One day little Billy said ?momma, where?s my dad??

Fightin? back the tears she said ?I knew one day you?d ask?

She walked him down the hallway, to a closet with a safe

Said ?I think you?ll find the answer right here, in these 18 video tapes?

See the doctors told him he?d be gone before you were born

And it broke his heart to know he?d never hold you in his arms

Determined not to let you grow up learnin from mistakes

He put everything he thought you?d need to know, on 18 video tapes


Like here?s the way you hold a bat,

Be sure to keep that shoulder back

And when you cast that rod and reel,

Well use your wrist its in the field,

Or when you learn to ride your bike

I?ll tell you now that you won?t like those training wheels

But your momma will


That day honest momma showed him one of them a year

Sometimes it was almost like his dad was really there

Sometimes he laughed, sometimes he cried

But he always walked away

Havin? learned another lesson from his dad, in those 18 video tapes


Like when you shave don?t get too close

Lose the hair but leave the nose

And when your momma gives you my old truck

Don?t drive too fast or ride the clutch

Don?t listen to your buddies son

when the conversation comes to the birds and bees

Just go to tape 18


Well I just need to tell you one more thing before I go

It won't be long you?ll have a little baby of your own

Be there for ?em every day, no matter what it takes

Even you have to put your love on 18 video tapes
