Lyin' on the beach in the hot sun (hot, hot)
Yeah, I want you
If you have forgotten how to have fun (come on)
Well, I'll show you

You're rich and I'm wishin', um
You could be my Mister Yum
Delicious to the maximum
Chew you up like bubble gum
He loves me, he wants me
I think I want you, too

You can be my daddy tonight-night-night
I'm neon phosphorescent, open like a Christmas present, ah
You can be my daddy tonight-night-night
If you're seekin' heaven, then you wanna come and get it, get it?

You can be my daddy tonight-night-night
I'm neon phosphorescent, open like a Christmas present, ah
You can be my daddy tonight-night-night
If you're seekin' heaven, then you wanna come and get it, all right
Be my daddy tonight

I see you shinin' bright with your gold chain on (so bright)
Drinkin' with your crew (yeah)
I give you one look and you know that it's on (it's on)
Yes, you do

He's rich and I'm kissin' him, magical musician, oh
Drivin' through the cinema, taste like sugar cinnamon
Hey, baby (what?), come take me (what?)
I'll go anywhere with you (yeah)

You can be my daddy tonight-night-night
I'm neon phosphorescent, open like a Christmas present, ah
You can be my daddy tonight-night-night
If you're seekin' heaven, then you wanna come and get it, get it?

You can be my daddy tonight-night-night

If you're seekin' heaven, then you wanna come and get it, all right
Be my daddy tonight

(What's up? What's up?
What's up? What's up?
What's up? What's up?

Sittin' on your lap, singin' you my song
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Got a lollipop, I'll give you some
All for you, you, you, you, you, you

You can be my daddy tonight-night-night
I'm neon phosphorescent, open like a Christmas present, ah
You can be my daddy tonight-night-night
If you're seekin' heaven, then you wanna come and get it, get it?
