Hook
Hush, it’ll be ok
No tears daddy’s here to relieve the pain
My seed even though we don’t bleed the same
I’m here for you, always gonna be that way
Cuz this is how it feels to be a daddy (daddy)
This is how it feels to be a daddy (daddy)
This is how it feels to be a daddy (daddy)
This is how it feels to be a daddy (daddy)

Verse1:
They’ve been askin how this feels
It never sunk in then, now its real
I’mma take this time to be honest wit ya
I never pictured myself as a father figure
But all that changed; it doesn’t feel all that strange
Yet, I’m as scared as a rapper than ran off stage
What if I don’t act right
What if I give off the wrong impression livin this rap life
But I’ll be damned if I don’t provide the life
You deserve, more than a diamond site
I’m in the dark searchin for the guiding light
By the end of this song I’ll be shining bright
Already know I’m the strong silent type
Got me right here talking behind the mic
I just hope you understand me
Cuz without you there’d be no me; and this is how it feels to be a daddy.

Verse2:
Its like I was all you ever needed to be there
When it hurts, trust me, we care
For a talk when things don’t seem fair
I’ll come through like salt on sea air
I always said ‘when you fall you stand straight
And why Its important to eat your bran flakes
Talkin ‘bout the bacon and eggs and pancakes
Your dad makes; dap me the ‘big dog’ handshake
You make it hard to appear so
Tough when you hug me and call me your hero
Hush, I’m right here, let all of your fear go
You love me if I had a million dollars or zero
Trust, if it came to it, I’m so protective
Wouldn’t lead you with no direction
I just hope you’re happy
Cuz without you there’d be no me; and this is how it feels to be a daddy.

Hook

Verse3:
Put some change in your hand when your pockets low
And your face lights up like mop and glo
Sometimes I wish that the clock was slow
Cuz time flies by as I watch you grow
Its funny how I scold you
The same way my parents used to scold me; same stuff I told you
I just want whats best
An only child but when confronted ‘who done it?’, you still don’t confess
They label me for what I do not have
For the rest of the world, but to you I’m ‘dad’
Cute when you imitate me
Monkey-see monkey-do and its true, you do entertain me
Even though you drive me crazy
You’re always daddy and momma’s baby
All you wanted was a family
And without you there’d be no me; and this is how it feels to be a daddy.
