    LYRICS

    Yeah
    I know sometimes things may not always make sense to you right now
    But hey, what daddy always tell you?
    Straighten up little soldier
    Stiffen up that upper lip
    What you crying about?
    You got me.

    Hailie, I know you miss your mom, and I know you miss your dad
    When I'm gone but I'm trying to give you the life that I never had
    I can see you're sad, even when you smile, even when you laugh
    I can see it in your eyes, deep inside you want to cry
    'Cause you're scared, I ain't there?
    Daddy's with you in your prayers
    No more crying, wipe them tears
    Daddy's here, no more nightmares
    We gon' pull together through it, we gon' do it
    Lainie Uncle's crazy, ain't he?
    Yeah, but he loves you girl and you better know it
    We're all we got in this world
    When it spins, when it swirls
    When it whirls, when it twirls
    Two little beautiful girls
    Lookin' puzzled, in a daze
    I know it's confusing you
    Daddy's always on the move, mamma's always on the news
    I try to keep you sheltered from it but somehow it seems
    The harder that I try to do that, the more it backfires on me
    All the things growing up as daddy, that he had to see
    Daddy don't want you to see but you see just as much as he did
    We did not plan it to be this way, your mother and me
    But things have got so bad between us
    I don't see us ever being together ever again
    Like we used to be when we was teenagers
    But then of course everything always happens for a reason
    I guess it was never meant to be
    But it's just something we have no control over and that's what destiny is
    But no more worries, rest your head and go to sleep
    Maybe one day we'll wake up and this will all just be a dream

    [Chorus:]
    Now hush little baby, don't you cry
    Everything's gonna be alright
    Stiffen that upper lip up, little lady, I told ya
    Daddy's here to hold ya through the night
    I know mommy's not here right now and we don't know why
    We feel how we feel inside
    It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby
    But I promise mama's gon' be alright

    It's funny
    I remember back one year when daddy had no money
    Mommy wrapped the Christmas presents up
    And stuck 'em under the tree and said some of 'em were from me
    'Cause daddy couldn't buy 'em
    I'll never forget that Christmas I sat up the whole night crying
    'Cause daddy felt like a bum, see daddy had a job
    But his job was to keep the food on the table for you and mom
    And at the time every house that we lived in
    Either kept getting broken into and robbed
    Or shot up on the block and your mom was saving money for you in a jar
    Tryna start a piggy bank for you so you could go to college
    Almost had a thousand dollars 'til someone broke in and stole it
    And I know it hurt so bad it broke your mamma's heart
    And it seemed like everything was just startin' to fall apart
    Mom and dad was arguin' a lot so momma moved back
    On the Chalmers in the flat one bedroom apartment
    And dad moved back to the other side of 8 Mile on Novara
    And that's when daddy went to California with his CD and met Dr. Dre
    And flew you and momma out to see me
    But daddy had to work, you and momma had to leave me
    Then you started seeing daddy on the T.V. and momma didn't like it
    And you and Lainnie were too young to understand it
    Papa was a rollin' stone, momma developed a habit
    And it all happened too fast for either one of us to grab it
    I'm just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand
    'Cause all I ever wanted to do was just make you proud
    Now I'm sitting in this empty house, just reminiscing
    Lookin' at your baby pictures, it just trips me out
    To see how much you both have grown, it's almost like you're sisters now
    Wow, I guess you pretty much are and daddy's still here
    Lainnie I'm talkin' to you too, daddy's still here
    I like the sound of that, yeah
    It's got a ring to it don't it?
    Shh, mama's only gone for the moment

    [Chorus]

    And if you ask me to
    Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird
    I'mma give you the world
    I'mma buy a diamond ring for you
    I'mma sing for you
    I'll do anything for you to see you smile
    And if that mockingbird don't sing and that ring don't shine
    I'mma break that birdie's neck
    I'll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
    And make him eat every carat don't fuck with dad (ha ha) Show less
