"I'm a Big Girl Now" as written by and Jeri Cooper....
Me and my childhood sweetheart
Have come to the parting of the ways
He still treats me like he did In our baby days.
I'm a little bit older And a little bit bolder
Since both of us were three.
I'm a little more padded Something new has been added
He oughtta take one good look at me

I'm a big girl now
I wanna be daring like a big girl now
When daddy tells those certain jokes it isn't fair
He tells me I'm too young and makes me take the air
But I could tell a couple that would curl his hair
I'm a big girl now.

I'm a big girl now
I wanna be handled like a big girl now
I'm tired of being babied like a kid of three
I'm tired of having chaperoned to follow me
I wanna have some secrets in my diary
I'm a big girl now

I'm a big girl now
I wanna be cuddled like a big girl now
I'm through with going to movies with my Uncle Tim
Through with going to picnics with my old Aunt Min
I wanna go to Mexico with, you know him
I'm a big girl now

I'm a big girl now
I wanna be wanted like a big girl now
I'm tired of staying home each evening after dark
Tired of being dynamite without a spark
I wanna learn what fellows do in Central Park
I'm a big girl now
