My Heart Belongs to Daddy
by Eartha Kitt

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
Da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da
So I want to warn you, laddie
Though I know you're perfectly swell
But my heart belongs to Daddy
'Cause my Daddy he treats it so well

There was a dame that a football game
Made long for the strong undergraddie
I never dream of making the team
'Cause my heart belongs to daddy

Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn't be bad
Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
Da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da
So I want to warn you, laddie
Though I know you're perfectly swell
That my heart belongs to Daddy
'Cause my Daddy, he treats it so well

And the tumblr babies nowadays think they invented calling your boyfriend "daddy"

With all due respect to Monroe. Marilyn Monroe's version sounds like its sung by a girl but Kitt's version sounds like its sung by a WOMAN. Each version is good on its own merits. But I have a personal preference for Kitt's version too.

You wrote the very comment I wanted to share. Thank you for doing it better than I could. As a serious M.M. fan (since seeing her in Some Like It Hot, when I was just 6 years old) it isn't easy for me to admit when someone has bested her. But, you truly nailed it. I absolutely love Eartha Kitt and her version of this song makes it less... well, creepy. (Just my opinion.) Eartha and Marilyn are my all-time favorite stars. They had more in common than people would believe. All the lusting over diamonds, furs, and a wealthy lifestyle, was just part of their "performing personas". Marilyn liked costume jewelry and books. Eartha loved gardening and being an amazing mother to her daughter. (On top of an enormous list of charitable acts which she took very seriously throughout her life.)
You probably already know all of this. Sorry to have babbled on a bit. I just love them and I truly appreciated reading your comment. Thank You and Take Care!😽💖🎶

@Ms. Barbara J. Burt Marilyn Monroe is the white Eartha Kitt you mean

Ms. Barbara J. Burt

Miss Eartha Kitt is the Black Marilyn Monroe.

Marilyn's is a very...fun and spirited version of "My Heart Belongs to Daddy", but Eartha Kitt is the true Sex Kitten. To me, she takes the whole enchilada every time! This is no exception, my heart belongs to Eartha! :)
