For a long time my daddy and I weren't that close, but as time went on - things got better between the both of us.

My name was boy,

All the way up until I was around 15 or 16 -

That's what my daddy you'sta call me.

Mama got on'im a couple of times about that -

But still - he couldn't get the word son to come out of his mouth. Here I am the oldest of 3 male children and I'm the only one he came to like that,

my - GOODNESS! my - GOODNESS!

What on God's green earth - happened to ME?
