Lyrics

PAPA SAY SOMETHIN
RAISED IN A SMALL TOWN IN UPSTATE NY
USED THE LIKE THE WAY HIS GRAND DADDY WALK
SUNG IN CHURCH ON SUNDAY HEARD THE PREACHER TALK
ABOUT HOW LIFE WAS GONNA BE WHEN HE WAS ONLY 16
BABY BROTHER WAS A GENIUS WHICH WAS HARD TO FIND
BUILT A WHOLE LOT OF INVENTIONS WAY BEFORE THERE TIME
SCHOOL WAS HIS PASSION AND HE LIKED ALL THE GIRLS
MAMMA SAID EDUCATION WILL GET YOU FAR IN THIS WORLD
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN-ALLTHIS TIME IN THE BACK OF HIS MIND
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN- HE JUST WANTED TO HEAR HIS FATHER ONE MORE TIME
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN- DON’T WANNA CRY
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN- SO MANY QUESTIONS STARTING WITH WHY
PLAYED BALL WITH THE FELLAS HIS OLDER BROTHER ON THE TEAM
SAME POPS DIFFERENT MOMS YALL KNOW WHAT I MEAN
TRIED HIS BEST NOT TO MISS CLASS GET TO WHERE YOUR GOING
BUT DON’T MOVE TOO FAST
LONG WAY FROM HOME TIME TO MAKE IT ON YOUR OWN
FRESHMAN WAYS SCHOOL DAZE CAUGHT UP IN THE ZONE
BUT THE SEARCH FOR HIMSELF GAVE BIRTH TO A DREAM
TO GO OUT AND BE SOMEBODY YALL KNOW WHAT I MEAN
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN-ALL THIS TIME IN THE BACK OF MY MIND
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN-I JUST WANTED TO HEAR MY FATHERS VOICE ONE MORE TIME
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN- ALL OF THE QUESTIONS THAT I WANTED TO ASK
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN
GOT A CALL FROM HIS MOMS HAD TO CALL IT QUITS
SHE SAID SON I NEED YOU TO COME HOME CAUSE YOUR GRANDFATHERS SICK
A WHOLE NEW CHALLENGE ON HOW TO GET IT DONE
WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD THE REAL 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- ALL OF THIS TIME IN THE BACK OF MY MIND I WANTED TO HEAR
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN- RELEASE ALL THE SORROW AND NO MORE FEAR
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN-MISS YOU SO BAD
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO FEEL ALL ALONE
LEARN ALL THE LESSONS OF LIFE ON YOUR OWN
NOW YOU’RE THE FATHER SINCE HIS DADS 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 THERES GONNA BE STRIFE
ALL THIS TIME IN THE BACK OF MY MIND I WANTED TO HEAR
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN- AND NOW I HEAR YOUR VOICE IN MY MIND AND IN MY HEART
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN
FIND A SOLUTION BE THE COACH OF THE TEAM
HEAL ALL THE WOUNDS YALL KNOW WHAT I MEAN
PAPA SAY SOMETHIN
