Lyrics

Lyrics:
First verse
Ev'rybody loves a daddy, A goody, goody, goody dad. They always look up to their daddy, Because their daddy makes them glad. I know some daddies who give babies candy by the jar, And I know daddies who give babies great big motor cars.
Chorus
How'd you like to be my daddy, Ho'd you like to hear me shout? Tata, my dada, dada, when you go out. How'd you like a little angel, Round the house to make you glad? When I say Kootchy koo, Like little babies do, I want a kiss from you; How'd you like to be my dad? How'd you like to be my daddy, Ho'd you like to hear me shout? Tata, my dada, dada, when you go out. How'd you like a little angel, Round the house to make you glad? When I say Kootchy koo, Like little babies do, I want a kiss from you; How'd you like to be my dad? How'd you like to be my dad?
Second verse
If you please your little baby, You'll never see your baby cry, And if you tease your little baby, Then you can kiss yourself goodbye. You know that babies always get what they start crying for, And I cry like a baby, only just a little more.
(Chorus)

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.

How'd You Like To Be My Daddy / music by Ted Snyder; words by Joe Young and Sam M. Lewis
