To My First Prince

Dancing with my dad at my prom.

Four years old, in a new white dress
I was twirling 'round, hoping you'd notice
You grabbed my hand and you gave me a whirl,
Dipped me low and said, "That's my girl."

Seventeen in my new prom dress
That's the night I got my first kiss
Asked you why it wasn't what I thought it'd be
Because I knew that you'd be straight with me

And that night as you led me out onto the floor
I was your daughter, but not your little girl anymore

And I didn't always follow all the steps
And I didn't always want to let you lead
But I knew you'd always love me, you were my first prince
I was a princess Dancing With Daddy.

Twenty three in a new white dress
Looking forward to my "happy-ever-afterness."
You walked me down the aisle, and you gave me away
You brought me this far, you loved me all the way

And that night as you led me out onto the floor
I was your daughter, but not your little girl anymore

And I didn't always follow all the steps
And I didn't always want to let you lead
But I knew you'd always love me, you were my first prince
I was a princess Dancing With Daddy.

No matter where I go in this world
I will always be your girl.

And I didn't always follow all the steps
And I didn't always want to let you lead
But I knew you'd always love me, you were my first prince
I was a princess, oh__

And I didn't always follow all the steps
And I didn't always want to let you lead
But I knew you'd always love me, you were my first prince
I was a princess, oh_
I'm a princess Dancing With Daddy.

Four years old, in a new white dress
I was twirling 'round, hoping you'd notice.
