Every time my baby and I have a quarrel
I swear I won't give in
Then my baby starts to smile at me
And I know, I know I just can't win

When my little girl is smiling
There's nothing more I can say, whoa
I see those big bright eyes and then I realize
That girl is gonna get her way

Oh, let me tell you now, when my little girl is smiling (when my little girl is smiling)
I can't stay mad at her for long (when my little girl is smiling)
Why should I want to fight when I can hold her tight?
I just don't care who's right or wrong (when my little girl is smiling)
