I used to fall in love
With all those young boys
Who maul the young cuties,
But now I find I'm more inclined
To keep my mind on my duties.
For since I came to care
For such a sweet millionaire,
While tearing off a game of golf,
I make a play for the caddy,
But when I do, I don't follow through,
Cause my heart belongs to Daddy.
If I invite a boy some night
To dine on my fine finnan haddie,
I just adore his asking for more,
But my heart belongs to Daddy.
yes, my heart belongs to Daddy,
So I simply can't be bad.
Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy,
Da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da-dad!
So I want to warn you, laddie,
Tho' I know you're perfectly swell,
That my heart belongs to Daddy,
Cause Daddy treats it so well.
