Papa I know you're going to be upset, 'cause I was always your little girl, but you should know by now, I'm not a baby.
You always taught me right from wrong. I need your help, daddy please be strong. I may be young at heart, but I know what I'm saying.
The one you warned me all about, the one you said I could do without, we're in an awful mess, and I don't mean maybe, please.
Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep. Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep, but I made up my mind, I'm keeping my baby.
