  • The smell of Old Spice
    A flat cap on the dash
    Windows rolled down in the wind
    While birds fly past
    Singing along with the radio
    A little latitude
    Hanging onto that steering wheel
    Was the man who hung the moon

    Used to wrap my hands around his little finger
    Turns out he was wrapped around mine
    He said "you can be anything you want to in this great big world"
    But I'm always gonna be daddy's little girl

    He always used to tell me "don't grow up too fast
    Love will come, love will go, your first won't be your last"
    I didn't always listen when he gave me advice
    Though I hate to admit it, but that man was always right

    Used to wrap my hands around his little finger
    Turns out he was wrapped around mine
    He said "you can be anything you want to in this great big world"
    But I'm always gonna be daddy's little girl, daddy's little girl

    When I count my blessings, I know where to start
    He might not hold my hand no more
    But he'll always, always hold my heart

    Used to wrap my hands around his little finger
    Turns out he was wrapped around mine
    He said "you can be anything you want to in this great big world"
    But I'm always gonna be
    Yes I'm always gonna be daddy's little girl, daddy's little girl Writer/s: Crissie Rhodes, Jeffrey H Cohen, Livy Jeanne, Victoria Banks

  • Elizabeth K from South DakotaI read the lyrics to your song 'Daddy's Little Girl' and was very impressed by them. My daughter and two granddaughters would like to sing to their fathers in church on Fathers Day and I think this song would be perfect. Is there some way we can get your permission to sing this one time. I understand about copyrights and royalties and wonder if you would give them permission and what would it cost. Thank you.
  • Vinny Ball from SouthportWonderful, thoughtful song about the father she so dearly misses . People should appreciate their parents as they wont be here forever !! Looking forward to seeing the Shires in Liverpool in May. Seen them with Carrie Underwood last year and they are brilliant.
