A Song For Daddy

Updated on March 19, 2015

From One Bride to her Father

On Saturday, May 29, 2010, our middle daughter married her best friend. After six years of dating and a friendship that had spanned more than a decade, they finally took the big step. This daughter had a lot of unique ideas that made this day quite special. One of the most special memories she created was a song she wrote for her Daddy. She recorded it and had the DJ play it for the Father/Daughter dance. There were many friends and family who left the reception hoping they could hear it again and see the very unusual and descriptive lyrics. So, this page is especially dedicated to my husband and second daughter. I hope you enjoy what you'll find here!

Daddy's Little Girl

(C) 2010 Sylvia Modranski

Cabbage patch kids
and Barbie Dolls,
I loved to play with
when I was small
Tonka dump trucks
and race car tracks
Among the other things
you made sure I had
As I Dance in your
arms right here
I think of how they held me
through my tears
And now our last names
are not the same
But I know some things
that will never ever change


'Cause I will always remember:
To use Elbow grease when I'm cleaning chrome
Make sure it's not too late when I get home
Take a few steps then kick the ball
"Daddy's here to catch you should you start to fall"
Now I go to find my place in this world
I'll remember to be Daddy's Little Girl

We worked together on that bike
You promised I could have the very first ride
Though I never did cut the grass,
I can bring you almost any tool you ask
Kicking footballs out in yard
You taught me how and you know I tried hard
"Best Friends Forever" is what it said.
I was always better with a needle and thread



I'll check the oil before I drive
I'll stand by him and be a good wife
I will remember the lessons you taught
I know you love me no matter what


And I will always remember
When you eat spaghetti you drink chocolate milk
If I get stuck don't be afraid to ask for help
Faith and prayer will always see you through
Don't give up on God, He won't give up on you
You gave me away to find my place in this world
But I'll always be Daddy's little girl
Yes I'll always be Daddy's little girl
Remember, Daddy, I'm your little girl

The Song for Sylvia

I've written songs for each of our three daughters on their wedding day. The first, for our oldest daughter, I recorded in 2000. It's around here someplace, but that was a few years ago, so I have to find it. The second, for our youngest daughter, I haven't found time to create an MP3 of yet, but this last one, I have finally loaded to the internet! Hope to get the other two up sometime soon.

If you'd like to hear the one I wrote for our second daughter, you'll find a link to it here

I love to hear from you!

      So happy to hear of the wonderful success of your beautiful and talented daughters. We often wonder about them and how they are doing. We watched then grow for a short time when Steve was Pastor at Clarksburg United Methodist Church. We were always impressed by their poise, grace and faith. Thanks for keeping us informed.
