A song that will resonate with any mother, daughter, or father. The progress of a daughter from her first day of kindergarten to her walk down the aisle. Eleven year old Clara joins her mother and father, Meghan and Peter, on the last chorus.

Lyrics

The bus pulled up on Tuesday
The Autumn air had just begun to cool
You stood silently waiting
To climb those steps to your first day of school

And as I watched you walk away
I thought I knew exactly what I’d say
But then you stopped and turned around
My thoughts were lost my words they did confound
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia for little girls
With their dresses and their messes
With their dances and their prances and their twirls

The gym filled up on Friday
Scuffing soles and laughter filled the air
You walked off with a throng of the wrong crowd
With a look that said “Yeah, stop me if you dare”

And as I watched you walk away
I thought I knew exactly what I’d say
But then you stopped and turned around
My thoughts were lost my words they did confound
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia for little girls
With their dresses and their messes
With their dances and their prances and their twirls

The church, it was full on Sunday
Quiet music swelled to fill the room
Once again I watched you walk away
A bride now walking to her groom

I’ve watched you walk what seems like miles
Across gym floors and down church aisles
And now you have a family of your own
I hope that you will know what I have known
And sing…
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia for little girls
With their dresses and their messes
With their dances and their prances and their twirls

With their dresses and their messes
With their dances and their prances and their twirls
