Al Martino lyrics[edit]

And you're Daddy's Little Girl You're the end of the rainbow My Pot of Gold You're Daddy's Little Girl to have and hold A precious gem is what you are You're Mommy's Bright and shining star.

You're the spirit of Christmas My star on the tree You're the Easter Bunny to Mommy and me.

You're sugar You're spice You're everything nice and you're Daddy's Little Girl.

You're the end of the rainbow My Pot of Gold You're Daddy's Little Girl to have and hold A precious gem is what you are You're Mommy's Bright and shining star.

You're the spirit of Christmas My star on the tree You're the Easter Bunny to Mommy and me You're sugar You're spice You're everything nice and you're Daddy's Little Girl.[1]

Michael Bublé lyrics[edit]

Little girl of mine, with eyes of shining blue, Little girl of mine, I love you, yes, I do; No one else could be so sweet, You have made my life complete:

Chorus: You're the end of the rainbow, my pot o' gold, You're Daddy's Little Girl to have and hold; A precious gem is what you are, You're mommy's bright and shining star;

You're the spirit of Christmas, my star on the tree, You're the Easter bunny to mommy and me; You're sugar, you're spice, you're every thing nice, And you're Daddy's Little Girl.

Chorus

You're the treasure I cherish, so sparkling and bright, You were touched by holy and beautiful light; Like angels that sing, a heavenly thing, And you're Daddy's Little Girl.[2]
