Among many subsequent appearances in pop culture, the song appears in the film Show Business , the film The Jolson Story , [5] and an episode of the s cartoon DuckTales. Since the song refers to a young man wanting to find a wife like his mother, it is perhaps inevitable that some commentators have suggested, with varying degrees of seriousness, that the song's title and lyrics promote an Oedipus complex.

Verse When I was a boy my mother often said to me Get married boy and see how happy you will be I have looked all over, but no girlie can I find, Who seems to be just like the little girl I have in mind, I will have to look around until the right one I have found. Chorus I want a girl, just like the girl that married dear old Dad She was a pearl and the only girl that Daddy ever had, A good old fashioned girl with heart so true, One who loves nobody else but you, I want a girl, just like the girl that married dear old Dad.

Verse 2 By the old mill stream there sit a couple old and gray, Though years have rolled away, their hearts are young today.

Mother dear looks up at Dad with love light in her eye, He steals a kiss, a fond embrace, while ev'ning breezes sigh, They're as happy as can be, so that's the kind of love for me.
