Baby baby girl with excited pink frosted cheeks
Today is your day, today is your day.
Look at the trees, fresh and smiling green for you.
Look at the white church waiting for you.
Be happy baby girl Be happy
There are no blackbirds waiting on dead brown branches to ruin your day
Baby baby girl with your clean white dress
With your fair white teeth, smile baby smile,
So that the gray skies will mimic you
And adjust to purple blushes
Baby baby girl we've decorated the aisle for you
With panicked red roses lining every pew
And look outside baby girl at the white peach and yellow houses watching over you
Baby baby girl, today is your day to shine...
Shine baby girl, Shine.
