"King Size Papa" is a 1948 novelty song by Julia Lee and her Boy Friends. The song, penned by Johnny Gomez and Paul Vance, was released on the Capitol Americana label, catalog number 40082. The song peaked at number one on the R&B charts and number fifteen on the national pop chart.[1]

In the 1990s the song was used by Pillsbury in its "Grands! biscuits" television commercials; its double entendre lyrics served to describe the atypically large size of the product.
