It seems like only yesterday, I can hear my girl say
Daddy, there's a boy outside, his name is Bob
And he wants to play in our backyard
Can he, Daddy? Can he, Daddy? Aww, please, Daddy?

Was it really so long ago that she'd come to me, and want to know
Dad, there's a boy outside, his name is Lee
And he wants to carry my books for me
Can he, Daddy? Is it alright, Dad? He's got freckles, Dad

Then came ponytails and jeans, and my little girl was in her teens
Pop, there's a boy outside, his name is Tom
He wants to take me to the prom, okay, Pop?
He's cute! We'll be home early, Pop

Ah, before I knew it, the time had flown
And my, how my little girl had grown
Now it was: Father, there's a boy outside, his name is Eddie
He wants to know if we can go steady
Can we, Father? Yes, Father? Oh, can we borrow the car, Pop?

Yes, it seems like only yesterday, I heard my lovely daughter say
Dad, there's a boy outside, his name is Jim
He asked me if I'd marry him, and I said yes, Dad
Got something in your eye, Dad? Ah, but I love him, Dad

A child, an adolescent, a young lady, a wife and oh, yes—
There's another man in my little girl's life
Hi, Dad! There's a boy outside, his name is Tim
And I told him his Grandpa is gonna babysit with him
Thanks, Dad, goodnight, Dad
