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 dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

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 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 dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

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 will be gone

Well, she came home today with a ring on her hand
Just glowing and telling us all they had planned
She says, "Dad, the wedding's still six months away
But I need to practice my dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

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

This is the song I am going to dance with my father at my wedding!! I have always been his little princess and cinderella was my favorite one!!

Betsy  says...
I heard this song after I bought the CD and I'm obsessed with it. Now if I could only figure out the first dance song!

beasley/lewis says...
this is a beautiful song! Not sure if it will be my father/daughter song though.

Kristin says...
This song makes me cry!!! I'm definitely keeping it in mind.

elizabethjo says...
When i heard this song it was perfect. we are def using this!

SaraAnn says...
Of all the songs I've listened to so far, this is the only one that has made me cry! So far, this is definitely the one I can see myself dancing to with my dad.

Jordan says...
I knew from the very beginning this was going to be my father/daughter song. My best friend and I sang it for our dad's on father's day right after it came out. And it is the only song I'd ever think about dancing with my father to.

Kristen says...
so sweet!

Lora  says...
it was our father -daughter song.Dad and I ended up singing it to each other while dancing

kylene says...
this is my father daughter song. i was going to use i loved her first then i heard this song. i own a dance studio and i had 3girls ( one was 5 yrs old, another was 13 and the oldest 22-they each danced the corresponding verse) dance to this in this past recital, every dad needed a tissue lol. but its so appropriate considering ive been dancing my entire life

CJ & TC says...
I am not one to cry over songs but this one made me cry the whole way through!

Jodi says...
This is perfect for my father/daughter song since I was a dancer throughout all my growing up. He came to see me in many recitals and ballet productions...perfect.

Caren says...
Years ago my Daddy pointed out how much he liked this song, something he has NEVER done. So years ago I decided it would be our Daddy/Daughter dance song. I've been dancing 24 years now {wow that makes me feel old!} and he was at every competition for 12 years growing up -- that makes this song especially meaningful :)

Jasmine says...
this will be my daddy daughter dance yay! i love the video the shadows in the background make me think about my childhood.

Rachel says...
Now that my boyfriend and I are talking about getting married, when I hear this song, I see my daddy and I dancing to this song on my wedding day. We haven't picked out the big day yet but when that day comes, this song will be playing and my dad and I will be dancing to "Cinderella".

Kristen says...
This is a great song! Im stuck between this song and I Loved Her First for my Father/Daughter dance.

Semone says...
I love, love, love this song. I say I don't want to cry, but this might do it. My dad is going to have to hold me up. :-) I think my eyes are getting watery now. Gotta go. LOL

Raven says...
My Dad actually picked the song, I cried the first time I heard it and still get the same emotion as the first time I heard it. Hopefully I can make it through without messing up my make-up.

Gabrielle says...
love love love this song the first time i heard it was on a christian cd my Mother purchased and i fell in love with it. This is the song that my Dad and i have chose to have our Father and daughter dance.

Jessica says...
This is definitely my daddy daughter song! I still cry everytime I hear it.

Ashlyn says...
Its a sad song because he wrote it for his little girl that died in an accident.

Rebecca says...
My Father-daughter song for sure!

Kelly says...
Definately just cried.

Caroline says...
Although I can't listen to this one without crying, I'm set on it for my father-daughter dance!

Michelle says...
My dad died when I was 9 and its songs like this definitely make me feel alone

Mrs. DooPwee says...
Just cried. I think I found my father daugther song :) Better because it's a Christian artist.

Kristin says...
I've known this was the perfect song ever since I first heard it four years ago... It's perfect because I used to dance and sing around the house all the time when I was little.

Private User says...
I think this song is perfect but it would definitely make me cry!!

Leanne says...
I just started crying after the first verse. We are having a Disney themed wedding, and I think this song will go perfectly with it.

charline says...
this song is for my other daughter who is 6 and my fiance

Private User says...
This is the most perfect song I have heard. The only one to make me cry. My dad and I have been apart for so long, but we used to be so close and with my love of Disney it just makes sense.

Brenda says...
If you like this song you should check out "Stealing Cinderella" by Chuck Wicks it is AMAZING!! It is a country song but a great one! Could be used for father daughter or first dance for the bride and groom! Its such a beautiful song.

Teri says...
i lost my father 7 yrs ago, my 6 yr old son ( named after him) will be walking me down the isle. I was wondering what would be a good song to dance with him ( as father daughter dance)? or you could say mother son dance.
