From the recording Growing Up


On a rainy September Wednesday
The sun woke up on your first day
The leaves were turning, our hearts were yearning
To hear your first cry and see your face

Oh, Annie, Annie,
Annie Beth
You are loved, so loved
You are heaven sent
Today is a day we will never forget
Oh, Annie, Annie,
Annie Beth

You are small now but you will learn how
To ride a bike and tie your shoes
And as you grow our hearts will grow too
We will never stop loving you

If you ever get scared or lonely
Call for your mother, go hug your dad
Look for the redbirds, they’re all around you
They’ll make you happy if you get sad
