Nas – Daughters Lyrics

Check it out
I call it
Yeah, yeah

I call it “shit for niggas with daughters”
I call this “shit for niggas with daughters”
I call this “shit for niggas with daughters”
I call this “shit for niggas with daughters”

[verse 1]
I saw my daughter send a letter to some boy her age
Who locked up, first i regretted it then caught my rage, like
How could i not protect her from this awful phase?
Never tried to hide who i was, she was taught and raised like
A princess, but while i’m on stage i can’t leave her defenseless
Plus she’s seen me switching women, pops was on some pimp shit
She heard stories of her daddy thuggin’
So if her husband is a gangster can’t be mad, i love her
Never, for her i want better, homie in jail- dead that
Wait till he come home, you can see where his head’s at
Niggas got game, they be tryna live
He seen your mama crib, plus i’m sure he know who your father is
Although you real, plus a honest kid
Don’t think i’m slow, i know you probably had that chronic lit
You 17, i got a problem with it
She looked at me like i’m not the cleanest father figure but she rocking with it

This for niggas wit’ daughters
I call this, shit for niggas wit’ daughters
Yo, not sayin’ that our sons are less important

Shit for niggas wit’ daughters
I call this, shit for niggas wit’ daughters
I call it, not sayin’ that our sons are less important

[verse 2]
This morning i got a call, nearly split my wig
This social network said “nas go and get ya kid”
She’s on twitter, i know she ain’t gon post no pic
Of herself underdressed, no inappropriate shit, right
Her mother cried when she answered
Said she don’t know what got inside this child’s mind, she planted
A box of condoms on her dresser then she instagrammed it
At this point i realized i ain’t the strictest parent
I’m too loose, i’m too cool with her
Shoulda drove on time to school with her
I thought i dropped enough jewels on her
Took her from private school, so she can get a balance
To public school, they too nurture teen talents
They grow fast
One day she’s ya little princess, next day she talking boy business
What is this?
They say the coolest playas and foulest heart breakers in the world
God get’s us back, he makes us have precious little girls


[verse 3]
And i ain’t tryna mess ya thing up
But i just wanna see you dream up
I finally understand
It ain’t easy to raise a girl as a single man
Nah, the way mothers feel for they sons, how fathers feel for they daughters
When he date, he straight, chip off his own papa
When she date, we wait behind the door with the sawed off
Cuz we think no one is good enough for our daughters

  • I love this song. It really describes how when daughters get older that they get into the phase of wanting to date and have a boyfriend and that the father doesn’t want that to happen so he tries to find a way to let it happen without anything happening in the relationship but how the dad starts to think maybe I should have raised her better and more lady like just like a girl should be acting but Nas is a real good singer he makes the best songs but I know how he feels because the first time my dad found out I had a boyfriend he went a little off bound he said that whenever I do feel like going on my first date with my boyfriend I have to let him meet the boy first I was okay with that though. You know how dads are going to be with their daughters don’t mind it dads will be dads. :)
