My Mamma, always showed me that she cared
My Papa love me too, but he was always never there
My sisters, were busy putting flowers in there hair
My brothers were in the war, fightin’ Charlie over there

Growin’ up, I never had too many friends
My music, was a means to my end.
My family, told me it would be OK
To make my music, each and every single day

Family Life

Getting’ older life turning on a dime
My first band never really had the time
They were my brothers, but they didn’t have the drive
3 long years and I had to say goodbye

Jump forward to 96, many bands are in my past
The future, and the funk is here at last
Can’t tell you what this music means to me
My new family, and I spell t KDB

Family Life

I try to be the best man I can be
Husband and father too
Provide a home, that’s full of love
I do all that I can do

My daddy, always treated me so good
He gave us all the things, that a good daddy should
Now I’m trying to be all he was to me
Fulfilling my parental destiny
