"You're A Big Girl now" as written by and Robert E. Douglas Lamar C. Bryant....
You're a big girl now
No more daddy's little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)
You're a big girl now
No more daddy's little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)

No more pigtails in your hair
No more silly looks with a childish glare
No more doll for you to play
No more dumbness in the things you say

You're a big girl now
No more daddy's little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)
You're a big girl now
No more daddy's little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)

You can love, girl, if you must
You can kiss, girl, if you must
What you'll see day by day
All the realness in your way

And you're a big girl now
No more daddy's little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)
You're a big girl now
No more daddy's little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)

(Baby, I love you) Baby, I love you
(Yes, I do) Oh, yes, I do now
(In all my life) In all my life
(You're my dream come true) You're my dream come true
(You're a big girl now) You're a big girl now
(Yes, you are)
(You're my happiness) Shining star

You're a big girl now
No more daddy's little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)
You're a big girl now

    General CommentThis sounds like a man who is in love with a much younger woman. I think the references to her not being a daddy's little girl anymore are telling of how he may have been an adult when she was still underaged. Maybe he never looked at her romantically until she actually became an adult. Perhaps they both have an interest in each other and the lines "you can love, girl, if you must. You can kiss, girl, if you must." are of him reassuring her that their love, though societally frowned upon, is still legal and permissible because she is of age now." If the lines "Baby, I love you" and "You're a dream come true" weren't said, I might think that it was about a dad or male parental figure giving his daughter his approval of her demonstrating that she is now a woman whereas she was previously sheltered. But those lines to me (I.e the "baby" references) indicate that this is romantic.
