Mmm yeah
School is out
Where to now
I'm packing up, heading south
One last box
One last look around

I remember being so excited
Brand new friends that were so inviting
That's the way it's been since I was young

And I love nothing more
Than seeing my daddy in his uniform

I'm the daughter of a military man
It's the way of life and I understand
And I'm so proud to say
Made me who I am today
I hope down the road I find a real good man
That's done half the things that my daddy has
And it's a beautiful thing, my sweet American dream, yeah

We laid on our back looking up at the sky
Watching F-15s scream on by
While me and my brother and sister would play outside
Shopping at the commissary
Dancing at the military ball
Yeah we did it all

At five o'clock when the anthem plays
You could hear a pin drop
On that whole place

I'm the daughter of a military man
It's the way of life and I understand
And I'm so proud to say
Made me who I am today

I hope down the road I find a real good man
That's done half the things that my daddy has
And it's a beautiful thing, my sweet American dream
Oh yeah

Home is where you hang your hat
That's what mama says
And I'm fine with that

I'm the daughter of a military man
It's the way of life and I understand
And I'm so proud to say
Made me who I am today
I hope someday I find a real good man
That's done half the things that my daddy has
And it's a beautiful thing, oh yeah
And it's a beautiful thing
My sweet American dream
My sweet American dream
Ooh yeah
