But hopefully, she grows to have her mom’s beautiful look
Is she so precious because she’s so fragile?
Is she adorable because she’s so tiny?
No, she’s precious because she’s mine.
For the next several years, she’s going to be a pain.
But this special relationship was foreordained.
Say goodbye to sleeping and long restful nights
Say hello to barfing and random food fights
It’s a misconception that her poos are all cute
Throw them out immediately before they pollute
And every rash and sneezing will cause me to worry
Is 100 degrees a fever? Call the doc and hurry!
Then why do I look forward to taking care of this baby?
Don’t I have enough problems to take care of lately?
To love her before I know her is part of God’s design,
But I actually really love her
because she’s mine.
She’ll do nothing to improve my life, what really can she offer?
Pay for my retirement when she becomes a famous golfer?
But even then will it balance out the financial bottom line?
No I’ll give up everything for her
cuz she’s mine
I realize when God looks at me, it’s really the same way
I’m not a random servant, a subject, fashioned piece of clay
God loves me not because one day there’s something I could give
He loved me with nothing to gain, he died so I could live
To be a dad, I think I get a glimpse into the divine
cuz the moment the Father saw me he said
“I love you because you’re mine”
