Ben Folds - Gracie Lyrics




You can't fool me, I saw you when you came out
You got your momma's taste but you got my mouth
And you will always have a part of me
Nobody else is ever going to see
Gracie girl

With your cards to your chest walking on your toes
What you got in the box only Gracie knows
And I would never try to make you be
Anything you didn't really want to be
Gracie girl

Life flies by in seconds
You're not a baby Gracie, you're my friend
You'll be a lady soon but until then
You gotta do what I say

You nodded off in my arms watching TV
I won't move you an inch even thought my arm's asleep

One day you're gonna want to go
I hope we taught you everything you need to know
Gracie girl

And there will always be a part of me
Nobody else is ever gonna see but you and me
My little girl
My Gracie girl

  48. Gracie Hughes

    My dad intoduced me to this song when i was 6.. and... he died 1 year ago. i listen to this song everyday becauee it reminds me of him and... that time really, does, fly and if you arent paying attention you might miss chances in you life to tell a person you love them. Which i should have done more with my dad.

    Tommy Sandelier

    I'm so sorry for your loss. As a father of two little girls I assure you that he knew.

    John Bonner

    Gracie Hughes God bless you

    Danimal174

    I’m so sorry to hear this. Not sure how old you are now, but you must be pretty young to have lost a parent. I too lost my dad at an early age (17 for me); one of the songs that reminds me of him is Tears In Heaven, which came out right after he died.

    Anyway, just wanted to say how sorry I am to hear about your dad.

  49. Nancy Schaeffer

    My husband and I are expecting a baby girl this May/June! I kept thinking of the name Gracie and wondered, " Are there any songs with the name Gracie out there?" I am a big Ben Folds fan, but had never heard of this song! In fact, my husband and I danced to "The Luckiest" at our wedding. I think it's a sign- Gracie is our little one's name!!

    Gray

    Nancy Schaeffer my name is Gracie so I just wanna say I CANT FIND MY NAME ON ANY KEY CHAIN OR ANYTHING ELSE

    David Banks

    Lovely story. What a gorgeous song

    G_Mae 05

    greyisded I agree! My names gracie to and it’s impossible!

    Grace Weatherford

    Nancy Schaeffer so glad to have another Gracie going around this world!

  50. Annie Doke

    My name is gracie and he would ALWAYS play this song and I would ALWAYS cry when they said one u gonna wanna go I would always cry at that part and I still do and I love my SOOO very much and I sill ALWAYS love him😍

  51. Renee Pickwoad

    My daughter is named Grace and she was very sick as a baby, 90 days in the NICU...one of her therapists also was a singer and she introduced us to this song!

    Grace Virginia

    +Renee Pickwoad hope she feels better!

    Danimal174

    Sounds like she is fine now; I hope so. My daughter was a preemie who spent 25 days in the NICU; that’s a hard time for parents.

  52. skyler trahan

    Is it bad that I named my daughter after this song?

    Warman Fuzzy

    +CopperFlop 22 hahahaha. Genuinely laughed for some reason.

  53. gracie finney

    Hi my name is Gracie and when I was little my dad always played this song. He said that "this is your song" right when I was watching this tears started streaming down my cheeks. I love my dad. <3

    Gracie M

    gracie finn sameeee legit tears 😭

    Gracie M

    I feel the same I want to cry every time but I’m to embarrassed. I always tell my dad to turn it off because I want to cry.😢😢

    Hey my name is Gracie too. My mom always sang this to me when I was a baby 😊

  56. epicblade101900 Xbox

    I thought the sing was actually black at 00:50. Then realized he wasn't.

  57. Newb

    my  daughters name is  gracie  and  she  looks  like  the  kid  in this  video  and  
    wen  ever  i  watch this  video  it  makes  me  tear  up

  58. Connor Duggan

    My daughter's name is Gracie and she looks like the baby on the thumbnail of this video!

  59. Cassie Turley

    I have a neice named Grace and I have been listening to this song for 7 yrs now and it still makes me cry. She is my world and I love her so much! This is a GREAT song!!!

    Jim Rawlings

    I really love that song

  60. Derek Pettus

    Believe it or not... Not everything is about race... Get over yourself

  61. John Hart

    I enjoy this song far more without the mono-ethnic visual. Believe it or not, black fathers act as nurturing parents as well.

    ricky freels

    Odd. You claim mono ethnic...it's not. The video basically ends on an Asian father and daughter. What you mean is you don't see any black father's and daughters. The video isn't making a statement on who is a good father or not. That's in your head. But what's interesting to me is that you saw only one race...as if there's black and then every other race. Either way, well done on attempting to make a beautiful song about your racial insecurities. And open your mind a bit.

    Zackary Tanner

    Okay. My first response was to tell you to stfu but that would be wrong of me to do. John this is about love for your daughter. Do t think too much. We're all in love with our babies. Black or white or brown or yellow or whatever color you want to see has nothing to do with it. This song is about love

  62. gracigirl13

    My name is Grace I go by Gracie I want this to be my wedding song with my dad when I'm older.

    Grace Weatherford

    Me too, what a great idea

  63. Danna Smolinsky

    Grace, A husband is only a technicality :) you can plan before you find the right one! Nothing wrong with it!

  64. MuchosNachos

    I made the mistake of Googling "best father daughter songs" ... now I'm a blubbery mess here at the office. Hope no one stops by; they'll think I'm some freak.

    ja 47

    Get on with your work

  65. Danny G

    This song is so beautiful, the current views doesn't do it justice.....

  66. Savannah Hulsey

  68. darthmatrix101

  69. alexagreen06

    Cute, would make for a really cute father daughter wedding song but I would be laughing way to much with this one, because it sounds so much like me :P

  70. Camron John

    My sisters name is gracie and this song will definatly be played at her wedding

  71. Gracie Jones

    This is going to be my wedding song!!

  72. chris campbell

    My name is grace and my dad used to sing this to me it always makes me cry

  73. wittyincompetent

    This song is really sweet, but with some melancholy undertones. Meanwhile, the other song "We're Still Fighting It" is achingly resonant and almost bitter at points. My favorite would be the latter, simply because it's far easier for me to relate to, but both are beautiful and they make me emotional.

  74. yerr

    This song is about his daughter. She was my friend at school but she moved.

    Tim Dambacher

    Cool that she was your friend, but "this song is about his daughter" is a wee bit obvious 😉

  75. Bba Babba

    Awww =)

  77. Shadae caradine

  89. ItsOver9000videos

    I'll never forget the first time I heard this song. I was working at McDonalds and a pigeon got stuck in the play place. I had to get it out using some hot grease from the frier. This song was playing while I was cleaning up the mutilated corpse of that pigeon. LOVE THE SONG!!!
