    Lyrics

    When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new,
    It always winds up feeling more like a job interview.
    My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone
    Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run.

    I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old.
    He took my mom out to the movie, and for once I got to go.
    A few months later, I remember lying there in bed.
    I overheard him pop the question,
    And I prayed that she'd say yes

    And then all of a sudden, oh it seemed so strange to me.
    How we went from somthings missing to a family.
    Looking back all I can say about all the things he did for me,
    Is that I hope I'm at least half the dad he didn't have to be

    I met the girl that's now my wife about three years ago.
    We had the perfect marriage, but we wanted something more.
    Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends,
    Crowded around the nursery window as they bring the baby in.

    And now all of a sudden, oh it seems so strange to me.
    How we'd gone from somthings missing to a family.
    Looking through the glass,
    I think about the man that's standing next to me,
    And I hope I'm at least half the dad that he didn't have to be

    And looking back all I can say about all the things he did for me
    Is I hope I'm at least half the dad he didn't have to be

    Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad he didn't have to be

    Because he didn't have to be

    You know he didn't have to be
