Way back in 1986 it was one of the biggest hits of her career.
But Madonna probably had no idea how far Papa Don't Preach would resonate - even today.
Now has learnt that Madge's fatherSilvio 'Tony' Ciccone has given her a ticking off about her penchant for younger men.
The 79-year-old former mechanic has contacted Madge to tell her it's high time she started looking for a 'suitable' partner and stopped wasting time with toyboys.
'After she split up with Jesus Luz, who's 24, Tony was hoping Madonna had got this younger man thing out of her system,' says Now's secret source.
'But then she started dating Brahim Zaibat, who's also in his twenties, almost straight away.
'Madonna's just out for a good time right now, but her dad thinks she should be taking things more seriously.'
It seems Tony's been concerned about his daughter ever since she split from husband Guy Ritchie in 2008.
'He really liked Guy and was devastated when their marriage fell apart,' adds our insider.
'He's always been very strict with his children and continues to be very involved in their lives.
'You wouldn't think she was 52 because the conversation was more like a father would have with a teenager.
'But Madonna's having the time of her life and she thinks her daddy needs to mind his own business.'
