Subject: Lyr Req: Please be like your daddy son

I've exhausted all my outlets and now I need help.I'm not postive of the title.I believe I learned this back in the 1940s and I've always thought that Eddy Arnold done this song.This is what I remember.
Please be like your daddy son
Your dad was kind and true
There's nothing that I ask of you
Your daddy wouldn't do
Your eyes are blue
Just like your Dads
Your hair is curly too
So make a man for mother son
Like your dad would have you do

I've always believed there were a couple of more verses and the words I've posted are fairly close to the way the tune goes.

Thanks Rusticfor the web page but I didn't find anything in his list of songs so I guess there is some other artist that done this song

According to this Decca discography, the title is BE JUST LIKE YOUR DADDY, and Stuart Hamblen recorded it in 1935.

Jim that is quite a site to bad it doesn't have some midis or lyrics but it does have a lot of info on older songs and it does bring back memories.I still believe that regardless whether the title is Please be like your daddy son or Be just like your daddy,we do know that Stuart Hamblen recorded it and it should be somewhere on the internet,so I'll keep my fingers crossed and hopefully someone will come up with the correct lyrics.Louie Roy

Subject: Lyr Add: JUST LIKE YOUR DADDY (from Jeanne Pruett)
From: Jim Dixon

OK, this isn't the song you want, but I ran across it while searching for Hamblen's song, and it's an interesting specimen in its own right, so I might as well post it here.

The Record Lady's All-Time Country Favorites has this song on Requests Page Seven. The sound quality is rather poor, so I'm uncertain about some of the words.

JUST LIKE YOUR DADDY
John Adrian
As sung by Jeanne Pruett, 1974

Grow up big and strong* just like your daddy.
You've got his pretty blue eyes and his winning smile.
Soon you'll be big and strong just like your daddy.
Everybody always said you're your daddy's child.

Come hold your mama's hand just like your daddy.
I think I heard a noise outside and it scares me so.
You can protect your mom just like your daddy
Used to do a long, long time ago.

CHORUS: Soon you'll fall in love just like your daddy.
A first-class love and a second-hand home just gets (?) like your daddy and me.
Look in your mama's eyes. Listen closely to me.
Don't leave her all alone.
She's all you'll ever own.
Don't walk out on your love just like your daddy.

You've got an easy style just like your daddy.
It's gonna be hard for the women to let you be.
Don't let it turn your head just like your daddy
Used to do when he turned away from me.

Come hug your mama goodnight just like your daddy.
Don't forget to brush your teeth and say your prayers.
I'll kiss you once for me and once like your daddy.
You can do more than wish that your daddy was here. CHORUS

[The first time I heard "Grow up big and strong", I thought it was "Go and pick and strum"!

[Frankly, I find this song's incestuous overtones make it rather creepy.]

The lines you were looking for were
"first clas love and a second class home,
just kids like your daddy and me"

And
"I'll kiss you once for me and once like your daddy,
used to do lord I wish that your daddy was here."

I hope this helps

SmartChoiceMusic.com is offering an album by Stuart Hamblin called "Prettiest Girl in Town, Vol. 2" which contains BE JUST LIKE YOUR DADDY. Unfortunately, it's a British company, and perhaps their albums are available only in the UK.

The University of North Texas library has a copy of the sheet music of PLEASE BE LIKE YOUR DADDY, from 1942.

The Southern Folklife Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has a copy of a songbook called "Stuart Hamblen and His Lucky Stars, Deluxe Edition" (M.M. Cole Publishing Co. Chicago, Ill. 1942) which contains PLEASE BE LIKE YOUR DADDY.

WorldCat might help you find a copy at another library.

Some libraries will copy something for you and mail it to you, for a fee.

Don't have the lyrics but 10 years on the above cd is apparently still available from the people who compiled it - the British Archive of Country Music. They sell to the US etc. not just Britain, and seeing they're a Country music archive, if anyone's still looking you could try contacting them first to see if it's the right song with this title/if they can provide the lyrics.
