He wasn't prepared for a daughter he thought how nice a son would have been
But she had her way with her father when she smiled at him
Years ago he stopped trying to change her he knew that he just couldn't win
She'd come home with stray dogs and strangers
He's have to let 'em in when she smiled at him
Now those old memories linger in his mind she's still only ten
And he's still wrapped round her finger like the first time when she smiled at him
[ ac.guitar ]
When he gave her away at the wedding he paused for a moment and then
He whispered I think now I'm ready when she smiled at him
Now as the years fade into each other he may forget some things now and then
But her face now so much like her mother's carries him back again
To when she smiled at him
Now those old memories linger...
And he's still wrapped round her finger like the first time when she smiled at him
