    Now that you’ve dinner, how about a song!

    The Perfect Father’s Day Gift – “A Song”

    One of the trendiest Father’s Day gifts this year is MUSIC, and
    one of the most popular songs is called “Little Girl.”

    It’s a song written by E. Walter Smith to be used for the father-daughter dance at weddings. However, lots of daughters, and even wives have discovered that this is the can’t-go-wrong, inexpensive Father’s Day gift… “Little Girl” is one of those songs that can bring a tear to the eyes of even the toughest dad.

    People can listen to “Little Girl” on Smith’s website
