Donald "Childish Gambinio" Glover became a father for the first time in 2016. In this ode to his newborn child, the actor sings of his love for his son and his broken relationship with the child's mother.
I've never lied about us We were never supposed to be together When you see me with some other one And they know your son Oh, please don't take him away You said you won't but you will
Glover is worried that his broken relationship with his girlfriend will result in her taking his baby boy away. He admits elsewhere on the track to having stayed with her for his son's sake.
The drums and keyboards on the song pay tribute to Sly and The Family Stone's There's a Riot Goin' On track "Just Like a Baby."
