lyrics

So excited, you can't wait,
As the car pulls into your new College gate
You in the back, all chatter and smiles
But your Momma's said nothing for the last twenty miles
I guess she feels the way that I do, we've not looked forward to this day
Now it's time to let you go listen up - I got something to say.

Remember what I told you, call your Momma once in a while
Now I want to hold you but i know it's time to let you fly
As I turn to walk away I've got something in my eye
I'm so proud to be your Daddy; and Daddy don't cry

Teenage years passing by in a haze
Can't help thing back to my own College days
Parties all night, the girls who lived opposite
Pizza and beer and a keg in the closet
I guess I feel the way that she does it ain't easy to let go
Now it's time to say goodbye listen up - there's one thing you should know

Remember what I told you, give your faith another try
Now I want to hold you but i know it's time to let you fly
As I turn to walk away I've got something in my eye
I'm so proud to be your Daddy; and Daddy don't cry

Don't wanna make a big scene so we'll drop you off right here
Unload the car and drive away to hide behind your Momma's tears

Remember what I told you, call your Momma once in a while
Now I want to hold you but i know it's time to let you fly
As I turn to walk away I've got something in my eye
I'm so proud to be your Daddy; and Daddy don't cry
