Marilyn Monroe – My heart belongs to Daddy

This song is perfect if you are a dad who loves your daughter (and vice versa) and who doesn’t want little boys to play with her ;o) My Heart Belongs to Daddy is a song written by Cole Porter, for the 1938 musical Leave It to Me . It was fantastically sang by Marilyn Monroe in the movie Let’s Make Love in 1960 (starring Yves Montand).

So, why will your daughter love this song ? Because the lyrics are so cute ! You can hear “Mon coeur est a papa“, “my heart belongs to daddy” or “my heart belongs to daddy, so I simply couldn’t be bad“. Isn’t that cute ? And once again, that’s a great introduction to jazz (you can tell your daughter “you see, that’s jazz, isn’t that cool ?”, let’s be a bit positive with jazz, it deserves it).

Lyrics

My name is Lolita and I’m not supposed to play..with boys! What? Mon coeur est a papa. You know, le proprietaire. No!

While tearing off a game of golf,
I may make a play for the caddy,
But when I do, I don’t follow through
‘Cause my heart belongs to daddy.
If I invite a boy some night to dine on my fine finnan haddie,
I just adore his asking for more, but,
My heart belongs to daddy.

Yes, my heart belongs to daddy, so I simply couldn’t be bad.
Yes my heart belongs to daddy.
So I want to warn you laddie,
Though I know that you’re perfectly swell,
That my heart belongs to daddy cause my daddy he treats it so..

While tearing off a game of golf,
I may make a play for the caddy,
But when I do, I don’t follow through,ooh, daddy.
If I invite a boy some night to cook up a fine enchilada,
Though spanish rice is all very nice..

My heart belongs to my daddy so I simply couldn’t be bad.
So, I want to warn you laddie,
though I know that you’re perfectly swell,
that my heart belongs to my daddy
‘Cause my daddy he treats it..so..
That little old man he just treats it so good!
