    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).
