TO THE MOON AND BACK


HOOK:
One time for all the fathers and mothers carrying on/
one time for all the sisters and brothers that make us strong/
and one time for lost loved ones - a toast to the dead/
wish you could have been here last christmas - we’d have broken some bread/
one time for all the husbands and wives that keep it buck/
one time for all the cousins and friends we don’t see enough/
and one time for the seeds to whom we pass the baton/
the world is yours, but I hope I’m not forgotten after I’m gone/


VERSE 1:
Dear Mom and Dad, it’s your baby boy/
and you might never understand this crazy noise/
but I’ve never known a day without a family/
and I just want to say thank you for having me/
and that’s not the most complex bar I’ve ever spit/
just happy to have learned from y’all to never quit/
you weathered storms/
that’s a metaphor/
you survived, took stronger and better forms/
family get togethers - I was a little dude/
when y’all danced Cuecitas in the living room/
remember Saturday mornings at the swimming pool?/
I really miss those days before middle school/
I never worried about food, or having clothes on my back/
knew it was just your job - but I owe you for that/
see - I had it good, never felt alone as a kid/
I didn’t have everything, but had a Bro and a Sis/
and through thick and thin, all the bickering/
every argument spent not listening/
I always got your back, I know you feel the same/
it was hard growing apart, and things need to change/
it was inevitable that we go our separate ways/
I still think about the four of y’all everyday/
my childhood was all that and a bag of chips/
you cooked for me/
I had books to read/
a whole suitcase full of toys for on the go/
my little missile launching robot that could walk and glow/
I just want my Bro to know without his lead/
and protection, the world would have devoured me/
and to my baby Sister, I always crazy miss you/
road trips and playlists/
were the flippin’ greatest/
and everybody say their Mom and Dad’s the best/
but just know how I feel - words can’t express, so…/


HOOK:
One time for all the fathers and mothers carrying on/
one time for all the sisters and brothers that make us strong/
and one time for lost loved ones - a toast to the dead/
wish you could have been here last christmas - we’d have broken some bread/
one time for all the husbands and wives that keep it buck/
one time for all the cousins and friends we don’t see enough/
and one time for the seeds to whom we pass the baton/
the world is yours, but I hope I’m not forgotten after I’m gone/


VERSE 2:
Dear wife, it’s the man you wed/
look at me struggling to find things I haven’t said/
I knew that you were the one before this tattoo’d ring/
every time you smile - the feeling that you bring/
cuz with more than words you say you’ll always love me/
this impulsive dummy/
that you’ve dubbed a hubby/
who’s sometimes at his best, but there’s always something/
and for better or for worse, when I’m falling, crumbling/
you’re my guardian angel, the glue that holds me to-/
gether when I break, I love you and only you/
I wrote a song for you on your twenty fourth/
and here’s a little something else, I got plenty more/
ways to tell you that there’s nowhere else I wanna be/
than in your company/
the way you’re loving me/
how do I thank you for making this life for me/
so much better than it ever had a right to be?/
our first date - I was broken inside and out/
and I was so on-the-go, never lying down/
I stayed grinding out/
these MixTapes to say/
things I didn’t wanna tell nobody face to face/
until you came along when there was no way in/
I told you all my secrets ’till 4am/
reading books on the Metro heading to the museum/
good to my godsons every time that you’d see ‘em/
no surprise to me you’re such a good Mom/
to our son and daughter/
those lucky monsters/
and in case we forgot to say the words - then…/
…the three of us agree, you’re our favorite person/
and stress had me a jealous fool/
worried about things you’d never do/
I’m so grateful for everything you get me through/
the best choice I ever made - that’s forever you/


HOOK:
One time for all the fathers and mothers carrying on/
one time for all the sisters and brothers that make us strong/
and one time for lost loved ones - a toast to the dead/
wish you could have been here last christmas - we’d have broken some bread/
one time for all the husbands and wives that keep it buck/
one time for all the cousins and friends we don’t see enough/
and one time for the seeds to whom we pass the baton/
the world is yours, but I hope I’m not forgotten after I’m gone/


VERSE 3:
And lastly, I don’t know what I’d do/
without my little Monkeys, things 1 and 2/
playing in your rooms while Daddy does the stu/
music makes me happy, but not as much as you/
my dear Pretty Girl, my dear Handsome Boy/
I remember being young and having toys/
and now it’s y’all turn for playground and video games/
so much is different, very little the same/
but what’ll never change is your Mom and I/
being in your corners for all our lives/
see, I was twenty eight when I became a parent/
got myself a new job, I’ll be taking care of/
these combinations of love and marriage/
that brought your Mom and I together and made us your parents/
and trying to express what I feel for y’all/
there’s not enough time, enough beats, or bars/
there’s too much to say in just thirty two/
besides it isn’t really something that words can do/
but you know your Dad - he’s so stubborn, he’ll try/
I’m ‘bout to go for the win like ‘W’ ‘I’/
’N’ do my best like Tony Horton say/
I can’t wait to finish so we both could go and play/
some make believe while we making tea/
while we saving the animals, and saving trees/
you were both so good to our puppy
and that’s why he loved y’all even more than he loved me/
a good dog yes that he was/
and there’s always time for a family hug/
you guys make me feel like I’m crazy strong/
and we’ll take care of you until the day we’re gone/
you guys make me feel like the coolest Dad/
man, I love my Fam to the moon and back/
so this one’s…


HOOK:
…for all the fathers and mothers carrying on/
one time for all the sisters and brothers that make us strong/
and one time for lost loved ones - a toast to the dead/
wish you could have been here last christmas - we’d have broken some bread/
one time for all the husbands and wives that keep it buck/
one time for all the cousins and friends we don’t see enough/
and one time for the seeds to whom we pass the baton/
the world is yours, but I hope I’m not forgotten after I’m gone/
