"I'm Your Daddy" as written by and Rivers Cuomo Lukasz Gottwald....
I thought tonight would suck like every other night
I'd party with my friends
But when I saw you grooving on the dance floor
Normal came to an end

We started talking and man, it was so clear to me
There's no one else like you
You got the brains, the body, and the beauty
To top it off, you're cool

This ain't impossible
This ain't improbable
You are my baby tonight
And I'm your daddy

This ain't believable
This ain't predictable
You are my baby tonight
And I'm your daddy

I hope that I ain't freaking you out
You probably hear it all the time
I swear I ain't like those other boys
I'm a special kind

I would like to give a demonstration
Of what it is I do
I'll take you out to dinner at Palermo's
We'll split a cheese fondu

This ain't impossible
This ain't improbable
You are my baby tonight
And I'm your daddy

This ain't believable
This ain't predictable
You are my baby tonight
And I'm your daddy

I will ape a goombah
If you tire
Try my best to moonwalk
On the wire

I just want to, ooh ah,
Feel your fire
Feel your fire
Feel your fire!


This ain't impossible
This ain't improbable
You are my baby tonight
And I'm your daddy

This ain't believable
This ain't predictable
You are my baby tonight
And I'm your daddy

    General CommentI'm pretty sure "spinach cheese fondue" should read "We'll split a cheese fondue"

    And is "egg the goomba" a mario reference or something?

    Song MeaningI heard somewhere that Rivers was inspired by his daughter Mia to write this song when she was in the hospital.
    I agree with ShadowLerche though. Seems to me he's talking about being smitten with a younger woman.

    The 'cheese fondue' part always makes me smile :-)

    General CommentYeah, you're right: Rivers came up with the phrase "You are my baby tonight, and I'm your daddy" the night his daughter was born. Strange that he ended up turning it into, like you said, a song about being smitten.
