I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad.
She was a pearl, and the only girl that Daddy ever had.
A good old-fashioned girl with heart so true,
One who loved nobody else but you; oh,
I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad.

Or the college version:

I want a beer just like the beer that staggered dear old Dad.
It was a beer, and the only beer that Daddy ever had.
A good old-fashioned brew with lots of foam,
It took six men to carry Daddy home, oh,
I want a beer...(etc.)

Or the old (1940's) Left Wing version:

I want a war just like the war that made my daddy rich
It was a war, and the only war for Daddy, that son of a
Wall Street Banker
A real old-fashioned war, Red White and Blue
Just the kind of war for me and you, Oh
I want a war, just like the war that made my Daddy rich.

Or a version that was in a Horror Comic of my youth:

I want a ghoul
just like the ghoul that burried dear old dad
She was a ghoul, and the only ghoul
that daddy ever had
A good old fashioned ghoul with fangs and claws
She had a scalp, but was after pa's

I want a ghoul....

I WANT A GIRL
(Just like the girl that married dear old Dad)

Words by William Dillon
Music by Harry Von Tilzer (1911)


When I was a boy, my mother often said to me,
Get married boy and see, how happy you will be.
I have looked all over, but no girlie can I find,
Who seems to be just like the little girl I have in mind.
I will have to look around until the right one I have found.


(Chorus)
I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad,
She was a pearl and the only girl that Daddy ever had.
A good old-fashioned girl with heart so true,
One who loves nobody else but you.
I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad.


By the old mill stream there sits a couple old and gray,
Though years have rolled away their hearts are young and gay.
Mother dear looks up at Dad with love light in her eye.
He steals a kiss, a fond embrace, while evening breezes sigh;

(Chorus)

I'm sure Oedipus could give some good reasons why this is not a good idea.....
