Stop!
Stop telling me what to do
Don't!
Don't treat me like a child of two
No!
I know that you want what's best
Please!
But mother please give it a rest

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

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
Cause mama, I'm a big girl now!

Once upon a time I played with childhood toys
But now I'd rather play around with teenage boys
So if I get a hicky please don't, have a cow!
Cause mama, I'm a big girl now!

Ma, I gotta tell you that without a doubt
I got my best dancing lessons from yo-ou
You're the one who taught me how to twist and shout
Because you shout non-stop, and you're so twisted to-o
ooooo

Once I used to fidget cause I just sat home
But now I'm just like Gidget, and I gotta get to Rome
So say arrividicci, toodle-loo, and ciao!
Cause mama I'm a big girl now!

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

Hey mama...
Say mama...

Once upon a time I was a shy young thing
Could barely walk and talk so much as dance and sing
But let me hit that stage I wanna take my bow...
Cause mama, I'm a big girl now!

Once upon a time I used to dress up Ken
But now that I'm a woman I like...bigger men
And I don't need a barbie doll to show me how
Cause mama I'm a big girl now!

Ma, you always taught me what was right from wrong
And now I just wanna give it a try
Mama, I'm been in a nest for far to long!
So please give a push and mama Watch me fly!
Watch me fly!

One day I will meet a man you won't condemn
And we will have some kids and you can torture them
But let me be a star before I take that vow!
Cause mama, I'm a big girl now

Mama, I'm a big girl now
Hey, ya, ya, ya, yay
Mama...I'm a big girl...
oo, such a big big girl
I'm a big girl...now...oooo (2x)
(stop don't no please)
mama, I'm a big girl now!
