Oh Daddy
Ooh, sock it 2 me

C 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 (Oh Daddy, dance)

C all the people wonder Y
Set ur goals high, high as the sky
C the people runnin' from the truth
Livin' N the past when they need 2 B livin' the new

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 (Hey)

Pop
Daddy Pop
Pop
Punchin' N the rock 'n' roll clock
Talk guitar, talk
Oh Daddy

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

Oh Daddy
2
Oh yeah
3
Ooh, sock it 2 me

Oh, U'r the best (C'mon)

C 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, oh Daddy)
Brother steady talkin' while the girlies steady hop
Pop Daddy, Daddy Pop (Oh)
Punchin' N the rock 'n' roll clock

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?
got grooves & grooves up on the shelf (Oh Daddy)
Deep purple concord jams (Oh yeah)
This party will slam
don't think U understand (Ooh, sock it 2 me)
Whatever U can't do, Daddy can (Oh)
The 1 & only Daddy Pop (Oh Daddy)
1 & 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
Papa Daddy's comin'
Ring di-di-ding - somebody's callin'
The jester's on the phone
(Oh yeah Rosie, tell him ain't home)
Oh
Just 1 N a long line that wanna C me (Daddy Pop)

Oh Daddy, oh yeah {repeat}
Oh Daddy, oh yeah (Daddy Pop) {repeat}

(Oh Daddy) (Daddy Pop) (Oh yeah) {repeat}
Daddy Pop lead the band
As step 2 the mic & lend a hand
2 the funky groove
Let's make a whole house move
Yo band, let me hear U say, "Ooh" (Ooh!)
That's right
We're gonna turn this mother out 2night
We ain't leavin' till they gonna have 2 turn off the lights
& if they do, then what we gonna do?
Dance it up cuz we ain't thru!
Yeah, hit it!
It's time 2 get wit it, huh
ain't no angel so 2 hell with playin' innocent
Those who came 2 party know just what 'm talkin' about
So come on, y'all
Wave ur hands N the air, everybody (Yeah)
Wave ur hands N the air (Yeah)
4 the funkiest band N the land & don't 4get
The P A R T Y M A N - peace!
Yeah - peace!
& like said
Right about now NPG is like, huh, out
(Oh Daddy) (Daddy Pop) (Oh yeah)
Hah!
