Daddy Thing (Album Version)

Daddy Thing (Album Version)

Jaheim

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 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 could'nt 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 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 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
Xbox's little dresses
Tennis braclets
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 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 did the daddy thing?
When her father wasn't there
Who did the daddy thing?
