Your daddy know you’re a flame
Your daddy know you’re a flame
Your daddy know you’re a flame
Your daddy know 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

Adding: The first superhero I ever knew…Was called dad.

    ?Your daddy love comes with a lifetime guarantee… Great song from another “Nigerian” legend. May the family of this legend be comforted.

    Segun Bucknor , a fine musician of his generation, a Fela contemporary. May his rest in peace. It is a pity that today’s kids know so little about him and his musical contribution.
