One Knee Proposal

lyrics

there it is, the one knee proposal
I saw it coming months ago
isn’t love great, isn’t love grand
find a date that fits in your calendar
life’s so busy, plan for the new year
go in hand in hand
find the dress you’ve always dreamed of
as a little girl, quiet and love struck
look at you now, bride to be
gather the groomsmen, gather the maids
floral arrangements and dinner plates
isn’t love grand, isn’t love great

these are the moments where history lives
what an adventure this life gives
cut the cake and eat it too
celebrate the story that’s being written by you

there will be joy, there will be tears
and folks you’ve not seen in years
friends from high school
send the invitations, plan the honeymoon
you gotta do what you gotta do
and you do it all for you
as daddy walks you, mama’s gonna cry
I’ll be there right by her side
she’ll ask, ‘where’d the time go?’
and with the exchange of vows I’ll take her hand
together we’ll watch as you commit to your man
and let love guide you home

these are the moments where history lives
what an adventure this life gives
cut the cake and eat it too
celebrate the story that’s being written by you
