    This is a song that celebrates daddies. It is a song that I am releasing around Father's Day '11. Use this opportunity to also visit www.allprodad.com. All of us daddies out there need the help and support of each other and we should be celebrated for the tremendous role we play in raising our kids.

    Verse 1
    -------
    Everybody's looking for a hero
    Somebody you know saving the day is their steelo
    Someone who wears an 'S' on their chest
    A real Superman who never settles for less
    We see these people on the T.V.
    They rap and sing, they run and jump man they got heat
    We put their posters on the wall
    And love 'em even though we don't know 'em at all
    We look at all of that money
    The fame and the fortune and all of those honey's
    We wish that we could have what they have
    Overlooking that we have all we need in our dad
    But the kind of man your dad is
    He understands superficial fascinations as a kid
    So he buys you a jersey with another man's name
    And he buys you the tickets to another man's game
    You wanna be like Mike
    Tongue wagging and floating through the air would be tight
    An athlete speaks and yep it sits cool with u
    Pops says the same thing and yet you think he's a fool
    Your dad is dropping all that wisdom
    While people you look up to are going to prison
    We'd rather give props to so many other people
    Without knowing if they have respect for the steeple
    Who is it sitting in the stands
    Screaming go ahead son as the ball meets your hands
    He always says you're the man
    Telling you you'll far exceed him if you just have a plan
    Sometimes he has a stern hand
    And his words cut sharper than a knife ever can
    But your dad's the man with the master plan
    And there's no greater man so let's give him a hand

    Hook
    -----
    This is for all of you daddies
    North to the South New York to Cali
    If you're holding it down
    And your kids know who you are because you're always around
    You don't mind coming in last
    You see that as the role of a dad
    Yea this is for you
    We celebrate the men who stand up for truth
    You're not a fad
    You're an All-Pro Dad!!!

    Verse 2
    -------
    I'm saluting all the poppas
    I know a mother's love but this song is for the fathers
    For taking little Johnny to the field
    And playing catch wit 'em when nobody else will
    You worked hard all day and rode the bus home
    But you still took time to teach 'em right and wrong
    When tragedy struck and hit your fam like a stone
    Daddy was the one that everybody else could lean on
    You helped your kids do good in school
    Doing your very best was the main house rule
    Your own education level didn't matter
    You still servin' wisdom and you serve it on a platter
    You talked to them 'bout the meaning of life
    And you could always be found on your knees at night
    You're not perfect, naw, you don't always do right
    But you tried so hard to be that salt and light yea
    Father's Day comes once a year
    But everyday being your child I hope they hold it dear
    I hope they realize the gift
    When the chips were down and it was rough you didn't dip
    You're a pillar of stone
    They can try but they'll never ever make another clone
    Your kids will realize it if not now when their grown
    They rode life on your back and you just told 'em get on
    You provide invisible protection
    If it's not right for your fam it sees rejection
    Fighting for your kids unseen
    Against the darkness in the world you're like Muhammad Ali
    You always drive 'em where they need to go
    You pay the bills so they can sit and watch their favorite show
    They may not say it but I know that their glad
    To have a man like you as their All-Pro Dad
