GenderMusicWomanhood Leave a Comment

DaddyDaDa is the stage name of a singer, inspirational songwriter and author of children’s books. His music features “positive messages, discussing current social and cultural issues,” and his very first release under the DaddyDaDa Productions label is Treat All Women with Respect, a rhymey little tune he describes as “new rap.”

one, two, three, four… no more women on the floor

Performing with a group called the Makinto Tribe, DaddyDaDa, who claims to work with the NO MORE campaign, says, “This video was created to help get the message out that it’s time to bring an end to domestic violence and sexual assault,” and “to make everyone aware of the right way to treat women and children.”

While we’re not sure what we just watched, and the stereotyping is palpable, and the lyrics (see below) need some serious polishing, we find ourselves wanting to applaud the effort (slowly, softly) and can appreciate the intent of the overarching message… we think… maybe… we gotta watch this again.


Treat All Women with Respect
Lyrics by Darryl Snider and DaddyDaDa Productions
Musical Composition by Makinto and Joyful Music & Arts

One, two, three, four
No more women on the floor

Treat all women with respect
What you give, is what you get
Treat all women with respect, I say

Heads up guys – I’m talking to you,
Life’s not easy – so what ya gonna do?
Step to the plate and be a man
Never hit a woman – or abuse a child
It’s just wrong – and illegal too
Someday it will catch up with you
Times have changed – domestic violence
Will no longer go down – and be silenced

Use your mind – not your fist
True love – is full of bliss
Keep your job – stay out of jail
Control your anger – no more bail

Treat all women with respect
What you give, is what you get
Treat all women with respect, I say

Don’t be a baby daddy and walk away
Be a Father – it’s okay to stay
If you father a child, it’s just the beginning,
With child and mother in your life, that is winning
Bond with your child and lead the right way.
Give them your love – give them your time.
Set a good example and share your life
Reverse the vicious cycle – of abandonment, abuse
Know your child, love your child and provide
She might be the next – Beyonce or Sally Ride…..

Treat all women with respect
What you give, is what you get
Treat all women with respect, I say

One, two, three, four
No more women on the flooooor…

Now ladies out there – let me talk to you,
It’s okay to say no to men and still be cool
Stand up for yourself – and then decide
What you gonna do – with your own life?
Use your brain and finish school,
Don’t fall for a guy – who acts like a fool
Is he the kind of man’s – gonna care for you?
Too many women – have their innocence stolen
Repeating a cycle – that must be broken
Respect yourself and leave a man who strikes
Find a good man – who will treat you right!

One, two, three, four
No more women on the floor

Men, Women, Kids – take pride and have hope,
You have a bright future – and that’s the real dope
There’s redemption out there – just waiting for you
Get an education and work hard too
We must change our ways – and see the light
It’s what we make of ourselves – each day and night
Stay together, pray together – and everyone scream
Work together – take pride – and join the team!

Treat all women with respect
What you give, is what you get
Treat all women with respect, I say

Treat all women with respect
What you give, is what you get
Treat all women with respect, I say

Treat all women with respect
What you give is what you get
Treat all women with respect, I say

One two, three, four
No more women on the floor!
