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?"
[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 wanna 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 her dress She says, "Dad, the prom is just one week away And I need to practice my dancing Oh, please, Daddy, please?"
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?"
