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 a 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 prayed that she'd say yes


And then all of a sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me
How we went
from something's missing
To a family
Lookin' back all I can say
About all the
things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That 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 somethin' more
Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends

Crowded 'round the nursery window as they bring the baby in

And now all of a
sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me
How we've gone from something's missing

To a family
Lookin' through the glass I think about the man
That's standin' next to me

And I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

Lookin'
back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the
dad
That he didn't have to be
Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he
didn't have to be
Because he didn't have to be
You know he didn't have to be
