I know sometimes things may not always
make since to you right now
but hey what did daddy always tell
straighten up lil soldier
stiffin up that upper lip
what you cryin about?
you got me...

Verse:
Halie i know you miss your mom
and i know you miss your dad when im gone
but im tryin to give you the life that i never had
i can see your sad, even when you smile
even when you laugh i can see it in your eyes
deep inside you wanna cry cause your scared
i aint there, daddy's with you in your prayers
no more cryin, wipe them tears
daddy's here, no more nightmares
we gonna pull together through it
we gon do it, laney uncle's crazy
but he loves you baby 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 its confusin you
daddys always on the move
momma'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 growin up as daddy
that he had to see, daddy dont 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 go so bad between us
i dont 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
its just something we have no control over
and thats 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:
Hush little baby dont you cry
everything's gonna be alright
stiffin 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, momma's gon be alright

Verse 2:
its funny, i remember back when you and daddy had no money
mommy wrapped the christmas presents up and stuck em
under the tree and said some of them were from me
cause daddy couldn't buy em
ill 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 gettin broken into and robbed
or shot up on the block
and your mom was savin money for you in a jar
tryin to 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 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 charmas in a flat one bedroom apartment
and dad moved back to the other side of 8 mile on Novara
and thats when daddy went to California with his cd
and met dr. dre who flew you and momma out to see me
but daddy had to work you and momma had to leave me
then you started seein daddy on the tv
and momma didn't like it
and you and laney were to young to understand it
papa was a rolling stone, momma developed a habit
and it all happened to fast for either one of us to grab it
im 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 im sittin in this empty house
just reminiscing looking at your baby pictures it just trips me out
to see how much you both have grown, its like you're sisters now
wow, i guess you pretty much are and daddy's still here
laney, im talkin to you too, daddy's still here
i like the sound of that, yeah
its gotta ring to it dont it, shhh, momma's only gone for the moment

Chorus:
Hush little baby dont you cry
everything's gonna be alright
stiffin 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, momma's gon be alright
and if you ask me to daddys gonna buy you a mockingbird
im gon give you the world
im'a buy a diamond ring for you im'a sing for you
i'll do anything for you to see you smile
and if that mockinbird dont sing and that ring dont shine
im'a break that birdie's neck
i'll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
and make him eat every karot, dont fuck with dad.
