It seems like only yesterday
With a teardrop in my eye
That you were born into this world
With a whimper and a cry
The days flew by and turned to weeks
The weeks almost a year
And every time you learn something new
I get that same ol' tear
I guess it's cause you're growing up
But to me it's just too fast
I guess it's just that I'm afraid
Your innocence won't last
But as the years go stumbling by
One thing will remain true
You'll always be my baby girl
No matter what you do.
