Daddy I feel that I must talk to you Are you sure this is what you want to do? Now it's not for us kids that I beg you to stay Please don't just walk out on Mama this way She's mothered your children, she's spent her whole life Trying to be a good mother and wife And she stood by you when the rest let you down Daddy, how can you walk out on her now?
I'm your oldest daughter, my age twenty-three Your new love is even younger than me She's young, she's pretty, her hands soft as dew While Mama's are withered from working for you
Mom's not young any more like your new love But your new love won't love you like my mama does You've taken her best years, so don't leave her now Please, Daddy say that you won't let her down

Meghan Trainor and her producer Kevin Kadish originally wrote "All About That Bass" for another artist to record. However, after Epic Records boss LA Reid heard Meghan play a demo of the song on a ukulele, he signed the young songwriter to his label and told her she should sing it.
