She spins and she sways
To whatever song plays,
Without a care in the world.
And I'm sitting here wearing
The weight of the world on my shoulders.

It's been a long day, and there's still work to do.
She pulling at me saying, "Dad, I need you.
There's a ball at the castle, and I've been invited.
And I need to practice my dancing.
Oh, please. Daddy, please."

So I will dance with Cinderella,
While she is here in my arms.
'Cuz I know something the prince never knew.
Oh I will dance with Cinderella.
I don't want to miss even one song.
'Cuz all too soon, the clock will strike midnight...
And she'll be gone.

She says he's a nice guy, and I'd be impressed.
She wants to know if I approve of the dress.
She says, "Dad, the prom is just one week away.
And I need to practice my dancing.
Oh, please. Daddy, please."

So I will dance with Cinderella,
While she is here in my arms.
'Cuz I know something the prince never knew.
Oh, oh, oh I will dance with Cinderella.
I don't want to miss even one song.
'Cuz all too soon, the clock will strike midnight...
And she'll be gone
She will be gone.

She came home today, with the ring on her hand,
Just glowing and telling us all they had planned.
She says, "Dad, the wedding's still six months away.
But I need to practice my dancing.
Oh, please. Daddy, please."

So I will dance with Cinderella,
While she is here in my arms.
'Cuz I know something the prince never knew.
Oh, oh,oh I will dance with Cinderella.
I don't want to miss even one song.
'Cuz all too soon, the clock will strike midnight...
And she'll be gone.
