  • She ain't got my smile, that don't bother me a bit
    She's got somebody else's eyes I'm seein' myself in
    I'm holdin' onto every moment, God knows I've missed a few
    The day we met I knew I had some catchin' up to do

    She ain't my blood, ain't got my name
    But if she did, I'd feel the same
    I wasn't there for her first steps
    But I ain't missed a ball game yet
    And that ain't ever gonna change
    I could never walk away
    Yeah, she's my baby, my whole world
    She ain't my blood, but she's my, she's my girl

    It hit me like a train, the first time she called me dad
    In a three stick figure crayon picture with all of us holdin' hands
    Her mama said, "I understand if it's too soon for this"
    No, I didn't let her finish, I took it to the kitchen and I stuck it on the fridge, yeah

    She ain't my blood, ain't got my name
    But if she did, I'd feel the same
    I wasn't there for her first steps
    But I ain't missed a ball game yet
    And that ain't ever gonna change
    I could never walk away
    Yeah, she's my baby, my whole world
    She ain't my blood, but she's my, she's my girl

    She's Saturday morning cartoons
    She's, "Hey, can I sleep in your room?"
    She's bigger than the plans I had
    She's makin' me a better man

    She ain't my blood, ain't got my name
    But if she did, I'd feel the same
    I wasn't there for her first steps
    But I ain't missed a ball game yet
    And that ain't ever gonna change
    I could never walk away
    Yeah, she's my baby, my whole world
    She ain't my blood, but she's my, she's my girl
    Yeah, she's my, she's my girl
