I'm five years old It's getting cold I've got my big coat on
I hear your laugh And look up smiling at you I run and run Past the pumpkin patch And the tractor rides Look now, the sky is gold I hug your legs And fall asleep on the way home
I don't know why all the trees change in the fall But I know you're not scared of anything at all Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away But I know I had the best day with you today
I'm thirteen now And don't know how My friends could be so mean I come home crying And you hold me tight And grab the keys
And we drive and drive Until we found a town far enough away And we talk and window shop 'Till I forgotten all their names
I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school But I know I'm laughing On the car ride home with you Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay But I know I had the best day with you today
I have an excellent father His strength is making me stronger God smiles on my little brother Inside and out he's better than I am I grew up in a pretty house And I had space to run and I had the best days with you
There is a video I found From back when I was three You set up a paint set in the kitchen And you're talking to me It's the age of princesses and pirate ships And the seven dwarfs And Daddy's smart And you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world
And now I know why the all the trees change in the fall I know you were on my side Even when I was wrong And I love you for giving me your eyes Staying back and watching me shine and
I didn't know if you knew So I'm taking this chance to say That I had the best day with you today.

Tom from Long IslandNot a Swifty (too old) but as soon as I heard this I thought of my wife. I remembered how much she LOVED being a mom. I know she adored me, but her kids? Forget it, hands down she loved being their mom. She passed away recently and I can’t help but cry every time I hear it thinking of her, with my boys and me. How absolutely lucky I was to be married to her and how lucky our boys were to have her for a mom. I so wish she was still here to enjoy getting older together.
Kae from PhilippinesThis song reminds me of my mom and I can't help but break down everytime I listen to it.
Nell from Chatham, Njat first I thought this song was about her whole family
Fabio from New Orleans, LaI love this song so much. The video made me burst into tears. Sometimes, I have to skip it because I still get choked up. She was so bloody adorable.
Marlin from Oak Ridge, TnI'm really confused about how anyone is confused about this song. Obviously some people hear one phrase and act like they never heard the song...so lets clear some stuff up..
Jessica.. you asked.. why does it say "i don't who i'm going to talk to now at school"?
Well the answer should be easy considering right before she said that she says..
I'm thirteen now and don't know how my friends could be so mean I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away And we talk and window shop 'til I've forgotten all their names
Katy.. you said ..I thought she wrote it about her dad bc of the lines "I have an excellent father" and "daddy's smart". It never once mentions her mom....just her little brother and dad.
She references a ( YOU ) through out the whole song So I can see if you were confused till it comes to this stanza ..
There is a video I found from back when I was three You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs And Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world
So are you still confused after seeing she said YOU'RE THE PRETTIEST LADY..? That should have made you say...OHH...its her mom!
Jessica from Westerville, Ohwait, if it's about her mom then why does it say "i don't who i'm going to talk to now at school"?
Katy from Pleasant View, Tnthis song is confusing to me. When I first heard it I thought she wrote it about her dad bc of the lines "I have an excellent father" and "daddy's smart". It never once mentions her mom....just her little brother and dad.
Ashleigh from ?????, MoReally beautiful song.
Hope from Naperville, Ilahh...i made a mistake. thanks
Emily from Around Chicago, IlIn the booklet that comes w/the CD, there are hidden messages in the lyrics. You take all the capital letters and put them in order to spell a phrase. The Best Day's message is: GOD BLESS ANDREA SWIFT. That's some mother's day present if you ask me.
Mary from Richmond, Vahope- the end where she says "I know you were on my side even when I was wrong" is about her mother, just like all the rest of the song.
Hope from Naperville, Ilno comments yet? i love the end where she's talking about how her dad was always on her side even when she was wrong.
Bob Dylan's most popular song is "Like A Rolling Stone," which tells the story of a wealthy woman whose money and friends fall away. Dylan offers these mockingly encouraging words: "When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose."
The Boyz II Men hit "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" is an a capella cover of a song from 1975 by G.C. Cameron that was used in the movie Cooley High to express the feeling of parting ways with high school friends.
