"Babyfather" as written by Helen Adu, Juan Janes and Andy Nicholls....
We were waiting for the bus
No-one much around but us
Then I see this young boy cut a look at me

I'm stunned
In a daze
He had the whole street set ablaze
It's only love they say
Makes you feel this way
She liked his eyes she wanted more
The baby gonna have your smile for sure

He saw a lovely girl
Smelling sweet and soapy like fresh air
She saw him looking acted like she didn't care

That's how we knew
And so love grew a flower
A flower that is you

Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Even to the angels it may sound like a lie

For you child
He has the troops and extra backup standing by
For you child
For you he's the best he can be
For you child
For you he's the best he can be
Oh child don't you know
Your daddy love come with a life time guarantee

Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Yeah daddy love you child
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame

Daddy love you yeah
It's only you he'll say
Made the young boy hungry for the man he is today
It' only love, love, love, love
Can make you feel this way

Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Yeah daddy love you child

Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy love come with a life time guarantee

Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Daddy love you, yeah

Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Did I tell you your daddy loves you

Your daddy knows you're a flame
Your daddy knows you're a flame
Oh child didn't you know
Your daddy love come with a life time guarantee
Daddy love you

Your daddy knows you're a flame
Daddy love you yeah

    General CommentFor me this song is about a pregnant woman who gets puzzled when she sees a young boy in the street. She sees in his smile the smile her baby will have.
    Then we turn to the father's point of view and the description of the moment he met his future wife, a very cute girl who seemed not to notice him.
    From their love story comes a baby, and the rest of the song is about the very relationship between the baby and his father and how the father promises never to let him down. ("Your daddy love comes with a life time guarantee")

    General CommentI believe this is about two people who meet and are very attracted to each other. The song briefly describes their meeting. Then it tells how they had a baby together - And so love grew a flower. Next the song talks about the father and how he tries to be the best he can be for the baby. How his love comes with a lifetime guarantee.

    General Commentthe meaning's quite obvious. i definitely sense that this song is personal for sade adu. she had her daughter with a jamaican musician that she is no longer with and the lyrical composition as well as the reggae influences on this song definitely convey to me that this song was written for her daughter.

    love it.
    love sade. <3

    General CommentI definitely agree with willworkforchanel; I think the song is to her daughter, saying even though her and the man aren't together anymore, her father still loves her with all his heart <3
