Daddy's home
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
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 would 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
For all this time
For all this time
For all this time

I'm so sorry
For all this time
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 poppa 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
For all this time
For all this time
For all this time

I'm so sorry
For all this time
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 oh, 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 and 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 wanna be your 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

I'm so sorry
For all this time
For all this time
For all this time

I'm so sorry
For all this time
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 in danger
If I was to keep you breathin', had to be out of range

Had to move, one to lost my name and pick the 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 why don't you get some 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'll understand
All I ever wanted was for you to be a man
And grow to be the type you was meant to be
Keep the war fightin' by the writings that you sent to me

I'm so sorry
For all this time
For all this time
For all this time

I'm so sorry
For all this time
For all this time
For all this time, so sorry, baby

Sorry
For all this time
For all this time
For all this time

I am sorry
For all this time
For all this time
For all this time, so sorry, baby

Sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
