lovely daughter. Time never comes back for what kind of proposal I am wishing of all this time but the message of the song gives a lift to me, I don't know the reason but it surely does. =)

    The song is so very touching, he is asking from the father to marry his daughter. So very formal and very respectful to her family that nowadays is not observed and practiced. It really touches my heart that it really made my tears fall wishing back if my dad was just alive when I got married. I'm so proud of the guy doing that practice. I really like that song very much.

    God! From the very first time I heard this song. I felt like I was the one being serenaded. I actually asked my husband if he'll say those words to my father, when he was about to ask my hand from my family. And he smiled. This song really touched my heart and for sure all of those who've heard it. This is the best words that a man should say when he was about to ask his girlfriends' hand. That's it! Another great song from mr. Brian mc knight! All hands up!
