[ Intro ]

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 cryin' about?
You got me.
[ Verse 1 ]

Hailie, I know [you] miss [your] mom
And I know u miss [your] dad when I'm gone
But I'm 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
Cuz you're scared
I ain't 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 gonna do it
Lainie's 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
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 backfires on me
All the things, growin' up
As daddy, daddy had to see
Daddy don't want you to see
But you see just as much as he did(see this)
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 like when we was teenagers
But then of course
Everything always happen 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 all right
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 fear how we feel inside, it may seem a little crazy
Pretty baby but I promise, Mama's gon' be alright
[ Verse two ]

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 broken into and robbed or shot up on the block
And your mom, was saving money for you in a jar
[Trin' to] 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 mamma's heart
And it seemed like everything was just starting to fall apart
Mom and dad was arguing a lot
So mama moved back on to Chalmers in a 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 Mama out to see me
But daddy had to work, you and mama had to leave me
Then you started seeing daddy on the TV
And mama didn't like it
And you and Lainnie were too young to understand it
That papa was a rolling stone, mama 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 firsthand
Cuz all I ever wanted to do was just make you proud
Now I'm sittin' in this empty house,
Just reminiscing Looking at your baby pictures it just tricks 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
Lainnie I'm talking to you too daddy's still here
I like the sound of that, yeah
It's got a ring to it don't it
Shhh, mama's only gone for the moment
[ Chorus ]

Now hush little baby don't you cry
[Every thing's] gonna be all right
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 fear how we feel inside, it may seem a little crazy
Pretty baby but I promise, mama's gon' be alright
[ End chorus]

And if you ask me to, daddy's gonna buy you a mocking bird
Ima' give you the world, Ima' buy a diamond ring for you,
Ima sing for you, I'll do anything for [you] to see u smile
And if that Mocking Bird don't sing and that ring don't shine
I'ma 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.
