He wasn't prepared for a daughter
He thought how nice a son would have been
But she had her way with her father
When she smiled at him

Years ago he stopped trying to change her
He knew that he just couldn't win
She'd come home with stray dogs and strangers
And he'd have to let 'em in when she smiled at him

Now those old memories linger
In his mind she's still only ten
And he's still wrapped round her finger
Like the first time when she smiled at him

When he gave her away at the wedding
He paused for a moment and then
He whispered, I think now I'm ready
When she smiled at him

Now as the years fade into each other
He may forget some things now and then
But her face now so much like her mother's
Carries him back again to, when she smiled at him

Now those old memories linger
In his mind she's still only ten
And he's still wrapped round her finger
Like the first time when she smiled at him

And he's still wrapped round her finger
Like the first time when she smiled at him
