Butterfly Kisses (Rogers Kenny)

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 bride room 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
