Darling girl, you're getting older.

You're more like your mama every day.

Darling girl, you're leaving me,

You're going your own way.

Your mama shed a few tears

And I just held her hand

As I watched my darling girl

Marry her young man.

How I miss the darling girl

Who'd climb into my lap,

And if she was tired,

She'd stay to take a nap.

Now she has kids of her own

Who come to see me.

Man, it's hard to think my darling girl

Has her own baby!

No one could ever take such a special place.

She'll always be my little Darling girl,

For all the rest of my days.
