There's two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven and she's Daddy's Little Girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all


For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy,
It's my first ride"
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy,
But I sure tried"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning and butterfly kisses at night


Sweet sixteen today
She's looking like her momma a little more every day
One part woman, the other part girl
To perfume and make-up, from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world
But I remember


Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"You know how much I love you, Daddy,
But if you don't mind,
I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night


All the precious time
Oh, like the wind the years go by
Precious butterfly
Spread your wings and fly


She'll change her name today
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away
Standing in the brideroom just staring at her
She asks me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not sure -
I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl"
Then she leaned over and gave me


Butterfly kisses with her momma there
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk me down the aisle, Daddy,
It's just about time"
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy?
Daddy, don't cry!"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses
I couldn't ask God for more, man, this is what love is
I know I've got to let her go
But I'll always remember
Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses

    it only shows how hard it is for fathers to let go of there precious daughters. they are with them from birth and the time comes when its time to let there daughters be with the man they chooses for life. those daughters who are with their fathers now are lucky because they could have the chance to be with them in there most special event in their life, and its walking with them to the altar of marriage. i lost my father a year ago and with this song i missed him a lot. i never did showed him how special he is to me. but i know wherever he is, he never left me. love you pa!
