I said, young man, sit down let me tell you how it's supposed to be
How they told me

Make plans, you've got to be ready
You don't understand, right now you're a young man
You 'gon have to stand for something
Verse 3
Beautiful boy, got it from your momma
Damn she look good, you might get a sister

You can do anything in the world if you listen

Someday somebodies gonna break your heart in two
And I'll be there
Someday, you're gonna break somebodies heart
That's what we do
One day I'll be gone, but right now I'm home
No, you'll never be alone
And maybe someday you'll be talking to your own
Young man, yeah
You know your daddy's so proud of you
My little young man
Mama can't just get enough of you
My little young man, yeah
You know your daddy's so proud of you
My little young man

But you 'gon have to stand for something

Is it daddy?
Daddy!

Yeah, that's daddy
Say "I love you, daddy"
"I love you, daddy" (sweet boy)
