"I Got The Girl" as written by and Jon Bon Jovi....
It feels like I'm walkin' on air
When we walk down our street
When the neighbors stop to watch us walk by
You can hear 'em talking (let them talk)

Sometimes I think that you're the only reason
The sun still shines (when it shines)
And when this wicked world starts bringing me down
I tell myself that I'm one lucky guy

I got the girl (with all the cards)
I got the girl (she's a work of art)
I got the girl (who's gonna break my heart)

She says that someday she's gonna marry me
When that day comes that we walk down the aisle
She'll make me feel like a prince, a lord or a king
She likes to wear her stripe with her plaids
And she won't brush her hair (I swear)
She don't like wearing shoes in December
But I don't care (I don't care)

I got the girl (with all the cards)
I got the girl (she's a work of art)
I got the girl (who's gonna break my heart)

If I was a holy man I'd get down on my knees
So the angels that watch over her would give a break to me
Holy Mother of saint bubble gum and sister band-aid knees
Won't you please pray for the ones like me

But the truth is someday
Somebody is gonna take her (you see)
But the queen of hearts will always be
A five-year-old princess to me (to me)

I got the girl (with all the cards)
I got the girl (she's a work of art)
I got the girl (who's gonna break my heart)

I got the girl (she's gonna leave her mark)
I got the girl (she's a work of art)
I got the girl (she's gonna break your heart)

I got the girl

    General CommentI love this song! My favourite line is 'So the angels that watch over her would give a break to me
    Holy Mother of saint bubble gum and Sister band-aid knees '

    General CommentFirst, I am a huge Bon Jovi fan. Second, I love this cd, when i heard this song I thought it was just a love song...now as I read the lyrics it becomes clear to me that it's really about his daughter, Stephanie. The lines "If I was a holy man I'd get down on my knees
    So the angels that watch over her would give a break to me
    Holy Mother of saint bubble gum and Sister band-aid knees
    Won't you please pray for the ones like me

    But the truth is someday
    Somebody is gonna take her from me
    But the queen of hearts will always be
    A five-year-old princess to me (to me)"
    --The mother of bubblegum and sister band aid knee is a kid reference, and about him on his knees begging is him begging and wanting a little girl. And i hope I don't have to explain the five-year-old princess thing, that should be obvious. It just all makes sense.

    General CommentI love this song, its very sweet and yes, it does refer to Stephanie, but when I first heard it, not really listening to it and just hearing the chorus, I thought it was a really cute jumpy happy song :-) and it still is...

    General CommentA great song. Can just imagine Stephanie listening to this when she's 18.

    General CommentI play this song for my little sister, who's 6. It's cool that a father-daughter song can be interpreted in a different way. That's the beauty of music.
