See my brother talkin' plenty head
Steady wishin' he could sleep n ur bed
Steady wishin' he was n ur car
Just a steady wishin' that he was who U r

Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop
Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop
Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop
Punchin' n the rock 'n' roll clock

See all the people wonder why
Set ur goals high, high as the sky
The jester wonders how it might've been, ha
Soon we all got the king covered while we all splashin' the queen

Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop (Oh yeah)
Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop
Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop
Punchin' n the rock 'n' roll clock (Oh, hey)
Talk guitar, talk

Daddy Pop is the writer and love is the book
U better look it over b4 U overlook

I got all my time if U come correct
If U don't I'm playin' with a pop intellect
From the promenade, I'm shootin' from the hip
Oh yeah, I'll turn the other cheek
Swing, oops, and miss
See this? {muah} Kiss it (Shovel this, shovel this)
Oh

See all my critics wastin' time
Worryin' about the Daddy while he beat U blind
Get ur life 2gether, stop ur cryin'
Whenever U say that U can't, that's when U need 2 b tryin'

Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop (Ooh)
Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop
Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop (Oh)
Punchin' n the rock 'n' roll clock (Punchin' n, punchin' n)

What kind of fool is this that thinks Daddy will miss?
What kind of boy would dis, huh, a list as long as history itself?
I got grooves and grooves up on the shelf
Deep purple concord jams
This party I will slam
I don't think U understand
Whatever U can't do, Daddy can
The 1 and only Daddy Pop
Dig it, 1 and only
Daddy Pop

Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop (Oh no my brother)
Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop (There ain't no stoppin')
Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop (Check the record, yeah)
Punchin' n the rock 'n' roll clock
Poppa Daddy's comin'
Ring di-di-ding, somebody's callin' (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
The jester's on the phone
(Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop)
Oh yeah Rosie, tell him I ain't home (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Oh
Just 1 n a long line that wanna see me (Punchin' n the rock 'n' roll clock)

They're callin' ur number (Yes they r, how many screened, baby?)
(Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Daddy's on the screen last night (Can U hear the callin'?)
(Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop)
Everybody callin' my number (Wait a minute, that ain't right)
(Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Well, that ain't right (It ain't right)
(Punchin' n the rock 'n' roll clock)
What's my name, what's my name? (My number)
(Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Daddy Papa come 2 me (Ooh, what we doin', what we doin'?)
(Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop)
Punchin' n the rockin' clock (Around the clock, oh yeah)
Hey oh (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
(Punchin' n the rock 'n' roll clock)
Altogether now, hey oh
(Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Everybody clap ur hands (Hey, callin' ur number)
(Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop)
Callin' and sort a thousand (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Hey (Punchin' n the rock 'n' roll clock)
Ain't no stoppin' now (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Papa... Daddy (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Oh yeah... (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Ain't no stoppin' now (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Daddy Pop poppin' n the house and floor (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Daddy Pop poppin' n the rockable recline (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Ain't no... stoppin' now (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Ain't... (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)

This funk has been brought 2 U by Daddy Pop
And the New Power Generation (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Ain't no stoppin' till U drop (Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop)
Hahaha...
