    Fiddler On The Roof — Sunrise, Sunset lyrics
    Send "Sunrise, Sunset" Ringtone to Cell Phone
    (tevye)
    Is this the little girl I carried,
    Is this the little boy at play?

    (golde)
    I don't remember growing older,
    When did they?

    (tevye)
    When did she get to be a beauty,
    When did he grow to be so tall?

    (golde)
    Wasn't it yesterday when they were small?

    (men)
    Sunrise, sunset (x2),
    Swiftly flow the days.

    (women)
    Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
    Blossoming even as we gaze.

    (everyone)
    Sunrise, sunset (x2),
    Swiftly fly the years,
    One season following another,
    Laiden with happiness and tears.

    (tevye)
    What words of wisdom can I give them,
    How can I help to ease their way?

    (golde)
    Now they must learn from one another,
    Day by day.

    (perchik)
    They look so natural together.

    (hodel)
    Just like two newlyweds should be.

    (perchik and hodel)
    Is there a canopy in store for me?

    (everyone)
    Sunrise, sunset (x2),
    Swiftly fly the years,
    One season following another,
    Laiden with happiness,
    And tears

    If it is a religious wedding, there is a wonderful song the Father could sing. Parent's Prayer (let Go of Two) written by Greg Davis.

    How about "another one bites the dust"? just kidding. I love the Butterfly kisses suggestion.

    That one seems more for just the bride to dance with her father. I’m looking for some music to sing more appropriate for the couple to dance too but also that does not have too much of a “one to one” overtone, especially when performed by the Father of the Groom.
