I want to use the song My Boy/Girl by Elvie Shane during our blended family unity ceremony. My FH plays it for my kids all the time. The problem is it’s 2 different song one with boy and one changed to girl. Anyone have any ideas how I can change the lyrics to make it work for boy and girl so we can use it for our ceremony. Here are both sets of lyrics:


My Boy


He ain't got my smile, that don't bother me a bit

He's got somebody else's eyes I'm seein' myself in

I'm holdin' onto every moment, God knows I've missed a few

The day we met, I knew I had some catchin' up to do

He ain't my blood, ain't got my name

But if he did, I'd feel the same

I wasn't there for his first steps

But I ain't missed a ball game yet

And that ain't ever gonna change

I could never walk away

Yeah, he's my son and that's my choice

He ain't my blood, but he's my, he's my boy

It hit me like a train, the first time he called me dad

In a three stick figure crayon picture with all of us holdin' hands

His mama said, "I understand if it's too soon for this"

I didn't let her finish, I took it to the kitchen and I stuck it on the fridge, yeah

He ain't my blood, ain't got my name

But if he did, I'd feel the same

I wasn't there for his first steps

But I ain't missed a ball game yet

And that ain't ever gonna change

I could never walk away

Yeah, he's my son and that's my choice

He ain't my blood, but he's my, he's my boy

He's Saturday morning cartoons

He's, "Hey, can I sleep in your room?"

He's bigger than the plans I had

He's makin' me a better man

He ain't my blood, ain't got my name

But if he did, I'd feel the same

I wasn't there for his first steps

But I ain't missed a ball game yet

And that ain't ever gonna change

I could never walk away

Yeah, he's my son and that's my choice

He ain't my blood, but he's my, he's my boy

Yeah, he's my, he's my boy


My Girl

She ain't got my smile, that don't bother me a bit

She's got somebody else's eyes I'm seeing myself in

I'm holding on to every moment, God knows I've missed a few

The day we met I knew I had some catching up to do


She ain't my blood, ain't got my name

But if she did, I'd feel the same

I wasn't there for her first steps

But I ain't missed the ball game yet

And that ain't ever gonna change

I could never walk away

Yeah, she's my baby my whole world

She ain't my blood but she's my, she's my girl


It hit me like a train, the first time she called me dad

In a three stick figure crayon picture with all of us holding hands

Her mama said, "I understand if it's too soon for this"

I didn't let her finish, I took it to the kitchen and I stuck it on the fridge, yeah


She ain't my blood, ain't got my name

But if she did, I'd feel the same

I wasn't there for her first steps

But I ain't missed the ball game yet

And that ain't ever gonna change

I could never walk away

Yeah, she's my baby and my whole world

She ain't my blood but she's my, she's my girl


She's Saturday morning cartoons

She's "Hey, can I sleep in your room?"

She's bigger than the plans I had

She's making me a better man


She ain't my blood, ain't got my name

But if she did, I'd feel the same

I wasn't there for her first steps

But I ain't missed the ball game yet

And that ain't ever gonna change

I could never walk away

Yeah, she's my baby and my whole world

She ain't my blood but she's my, she's my girl

Yeah, she's my, she's my girl

    If you are having a DJ you could ask them to blend the 2 songs together. Have the first part play a shortened verse of the "boy" version and the second part play a shortened verse of the "girl" version

    Agree with PP, have a dj blend them together, the first half being the first half of the boy version and second half of the girl version
