I went tripping over a step
But my dad grabbed me by the neck
Saying "I'll be here, don't forget to call"

from Ashley Chittock – Little Bird on Rap Genius

Meaning

But no matter what, his dad will always be there to love him.

Aww.

Also, this line is a slight tribute to my actual father, who was kind enough to drive me around to godforsaken Essex pubs to play gigs when I could not.
