"Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now" is a song from the 2002 Hairspray musical. The song was sung by Tracy, Amber, and Penny whilst the girls were arguing with their mothers. This was the only song not to be heard in the 2007 film; however, it is heard in the end credits, being sung by Ricki Lake, Marissa Jaret Winokur, and Nikki Blonsky, the actresses who played Tracy in all three "Hairspray" variations.
