Nikki Blonsky, Marrisa Jaret, Winokur And Ricki Lake – Mama I'm A Big Girl Now lyrics

Moms
Stop!

Nikki
Stop telling me what to do!

Moms
Don't!

Ricki
Don't treat me like a child of two

Mom
No!

Marissa
I know that you want what's best

Moms
Please!

Nikki
But mother, please

Girls
Give it a rest!

All
Stop! Don't! No! Please!
Stop! Don't! No! Please!
Stop! Don't! No! Please!
Mama I'm a big girl now!

Nikki
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

Girls
'Cause mama I'm a big girl now!

Ricki
Once upon a time I played with "childhood" toys
But I'd rather play around with "older" boys
So if I get a hickey please don't have a cow

Girls
'Cause mama I'm a big girl now!

Marrisa
Ma, I gotta tell you that without a doubt
I got 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!
Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh

Nikki
Once I used to fidget 'cause I just sat home

Ricki
But now I'm just like Gidget and I gotta get to Rome!

Marrisa
So say, arrivederci

Nikki
Toodle-loo!

Ricki
And ciao!

Girls
'Cause mama I'm a big girl now!

All
Stop! Don't! No! Please!
Stop! Don't! No! Please!
Stop! Don't! No! Please!

Girls
Mama I'm a big girl now!
(hey mama, say mama)

Marrisa
Once upon a time I was a shy young thing

Ricki
Could barely walk and talk
So much as sing and dance

Nikki
But let me hit that stage
I wanna take my bow

Girls
'Cause mama I'm a big girl now!

Nikki
Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh
Once upon a time I used to dress up 'Ken. '

Ricki
But now that I'm a woman I like bigger men

Marrisa
And I don't need a barbie doll to show me how

Girls
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now!

Girls
Ma, ya 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

Nikki
Watch me fly!

Other girls
Show off

Girls
Hey mama, say mama

Marrisa
Someday I will meet a man you won't condemn

Ricki
And we'll have some kids and you can torture them

Tracy
But let me be a star before I make that vow

Girls
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now!

Marrisa
Oh-oh-oh

Girls
Mama, I'm a big girl now!

Nikki
Hey-hey-hey

Girls
Mama, I'm a big girl

Ricki
Ooh, such a big, big girl!

Girls
I'm a big girl now!

All
Stop! Don't! No! Please!
Stop! Don't! No! Please!
Stop! Don't! No! Please!

Girls
Mama, I'm a big girl now!
