I just hear mom praying, I just hear gran' sayin'
"Somebody ought to just reach out and help me."

Eight decades and four years, and gran' still kickin'
Look at ma, still whippin'
Still keep a strap, won't hesitate to give the kids whippings
Tryin' to make it to heaven, still livin'
Make a visit, stop by the weed spot, grab a dub
I know grams gon' have me a grub
I hit the front door, smell aroma of her food cookin'
My favorite - a pot of rice and her stewed chicken
Hit the basement, holla at uncle Doc
Nephew wit' Snu, kickin'
Where dudes, what's your new mission?
We bust it up; he cold frontin'
I know this nigga want to hold somethin'
I know grams upstairs preppin' for church
Matchin' up her hat, shoes, pocketbooks and skirts
I break her off some dubs, so she can go see the preacher man
Even though I know he false teachin', damn

All I hear is grams prayin', I keep hearin' moms sayin', shit
"Somebody ought to just reach out and help me."
That's all I hear is moms prayin'; I keep hearin' grams sayin'
"Somebody ought to just reach out and help me."

Don't cry, mama; your baby boy done weathered the storm
And I found peace right here in your arms
By the way, how you gettin along, huh?
I know it's been tough bearing the pain since daddy's been gone
But, all in all, you still stood tall and never shedded a tear
I'm thankin' God you still here
'Cause only heaven knows all my heartaches and setbacks
Goin' from a high school dropout to shovelin' wet wax
I'm never gon' forget that look in your eyes (look in your eyes)
When you told me that my grandfather died
It was like nothing had happened, and I'm knowin' that you miss him
But to accept death is just the side of a good Christian
And I miss him, just words; and I lived it in life (lived it in life)
And I take it step by step, but I take it in Christ (take it in Christ)
'Cause I'm knowin' I can't make it alone (uh, uh)
You told me not to buy you a new house because in heaven's your home
And as hurt as I was, I had to smile wit' ya
And thank God that we crossed paths 'cause you one strong sister
And I'm never gon' forget ya
Heaven sent us an angel, and the world gon' miss ya, mama


I'm in love with two women
The one that birth me
And the one that birth her
Know that you gotta hurt me
Before you hurt her, or hurt her
Or hurt them, or hurt we
I cursed, see the worsest death
Beat you niggas to a thirstiest breath
Off wit' ya head, niggas; fuck that all-purpose vest
I'm ridin' all out for Umi
Christian Caffer though I follow the path of the Sumi
What can I do but bow down and give offerings
For the lady with the softest skin?
Keep picturin' grams tuckin' me in
Breakin' me out of her change purse
Slash teacher, slash preacher, slash changed nurse
One woman, ten boys, seven daughters
Three story house wit' no supporter
Damn, you want to get your life in order
Words from the oldest boy of your youngest daughter
