Lyrics

Papa I know you're going to be upset
'Cause I was always your little girl
You should know by now
I'm not a baby

You always taught me right from wrong
I need your help daddy please be strong
I may be young at heart but I know what I'm saying

The one you warned me all about
The one you said I could do without
We're in an awful mess and I don't mean maybe
Please

Papa don't preach
I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach
I've been losing sleep
But I made up my mind
I'm keeping my baby, mmm
I'm gonna keep my baby, mmm

Says that he's going to marry me
We can raise a little family
Maybe we'll be all right
It's a sacrifice

But my friends keep telling me to give it up
Saying I'm too young
I ought to live it up
What I need right now is some good advice
Please

Papa don't preach
I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach
I've been losing sleep
But I made up my mind
I'm keeping my baby
I'm gonna keep my baby

Daddy daddy if you could only see
Just how good he's been treating me
You'd give us your blessing right now
'Cause we are in love
We are in love (In love, so)

So please

Daddy daddy
Daddy daddy

Daddy daddy if you could only see
Just how good he's been treating me
You'd give us your blessing right now
'Cause we are in love
We are in love (In love, so)
So please

Papa don't preach
Papa don't preach
Papa don't preach
Papa don't preach
Papa don't preach
Papa don't preach

Papa don't preach
I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach
I've been losing sleep
But I made up my mind
I'm keeping my baby
I'm gonna keep my baby

(Papa don't preach) Don't you stop loving me daddy
(Papa don't preach) I know I'm keeping my baby
