I had a partner named Courtney
Dead, pulled by a van, blood gone from his head
I had another partner named Terry
Dead, he tried to flee the scene before they hit 'em wit the left
My grandma always said
When it rains it pours
So they're dying like flies
Got me kinda scared to go outdoors
I had a cousin named Ant
Dead, they say the young man only died by the head
The streets all we got it
Boys gon' be boys, me in ya hype
Teach your son to like guns with toys
Now what we supposed to do
When you know you gotta get ya kid enrolled in school?
So you start hanging 'round with the local crew
Have a smoke or two
Start kicking 'em a joke or two
Tell me what the parent's supposed to do?
Go tell momma
(Go tell momma)
To go ask daddy
(To go ask daddy)
That since when was the last time
We were a family
Like we supposed to be
Brothas and sistas
(Brothas and sistas)
Achi cousins I love you
(Achi cousins I love you)
And sometimes we as family
We don't do what we supposed to
So I say
Family, yeah, family
Family, yeah
1979 that's when my momma had me
2006, her oldest son is a daddy
Check it, I got two daughters of my own
They say I degrade women
But they degrade they self
They didn't have help, growing up
She had a dead beat momma
And a dead beat dad
She go and shake, shakes quick in the club
Drop it like it's hot
I tell my kids what to do
And what to do not
I'm a grown and
I gotta feed my kids
So I teach them the right
And wrong way to live
If you feel bad
You need to stop shaking, shaking
And your parents won't be so mad
Might smile at you
If you keep shaking your *** in the club
Ying Yang gon' show you love
Listen, I keep stressing to my daughters stay in school
Learn all you can, yes, I'm a real family man
Go tell momma
(Go tell momma)
To go ask daddy
(To go ask daddy)
That since when was the last time
We were a family
Like we supposed to be, family
Brothas and sistas
(Brothas and sistas)
Achi cousins I love you
(Achi cousins I love you)
And sometimes we as family
We don't do what we supposed to
So I say
Family, yeah, family
Family, yeah
Check this out
I wanna break the music down for a minute
I wanna say something to us
You know I say us 'cause we are a people
We all are equal
If you love your sister, your brother
Your father, your mother
Clap yo' hands
Clap yo' hands
Clap yo' hands
Clap yo' hands
Family, family
Family, family, family
Go tell momma
(Go tell momma)
To go ask daddy
(To go ask daddy)
That since when was the last time
We were a family
Like we supposed to be
Brothas and sistas
(Brothas and sistas)
Achi cousins I love you
(Achi cousins I love you)
And sometimes we as family
We don't do what we supposed to
So I say
Family, family
Family, yeah
