  • (Walk like him)
    (Walk like him)
    Mm-yeah

    Mama says I walk like him, feet at 10 and 2
    My uncle says I talk like him, I get my point across the room
    And if he were here today, he'd just laugh out loud when they say
    'Cause he knew that his boy was just like him

    So I cuss a little bit when the game's on TV
    Got Eagles in the truck on repeat
    Know how to use a hammer and nail
    Don't whine about my problems
    He was better at puttin' that bottle down
    But I spend every day tryna make him proud
    If I said that I didn't, I'd be lying
    But I'm tryin' to walk like him

    Papa said I'm stubborn like him, and I guess that he would know
    My daddy got it from him, and I make three in a row
    Well, ain't that how it goes, a bloodline keeping him alive
    One day, my babies'll look at me and see what he was like

    So I cuss a little bit when the game's on TV
    Got Eagles in the truck on repeat
    Know how to use a hammer and nail
    Don't whine about my problems
    He was better at puttin' that bottle down
    But I spend every day tryna make him proud
    If I said that I didn't, I'd be lying
    But I'm tryin' to walk like him
    Oh, walk like him (walk like him)
    Oh

    I remember when he sat me down and told me he was sick
    Said, "Son, don't worry 'bout me, you've got your life to live"
    He started talking to God again
    It'd been a while, like old friends
    And when the time came for him, I know where he went

    So I pray a little more today than I used to
    Call mama every day like he said to
    Know how to treat a woman right
    And how to live a life
    He was better at puttin' that bottle down
    But I spend every day tryna make him proud
    If I said that I didn't, I'd be lying
    But I'll keep tryin' to walk like him
    Oh, walk like him, yeah
