Lyrics

I stood out on the corner and watched the sun goin' down
Holding someone warm and gentle close to me
Was an infant daughter fair,
With deep brown eyes and tawny hair
Sweetest joy this man's soul will ever see
Sweetest joy this man's soul will ever see.

It's hard to understand how the years roll on by
Infants come and grow and soon they're five or six feet high
So love 'em while they're little ones
When they still coo and cry
The time will come when they'll be gone
And parents wave good-bye

We sat out on the corner and watched the rain pouring down
An umbrella built for two kept us dry
We laughed and sang a song
We didn't care who came along
We just had fun and another day went by
We just had fun
But another day went by

The laughter from a little girl can cause the sun to rise
For few can stay in misery beholding sparkling eyes
Those little girls will never know the healing that they bring
The happy smiles and tender sighs
Can cause the heart to sing

Some day I'll walk a church aisle and give my girls away
But I'll always keep their memories close to me
And remember all those days
All those wondrous magic ways
For their lives brought a special harmony to me
Yes their lives brought a special harmony

It's hard to understand how the years roll on by
Infants come and grow and soon they're five or six feet high
So love 'em while they're little ones
When they still coo and cry
The time will come when they'll be gone
And parents wave good-bye
