Real Good Hands Lyrics

by Gregory Porter

[Well, maybe you know why I'm here.Your daughter and I have been dating for some time now, and you've always been real, real nice to me.I look at your family pictures and I realise that I want the same thing too.I almost feel like I could call you mummy and daddy.Really that's what I'm here to talk about.]

Mama don't you worry bout your daughter
'cause you're leaving her in real good hands,
I'm a real good man.
Now the picture of this man is slowly coming into view.

Papa don't you fret and don't forget that one day you was in my shoes,
Somehow you paid your dues.
Now you're the picture of a man that I someday wanna be.

I know it's hard, watching the changes in our lives,
But I want to make your daughter my wife.

Mama don't you worry bout your daughter
'cause you're leaving her in real good hands,
I'm a real good man.
Now the picture of this love is slowly coming into view.

Papa don't you fret and don't forget that one day you was in my shoes,
Somehow you pay your dues.
Now you're the picture of the man that I someday wanna be.

I know it's hard, watching the changes in our lives,
But I want to make,
Wanna make your daughter my wife.

Mama don't you worry bout your daughter
'cause you're leaving her in real good hands,
I'm a real good man.
Now the picture of this love is surely coming into view.

Papa don't you fret and don't forget that one day you was in my shoes,
Somehow you've paid your dues.
Now you're the picture of the man that I someday wanna be.

And the picture of this man is surely coming into view.
And the picture of my wife is slowly coming into view.
And the picture of this love is surely coming into view.
Yeah the picture of this love is surely coming into view.

And I'm sure enough,
I'm sure that's exactly what I wanna do.
The picture of this man is surely coming into view.
