"My heart belongs to daddy" as written by and Cole Porter....
While tearing off a game of golf
I may make a play for the caddy
But when I do, I don't follow though
'Cause my heart belongs to Daddy
If I invite a boy some night
To dine on my fine finnan haddie
I just adore his asking for more
But my heart belongs to Daddy
Yes my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn't be bad.
Yes, my heart belongs to daddy
Da-da Da-da-da Da-da-da--ad
So I want to warn you laddie,
Though I think you're perfectly swell
That my heart belongs to Daddy
'Cause my daddy he treats it so well

    My InterpretationI suspect that "dine on my finnan haddie" is a euphemism for "box lunch"! ;-)

    General CommentThe song was written by famous american songwriter Cole Porter for the 1938 musical "Leave it to me" which it was performed by Mary Martin. To which she sings this song while doing a striptease, apparently she was stranded at a Siberian railway station only wearing a fur coat. She performed the same song in 1940's movie "Love Thy Neighbor" to which she is wearing a fur coat once again but this time she is wearing an evening gown underneath. She again sung it again in the Cole Porter biopic "Night and Day" in 1943 to which she performed the striptease again.

    Finnian Haddie is smoked haddock, a type of fish. Though it does kinda worry me, it sounds almost incestuous.

    Lyric CorrectionIsn't it "teeing off" a game of golf? I've never heard of "tearing" off in golf.
