Mockingbird

Yeah
I know sometimes
things might 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'chu crying about?
You got me…
 
Hailie, I know you miss your mom
And I know you miss
your dad when I'm gone
But I'm trying to give you
the life that I never had
I can see you're 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 crying 
Wipe them tears
Daddy's here
No more nightmares
We gonna pull together through it
We gon' do it
Alaina 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
Looking 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, growing up
As daddy that he had to see
Daddy don't want you to see 
But you see just as
much as he did
That we did not plan
it to be this way
You're 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
when was teenagers
But then of coarse
Everything always
happens 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
 

Now hush little baby
don't you cry
Everythings gonna be alright
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 feel how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, 
pretty baby, but I promise,
Mama's gonna be alright
 

It's funny
I remember back one year
when daddy had no money
Mommy wrapped the Christamas presents up
and stuck them under the tree 
and said some of them were from me
Cos daddy couldn't buy ‘em
I'll never forget that Christmas
I sat up the whole night cryin'
Cuz daddy felt like a bum
See dadday 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 trying
to start a piggy bank for you
So you can 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 mama's heart
And it seemed like everything
was just starting to fall apart
Mom and dads 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 Novarra
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 Laini were
too young to understand it
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 first hand
Cuz all I ever wanted to do
was just make you proud
Now I'm sittin' in this
empty house, just reminiscin'
Looking at your baby
pictures it just trips me out
To see how much you both have grown
It's almost like your sisters now
Wow, I guess you pretty much are
And daddy's still here
Laini 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
 

Now hush little baby
don't you cry
Everythings gonna be alright
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 feel how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, 
pretty baby, but I promise,
Mama's gonna be alright
 

And if you ask me to, daddy's
gonna buy you a mocking bird 
I'ma give you the world
I'ma buy a diamond ring for you
I'ma sing for you, 
I'll do anything
for you to see you smile
And if the mockingbird
don't sing and the ring don't shine
I'ma break that birdy's neck
I'll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
And make him eat every karat
Don't fuck wit dad
haha

…Questo suo lato è sempre purtroppo frainteso dalle poppanti isteriche, che con il loro fanatismo non riescono a vedere "oltre"…
Se vogliono la canzoncina sdolcinata ascoltassero i Blue o la paVEsini…
A me questa piace, e anche tanto e spero non venga sputtanata come Hailie's song…
