Papa Don't Preach

Lyricist: Brian Elliot,Madonna    Composer: Madonna, Stephen BrayHe says that he's going to marry me


Papa I know you're going to be upset
'Cause I was always your little girl
But 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, oh
I'm gonna keep my baby, mmm...


He 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, oh
I'm gonna keep my baby, mmm...


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, so 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, oh
I'm gonna keep my baby, mmm...


Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep
Papa don't preach, I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach, I've been losing sleep


Oh, I'm gonna keep my baby, ooh
Don't you stop loving me daddy
I know, I'm keeping my baby
