„And then all of a sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me,
How we went from something's missing
To a family.
Lookin' back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be.“
He Didn't Have to Be, written by Brad Paisley and Kelley Lovelace.
Song lyrics, Who Needs Pictures (1999)
