    I guess that's why he left me waiting in the living room by myself
    with at least a dozen pictures of her sitting on a shelf

    - Chorus -

    She was playing Cinderella
    She was riding her first bike
    Bouncing on the bed and looking for a pillow fight
    Running through the sprinkler with a big popsicle grin
    Dancing with her dad, looking up at him
    In her eyes i'm Prince Charming
    But to him i'm just some fella
    riding in and stealing Cinderella

    I leaned in towards those pictures to get a better look at one
    When I heard a voice behind me say "Now, ain't she something, son?"
    I said "Yes, she quite a woman"
    and he just stared at me
    Then I realized that in his eyes she would always be

    Playing Cinderella
    Riding her first bike
    Bouncing on the bed and looking for a pillow fight
    Running through the sprinkler with a big popsicle grin
    Dancing with her dad, looking up at him
    In her eyes i'm Prince Charming
    But to him i'm just some fella
    riding in and stealing Cinderella

    He slapped me on the shoulder
    Then he called her in the room
    When she threw her arms around him
    That's when I could see it too

    Playing Cinderella
    Riding her first bike
    Bouncing on the bed and looking for a pillow fight
    Running through the sprinkler with a big popsicle grin
    Dancing with her dad, looking up at him
    If he gives me a hard time
    I can't blame the fella
    I'm the one who's stealing Cinderel
    Too funny you mentioned this. My mom told me last night to listen to this song to see if I liked it. I went on Freenapster.com to hear it, and I think its a very pretty song, but I feel like i wanted something more personal between me and my dad.. this one is kinda like the FI singing.. now what I mean?

        Aw that is sweet though that you picture your dad when you hear it. If thats the sace I'd def go with it. It is SO hard to decide isnt it. I may use it too, but I just wanst sure b/c of that one reason. Besides that though its a gr8 song!

        I just listend to the Tim McGraw "My Little Girl" and I filled up...I'm such a sap anymore I swear. BOOOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO (<-- thats me crying)

            Haa! Must be all the emotional song talk and Valentine's day and almost Friday (that enough excuses).

            My sis recently got married and used My Little Girl so I was trying not to copy. Love that one though!

              my dad was always a huge muppets fan and ever since i was a baby and while growing up my dad would sit me on the floor with him and we would watch the muppets and eat liccore. so my intial thought was that rainbow connection by kermit would be the best pick but then i'd seen it used too much so it turned me off.

              i came up with a great alternative! daughter by loudon wainwright III. it is VERY appropiate for my father and i, it emcompasses our relationship to a tee!

              what can i say i'm a daddy's girl!

                OK girls... I need suggestions... My biological father was never a part of my life. My step dad has been there since I was three and has raised me. BUT we have never been really really close. I am trying to figure out if I should opt out of the father daughter dance. I am having him give me away. What do you girls think? Can you think of a song that would work? Should I opt out? I'm so jealous of you girls with the close bond with your Dad.. treasure it always.

                  wow you girls totally made me cry!

                  i originally wanted to dance with my father to that tune from "the godfather" ... it's his very favorite movie and he used to call me his little mafia princess (we are SO not *that* italian, so it's more of an inside joke between us). then my niece got married a few years ago and danced with my dad (her grandfather) since her father wasn't there, and SHE used it. so now it's out. i was upset over it at the time, but i got over it.

                  except that he heard that "i loved her first" song and loves it ... i *really* don't like country but i have to admit the lyrics are beautiful. i just really didn't want a weepy song.

                    i danced w/ my dad to "i loved her first". i don't like country, but i told him that he could pick whatever he wanted. we talked thru it so he didn't cry too much.

                      Okay, I have posted this so many times, but I think this is the most beautiful song... maybe not for father daughter dance, but DEFINITELY play it for your dad... Kendall Payne "Daddy"... so great
