Lyrics
Pigtails high chasing butterflys
long long time ago.

First day of school just look at you,
can't wait to go.

Roller skates gonna stay up late,
gonna watch that scary show.

Make-up now clothes in style
got a boyfriend don't you know.

Chorus

Baby steps and lessons learned
for both of us you and me.
And I think you learned your lessons well
just look in the mirror and you will see.

Life ahead with many paths
find your way and be free.

And never loose that smile you wear
cause your sharing it with me.

Before I go just want to say
one more silly thing.

I love you more every day
Happy birthday sweet sixteen.

Repeat chorus

Mr Feter
Reflections. The best way to sum it up. I wrote the words and had a time putting music to them, so I just kept it simple. Just started playing, turned on the mike and this is what it is. Thanks for stopping by and for the listen.

You are not old...

She's getting older...

And so are we all...

But I know how you feel...and I so miss carrying my little one around the house...so much...

But we're still here...and this is a fine, fine tune, man. Kudos...

Great sentiment for your daughter. She should love it.

Thanks for going back in time a little
I have played in cover bands forever not a problem. I have also written lyrics for my own pleasure forever not a problem. Till about a year ago I had never sang a note no problem. Then one day I said what the hell and started recording and singing my own music. I still have a hard time listening to myself. Thanks for the vote of confidince it helps. And thanks for the kind words.
