The first time...
Oooh crap, didn't catch the father-daughter part.
Warren Zevon's Keep Me In Your Heart would be a great one (beautifully written tune,very heartfelt and written for his grandhild), but it's sodepressing (he wrote it knowing he was dying and not sure if he'd live to see his grandchild's birth) your guests may be jumping out the windows by theend of it.
I'd look through Van Morrison's catalog; he's bound to have a few good ones in there.
Butterfly Kisses- by Bob Carlisle
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 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."
In all that I've done wrong I know I must
have done something right to deserve a hug
every morning and butterfly kisses at night.
Sweet 16 today
She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
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."
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
Like the wind, the years go by.
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 asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not
sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
She leaned over...gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk my 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 your love every morning and butterfly
kisses-I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is.
I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses.
(It's actually listed under father-daughter dances when I searched for the lyrics too).
Smack my bitch up - Prodigy
thanks for your posts - have decided to go with Stevie Wonder - isn't she lovely.
Because i am... so lovely... hahaha, well my pa thinks so anyway!
We are getting married overseas on a beach and I have handpicked every song (ipod to speaker) and it has been an extremely difficult task...
Without the right music the party could be a total fizzer. Well i'll let you know how it goes in a couple of weeks.
Good find....I guess I got that idea from the Chicago DVD....I know Kite was written for his girls, yet during Elevation tour, it turned into asong for his Father....
Songs changed over time....amazing....
See you in Vegas....I can't wait....Make that fan meet-up....
We're staying @ NYNY so meeting up with rabid U2 fans Thursday night is a sure thing. I'll follow the Vegas thread to keep up to date. By theway,don't let those other thread-mongers get you down. You are an asset to message board & a cool dude as well.
