Daughters

Hello, everyone, voici La Piggy! De radio announcer just played one ov mi favourite songs, John Mayer's "Daughters"--what a singer and a songwriter!
De song says girls need more love from their father--special request to man like Scratchie because him love and cherish Da Short One in an exemplary manner!--and I agree wif de song in general. Children in general need love--boys and girls--but ah really understand where de artiste is comin from when he focuses on girls--because a lot ov de moral decay in de Caribbean comes from girls and boys who don't know how to love--having never received love--and JA, especially, has a way ov sayin, "Women have baby, but men have maybe." Ah don't agree wif that kinda reasonin, but De Piggy won't get started on that! Anyway, here are some ov de lyrics from this wonderful song:

"Fathers be good to your daughters,daughters will love like you do,
Yeah, girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters too.

Boys you can break, find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong, and boys soldier on
But boys would be gone without warmth of a woman's good good heart
On behalf of every man, looking out for every girl
You are the god and the weight of her world."

Cho Miss Ting! Love John Mayer although I don't have any of his CD's . did hear him on on of those muscial awards show which I think he won something.
Beautiful words. De man can write fe true and the words are true. It all starts with us-eh, women bring forth life. I cringe when I hear people refer to women as "de baby madda".
Women should be treated like queens. For every successful man there is his queen beside him.

Sunshine, de baby-madda concept is detrimental to family life. I don't have any Mayer CD's ov mi own, but Lawd mi love de man! He does sing de truth.
Abeni, you and De Piggy are on de same wavelength.
Jdid, yes, boys need lovin' care as well, and this verse seems to leave them out, but if yu listen to de whole song, you'll hear that they're in it too.
Dr. D, as usual, De Piggy appreciates your visit even in de midst ov yu Christmas rush.
