The Stylistics

The Stylistics are a soul music vocal group, and were one of the best-known Philadelphia soul groups of the 1970s. They formed in 1968, and were composed of lead Russell Thompkins, Jr., Herb Murrell, Airrion Love, James Smith, and James Dunn. All of their US hits were ballads, graced by the soaring falsetto of Russell Thompkins, Jr. and the lush productions of Thom Bell, which helped make the Stylistics one of the most successful soul groups of the first half of the 1970s." During the early 1970s, the group had twelve consecutive U.S. R&B top ten hits, including "Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)", "You Are Everything", "Betcha by Golly, Wow", "I'm Stone in Love with You", "Break Up to Make Up", and "You Make Me Feel Brand New". more »

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
