Marvelettes – My Daddy Knows Best lyrics

My daddy told me that boys may say some things that aren't true
Yeah, they promise many sweet things that they never intend to do
Whoa, you say your love is strong
And you'll never do me wrong
But let me tell you that

My daddy told me to open up my eyes and not be blind
Well, cause everytime I look at you, everything you do seems so fine
Whoa, I love you so
But I'll let you go

Unless you get out and get a job
Whoa get out and get a job
I'm gonna wait 'til you pass the test
Cause my daddy knows best
My daddy knows best now

He doesn't want me to make the same mistakes
He says romance without finance can be a nuisance

I need your loving but
My daddy told me
Yes he told me that our love is fine
Whoa, but don't let it mislead you
Cause daddy also said that love is blind

While you're in poolrooms
You should be in school rooms

And get out and get a job
Whoa get out and get a job
I'm gonna wait 'til you pass the test
Cause my daddy knows best

I don't' care what you say
We've got to do it his way
Don't say that he's mean
I'll have to tell him everything
