BABY YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
AND I'M SO GLAD I FOUND YOU
CAUSE YOU MAKE ME FEEL WONDERFUL
EVERY TIME I'M AROUND YOU
ESPECIALYY WHEN YOU HOLD MY HAND
I FEEL THAT CERTAIN SOMETHING
AND I JUST WANT TO SAY I LOVE YOU
AND I WOULD NOT DO ONE THING...(TO)

CHORUS:
LET YOU GO, EVER HURT YOU
DO ANYTHING YOU WOULDN'T WANT ME TO
BECAUSE TOMORROW NIGHT, YOU'LL BE MY WIFE
AND I'M GONNA LOVE YOU THE REST OF MY LIFE.

I WATCH YOU PLANTIN' FLOWERS ALL DAY
JUST DIGGING YOUR HANDS IN THE DIRT
THEN YOU USE THOSE SAME TIRED HANDS
TO RUB MY BACK WHEN IT HURTS
AND WHEN YOU HOLD ME TIGHT AT NIGHT
AND I'M WRAPPED IN YOUR LOVIN' ARMS
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I PRAY TO GOD
TO KEEP YOU SAFE FROM HARM...(AND THAT I DON'T EVER)

CHORUS:
LET YOU GO, EVER HURT YOU
DO ANYTHING YOU WOULDN'T WANT ME TO
BECAUSE TOMORROW NIGHT, YOU'LL BE MY WIFE
AND I'M GONNA LOVE YOU THE REST OF MY LIFE.

WELL I WROTE THIS SONG JUST TO TRY TO THANK YOU
FOR ALL YOU'VE GIVEN ME
CAUSE YOU HAVE FILLED MY LIFE WITH LOVE
AND SET MY HEARTACHES FREE
NOW I GOT DOWN ON ONE KNEE
AND PUT A DIAMOND ON YOUR LEFT HAND
AND COME TOMORROW NIGHT I'M GONNA FOLLLOW IT UP
WITH A GOLDEN WEDDING BAND...(AND THEN I WON'T EVER)

CHORUS:
LET YOU GO, EVER HURT YOU
DO ANYTHING YOU WOULDN'T WANT ME TO
BECAUSE TOMORROW NIGHT, YOU'LL BE MY WIFE
AND I'M GONNA LOVE YOU THE REST OF MY LIFE.

BABY YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL (TOMORROW NIGHT YOU'LL BE MY WIFE)

BABY I HAVE WAITED
FOR YOU, ALL MY LIFE
AND NOW THAT I HAVE FOUND YOU GIRL
I WANT YOU TO BE MY WIFE.
AND YOU NEED ONLY HALF THE LOVE
FOR ME THAT I HAVE FOR YOU
AND WE COULD LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER
AFTER WE SAY I DO.
SO, BABY WILL… WILL YOU MARRY ME?
BABY WILL YOU MARRY, ME?
I KNOW YOU HAVE LOVED IN THE PAST
AND BABY SO HAVE I
BUT I WANT TO SAY RIGHT HERE AND NOW
I’M GOING TO LOVE YOU UNTIL I DIE.
CAUSE YOU ARE MY SHINING STAR
AND I’M YOUR BIGGEST FAN
AND IF YOU WOULD ONLY ANSWER YES
TONIGHT, I’D BE A HAPPY MAN.
SO, BABY WILL… WILL YOU MARRY ME?
BABY WILL YOU MARRY, ME?
YOU KNOW I THOUGHT I’D NEVER
EVER FIND TRUE LOVE
THEN JUST LIKE A GIFT FROM GOD
I FOUND THE ONE I’D BEEN DREAMING OF
AND I HAVE ALWAYS LIVED MY LIFE
IN A WAY THAT TREATED PEOPLE RIGHT
AND I THINK GOD GAVE ME MY REWARD
WITH THIS OPPORTUNITY TONIGHT.
TO ASK YOU
WILL… WILL YOU MARRY ME?
BABY WILL YOU MARRY, ME?

Baby will you marry me?

WE KNOW THAT SOME PEOPLE
THEY MAY THINK ADOPTION’S ODD
BUT NICHOLAS, YOU CAME TO US
BY THE GRACE OF GOD

AND WE……………., WE LOVE YOU

AS WE LOOK UPON YOU NOW
WE SEE ALL YOUR BEAUTY THERE
YOUR FINGERS, TOES, YOUR EYES, YOUR NOSE
YOUR LIPS, YOUR SKIN, YOUR HAIR

A PERFECT LITTLE BABY BOY
TO LOVE AND TO HOLD
YOU ALREADY MEAN MORE TO US
THAN ALL THE SILVER AND GOLD

AND WE……………, WE LOVE YOU

SO TO YOU WE MAKE THIS PROMISE
A “CONTRACT” IF YOU WILL
TO SET EXAMPLES WITH OUR LOVE
TO PROVE TO YOU IT’S REAL

FOR YOU DID NOT ASK TO BE BORN
NOR DEMAND WITH WHOM YOU’D LIVE
SO WE PRAY THAT FROM THIS DAY
YOU’LL ACCEPT THE LOVE WE GIVE

AND WE……………, WE LOVE YOU

AND SON AS YOU GROW OLDER
PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP ON US
‘CAUSE EVEN WITH ALL THE LOVE ON EARTH
SOMETIMES SOME PEOPLE FUSS

AND WE HOPE THAT YOU’LL REMEMBER
THOUGH SOMETIMES YOU MAY THINK “WE’RE ODD”
WE CAN GET THROUGH ANYTHING
WITH THE GRACE OF GOD

AND WE…………….., WE LOVE YOU

THE ADOPTION OF NICHOLAS

YOU SAY SOME THINK ADOPTIONS ODD
BUT IT DON'T SEEM THAT WAY TO ME
CAUSE I JUST HAD A TALK WITH GOD
BEFORE HE MADE YOU TWO, US THREE

AND I... I LOVE YOU TOO

I KNOW YOU THINK I'M PERFECT NOW
BUT THERE WAS ONLY ONE LIKE THAT DOWN HERE
AND AS I LEFT HIS SIDE HE SAID
"THROUGH ME YOU SHALL HAVE NO FEAR"
HE SAID YOU TWO WOULD LOVE ME
AND THAT YOUR LOVE WOULD NEVER GROW COLD
AND HE SAID I AM TO TAKE CARE OF YOU
ESPECIALLY AS YOU GROW OLD

AND I... I LOVE YOU TOO

SO TO YOU I MAKE THIS PROMISE
TO DO EVERYTHING THAT I CAN
AS I GROW, TO MAKE YOU PROUD
PROUD THAT I'M YOUR LITTLE MAN
FOR YOU PICKED ME BEFORE I WAS BORN
TO COME WITH YOU TO LIVE
AND YES YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED
WHEN I RETURN THE LOVE YOU GIVE

AND I... I LOVE YOU TOO

AND KNOW AS I GROW OLDER
I WON'T GIVE UP ON US
I ONLY ASK YO TO DO THE SAME
THOSE TIMES THAT WE MUST FUSS
AND YES THERE WILL BE TIMES I'M SURE
THAT I WILL THINK THAT YOU'RE ODD
BUT REST ASSURED IT WILL ALL WORK OUT
BECAUSE I JUST CAME FROM GOD

AND HE.. HE LOVES US ALL

DEAR MOM AND DAD, NICHOLAS' REPLY

I WAS SITTIN' UP LATE CAUSE I COULDN'T SLEEP
STARING OUT THE WINDOW AT THE EMPTY STREET
WONDERING WHY I FELT SO INCOMPLETE
I WAS MISSING SOMETHING...
WHAT COULD IT BE, OH
WHAT COULD IT BE?

CHORUS:
IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE WHO THINKS THEY MIGHT KNOW
JUST WHAT IT IS THAT MAKES ME FEEL SO LOW
PLEASE LET ME KNOW SOMETHING
JUST WHAT IT COULD BE, OH
JUST WHAT IT COULD BE

I'VE GOT A BIG PIECE OF LAND AND A NICE WARM HOUSE
TWO OLD BARNS FULL OF HORSES AND COWS
A BEAUTIFUL WIFE TO WHOM I'D SAID MY VOWS
BUT I'M MISSING SOMETHING
WHAT COULD IT BE?
WHAT COULD IT BE?

I'VE GOT A GARAGE FULL OF CARS AND A COUPLE OUT BACK
A BUNCH OF NICE SUITS ALTHOUGH THEY
ARE OFF THE RACK
AND THE FINEST CHAMPAGNE I BUY IT BY THE SIX PACK
BUT I'M MISSING SOMETHING
WHAT COULD IT BE?
WHAT COULD IT BE?

CHORUS:
IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE WHO THINKS THEY MIGHT KNOW
JUST WHAT IT IS THAT MAKES ME FEEL SO LOW
PLEASE LET ME KNOW SOMETHING
JUST WHAT IT COULD BE, OH
JUST WHAT IT COULD BE .

AND I GOT MY HEALTH AND A LIFELINE THAT'S LONG
TWO GREAT PARENTS THAT TAUGHT ME RIGHT FROM WRONG
AND I HAVE A LITTLE TALENT WHEN IT COMES TO WRITIN' A SONG
BUT I'M MISSING SOMETHING
WHAT COULD IT BE?
WHAT COULD IT BE?

THEN YOU WALKED IN THE ROOM AND I SAW THE GLOW ON YOU
I KNEW THE MISSING PART OF ME WAS NOW PART OF YOU
SHOULD WE BUY PINK OR SHOULD WE BUY BLUE
CAUSE WE'RE GETTIN' SOMEONE NEW...
OF COURSE THERE COULD BE TWO...

I WAS MISSING SOMETHING

CHORUS:
TAKE OFF!
IF YOU'RE THINKIN' BOUT LEAVIN'
TAKE OFF!
IF YOU FEEL YOU MUST GO
TAKE OFF!
BUT REMEMBER THIS TIME BABY
YOU AIN'T EVER GONNA SEE ME NO MORE

IT ALL STARTED IN KINDERGARTEN
OUT ON THE MERRY-GO-ROUND
YOUR WERE TRYING TO PUSH ME REAL FAST
WHEN YOU SLIPPED AND FELL DOWN
I STARTED LAUGHING CAUSE IT WAS FUNNY
BUT YOU TOOK OFF AND RAN
AND I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN RIGHT THEN AND THERE
THAT YOU'D TAKE OFF AGAIN, SO...

CHORUS:
TAKE OFF!
IF YOU'RE THINKIN' BOUT LEAVIN'
TAKE OFF!
IF YOU FEEL YOU MUST GO
TAKE OFF!
BUT REMEMBER THIS TIME BABY
YOU AIN'T EVER GONNA SEE ME NO MORE,,,

LATER WE DATED IN HIGH SCHOOL
AND I JUST WOULDN'T BELIEVE
WHEN EVERYBODY SAID I WAS A FOOL
AND THAT SOME DAY YOU'D LEAVE
THEN ONE NIGHT WITH THE MOON SHINING BRIGHT
ON THE PORCH WITH NOBODY HOME
YOUR BUDDIES ROLLED UP AND HOLLERED "HEY LETS GO"
AND YOU TOOK OFF AND LEFT ME ALONE, SO...

CHORUS:
TAKE OFF!
IF YOU'RE THINKIN' BOUT LEAVIN'
TAKE OFF!
IF YOU FEEL YOU MUST GO
TAKE OFF!
BUT REMEMBER THIS TIME BABY
YOU AIN'T EVER GONNA SEE ME NO MORE,,,

NOW THAT I'VE GROWN OLDER
I'VE LEARNED MY LESSON WELL
AND YOU JUST KEEP GETTIN' BOLDER
AND YOUR HEAD IS STARTIN' TO SWELL
CAUSE YOU THINK YOU CAN JUST TAKE OFF!
AND I'LL BE WAITIN' WHEN YOU GET BACK
BUT THE SECOND YOU TAKE OF THIS TIME
I'M A GONNA START TO PACK, SO...

CHORUS:
TAKE OFF!
IF YOU'RE THINKIN' BOUT LEAVIN'
TAKE OFF!
IF YOU FEEL YOU MUST GO
TAKE OFF!
BUT REMEMBER THIS TIME BABY
YOU AIN'T EVER GONNA SEE ME NO MORE,,,

TAKE OFF!

Chorus:
IF I COULD BE YOU
FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO
MAYBE I WOULD KNOW WHY YOU TREAT ME LIKE YOU DO
AND IF I COULD BE YOU
FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO
MAYBE I WOULD KNOW IF YOUR LOVE IS TRUE

SEEMS LATELY YOU AND ME
WE CAN'T EVER AGREE
AND I DON'T THINK YOU EVEN KNOW THAT YOU'RE HURTIN' ME
CAUSE I AIN'T ONE TO COMPLAIN
BUT THERE'S JUST TOO MUCH PAIN
AND BABY OUR LOVE IS DRIVIN' ME INSANE

CHORUS:
IF I COULD BE YOU
FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO
MAYBE I WOULD KNOW WHY YOU TREAT ME LIKE YOU DO
AND IF I COULD BE YOU
FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO
MAYBE I WOULD KNOW IF YOUR LOVE IS TRUE

WHEN WE GO OUT AT NIGHT'
AND COME HOME HALF TIGHT
YOU JUST WANT TO KISS AND HUG AND ACT LIKE IT'S ALRIGHT
BUT IF YOU COULD JUST SEE
THAT WHEN I MAKE MY PLEA
HOW YOU JUST GET UPSET AND TAKE IT OUT ON ME

Chorus:
IF I COULD BE YOU
FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO
MAYBE I WOULD KNOW WHY YOU TREAT ME LIKE YOU DO
AND IF I COULD BE YOU
FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO
MAYBE I WOULD KNOW IF YOUR LOVE IS TRUE

BABY I KNOW OUR HEARTS
AIN'T THAT FAR APART
BUT THEY COULD USE ANOTHER SHOT FROM OLE' CUPID'S DART
CAUSE LATELY I'VE HAD DOUBTS
ABOUT WORKIN' IT OUT
BUT IF I COULD BE YOU (FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO) I COULD FIGURE IT OUT

Chorus:
IF I COULD BE YOU
FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO
MAYBE I WOULD KNOW WHY YOU TREAT ME LIKE YOU DO
AND IF I COULD BE YOU
FOR JUST A MINUTE OR TWO
MAYBE I WOULD KNOW IF YOUR LOVE IS TRUE

IF I COULD BE YOU

IT’S BEEN NIGH ON A YEAR NOW
SINCE I QUIT DIPPIN’ SKOAL
BUT I’M GONNA TAKE ONE MORE DIP FOR THE LORD
THIS TIME TO SAVE MY SOUL
BECAUSE THEY SAY THAT HE WORKS
WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS
HOLD ME UNDER PADRE
TILL I SEE HIS LIGHT OF DAY
CHORUS:
PADRE HOLD ME UNDER
HOLD ME UNDER JUST A LITTLE EXTRA TIME
CAUSE I WANT TO SAY A FEW WORDS TO THE LORD
BEFORE I HEAR THOSE CHURCH BELLS CHIME
AND WHEN YOU PICK ME UP AND YOU DRY ME OFF
AND YOU SEND ME ON MY WAY TODAY
I’M GONNA FOLLOW JESUS
BECAUSE HE SAID, IT AND I BELIEVE, IT HE’S THE WAY

NOW DON’T ANYBODY THROW STONES AT ME
NOW MATTER WHAT YOU MAY THINK I DO
CAUSE I WORK HARD AT SERVING THE LORD
MAYBE EVEN HARDER THAN YOU
AND YES, I KNOW I’M A SINNER
BUT THAT’S BETWEEN ME AND GOD
SO, HOLD ME UNDER PADRE
UNTIL HE GIVES YOU THE NOD
CHORUS:
PADRE HOLD ME UNDER
HOLD ME UNDER JUST A LITTLE EXTRA TIME
CAUSE I WANT TO SAY A FEW WORDS TO THE LORD
BEFORE I HEAR THOSE CHURCH BELLS CHIME
AND WHEN YOU PICK ME UP AND YOU DRY ME OFF
AND YOU SEND ME ON MY WAY TODAY
I’M GONNA FOLLOW JESUS
BECAUSE HE SAID IT, AND I BELIEVE IT, HE’S THE WAY

AS I APPROACH THE HOLY WATER
AND I’M LOOKING DOWN
I’M THINKING IN JUST A WHILE
I MAY BE GOING DOWN WITH A FROWN
BUT I’LL BE COMING BACK UP WITH A SMILE
CAUSE LIFE ABOVE THAT WATER LINE
FOR ME HAS BEEN KIND OF TOUGH
SO, HOLD ME UNDER PADRE
TILL GOD SAYS I’VE HAD ENOUGH
CHORUS:
PADRE HOLD ME UNDER
HOLD ME UNDER JUST A LITTLE EXTRA TIME
CAUSE I WANT TO SAY A FEW WORDS TO THE LORD
BEFORE I HEAR THOSE CHURCH BELLS CHIME
AND WHEN YOU PICK ME UP AND YOU DRY ME OFF
AND YOU SEND ME ON MY WAY TODAY
I’M GONNA FOLLOW JESUS
BECAUSE HE SAID IT, AND I BELIEVE IT, HE’S THE WAY
OH YES, HE SAID IT, AND I BELIVE IT, HE IS THE WAY

PADRE HOLD ME UNDER
