Lyrics

She spins and she sways to whatever song plays,
Without a care in the world.
And I'm sitting here 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

My beautiful niece, Danielle, was going to be the flower girl at my wedding. She was so excited, but she passed away a few months before it from brain cancer. I love her and I miss her and every time that I hear this song, I remember all of the wonderful times that I had dancing with my little Cinderella. She was only 3, but she could really dance.

My friend had this song played as her father and daughter dance and it was sooo sweet. Its a great song and I wish I found this song before her so I could use it for my wedding.

an amazing song with such a tragic tale behind it... don't take you time with anyone for granted... it could all change in a flash... dance every chance you get!

I've decided to pick the song for the father and daughter dance. I played it and pictured myself dancing with my father and teared up.

From The Picture's Perspective says...
The first time I heard this song was a father-daughter dance at a wedding we photographed. After the dance, my husband (and second shooter) came over to me and said "we have to have a baby girl now"! It was so sweet - I had to quickly get out of "mommy" mode and back to photographer mode. Now, a few years later, we are the parents of a beautiful baby girl and sing this song to her all the time. Love it!

Sabine says...
I think this is a great song for daddies and daughters all over the world to dance to!

HooahMillerToBe says...
I cried when I heard this song, and under the guise of helping me pick the father daughter dance for the wedding, hand my mom listen to several around my dad. She sent me an email saying she liked butterfly kisses the best, but dad got emotional around Cinderella. So yep, this is the song we're going to use.

Angela says...
I am sitting here crying to pick a song for me and my dad to dance to at my wedding. I grew up in a single parent home with my mom, and som many of these songs talk about dad's and night time prayers... but dancing is one thing my dad and i did do a lot of together. One of my biggest memories is going to dances every valentines day with him. This just may be our dance...

Alyssa says...
I heard this song when it first came out... I was 18 and I knew that this was going to be my dad's and mine first dance and he won't know the song until we start dancing...

Danielle says...
This song mad me cry, I believe I found my song!
