Welcome To The World
©2009 Words & Music by Cameron Gray

Welcome to the world,
Bouncing baby girl
We met you on a rainy afternoon,
We love your dad and mom
And now that you come along
We know that we can’t help but love you too

Welcome to the world,
Beautiful little girl,
Bringing to us so much love and joy,
And every single day
Gonna hope and wish and pray
That you grow up feeling what we feel today

Singing la la-la la-la

Welcome to the world
Beautiful bouncing baby girl
We met you on a rainy afternoon
But here inside our heart,
The clouds all broke apart
And now everything is bright and clean and new

Special thanks to Johnny C for the piano and mixing expertise, Papa Will for adding a little violin for his daughter’s song, Mellie, Nate & Sarah, Matt & Erika, Barbara, Richard, and Wes for the voices, snaps, hand claps and barely-stifled laughter. And most of all thanks to Will & Carolyn for giving us little Mia, definitely someone worth singing about!
