Can't right now, I'll give you a shout
Later bro. You got stuff to do
Check you out when you get through
Wait, maybe you could give me a hand
I'm looking for stuff for my old man
Hey gimme a break, that's all jive
You don't even know if your dad's alive
And even before he went away
You never got him nothing for Father's Day
Chill out bro, I ain't talking 'bout him
Whatcha thinkin', do I look that dim?
I'm talkin' 'bout my Holy Dad
Who loves me even when I'm bad
I didn't believe, but he was watchin' my back
When I was dealing drugs and smokin' crack
Now I'm straight and got some bling
But what can I get someone who's got everything?
Man, don't you ever read His Word?
Let me remind you, I know you've heard
Our Father tells us what he wants done
In Mark 12, 30 and 31
Love the Lord with all your heart
You can't buy that at the Super Wal Mart
And love your neighbor as yourself
You can't pull that off the appliance shelf
Check it out dude, you're getting close
What was that part about sheep and goats?
I think it was in Matthew 25
Time to make that scripture come alive!
We'll hit up the stores for food and drinks
Some jeans and shirts, but it ain't what you think
We can't shop for Him, if we want to please
We gotta give something to the least of these
Hop in the car, we'll head for skid row
We'll show em that somebody loves em, bro
Once we got started, it wasn't that hard
To make a really awesome Father's Day card
We praise You Dad up there on Your throne!
For the greatest ever single parent home.
