Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now

This song is by Harvey Fierstein and Marissa Jaret Winokur & Ensemble and appears on the musical soundtrack Hairspray (2002).

Don't contradict me!
Don't disobey me!
Don't even think about going to that audition!

Please!?
No!
Mother!?

Stop...
Stop telling me what to do-o
Don't...
Don't treat me like a child of two-o
No...
I know that you want what's best
Please...
But mother please....give it a rest!

Stop, don't, no!
Please
Stop, don't, no!
Please
Stop, don't, no!
Please

Mama, I'm a big girl now!

Once upon a time when I was just a kid
You never let me do just what the older kids did
But lose that laundry list of what you won't allow
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now! (Oh, Tracy!)

Once upon a time I used to play with toys...
But now I'd rather play around with teenage boys
So if I get a hickey please don't, have a cow!
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now!

Ma, I gotta tell you that without a doubt
I got my best dancing lessons from yo-ou
You're the one who taught me how to twist and shout
Because you shout non-stop, and you're so twisted to-o
Ooh

Once I used to fidget cause I just sat home
But now I'm just like Gidget, and I gotta get to Rome
So say arrividicci, toodle-loo, and ciao!
'Cause mama I'm a big girl now!

Ooh
Stop, don't, no!
Please...
Mama, I'm a big girl now!
Stop, don't, no!
Please...
Mama, I'm a big girl now!
Stop, don't, no!
Please...
Mama, I'm a big girl now!

Hey, mama
Say, mama

Once upon a time I was a shy young thing
Could barely walk and talk so much as dance and sing
But let me hit that stage I wanna take my bow...
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now!

Ooh!
Once upon a time I used to dress up Ken
But now that I'm a woman I like...bigger men
And I don't need a Barbie doll to show me how
'Cause mama I'm a big girl now!

Ooh

Ma, you always taught me what was right from wrong
And now I just wanna give it a try
Mama, I'm been innocent for far to long!
So please give a push and mama watch me fly!
Watch me fly!

One day I will meet a man you won't condemn
And we will have some kids and you can torture them
But let me be a star before I take that vow!
'Cause mama, I'm a big girl now
Ooh
Mama, I'm a big girl now
Hey, ya, ya, ya, yay
Mama...I'm a big girl...
Ooh, such a big big girl

I'm a big girl...now...ooh
I'm a big girl...now...ooh

(Stop, don't, no, please)
Mama, I'm a big girl now!
