Papa Don't Preach by Madonna is featured in Hairography, the eleventh episode of Season One. It is sung by Quinn with Puck backing her up on guitar, only to feature the line "I've made up my mind, I'm keeping my baby".

While babysitting Kendra's triplets with Puck, Quinn decides to perform this song as a way to calm the triplets down after their unruly behavior goes as far as tying up Puck and Quinn. Quinn also performed many of the dance moves Madonna did in the original video.


Papa, I know you're going to be upset
Cause I was always your little girl
But you should know by now
I'm not a baby

You always taught me
Right from wrong
I need your help
Daddy, please be strong
I may be young at heart
But I know what I'm saying

The one you
Warned me all about
The one you said
I could do without
We're in an awful mess
And I don't mean maybe

Papa, don't preach.
I'm in trouble deep
Papa, don't preach.
I've been losing sleep
But I made up my mind.
I'm keeping my baby
Ooh, I'm gonna keep my baby mmmm
