All-American girl...

Since the day they got married
He'd been praying for a little baby boy
Someone he could take fishing
Throw the football, be his pride and joy
He could already see him holding that trophy
Taking his team to state
But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket
All those big dreams changed

And now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All American girl

Sixteen short years later
She was falling for the senior junior football star

Before you knew it he was dropping passes
Skipping practice just to spend more time with her
The coach said, "hey son what's your problem
Tell me have you lost your mind"
Daddy said, "you'll lose your free ride to college
Boy, you better tell her goodbye"

But now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All American girl

And when they got married and decided to have one of their own
She said, "be honest, tell me what you want"
And he said, "honey you outta know..."

"A sweet, little, beautiful one just like you
I want a beautiful, wonderful, perfect All American girl"

Now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect

adorable post! at our first sonogram when the nurse typed GIRL on the screen, my husband said and I quote "are you sure?!" he was in FULL panic mode. I just know he'll be an amazing father and that our daughter will be the biggest daddy's girl EVER. I feel slightly bad for her though..she's going to be one over protected little girl!
