Text písně Mockingbird

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 
Cuz 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 
Laney uncles crazy, aint 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 his 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 gotten 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 

Now hush little baby, don't you cry 
Everything's gonna be alright 
Stiffen that upperlip 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 fear how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby 
But i promise momma'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 
Cuz daddy couldn't buy 'em 
I'll never forget that Christmas I sat up the whole night crying 
Cuz 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 broke 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 till someone broke in and stole it 
And I know it hurt so bad it broke your momma'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 Laney were to 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 
Cuz 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 you both have grown, it's almost like you're sisters now 
Wow, 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, momma's only gone for the moment 


And if you ask me too 
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 birdies neck 
I'd go back to the jewler who sold it to ya 
And make him eat every carat don't fuck with dad (haha)
