Drake - Papi’s Home (Lyrics)

[Intro: Drake & Montell Jordan]

I know that I hurt you


I was a child trying to be a man

To all my sons worldwide

I walked out on my only son

All my juniors

I left you in your mother's hands

I apologize for my absence, I know I left you without an annual drop

And now I'm standing right here

I don't know how I expected you to get your clout up and get your money up, but

With tears, with tears streaming from my eyes

Don't worry

See your mother raised a fine young man

Daddy's home

And I know I missed so much of your life

Turn me up (Mario)

[Verse: Drake]


Niggas know they need to stop

I'm standing at the top, that's how I know you never seen the top

Sierra Canyon parking lot lookin' like Magic City parking lot

Hear the talks when I walk by like you know it's over when we drop

Ayy, drop

Yeah, and I'm coming with the wop

Y'all niggas not poppin'

Fuck her, then she goin' shoppin'

Woah, I'm runnin' out of opps

They're runnin' out of options

Put 'em up for adoption

Sign my name on the dot

Ayy, this is not luck, baby, this no four-leaf, no horseshoe

I'm in the bank thinkin', "Poor you"

I'm in New York goin' Jon Chetrit

Supermodels and they all sexy

Lock the door to the bathroom 'cause they doin' something that is not Pepsi

I'm just pourin' up the shots

I remember that I told you I miss you, that was kinda like a mass text

I remember that I told I loved you, that was really in the past tense

I remember that I told you I get you, truth is that I get around

Mentioned havin' us a kid, '42 hit, I tend to kid around

Yeah, on Benedict with the top down

Shorties out here gettin' knocked down

City coming off a lockdown

Rap niggas doing weak features for a pop artist 'cause they popped down

Used to wanna throw the Roc up, niggas know how I rock now

[Interlude: Drake & Nicki Minaj]

You know how I'm rocking now

YM forever

Big owl, big birds forever

Don't make me go get your mama to talk to you

'Cause if he gotta get your motherfuckin' mama to talk to youYou know what I'm sayin', I'ma bring that motherfuckin' big switch out

At this point, I'ma start collectin' child support the opposite way

You gotta pay me to be my motherfuckin' son, ha-ha-ha-ha

[Outro: Drake & Montell Jordan]

Look at me

Take a real good look at me

Don't turn away

Don't you turn away like I did my son

Look me in the eyes, junior

I'm making no more promises

For real

I'm trying to find the word to say

Daddy's home

Daddy's home (Don't you know)

Daddy's home (Said, your daddy's back home)


Daddy's home (For every birthday that I missed)

Wanna be my dad again

We've got to start all over, be friends (Start right here, right now)

If you wanna be my dad again (Said, my only son)

We've got to start all over, be friends (Can you look at me?)

Yeah, baby

Yeah, baby, that's it


Something's happened to me, bro
