Daddy's really comin' home, just hold tight
I just don't know how long I'll be gone this time
Just keep my picture on the wall, baby girl don't cry
'Cause I don't know when I'll be home

Ever since I was young, it's been my dream
To be successful doin' this music thing
Music is a part of my soul
I'll be sixty years old, still on the road

A grown ass man tryin' to make a livin'
A grown ass man makin' grown man decisions
Relax, I don't want you to work
Let me go out here and put in the dirt

I'll buy you a skirt, brand new Coach purse
Whenever I leave, I know it still hurts
What you want a watch, a bracelet or a chain?
How about my chest? A tattoo of your name

Man, I'm sick of all this luggage that I'm rattlin'
Trust me, I'm sick of flights and all this travelin'
Two weeks in the UK, three days in Hong Kong
It won't be long, I'll be home

Daddy's really comin' home, just hold tight
I just don't know how long I'll be gone this time
Just keep my picture on the wall, baby girl don't cry
'Cause I don't know when I'll be home

Look, your daddy has to hit the road
And I know you're gettin' old enough to notice that I'm gone
And I know I'm your best friend, the one that you look up to
Some people think I'm overprotective but I just love you

And even though I'm gone I'd rather be home with you
And no matter where I'm at your daddy is gon' miss you
You're my little man so be nice to your baby sister
And give mommy a big hug for daddy and kiss her

'Cause I know she gets tired, at times I feel guilty
I wish that I could take y'all with me
But it's crazy out here and I don't wanna expose you
To the frustrations of this rap game that I go through

And honestly I don't even do it for me
I do it so we could live life comfortably
And that's why I wear y'all proudly around my neck
And I don't care who last said it, daddy has your respect
And just know that

Daddy's really comin' home, just hold tight
I just don't know how long I'll be gone this time
Just keep my picture on the wall, baby girl don't cry
'Cause I don't know when I'll be home

Beep, beep, man, here comes the van
I wanna thank Mathew Knowles for giving me a chance
Got the advance, now it's time to hit the streets
And I'll be home in three and a half weeks

What college you goin' to? That's your decision
Just know that I'll be here to pay your tuition
The only daddy you know and that's on the real
And I been takin' care of you since Murray Ill

I moved down south, big old house
Got you two horses and a lake full of trout
And Sundays I put on my new house shoes
Lookin' at TV, watchin' the Lions lose

I miss Papi, Pug, Pepper and Patches
Man, I can't go to sleep on that brand new mattress
Even though I mix music in the band
Big Boi and Dave, see you at Lake Ann

Daddy's really comin' home, just hold tight
I just don't know how long I'll be gone this time
Just keep my picture on the wall, baby girl don't cry
'Cause I don't know when I'll be home
