Lyrics

There She Goes

(She said)
You can let go look at me Daddy
See I'm doing fine
His little girl found her balance
On a brand new shiny bike

She just giggled and kept on peddlin'
A memory that would never fade
He tried to catch his breath
As he watched her ride away

There she goes
Stretching her wings to fly
There she goes
She's not afraid to try
Where'd the time go
When she was just a baby
Ain't nobody knows, but
There she goes
There she goes

Before he knew it, she got a job
And learned to drive a car
He could tell that she was kinda nervous
As she backed out of the yard

She pulled away and turned at the corner
He just stood and waved
He blinked back a tear
As he watched her drive away

And there she goes
Stretching her wings to fly
There she goes
She's not afraid to try
Where'd the time go
When she was just a baby
Ain't nobody knows, but
There she goes

Dressed in white, she said I do
Her married life begins
Then that little girl
Drove away again

There she goes
Stretching her wings to fly
There she goes
She's not afraid to try
Where'd the time go
When she was just a baby
Ain't nobody knows,
but...
There she goes
There she goes
