Since the day they got married
He'd been praying for a little baby boy
Someone he could take fishing
Throw the football and be his pride and joy

He could already see him holding that trophy
Taking his team to state
But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket
All those big dreams changed

And now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All-American girl

Sixteen short years later
She was falling for the senior football star
Before you knew it he was dropping passes
Skipping practice just to spend more time with her

The coach said, 'Hey son, what's your problem?
Tell me have you lost your mind'
Daddy said 'You'll lose your free ride to college,
Boy, you better tell her goodbye'

But now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All-American

And when they got married and decided to have one of their own
She said, 'Be honest, tell me what you want'
And he said, 'Honey you ought to know'

A sweet, little, beautiful, one just like you
Oh, a beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All-American

Now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All-American girl

All-American girl

    This song is pretty funny. Te dad wanted a boy, but he got gyped and got a girl instead. kinda like I wanted a baby brother but I got a sister instead. Then, when I finally got a baby brother, I wanted another sister. xD
