“Father’s Day” finds Kota the Friend in an introspective mood. He looks at fatherhood from a variety of angles: he boasts about his own parenting capabilities, he discusses the lack of parenting he received, and he examines at the history of Black fatherhood. At times, his tone is confrontational, saying he “ain’t taking shit from no bitch” and isn’t a “bank” for any woman. He also seems to address the allegations of physical and sexual abuse that have been levelled against him, saying, “I’m the scum of the planet as far as Reddit go / Sheep niggas is everywhere, but I get it, though.”

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I hit the beach
Played ball and sweated out all that bullshit under the palm trees
Today, I ain’t taking shit from no bitch
Over here, we is focused, over here, where the growth is
I’m the best dad ever, ho
Fuck what you say, my babies already said it so
I’m the scum of the planet as far as Reddit go
Sheep niggas is everywhere, but I get it, though
I give my baby all the love that I didn’t get
Ain’t a single day of living that it isn’t said
I love you for no reason, and I’m always proud
Whether you winning or losing, I’m grateful you’re my child
Say it and I say it loud
I’m not your bank, bitch
Even though that’s what you said, right?
People really think they know the half of what your life like
Imagine your enemies was in charge of all your highlights
Like you could spend a minute in this limelight

[Chorus]
Happy Father’s Day to my niggas
I hope that today you gon’ get love
I hope that she pay when that bill comes
Happy Father’s Day to my niggas

[Verse 2]
In slave times
A nigga got hung and then castrated, all while his kids watched
White folks laughing and singing like it was KIDZ BOP
They just moved to Twitter and TikTok
And this one for my single dads fighting for their right to be that
Through the bitterness in spite that be pushing them back
For the ones who just walked away for self-preservation
‘Cause controlling people killing him slowly, that shit is sad
It ain’t always what it seem
What you see is the surface, but what is underneath?
I tell my homies I get it and just protect your peace
And if the price is your peace, then boy, that shit is steep
What a motherfucking fee
We never win, though
We either never enough or just a little too much
It’s like a deadbeat daddy just get it easier
Begging that nigga to see his kids, I’m begging to keep my kids, so

[Chorus]
Happy Father’s Day to my niggas
I hope that today you gon’ get love
I hope that she pay when that bill comes
Happy Father’s Day to my niggas

[Verse 3]
Today, I ain’t entertaining the attitude
Today, I’m accepting nothing but gratitude
Today, I’ma kick it with all my bros, appreciating each other
Don’t call me, I’m on sabbatical
I’m super dad
Bread winner, hug giver, lunch maker, school pickup, life teacher
Book reader, joke teller, face maker, bath giver, shoe tier
Who’s tired? Me and not me
Always at my top speed
Fatherhood’s a gift when you really present
And you gon’ miss a lot of shit if you don’t pay attention
Let ’em know they loved, that’s the main intention
Let ’em know they loved when they anxious and they feeling pensive
Every day gon’ have its bad moments
And every day he gon’ be mad when I make him have his nap
He gon’ teach me how to dab, I’ma teach him how to rap
We just learning as we go, and we going with the flow, so

[Chorus]
Happy Father’s Day to my niggas (Yeah)
I hope that today you gon’ get love (You gon’ get love)
I hope that she pay when that bill comes
Happy Father’s Day to my niggas

[Outro]
You put food on my table
Happy Father’s Day
