Daddy she's sorry she can't stay
She must grow up and be on her way
Daddy you must let go of her
It's too late she's growing up you see
She must get out on her own
And see those things that to her are unknown
Daddy sorry to let you know
She's growing up and it's not happening slow
She's got a whole big world in front of her
No longer can she be the baby
For she's becoming a lady
No time to watch for Daddy at the gate
Tonight she's got a big hot date
Sorry it happened so fast
But little girl is in the past
Daddy she knows she's in this great big world
But there's always time to be Daddy's little girl
