Dan Bull - I'm Going To Be A Daddy lyrics

[First Verse:] When she showed me the pregnancy test I felt numb I thought these things were supposed to tell the facts Howcome we got this outcome? They’re meant to be ninety-nine point nine percent accurate But now I doubt them I thought maybe one day I may want a baby But not here, not now, what, are you crazy? It’s too soon I’m too stupid to build a human nest I’m a man child hiding in the shadow of my student debts We always used protection, at least to my recollection Well, i guess this is another new regret to my collection And I won’t k** a fetus Even if it’s milimetres If I’m big enough to spill a seed, then i’m big enough to let it breathe A fellow creature, full of genes with each of us We’re big enough to bring it up and let it develop features Left speechless But my ears hurt even when I hear tiny noises How am I going to deal with each night of crying high-pitched voices? When they’re in pain there’s no way to make them say it softly I’m good with kids, as long as someone can take them off me And what’ll remain of our relationship that’s already strained? The love that’s left it’s drained and plumbed into a baby’s veins And what if this isn’t the right relationship to stay with? At this stage in the day it may just be to late to change it [Hook:] I’m going to be a daddy and I’m f**ing terrified I’m gonna throw up and there’s nowhere I can ever hide I want to stop, I want to wake up and get off this ride I’m going to be a daddy and I’m f**ing terrified [Verse 2:] My life is rather good, it’s no time for fatherhood Looking at the cats it’s hard enoguh, I can’t give up my livelihood I can’t be a role model, my own soul’s swaddled My train of thought’s like a pram rolling on old cobbles How can I change the habit of a lifetime? I’m a lazy chappy Change that? I’ve never had to change a baby’s nappy Don’t want to watch the Tweenies on the TV I like cult cla**ic black and white cinema, f** CBeebies I don’t have a choice anymore I don’t have a voice anymore Can’t make noise anymore I can’t have a bottle of brandy and a LAN party with the boys anymore The way I want to steer the ship and the way it heads is all different The game of life is flipped from single player to a co-op escort mission How can I provide enough safety and security? When it feels like it’s the whole world versus her and me? Poland versus Germany East versus West Earth eating itself while I’ve invited you to be its guest What can I bring to the table? I’m not mentally stable But they say parenting’s innate and we’re all meant to be able But what if it’s ill, what if it’s disabled, what if it’s not mine? What if it dies, what if it grows up to be a horrible little gobsh**e? What if it hates me? What if it’s not just one kid? What if it listens to this song and feels unwanted? [Hook:] I’m going to be a daddy and I’m f**ing terrified I’m gonna throw up and there’s nowhere i can ever hide I want to stop, I want to wake up and get off this ride I’m going to be a daddy and I’m f**ing terrified [Verse 3:] I hope I can be helpful during the birth Providing backup for the mother of the youngest of the children of earth When it’s eighteen, I’ll be forty-eight When it’s forty-eight, I’ll be seventy-eight And when it’s seventy-eight, I should be dead in the grave Or in my place waiting at the heavenly gate Every day a memory fades except for some strange cases Like when I’m travelling back to the past and wondering wether to change places When she showed me the pregnancy test, I felt numb But now I’ve settled down, I’ve got one message: Welcome I’m going to be a daddy I’m going to be a daddy I’m going to be a daddy I’m going to be a daddy I’m going to be a daddy I’m going to be a daddy I’m going to be a daddy I’m going to be a daddy
