Lyrics

RAISED IN A SMALL TOWN IN UPSTATE NEW YORK
USED TO LIKE THE WAY MY GRAND DADDY WALK
SUNG IN CHURCH ON SUNDAY
HEARD THE PREACHER TALK
ABOUT HOW LIFE WAS GONNA BE
WHEN I WAS ONLY 16
BABY BROTHER WAS A GENIUS
WHICH WAS HARD TO FIND
HE BUILT A WHOLE LOT OF INVENTIONS
WAY BEFORE THEIR TIME
SCHOOL WAS MY PASSION
CAUSE I LIKED ALL THE GIRLS
MAMA SAID SON EDUCATION WILL GET YOU FAR IN THIS WORLD
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
JUST WANTED TO HEAR
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
PLAYED BALL WTH THE FELLAS
HIS OLDER BROTHER ON THE TEAM
SAME POPS DIFFERENT MOMS
YA'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN
TRIED HIS BEST NOT TO MISS CLASS
GET TO WHERE YOUR GOING
BUT DON'T MOVE TO FAST
LONG WAY FROM HOME (DC)
TIME TO MAKE IT ON YOUR OWN
FRESHMAN WAYS SCHOOL DAZE
CAUGHT UP IN A ZONE (HU)
BUT THE SEARCH FOR HIMSELF GAVE BIRTH TO A DREAM (CHASE CHASE CHASE CHASIN')
TO GO OUT AND BE SOMEBODY
YA'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
GOT A CALL FROM HIS MOMS (MAMA TONIE)
HAD TO CALL IT QUITS
SHE SAID SON I NEED YOU TO COME HOME
'CAUSE YOUR GRANDFATHER'S SICK
A WHOLE NEW CHALLENGE ON HOW TO GET IT DONE
WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD AND BARELY 21
FACING ALL OBSTACLES TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS
HOLD DOWN THE FORT AND BE AN INSPIRATION
ONE DAY AT A TIME WHO KNOWS
WHAT TOMORROW MIGHT BRING
BACK TO THE DAYS OF BEULAH GIVEN THE CHANCE TO SING
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
MAKE IT MEAN SOMETHIN'
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO FEEL ALL ALONE
LEARN ALL THE LESSONS OF LIFE ON YOUR OWN
NOW YOUR THE FATHER SINCE HIS DAD'S BEEN GONE
TO REPEAT THE SAME KINDA THING IS DEFINITELY WRONG
BREAK THE CYCLE DO ALL THAT YOU CAN
HE HAD TO FIND A SOLUTION THAT HIS CHILDREN WOULD UNDERSTAND
TIMING IS EVERYTHING IN THIS HERE LIFE
THERE'S GONNA BE GOOD TIMES
THERE'S GONNA BE STRIFE
AND ALL THIS TIME IN THE BACK OF MY MIND I WANTED TO HEAR
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
NOW I HEAR YOUR VOICE ALL THE TIME
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
SO MANY QUESTIONS STARTING WITH WHY
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
FIND A SOLUTION BE THE COACH OF THE TEAM
HEAL ALL THE WOUNDS
YA'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN
MAKE IT MEAN SOMETHIN'
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
YOUR LIFE MAKE IT MEAN SOMETHIN'
MAKE IT MEAN SOMETHIN'
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN'
NOW I HEAR YOUR VOICE EVERY DAY
MAKE IT MEAN SOMETHIN'
MAKE IT MEAN SOMETHIN'
