About Daddy

"Daddy" is a song recorded by American singer Beyoncé for her debut studio album, Dangerously in Love (2003). It was composed by Beyoncé and Mark Batson. The song was not originally intended to be featured on the final track listing of the album. Beyoncé was able to record the song as the release date of her debut album had been postponed. "Daddy" was released to US iTunes Store as a digital single on June 3, 2003, through Columbia Records. Beyoncé explained that the song's development was motivated by the devotion and the loyalty her father/manager, Mathew Knowles has towards his family members. Many of the songs on the album examine aspects of relationships. However, "Daddy" was considered to be an element analyzing the kinship ties between a father and his offspring from a different and more powerful perspective. Music critics, who generally received the song with positive reception, commented that the song was a way for Beyoncé to pay tribute to her father.

I remember 
When you used to take me on a bike ride every day on the Bayou (you remember that?) 
(We were inseparable)
And I remember when you could do no wrong
You'd come home from work
And I jumped in your arms when I saw you (I was so excited)
I was so happy (so happy to see you, so happy to see you)
To see you 

Because you loved me I overcome, yeah 
And I'm so proud of what you've become, yeah
You've given me such security
No matter what mistakes I make you're there for me
You cure my disappointments and you heal my pain
You understood my biz and you protected me
I treasure every irreplaceable memory and that's why

I want 
My unborn son
To be like my daddy
I want my husband to be like my daddy
There is no one else like my daddy
And I thank you (thank you) 
For lovin' me (daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy)
(Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy) me (lovin' me)
(Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy) (lovin' me)
(Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy)

I still remember the expression on your face 
When you found out I'd been on a date and had a boyfriend, oh
(My first boyfriend, you should've seen your face)
I still remember I called you cryin' 'cause of my tattoo
Could have said, "Beyoncé, I told ya so"
Instead you said you'd get one too, hey
(You and my momma said y'all'd get one just like mine)
Words can't express my boundless gratitude for you
I appreciate what you do, oh whoah
You've given me such security
No matter what mistakes I know you're there for me
You cure my disappointments and you'll heal my pain
You understood by biz and you protected me
I treasure every extraordinary memory, that's why

My unborn son
To be like my daddy
I want my husband to be like my daddy
There is no one else like my daddy
And I thank you (thank you) for loving me

Even if my man broke my heart today
No matter how much pain I'm in I would be okay, oh
'Cause I got a man in my life that can't be replaced
Father's love is unconditional, it won't go away
And I know I'm lucky (lucky)
Know it ain't easy (it ain't easy)
Men who take care of their responsibilities
Love is overwhelming
All that you did pay for me, ah
Can't stop my tears from falling 
I love you so much, daddy

Thank you (my unborn son to be like my daddy)
You've done so much for me (want my husband to be like my daddy)
I love you, daddy

I get so emotional, daddy (there is no one else like my daddy)
Every time I think of you
I get so emotional, daddy (and I thank you)
Every time I think of you
There is no one else like my daddy 
No one else will replace my daddy (there is no one else like my daddy)
Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy
