Dear Mama


You are appreciated...

When I was young,me and my mama had beef
17 years old kicked out on tha streets
though back in tha time,never thought I'd see her face
ain't a woman alive that can take my mommas place
suspended from school,sccared ta go home
I was a fool with tha big boys breaking all tha rules
shed tears with my baby sister
over tha years we wuz poorer than tha other little kids
and eventhough we had different daddies
tha same drama when things wehnt wrong we blamed mama
I reminised on tha stress I caused,it wuz hell
hugg'en on my mama from a jail cell
and who'd think in elementry,heey I'd see the penatentry
one day
running from tha police,that's right
momma catch me---put a whopp'en to my backside
and even as a crack fiend mama,
ya always was a black queen mamma,
I finally understand for a woman
it ain't easy---trying ta raise a man
ya always wuz commited,a poor single mother on welfare,
tell me how ya did it
there's no way I can pay ya back
but tha plan is ta show ya that I understand
you are appreciated....


Laaady,don't cha know we luv ya
Sweeeeeet Laaady,place no one about ya
Sweeeeeet Laaady,don't cha know we luv ya

Ain't nobody tell us it wuz fair
no luv for my daddy,cause tha coward wuzn't there
he passed away and I didn't cry
cause my anger wouldn't let me feel for a strnager
they say I'm wrong and I'm heartless
but all along I wuz looking for a father---he wuz gone
I hung around with tha thug's and eventhought they sold drugs
they showed a young brother luv
I moved out and started really hang'in
I needed money of my own so I started slang'in
I ain't guilty cause,eventhough I sell rocks
it feels good,putting money in your mailbox
I love paying rent when tha rents due
I hope ya got tha diamond necklace that I sent to you
cause when I wuz low,you was there for me
ya never left me alone,cause ya cared for me
and I can see ya coming home after work late
ya in tha kitchen trying ta fix us a hot plate
just working with tha scraps you wuz given
and mama made miracles every Thanksgiving
but now tha road got rough,your alone
trying ta raise two bad kids on your own
and ther's no way I can pay ya back
but my plan is ta show ya that I understand
you are appreciated...

Laaady,don't cha know we luv ya
Sweeeeet Laaady,place no one above ya
Sweeeeet Laaady,don't cha know we luv ya

pour out some piquor and I remenise
cause through tha drama,I can always depend on my mama
and when it seems that I'm hopeless
you say tha words that can get me back in focus
when I wuz sick as a little kid
ta keep me happy theres no limit to tha things ya did
and all my childhood memories
are full of all tha sweet things ya did for me
And even thoug i act craazyI, got ta thank tha Lord tha yamaaaaade me
there are no words that can express how I feel
ya never kept a secret,always satyed real
and I appreciate how ya raised me
and all tha extra love that ya gave me
I wish I could take tha pain away
if you can make it through tha night,there's a brighter day
everything'll be alright if ya hold on
it's a struggle
everyday gotta roll on
and there's no way I can pay ya back
but my plan is ta chow ya that I understand
you are appreciated...


Laaaady,don't cha know we luv ya
Sweeeet Laaaady,place no one above ya
Sweeeet Laaaady,don't cha know we luv ya,Sweeeet Laaaady
