Tricia Nixon with her father


The song "Tricia, Tell Your Daddy" (Steed Records # 715), performed on this single by Andy Kim in 1969, targeted President Nixon's daughter Tricia. The narrator pleaded with her to spread "love and peace", and stop the "people dying needlessly" because Nixon "is everybody's daddy now". Composed by Jeff Barry & Marty Joe Kupersmith (aka Marty Sanders) of the band Jay and The Americans, who released their own version of the song in 1970: Tricia Tell Your Daddy, arranged by Donald Fagen & Walter Becker, otherwise known as Steely Dan.

Tricia tell your daddy
On a family Sunday morning
When he comes downstairs a-yawning
From his bed

Tricia tell your daddy
When there ain't no politicians
And there ain't no competition
For his head.

Tell him he's the man Tricia
The world is in his hands Tricia
Tell him that you're not his only child
Cause he's everybody's daddy for awhile

Tricia tell your daddy
In a way he never heard now
Use the little words like love and peace

We're glad we reached the moon
But didn't it cost a lot
When some folks down here ain't got enough to eat

Tricia tell your daddy
It's gonna take more than trying
To end the people dying needlessly

Tell him he's the man Tricia
The world is in his hands Tricia
Tell him that you're not his only child
Cause he's everybody's daddy for awhile.

Tricia, tell your daddy
Tricia, tell your daddy
Tricia, tell your daddy
