Look what Daddy bought her for her birthday
Well, it's idling beside me at the light
Sweet sixteen is looking in her rear-view mirror
Making sure her hair-do looks alright

Well, it's my favorite form of stoplight entertainment
Watch what happens when I try to make her smile
You can tell just by the way that she accelerates
She's trying to tell me that I'm not her style

'Cause she's got daddy's money
Daddy's money
Daddy's money holds her hand
She ain't got no backbone
But she's strong enough to stand
'Cause daddy's money holds her hand

Well, then I coast up right beside her at the next light
I can't help if there's amusement on my face
Because her car must cost twenty times what mine does
Now she's got to run the light to put me in my place

'Cause she's got daddy's money
Daddy's money
Daddy's money holds her hand
She ain't got no backbone
But she's strong enough to stand
'Cause daddy's money holds her hand

Well, I really didn't mean to hurt her feelings
There's a tender heart that hides behind her wealth
Maybe if a baby gets too many shiny toys
She never finds the value in herself

She's just got daddy's money
Daddy's money
Daddy's money holds her hand
She ain't got no backbone
But she's strong enough to stand
'Cause daddy's money holds her hand

Daddy (Daddy?)
Daddy (Where's my daddy?)
Daddy
