I dedicate this song To all the father's that's in jail That pay they child support Baby momma go to hell Cause I'm just tryin' to see my son Learn to walk. learn to run Learn to talk, learn to smile You look like your daddy now I need you to understand Things don't always go as planned Things ain't always what they seem How could an angel be so mean? Don't be fooled by what you see Cause even a blind man can look at me And see I try my very best My God I am truly blessed But no one knows how hard it is Tryin' to be a dad in a fatherless World where the women want to suck you dry Help me live, don't help me die I got places I need to be People and places I need to see I just need my kids to know Daddy'll always love 'em so And even when I'm not around I'm gonna always hold you down I'm just one phone call away You can call me every day I love my kids more than life Got 'em baptized in the name of Christ Got 'em baptized in the name of Jesus Gave my kids the Bible, told 'em to read it! I dedicate this verse to all the deadbeat moms Baby momma drama — love's supposed to be strong My momma told me after marriage then come the kids My baby momma actin' like a triflin' bitch But I can never hate her She the mother of my seed I used to love this lady And she used to love me! What happened to that wish? We started with a kiss Then we started fightin' And ended with a fist! Momma told me never put my hands on a woman But momma, she on drugs and neglectin' the children And momma, if she lies, she steals, she cheats Goin' in my pocket at night while I'm asleep Ain't no good ending if you women keep sinnin' The devil got her soul and they tryin' to take me with them But I ain't goin' nowhere, cause I am a man Through the good and the bad times, I still understand!


Father's Day represents the pain that we all go through in life, with a positive outcome at the end. Fathers stand up and fathers man up. I've been in the streets and I've been on top of the world. Through it all, I've been there for my kids.
