about

Penned following the sudden death of their father, 3DL's "Tell My Daddy" is a heartfelt song about honor, love and family. The group consists of brothers Theodore, Shade and Jason Jenifer, natives of the Washington, DC area.

lyrics

My dad and I had a little understanding
Though we didn't talk much, between us love was known
Now that he's no longer here, how I miss the chance to hear
"Hey, it's your father" on the telephone
But I'm happy cuz I know he's with you Jesus
And he is more alive now than he's ever been before
Now he walks on streets of gold and has the privilege to behold
Your face Lord God forevermore

Jesus tell my daddy that I love him
And forgive me for the times I failed to show him
And one day not long from now
I'll hear the trumpet sound
And I know we'll never be apart again

He's probably so into you, he can't even hear me singing
So if you would Lord, grab a paper and a pen
And give him this message:
Daddy though I'm sad you're gone, go ahead, get your praise on
And I'll see you at the party later, but until then

I'm sending you this note to say I love you
And forgive me for the times I failed to show you
Your worth no one can afford and for you service to the Lord
You're with the Master now, enjoy your reward

Jesus tell my daddy that I love him
And forgive me for the times I failed to show him
And one day not long from now
I'll hear the trumpet sound
And I know we'll never be apart again
