    They tried to say that i'm
    in trouble 'cuz i don't have a dad
    that i need a man
    to teach me to be a man
    but i'm doin just fine

    I got every thing i want
    and gonna have more
    bling blinging with the best
    and about to make this score
    these lil ****** runnin round all mad
    but i'm doin just fine without a dad

    My partner named trey is angry too
    His sperm doner left without sayin bye
    he knockin out ****** and ain't afraid to shoot
    even hit a cop in the eye

    We can go all the way to the top
    we can be king pins in a couple years
    my brains and his brawn are hard to stop
    my mama ain't got no reason to shed those tears

    i'm gonna be just fine
    i'm gonna be rich in no time
    i'm movin to the front of the line
    trust me the world is gonna be mine

    they won't be hatin
    when i'm drivin that jag
    just congratulatin
    that i did it without a dad

    what lessen about life
    can a broke *** man teach me
    i got more than he got
    more money than he would ever see

    yeah i'll have plenty of clothes
    and a bunch of nice cars
    have all kinda hoes
    and party like the stars
    that's how life was supposed to go
    right up until I got put behind bars

    you see son you may think
    you can do it on your by yourself
    you may think you have a good plan
    you may think you don't need my help
    you may think you can be you own man

    but even though i'm in here
    you're going where i've already been
    i've felt all of those fears
    and i can be your father and your friend

    you are blessed son
    and growin up fast
    but you don't have to guess son
    because the reason i'm in this hell
    is because i tried to conquer the world
    without a dad

    You are fine, my brotha, and you will continue to be fine if you realise that u have the ultimate dad..that never slumbers nor sleeps and hears your thoughts and desires before u even know it!!! I know so, because, I don't have a dad....and I don't have a mom.... but I'm doing fine...day by day...

    lo'
