Who, who did the daddy thing?
(When a father wasn't there?)
Who did the daddy thing?

Now usually
If there's a car seat
Up in the back seat
Or a tiny shoe swinging
From the rear view mirror

A ring on her hand
I could never be her man
But we got so close
Blew all my dough
In the Baby Gap school clothes

Pretty little angel in berets and bows
And a button nose
After a while
Started calling me daddy

I should've known that it couldn't last
Should've known that you'd take him right back
I should've took off running
When I first saw her coming
Would have never gotten so attached

When her father wasn't there to participate
He got hit with a bid upstate
When she needed diapers, wipes
Food and baby shoes
Won't you tell me who?

Who did the daddy thing?
(I gave her everything)
Who did the daddy thing?
(Nobody, nobody but me)

Now normally
I would just hit and run
But can't you see
I'm about you and your little one?

I took the jokes from all of my folks
How I got caught up playing step daddy
I got my income tax and said fuck it
And traded in your bucket

'Cause that Coupe wasn't big enough
I wasn't trying to replace him
Now that he's back around
Guess you don't need me now
You don't need me anymore

I should've known that it couldn't last
Should've known that you'd take him right back
I should've took off running
When I first saw her coming
Would have never gotten so attached

When her father wasn't there to participate
He got hit with a bid upstate
When she needed diapers, wipes
Food and baby shoes
Won't you tell me who?

Who did the daddy thing?
(I gave her everything)
Who did the daddy thing?
(Nobody but me)

On her first day of school holidays
From the very first steps she made
When she needed love, trust, patience and truth
I want you to tell me who

Who did the daddy thing?
(I gave her everything)
Who did the daddy thing?
(Nobody but me)

Longs walks with
Piggy backs and
Baby cribs and light blue Timbs
I did it all out of love
(All in the name of love)

Every Christmas
X-Box's, little dresses
Tennis bracelets
I did all, all just because
When there was no one, no one
When nobody else was there for her

When her father wasn't there to participate
He got hit with a bid upstate
When she needed diapers, wipes
Food and baby shoes
Won't you tell me who?

Who did the daddy thing?
(And you know I was the man)
Who did the daddy thing?
(A shoulder to cry on)
Someone to talk to

On her first day of school holidays
From the very first steps she made
When she needed love, trust
Patience, and truth
I won't you to tell me who

Who did the daddy thing?
(When her father wasn't there)
Who did the daddy thing?
