While tearing off a game of golf,
I may make a play for the caddie,
but when I do I don't follow thorugh,
'cause my heart belongs to Daddy.

If I invite a boy some night 
to dine on my fine fin and haddie,
I just adore his asking for more, 
but my heart belongs to Daddy.

(Chorus:)
Yes my heart belongs to daddy, so I simply couldn't be bad, 
yes my heart belongs to Daddy,
Dad dad dad, dad dad dad, da da dad.
So I want to warn you, laddy,
though I know that you're perfectly swell,
that my heart belongs to Daddy,
'cause my daddy - he treats it - so well.

While tearing off a game of golf,
I may make a play for the caddie,
but when I do I don't follow through,
sugga dugga doo, sugga dugga doo, ooh, Daddy.

If I invite a boy some night 
to cook up a fine enchilada,
those Spanish rice, it's all very nice, 
beda beda bedabedabeda dada.

Yes my heart belongs to my daddy, so I simply couldn't be bad, 
yes my heart belongs to Daddy,
Dad dad dad, dad dad dad, da da dad.
So I want to warn you, laddy,
though I know you're perfectly swell,
that my heart belongs to daddy,
'cause my daddy, he treats it - so - good.
