This is another song that took us a long time to finish. At one point we were so frustrated we went out and spent a lot of money and hired an outside mixer. This turned out to be a mistake since in the end we mixed it ourselves, but it was valuable experience nonetheless. I got to use a Lovetone Meatball on some of the bass verses which was super cool, that thing is just crazy awesome. We also used a Sansamp A LOT on this song - possibly even too much. We just liked the grit it would get and ended up sending lots and lots of stuff through it. Too much grit? Nonsense! The world runs on Sansamps...

Hardest part of the mix was getting the chorus to sit right - with all of those call-and-response Beatlesque vocals it was very tricky to get everything to play nice since the mix was super dense.

LYRICS:

I thought that all girls were the same
They'd always leave before they came
But all of that went down the drain
And I couldn't wait to learn her name

I saw her walking real slow talking on a brand new cellphone
And as soon as she said, "Hello," I knew I could not say no

I go to work while she's at school
And we've got everybody fooled
It doesn't matter what they say
It's getting better every day

I wake up in the morning and I ask, "Is life worth living?"
Then I see my baby naked making breakfast in the kitchen

And maybe (I'm satisfied)
Oh, she's my lady (she's by my side)
Oh, she makes me crazy ('cause she's so fine)
'Cause she's daddy's little girl

Some people say our love is wrong
They wonder how we carry on
But we've been happy from the start
'Cause daddy never falls apart

Sometimes I stop and wonder if I could love any other
'Til I think about my lover moving underneath these covers

And maybe (I'm satisfied)
Oh, she's my lady (she's by my side)
Oh, she makes me crazy ('cause she's so fine)
'Cause she's daddy's little girl
And maybe (I'm satisfied)
You know that she's my lady (she's by my side)
You know she makes me crazy ('cause she's so fine)
'Cause she's daddy's little girl (she's so fine)

And maybe (I'm satisfied)
Oh, she's my lady (she's by my side)
Oh, she makes me crazy ('cause she's so fine)
'Cause she's daddy's little girl
And maybe (I'm satisfied)
You could find a lady (you're satisfied)
One that makes you crazy (so satisfied)
Your daddy's little girl (she's so fine)
Daddy's little girl (she's so fine)
(She's so fine)
(She's so fine).
