When you came to be
So beautiful like a precious jewel
I grinned from ear to ear
My wife turned to me and said,
“Close you mouth, fool.”
Then you grew older
And you went off to grade school
I was crazy protective
Standing outside the building,
so very un-cool
You grew into a young lady
Beauty, grace and very smart
Young girls wanted to be like you
Gentlemen and thugs wanted your heart.
These young men, some were bold and called
You know that’s a game I never play
So I reached out to a tech nerd
he hooked it up
To record each and every word they would say.
Later in life, you meet David on the quad
He’s very high on the hubby meter
You said “Daddy I want to marry him”
He said “She’s a wonder, sir I would never cheat her
she’s the finest I ever saw”
Rebecca, I looked into your eyes and then I spoke
“Come on in son-in-law”.
