When I was a little girl I didn't have a father And that's why I'm leaning on you.. When I was a baby I didn't get a hug from daddy That's why I need a hug from you..
Ohh, It's not easy and I thank you for putting up with me When you don't have a daddy's love
To say that you... To say that I'm your little girl (Are his little girl, Oh why didn't you love me) And give you the love..(I need love yeah yeah yeah) You really deserve (And i believe I deserve it And that's why
[chorus] That's why I need, The father in you (I need the father in you, baby) That's why I need, (Please don't hurt me please) The father in you That's why I need (Oh that's why) The father in you (Really need you) That's why I need (Please be true) The father in you
Oh, things got bad, to the point Where mommy couldn't hold us down And that's when it hurt me so much To see her, To see her cry (Oh don't cry, momma don't cry momma) Each and every night (We're gonna be alright that's what I used to say) I said that some day That I would try to take his place But it was too hard; It was so hard trying to be a man and a woman And that's why I need the father in you
[chorus] That's why I need, (oh I needed) The father in you, (I put my trust on you) That's why I need, (Please don't let me domn) The father in you. That's why I need, The father in you (I need the father in you) That's why I need (Hold my hand) The father in you
Because we never had one at home (No No No) As a little girl... So I understand, why daddy couldn't be there Cause it's so obvious nobody taught him, how to be father to me Oh and I'm not sayin this To reminisce on the past I'm just saying this to make you understand, That I needed a father And this is my problem This is why I couldn't keep no one This is why I couldn't stay alone I was so scared alone Every woman needs a man And I don't think she understands That she really needs a father The father in you, my brother She really needed the father The father in you. When your wife is speaking fellas Pay attention,Yeah,don't ignore her No,no,no I really need the father in you.
