“Sunrise Sunset” was sung in the film “Fiddler On The Roof” during the marriage procession. Here’s a clip:-
This song is very appropriate for a Father & Daughter dance; this clip shows Becky and her father, Dan, dancing to this at her wedding:-
In addition to lyrics very suitable for the event; Roger Whittaker’s version of this song has a rhythm and tempo perfect for dancing a Slow Waltz.
Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don`t remember growing older,
When did they?
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn`t it yesterday when they were small?
Sunrise sunset, sunrise, sunset,
Swiftly flow the days,
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming even as they gaze . . .
Sunrise sunset, sunrise, sunset!
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laden with happiness and tears . . .
