    My role is small in this celebration
    My opinion not requested in any preparation
    My assistance hardly needed for putting up decorations
    Soon will be my baby's high school graduation

    I stand on the sidelines
    Observing as I do
    Playing the role
    A dad without a clue

    Get this
    Get that
    Go get the other
    Put this over there
    Hang this up
    You see, I'm a tall brother

    Grandmother, Mother, Daughter
    Bloodline running thin
    With each little spat
    Female tension running high
    Sometime my baby gets upset
    I can see it in her eye

    Alot going on right now
    In her 18 year old mind
    The big day almost here
    Down her pretty black face
    Runs a single tear

    At this point in the madness
    She just comes to me
    That's when I give her a great big hug
    Yeah, that's my role
    Just providing a Daddy's love

    BE

    And that is plenty!

    And what you give is good and plenty...
    Think of all the 18 year old black girls that didn't get any.
    No daddy love.
    No graduation to speak of.
    No one making a fuss.
    Nothing but a heart and life of disgust!
    Trust my brother what you do is enough.
    CONGRATS TO THE GRADUATE
    BLESSINGS ON YOU ALL!
