She had such tiny tears
Just like a Barbie doll
She likes to shop at sears
And visit shopping malls
Now she's a big Momma
Tell poppa
Cry, cry, cry, cry

Old money
Old money doesn't matter now
Have mercy
Mercy, mercy, daddy's goin' fishin' now
He put the bait onto his line
Windin' out his reel
Fish are swimmin' in the pond
Gonna let 'em sail away

He's got his eye on you
He knows just what she wants
The fish is gonna bite
She is his latest catch
'Cause he's big daddy
Ohh, mommy
Cry, cry, cry, cry

Big daddy
Ohh, daddy's scrapin' bottom now
Ohh, Momma
Daddy, daddy, daddy does the talkin' now
Mesmerized like horny toads
The shiny things like jewels and gold
Throwin' all their pearls to swing
Let 'em sail away

You lucky dog
You'll be on easy street
Drinkin' champagne
She gets all that she wants
His heart's desire
No more worries anymore
Like a fairy tale
Anything that she likes

I seen you do the dog
I seen you gettin' down
A swimmin' back and forth
When daddy's not around

Big daddy
Ohh, she's pretty as a picture now
Ohh, momma
Ohh, what a little martyr now
He knows how to drive 'em wild
One day you'd think she'd see
Sayin' "This is mine and this is her's
Now take that stuff away"

It's best left unspoken
One and one is two
The velvet lies sing softly
Each with a golden spoon
And she passed her time in the wind and the rain
Got a one way ticket on a southbound train
Said, "Baby, baby, wants to have a good time"
And big daddy laughed
And big daddy smiled

Like dynamite
One fine day she'll explode
Who's laughin' now?
No one sees anymore
Sneak in and out
Don't get caught runnin' 'round
Swim back and forth
Bubbles float to the top
