Dads. Daughters. Dance.

29 01 2008

hannah.jpgSometimes there are moments in your life that are pure joy. Last Friday was one of those nights…the Girl Scout Daddy Daughter Dance. My youngest daughter, Hannah and I had a blast. She had so much energy, I was worn out by the end. Chicken Dance. Thriller. Butterfly Kisses. If there was a prize for the least dressed up couple at the dance, we would have won it, but it didn’t matter…we had each other.

The night reminded me of a song that heard a few months back called Cinderella at the Steven Curtis Chapman concert. These moments go by quickly…savor and enjoy them. If you’re a dad with a daughter, enjoy the song…


Lyrics – Cinderella, Steven Curtis Chapman

She spins and she sways to whatever song plays
Without a care in the world
And I’m sitting wearing the weight of the world on my shoulders
It’s been a long day and there’s still work to do
She’s pulling at me saying “Dad I need you!
There’s a ball at the castle and I’ve been invited and I need to practice my dancin’
Oh please, Daddy, please!”

Chorus:
So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone

Verse 2:
She says he’s a nice guy and I’d be impressed
She wants to know if I approve of the dress
She says, “Dad the prom is just one week away
And I need to practice my dancin’
Oh please, Daddy, please!”

Chorus:
So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone

Verse 3:
But she came home today with a ring on her hand
Just glowin’ and tellin’ us all they had planned
She says, “Dad the wedding’s still six months away but I need to practice my dancin’
Oh please, Daddy, please!”

Chorus:
So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone

She’ll be gone.
