Though my head’s been known to give me hell

Yeah, the best part of me, part of me is you
Is you”

Cause the best parts of me were given to you
And I hope that all of your dreams come true
And as time goes by, I want you to know
That I’ll be with you wherever you go
You’ll always be my baby girl”

Giving all her love to her was her life’s ambition
But now her baby’s movin’ on and she’ll soon be missing’ her
But not today
Those are tears of joy running’ down her face
She’s somebody’s hero
A hero to her daughter in her wedding dress

Looks back into her mother’s eyes
And that smile lets her know
