    General CommentI believe the couple is already married (especially due to the timing of this song...back when few people lived together outside of marriage), but she wishes for him to act like her husband. She finds him mean. She's willing to cook and sew and be the wife that he wants, but she needs him to "act" like her husband...loving; kind; loyal; giving, etc. He is called "daddy' either because he's older (which was the case in many relationships of that time) or because he's the one more financially responsible for the family unit. Also, back then the man usually ruled the roost, which was acceptable providing he treated his woman well.
