Songtekst

I saw a crazy chick a-running down the street
I said, a-whoo, pretty baby, why the rigged beat?
She said, wow, what a square, don't you dig the scene?
Daddy Cool's playing his piano machine

Well, Daddy who? (Daddy Cool!)
Daddy who? (Daddy Cool!)

Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Cool daddy, cool, ahaha)
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Cool daddy, cool)
Daddy Cool, Daddy Coooool
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Ahaha, ahaha)

She led me by the hand (Cool daddy, cool, ahaha)
Down to the railroad track (Cool daddy, cool)
There in a tin roof honky tonk
Cool Daddy shook the shack (Ahaha, ahaha)

The joint was dim and dark (Cool daddy, cool, ahaha)
Except for one spotlight (Cool daddy, cool)
A-shining on to frantic hands
That rock like dynamite (Ahaha, ahaha)

Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Rock, Cool daddy, rock, rock, Daddy)
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Rock, Cool daddy, honky tonk Cool Daddy)
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Rock, rock, rock, rock)

Rock, rock, rock, rock

When she walks by the men all stand engrossed
(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)
When she passes by the flashlights turn to toast
(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)
That girl's got a lot of what they call the most
(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)

Well, the girl can't help it if she was born to please
(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)
And if she's got a figure made to squeeze
(She can't help it, the girl can't help it)
Now won't you kindly be aware (Ahaha, ahaha)

Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Cool daddy, cool, ahaha)
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Cool daddy, cool)
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Ahaha, ahaha)

Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Cool daddy, ahaha)
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Cool daddy)
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool
Daddy Cool, Daddy Cool (Ahaha, ahaha)
Ahaha
