(Stop)
Stop telling me what to do
(Don't)
Don't treat me like a child of two

(No)
I know that you want what's best
(Please)
But mother, please, give it a rest

Stop, don't, no, please
Stop, don't, no, please
Stop, don't, no, please
Mama, I'm a big girl now

Once upon a time when I was just a kid
You never let me do just what the older kids did
But lose that laundry list of what you won't allow
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now

Once upon a time I used to play with childhood toys
But now I'd rather play around with older boys
So if I get a hickey, please don't have a cow
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now

Ma, I gotta tell you that without a doubt
I get my best dancing lessons from you
You're the one who taught me how to twist and shout
Because you shout non-stop and you're so twisted too

Once I used to fidget 'cause I just sat home
But now I'm just like Gidget and I gotta get to Rome
So say, arrivederci, toodle-loo and ciao
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now

Stop, don't, no, please
Stop, don't, no, please
Stop, don't, no, please
Mama, I'm a big girl now
(Hey mama, say mama)

Once upon a time I was a shy young thing
Could barely walk and talk so much as dance and sing
But let me hit that stage, I wanna take my bow
'Cause mama I'm a big girl now

Woah, once upon a time I used to dress up Ken
But now that I'm a woman, I like bigger men
And I don't need a Barbie doll to show me how
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now

Ma, you always taught me what was right from wrong
And now I just wanna give it a try
Mama, I've been in the nest for far too long
So please give a push and mama watch me fly, watch me fly
(Show off)

Someday I will meet a man you won't condemn
And we will have some kids and you can torture them
But let me be a star before I take that vow
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now

Mama, I'm a big girl now, woah
Mama, I'm a big girl, hey, hey, hey
Mama, I'm a big girl
(Ooh, such a big, big girl)
I'm a big girl now

Stop, don't, no, please
Stop, don't, no, please
Stop, don't, no, please
Mama, I'm a big girl now
