"Got To Be There" as written by and Elliott Willensky....
Got to be there, got to be there in the morning
When she says hello to the world.
Got to be there, got to be there,
Bring her good times and show her that she's my girl.
Oh, what a feeling there'll be
The moment I know she loves me.
'Cause when I look in her eyes.
I realize I need her sharing the world beside me.
So I've got to be there, got to be there in the morning,
And welcome her into my world,
And show her that she's my girl.
When she says hello world!
Got to be there.
I need her sharing the world beside me.

That's why I've got to be there, got to be there
Where love begins and that's everywhere she goes,
I've got to be there so she knows
That when she's with me she's home, yeah

Got to be there, got to be there, got to be there.
Got to be there, got to be there, got to be there.
Got to be there, oh baby baby got to be there, got to be there.
Got to be there, got to be there, got to be there.
Got to be there, oh got to be there, got to be there.
Got to be there, got to be there, got to be there.
Got to be there, got to be there, got to be there.

    General CommentNice little song about wanting to always be there with the one that you love. I always thought he meant that he'd dream of her and then in the morning his dream came true. ;)

    General CommentI always thought this song was about seeing your new born child, how much you love the baby and want to show her the world for the first time. Also, to let her know that her place in the world is with him.
