Papa'z Song

Daddy's home

Heh, so?
You say that like that means somethin' to me
You've been gone a mighty long motherfuckin' time
For you to be comin' home talkin' that "daddy's home" shit (nigga)
We been gettin' along fine just without you
Me, my brother, and my mother 
So if you don't mind, you can step the FUCK off, POPS.. FUCK YOU!

Had to play catch by myself, what a sorry sight
A pitiful plight, so I pray for a starry night
 Please send me a pops before puberty
The things I wouldn't do to see a piece of family unity
Moms always work, I barely see her
I'm startin' to get worried without a pops I'll grow to be her
It's a wonder they don't understand kids today 
So when I pray, I pray I'll never grow to be that way
And I hope that he answers me
I heard God don't like ugly well take a look at my family 
A different father every weekend
 Before we get to meet him they break up before the week ends
I'm gettin' sick of all the friendships 
As soon as we kick it he done split and the whole shit ends quick 
How can I be a man if there's no role model?
Strivin' to save my soul I stay cold drinkin' a forty bottle
I'm so sorry 

I'm so sorry 
For all this time (I'm so sorry)
For all this time
For all this time (don't lie)
I'm so sorry 
For all this time (so, sorry)
For all this time
For all this time, so sorry baby!

Moms had to entertain many men;
Didn't wanna do it but it's time to pay the rent again.
I'm gettin' a bit older and I'm startin' to be a bother;
Moms can't stand me cause I'm lookin' like my father  Should I stay or run away? Tell me the answer 
Moms ignores me and avoids me like cancer 
Grow up rough and it's hard to understand stuff
Moms was tough cause his papa wasn't man enough;
Couldn't stand up to his own responsibilities  Instead of takin' care of me, he'd rather live lavishly 
That's why I'll never be a father;
 Unless you got the time it's a crime; don't even bother 
(That's when I started hatin' the phony smiles
Said I was an only child)
Look at mama's lonely smile!
It's hard for a son to see his mother cry
She only loves you, but has to fuck with these other guys
I'm so sorry 

I'm so sorry 
For all this time (I'm so sorry)
For all this time
For all this time (don't lie)
I'm so sorry 
For all this time (so, sorry)
For all this time
For all this time, so sorry baby!

Man child in the promised land couldn't afford many heroes 
Moms was the only one there my pops was a no-show
And ohh, I guess ya didn't know
That I would grow to be so strong 
Lookin' kinda pale, was it the ale or pops was wrong?
 Where was the money that you said, you would send me
 Talked on the phone and you sounded so friendly 
Ask about school and my welfare 
But it's clear, you ain't sincere hey who the hell cares 
You think I'm blind but this time I see you comin', Jack!
You grabbed your coat, left us broke, now ain't no runnin' back
Ask about my moms like you loved her from the start 
Left her in the dark, she fell apart from a broken heart
So don't even start with that "Born to be a father" shit
Don't even bother with your dollars I don't need it
I'll bury moms like you left me: all alone, G
Now that I finally found you, stay the fuck away from me
You're so sorry 

I'm so sorry 
For all this time (I'm so sorry)
For all this time
For all this time (don't lie)
I'm so sorry 
For all this time (so, sorry)
For all this time
For all this time, so sorry baby!

I never meant to leave but I was wanted  Crossed too many people every house I'd touch was haunted 
Had to watch the strangers every brother was a danger;
If I wanted to to keep you breathin', had to be out of range-a
Had to move on, done lost my name and picked a number 
Made me watch my back I had no happy home to run to
 Maybe it's my fault for being a father livin' fast
But livin' slow, mean half the dough, and you won't get no ass
 Hindsight shows me it was wrong all along 
I wanted to make some dough so you would grow to be so strong 
It took a little longer than I thought 
I slipped, got caught, and sent to jail by the courts 
Now I'm doin time and I wish you'd understand 
All I ever wanted was for you to be a man
And grow to be the titan you was meant to be
Keep the war fightin' by the writings that you sent to me
I'm so sorry 

I'm so sorry 
For all this time (I'm so sorry)
For all this time
For all this time (don't lie)
I'm so sorry 
For all this time (so, sorry)
For all this time
For all this time, so sorry baby!
