Written for my baby daughter

I had a dream of a brown-eyed little girl
She was a joy within this troubled world
Always was she happy always was she gay
And Lord I thank you for her, each and every day
Take her in you hands, my Erica Suzanne
Protect her from this world, for she’s my little girl!

I had a dream of a fair-faced little girl
She was a joy within this troubled world
Always was she happy always was she gay
And Lord I thank you for her, each and every day
Take her in your hands, my Erica Suzanne
Protect her from this world, for she’s my little girl!

I had a dream of a girl with style and grace
I had a dream of a girl in pink and lace
I had a dream of a precious little girl
She was a joy within this troubled world
Always was she happy always was she gay
And Lord I think you for her, each and every way
Take her in your hands, my Erica Suzanne
Protect her from this world for; she’s my little girl!
