Auntie clutch her heart/oh my God he's so smart/ yup he can
draw too/ ooh and he's into art/ how does he do in school/ they say
that he's so bright/ wait till you get a look at all the poems he write/
open school night/ what's in the dark comes to the light/ tell my
momma that I'm failing in every class/ get home she whoop my
ass/ beat me for failing but always too busy to help me pass/ from
the womb to the Resource Room/social promotion motion/ high
school's the worst place/ teachers wonder why I don't remember
shit they never really taught me in the first place/ momma mad
cause I'm doing bad/ she praised me/ sad /I know maybe/ lady
thought I was on my best behavior/ grow up to be a savior/ and get
us out the ghetto that big house in the south/ not/ manual labor/
cooked coke/ a razor/ rumors spread by the neighbor/ me sleeping
on the couch

Get a good job/ I wouldn't go back to school and get a good job/ get
that GED and get a good job/ say momma you wait and see/ I'll get
a good job/ say yes instead of yeah/ get a good job/ say momma I'll
cut my hair I'll get a good job/I'm saying momma I swear I'll get a
good job/momma I'll get a good job/

Maybe I wasn't bad enough to be saved/ or good enough to be
praised/ perhaps/ I was left alone to slip through the cracks/ high
school high/ I got my hair braided and wrote raps/ future grim/ on
a few occasions I even failed gym/ here's a fact/ man I used to cut
school/ read text books/ and do the exercises in the back/ wasn't
against learning just felt school was wack/ then I started burning
and fell way off track/ brother like see/ I know that you already
smoking this shit/ but it a be safer if you smoked it with me man /
and that was the first time I lit up/ be six years before I ever give
the shit up/ L's to the face/ run/ police sweeping the staircase/ say/
times is money/ man money can be replaced/ but every hour you
waste/ is just an hour erased/ every hour you waste/ is just an hour
you could've got a

Good job/ I wouldn't go back to school and get a good job...
And she was like/ boy you ain't gone lie up on my couch/ eat up all
my food/ run up all my bills/ and I was like/ momma I've been
looking for a job/ but I dropped out of school/ and I ain't got no
skills/ damn/ GED job readiness program/ whole fam like yo
scram/ you ain't living here/ poof/ I disappear/ like who did I rob/
shit they never taught me nothing but to/ get up/ get out/ and go
get a good job
