We're such a happy pair,
That it isn't right, no, it isn't fair
To all those other boys I gave the air

So, Daddy, let me stay out late
For tomorrow is our wedding date
Let the baby kinda celebrate
Kiss the boys goodbye

Daddy, let me wear the mink
What's the difference what the neighbors think
Let the baby linger on the brink
Oh, kiss the boys goodbye

And while I'm kissing them sentiment'ly
Keep the liberal point of view
Because I'm breaking it to them gently
That my heart belongs to you

So, Daddy, please remember this
That tomorrow starts a life of bliss
Let me show them what they're gonna miss
Kiss the boys goodbye
