She had such tiny tears
She likes to shop at Sears
Now she's a big mamma
Cry, cry, cry, cry
Old money
Have mercy
He put the bait onto his line
Fish are swimming in the pond

He knows just what she wants
She is his latest catch
Oh, mammy

Oh, daddy's scraping bottom now
Daddy, daddy, daddy does the talking now
By shiny things like jewels and gold
Let 'em sail away
You lucky dog
Drinking champagne
His heart's desire
Like a fairy tale

I seen you getting down
When daddy's not around
Big Daddy
Oh, momma
He knows how to drive 'em wild
Saying "This is mine and this is her.

One and one is two
Each with a golden spoon
Got a one way ticket on a Southbound train
And Big Daddy laughed

One fine day she'll explode
No one sees anymore
Don't get caught running 'round
Bubbles float to the top
