  • I remember
    When you used to take me on a bike ride every day on the Bayou (you remember that?)
    (We were inseparable)
    And I remember when you could do no wrong
    You'd come home from work
    And I jumped in your arms when I saw you (I was so excited)
    I was so happy (so happy to see you, so happy to see you)
    To see you

    Because you loved me I overcome, yeah
    And I'm so proud of what you've become, yeah
    You've given me such security
    No matter what mistakes I make you're there for me
    You cure my disappointments and you heal my pain
    You understood my biz and you protected me
    I treasure every irreplaceable memory and that's why

    I want
    My unborn son
    To be like my daddy
    I want my husband to be like my daddy
    There is no one else like my daddy
    And I thank you (thank you)
    For lovin' me (daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy)
    (Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy) me (lovin' me)
    (Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy) (lovin' me)
    (Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy)

    I still remember the expression on your face
    When you found out I'd been on a date and had a boyfriend, oh
    (My first boyfriend, you should've seen your face)
    I still remember I called you cryin' 'cause of my tattoo
    Could have said, "Beyoncé, I told ya so"
    Instead you said you'd get one too, hey
    (You and my momma said y'all'd get one just like mine)
    Words can't express my boundless gratitude for you
    I appreciate what you do, oh whoa
    You've given me such security
    No matter what mistakes I know you're there for me
    You cure my disappointments and you'll heal my pain
    You understood by biz and you protected me
    I treasure every extraordinary memory, that's why

    My unborn son
    To be like my daddy
    I want my husband to be like my daddy
    There is no one else like my daddy
    And I thank you (thank you) for loving me

    Even if my man broke my heart today
    No matter how much pain I'm in I would be okay, oh
    'Cause I got a man in my life that can't be replaced
    Father's love is unconditional, it won't go away
    And I know I'm lucky (lucky)
    Know it ain't easy (it ain't easy)
    Men who take care of their responsibilities
    Love is overwhelming
    All that you did pay for me, ah
    Can't stop my tears from falling
    I love you so much, daddy

    Thank you (my unborn son to be like my daddy)
    You've done so much for me (want my husband to be like my daddy)
    I love you, daddy

    I get so emotional, daddy (there is no one else like my daddy)
    Every time I think of you
    I get so emotional, daddy (and I thank you)
    Every time I think of you
    There is no one else like my daddy
    No one else will replace my daddy (there is no one else like my daddy)
