Song Background: Dad Hat

Hello again and welcome to another Song Background. This week’s song is called Dad Hat.The run time is 3:39 making it one of my longer songs but still feels like you want to hear more of it by the end.

The process for writing this song was so much fun. The beat was right up my alley and made writing the lyrics that much easier. The chorus kinda came to me when I wrote the title down. Writing the first verse was awesome. I wrote it in one sit down and felt like doing more but didn’t want to force the rest of the song. Each verse felt that way.

With each song I release I find at least one area I want to improve one from the last. The last song was Can We Be Friends which isn’t one of my favorites but was fun to record. So I chose to work on my message and fitting the vibe of the beat.

Lyrics:

Yeah yeah
You know the name is BFK
And I’m only here to make a way

Come and vibe with me
While I wear my dad hat
Pants skinny, a beanie with the dad hat
When it don’t match, we turn to a sad cat
We only grown kids with these bad habits too

Being a father ain’t easy you get to sacrifice
And you cant fake the nice, sadly that’s a fact of life
I take the time to teach ’em what I know
Simply stated, to reach someone you gotta sow
I got two boys, the love we share is so amazing
But the diapers I be changing they be draining
This dad bod ain’t come from being lazy
I got a 3 year old who running faster so it date me
Can you rate me, on a scale from one to ten
One’s a bad father who only likes to play pretend
On the other hands a man
Living with a bad back
But a good father cause he likes to wear his dad hat

Come and vibe with me
While I wear my dad hat
Pants skinny, a beanie with the dad hat
When it don’t match, we turn to a sad cat
We only grown kids with these bad habits too
Come and vibe with me
While I wear my dad hat
Pants skinny, a beanie with the dad hat
When it don’t match, we turn to a sad cat
We only grown kids with these bad habits too

It take 2 to make a baby, more than that to raise ’em
Plenty patience, long as you can love ’em
Then mean that statement
Can’t be hating on no other man
We move our own boat, with our own plan
Do you get what I’m saying
We learn as we go, let it show there ain’t a manual
We sharing the load caring for diamonds and gold
The true story is told, if the love was ever tangible
And if you ever felt it, tell me was it natural
Will I be the hero in they eyes
Or am I the villain in a cape and I was wearing a disguise
I avoid telling lies, that’s leading by example
And that’s why I’m glad that I get to wear my dad hat

Come and vibe with me
While I wear my dad hat
Pants skinny, a beanie with the dad hat
When it don’t match, we turn to a sad cat
We only grown kids with these bad habits too
Come and vibe with me
While I wear my dad hat
Pants skinny, a beanie with the dad hat
When it don’t match, we turn to a sad cat
We only grown kids with these bad habits too

Ya kids copy everything you do ’til you tell ’em to
But to tell the truth, they ain’t got a clue what it do
They only model the role and roads you have set
Yet we waste the chance on another bet
18 ain’t the destination but it is a marker
It’s the starter kit for rolling pain
When life hits the hardest
It’s the knockout punch if you ain’t ready
Make sure people in ya corner
Cause on late nights those tears gone start getting heavy
Then when I’m yelling, I learned they do not hear me more
I feel I’m failing and that pain hurts me to the core
I hate to bore you with how you wear my dad hat
But when I do it’s with the logo to the back

Come and vibe with me
While I wear my dad hat
Pants skinny, a beanie with the dad hat
When it don’t match, we turn to a sad cat
We only grown kids with these bad habits too
Come and vibe with me
While I wear my dad hat
Pants skinny, a beanie with the dad hat
When it don’t match, we turn to a sad cat
We only grown kids with these bad habits too
