    You could ask your DJ to shorten whichever song you end up choosing - we did this for the mother/son song since it was really long!

    I danced with my dad to "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw & my husband danced with his mom to "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban.

    A good friend of mine danced to, "I loved her first" by Heartland with her dad.

    The verses are all about how a father's little girl is in love and how's she growing up, etc. Here are the lyrics for the chorus:
     But I loved her first and I held her first
    And a place in my heart will always be hers
    From the first breath she breathed
    When she first smiled at me
    I knew the love of a father runs deep
    And I prayed that she'd find you someday
    But it still hard to give her away
    I loved her first

    It's about a 3-3:30 minute song, but the touching thing that she did (which might work for you if you want to shorten it a bit) is that her dad handed her off to her husband about halfway through the song. There was seriously not a dry eye in the house. It was very touching.

    I let my dad pick

    he picked I loved Her First by Heartland--wasn't too long

    i think the M/S dance was Child of Mine by Carole King.

    we'd recently been to a bunch of weddings that used You raise Me up so decided against that,but it was a runner up
