Hey little girl,
is your daddy home?
Did he go and leave you all alone?
I got a bad desire.
I'm on fire.

Tell me now baby,
is he good to you?
Can he do to you
the things that I do?
Oh no, I can take you higher.
I'm on...

    An affair I had with a married woman. He was a trucker and so was I. I rolled down the road sweating with lust for her until our next rendezvous. I had to call first, naturally

    He has an inner conflict with himself over his sexual desires for a young ( minor) girl he knows.

    This song is a sexy ass song...and it's not about pedophedilia in my opinion...that would be taking it to the complete literal sense, which is usually not the case with music...there's always somethin much more profound in it...I mean come on, so then every time we see the word "baby" used in a song we all assume that we're talking about a child? No...

    Here's what I think:

    1. "Little Girl", I feel is his stance on her maturity level.
    2. "Daddy", obviously is the guy that she's with, not her real father because the verse that says "tell me baby is he good to you, can he do all the things that I can do...", expresses that it's the man she's with....
    3. The soakin in the sheets and all that...he desires her, he's tortured by the idea that he can't have her...it torments him to know that he's better than that guy she's with...

    It's what us guys go thru at least once in our lives when we see or know a girl that we're just completely infatuated with and never get to have...and it takes us to that level of, man, I wish I had her, ya know...its a good song...It's one of those songs you listen to when you fantasize about the girl you want, but can't have, starin up at the ceiling just wishin and hopin...

    He loves someone so much it keeps him up at night. She is the only woman he wants and she is the only one that sets him on fire, but can cool him down. It's pretty self explanatory.

    The woman in this song is in a different class than the singer.

    She is with a man that he feels is not good enough to spark her soul as he could.

    He longs for her but knows in his heart that he cant have her.

    It bothers him to the point that it affects his sleep. His soul feels cut because of the situation and his helplessness to act on it.

    It is the classic tale of a poor guy with a soul and conscience who longs for a rich girl who will never be his.
