Plenty of time to turn out the light,
I want to keep this feeling inside, for a little more,
It must be a Daddy's pride and joy, a little baby boy,
Is lying in my arms here tonight;

Tears in my eyes when I saw you being born,
So much emotion, words cannot form, so I'll let it be,
Only to say it's you and me, for eternity,
I wish you a wonderful life,

And I'm only, I'm only, I'm only,
Just a word away;

I will be near whenever you call,
Pick you up whenever you fall,
