Q Strange - Father Figure lyrics

[Verse 1] Some knew my uncle Roc as a mob figure But to me he was much bigger he was like a father figure All that crooked sh** he did he never let us see Welcome me into his home givin' me family A man to me closer than my own pops My cousins ain't my cousins, they're my brothas and that lovin' won't stop Never wanted the come I would never throw ya name For personal gain, too much respect in my veins Grow to me like your own and I never got to thank ya Angry when I saw what they printed in the paper Offered to take me in when I lost my mom That's why I respect you more than any mafia don I didn't know that man that did the federal bids I knew a man who give the whole world to his kids Knew a man who was funny and he had a good heart And I'ma treasure you forever I'm a miss you uncle Roc [Chorus] In my life I never had a dad But you we're right there to guide me down the path Given me the things I woulda never had Even though it's hard now that 'cha pa**ed I still move on, try not to be sad I had you in my life I think god for that And I just hope that I can be Half the man you have to be [Verse 2] Grandpa you did a better job wit me than your son No disrespect to my father but you got the job done Taught me how to win respect that I'll never forget Working hard all your life poured blood, tears, and sweat Taught me honor and pride, and I feel hollow inside Wit out 'chu in my life I'm so sorry you died Took me from a boy to a man, and you raised me Not just for me, you did the same thing for Jamie But you were the glue that held the family together Never thought after you pa**ed that the family would sever All of our ties, and just stop communicatin' But without ya love I guess we started hatin' But we was all there around the hospital bed We were prayin' and cryin' I said goodbye then I kissed ya forehead Watchin' my hero trying to breathe on a respirator Yesterday the pain was even greater watchin' as you fade away Right before my eyes, wishin' I could save you Right until the end you were so strong and brave too Named my son after you and you were so proud Told everyone you knew about 'cha great grandchild You held him in ya arms broke a tear couldn't speak If only I knew, you woulda pa**ed the next week I woulda told you were my world thank you for your love I hope your lookin' down watchin' over us from above Because, you were the one who played the role model Without 'chu in my life my hearts filled with sorrow I guess what they say no one is promised tomorrow Its true, Gods mysterious ways would always follow You taught me life lessons I'ma carry for life Pa** it on to my seed, and try to bring him up right Without these influences I don't know where I'd be In the cemetery or in the penitentiary [Chorus] - 3X
