"Mockingbird," originally by Eminem

[Verse 1]
Haley I know you miss your mom,
And I know you miss your dad,
When I'm gone, but I'm trynna give you the life that i never had
I can see your sad,
Even when you smile, even when u laugh ,
I can see it in your eyes, deep inside you wanna cry,
Cause you're scared, I ain't there?
Daddy's with you in your prayers
No more cyrin', wipe them tears
Daddy's here, no more nightmares
We gon' pull together through it, we gon' do it
Laney uncles 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 confusin' you
Daddy's always on the move, mama'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 back fires on me
All the things growin' 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 bein' 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 its just somethin' we have no control over,
And that's what destiny is
Well 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

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 mamas gon' be alright

[Verse 2]
Heh, 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 cryin'
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 gettin' broken into and robbed,
Or shot up on the block
And your mom, was savin' money for you in a jar
Trynna start a piggy bank for you so u 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 you mama's heart
And it seemed like everything was just startin' to fall apart
Mom and dad was arguin' a lot
So mama moved back onto Chalmers in a flat, one bedroom apartment
And dad moved back to the other side of 8 mile of novara
And that's when daddy went to California with his CD
And met Dr. Dre, then flew u and mama out to see me
But daddy had to work, you and mama had to leave me
Then u started seein' daddy on the TV
And mama didn't like it
And u and Laney were too young to understand it
Pappa was a rollin' stone, mama developed a habit
And it all happened to 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 sittin' in this empty house
Just reminiscing, lookin' at your baby pictures,
it just trips me out
To see how much u both have grown,
it's almost like you're sisters now
Wow, I guess you pretty much are and daddy's still here
Laney 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 mamas only gone for the moment...


And if you ask me to, daddy's gonna buy you a Mocking bird
I'ma give u the world
I'ma buy a diamond ring for you, I'ma sing for you
I'll do anything for you, to see you smile
And if that mocking bird don't sing
And that ring don't shine
I'ma break that birdies neck
I'll go back to the jeweler, who sold it to ya
And make him eat every karat, don't fuck with dat
