Father in You
by Mary J. Blige



Oh
Oh
Oh oh
Can I talk to you baby?

When I was a little girl
I didn't have a father
And that's why
I'm leaning on you

When I was a baby
I didn't get a hug
From daddy that's
Why I need a hug from you

Oh it's not easy
And I thank you for putting up with me
When u don't have a daddy's love

(To say that you) to say that I'm you're little girl
(Are his little girl)
Oh why didn't you love me?
(And give you the love) I need love yeh yeh yeh
(You really deserve)
And I believe I deserve and that's why oh

That's why I need the father in you
(I need the father in you baby)
That's why I need a father in you
(Please don't hurt me please)
That's why I need a father in you
(Oh that's why I really need you)
That's why I need a father in you
(Please be true)


Whoa things got bad to the point where mummy couldn't hold us down
And that's when it hurt me so much to see her (To see her cry)
Oh don't cry mum don't cry mum
(Each and every night)
We're gonna be alright
That's what I used to say
(I said that's okay)
That I would try to take his place
(But it was too hard) it was so hard
Trying to be a man not a woman

(And that's why I need the father in you)
Id put my trust in you babe
(That's why I need a father in you)
Please don't let me down
(That's why I need a father in you)
Whoa I-I-I I need the father in you babe hold my hand
(That's why I need the father in you)

Because we never had one at home
No no no no
As a little girl
So I understand why daddy couldn't be there
Cause it's so obvious no body taught him how to be a father either
I'm not saying this to reminisce on the past
I'm just saying this to make you understand that I need a father.
And this is my problem this is why I couldn't keep no one this is why I couldn't stay alone I was so scared alone everyone needs daddy and
I don't think she understands cause she really need a father the father in you my friend

She really needed a father, the father in you
When your wife is speaking fellas pay attention yeh
Don't ignore her
Oh I really need the father in you
