lyrics

HOOK 1:

Church boy/ school boy/ dope boy/
Loaded down with attitude/ with like 20 pair of shoes/
Who ya gon call now when the lawyer call your name? (mama)
And when your standing in front of the state/ looking all ashamed (your mama)

Church boy/ school boy/ dope boy/
Got a/ backpack full of time and you don’t know why/
Why you don’t even respect the uncles/
And the ladies that sacrificed/ to birth ya…


VERSE 1:

I’ll dance with you always/ on pathways/ of gold/
Loving you/ is loving me/ guess who/ above me/
My old bird/ standing in front of the 2 inch glass/
Ready to hand the cash/ over for her son/
No fun/ in picking switches/ her strengths is/
Passed down/Passed crown/ Queens to Kings is/
Blood on the seal/ deal/ the payments is love/
I found forgiveness/ in her hearts abyss/
Abysmal/ how many times/ she found the god/
Behind bars/ no judgement/stood pimpish/
judge handed sentences/assault charge drinking/
Driving on suspension/ she took it in stride/
And handed the benjamins/ like it’s nothing/
Just told me/ get ya shit in order/ tired of the bullshit/
Sunday dinners/ chest filled with/ scars/
Scarce/ farce/ when it comes to the tongues/
Packed lunches/ when the free hots ran out/
Devout/ catholic/ only way she understand it/
No judgement/ live/ and let live/ with the husband/
Substance/ abundance/Louie slug practice/
Commitment on balance/ raise the valance/
On my mama’s palace/ callused/ hands/
Constructed/ negative malice/ balanced the past tense/
In the universe absence/ she/ the universal baptist…

HOOK 2:

Church boy/ school boy/ dope boy/
Sagging around with an assault charge on your name/
Only reason I make this song because I love ya/
Only reason I take the time/ cause I don’t wanna bury ya/
Church boy/ school boy/ dope boy/
Loaded down with attitude/ with like 20 pair of shoes/
Who ya gonna call now when the lawyer call your name? (mama)
And when your standing in front of the state/ looking all ashamed (your mama)

Verse 2:

It was her strength and greatness/ I wonder how I made it/
Her patience/ amazing/ sustaining/ us vagrants/
Ashamed when/ mama named us/ fingered in court/
Locked down/ real/ reveal real/ bailed us out/
Who you call/ in a real life/ re-route?/
Relevant lessons/ Moms always count her blessings/
Guessing no seconds/ when I return to the essence/
Ima look for my heaven/ ya'll/ mama’s/ my weapon/
Sentenced /she said/ to guard/ your heart/
Life ain’t about the bread/ art/ imitate art/
Who you call when prosecuters/ call your name?
fixed asthmatic lungs/we was the young of the flames/
fame/ aside/ precise aim/ with advice/ its still priceless/
Son/ you ain’t the nicest/ get to work/ until ya knuckles the whitest/
Times is/ the blood on the seal/ unveil the righteous/
Your highness/ until I’m lifeless/ we convinced that you got that midas/
Touch and words is gold/ cold blooded world/ mama NEVER fold/
She uplift/ and behold/ any load/ is controlled/
By the hand/ head/ and the heart of my soul/
I plan/ to dead/ the bullshit & move you inside a chateau/
2 hues/ brought blues/ And still to stay in the war/ was the path that you chose/ You had a jones/To sacrifice your soul…

HOOK 3:
Church boy/ school boy/ dope boy/
I ain’t gonna throw my hands up, I’ma love ya/
Love ya, love ya/
I know times can get hard/
But I love ya so/
But being hard ain’t gonna get no weight off and rid the scars/
Church boy/ school boy/ dope boy/
I ain’t gonna throw my hands up, I’ma love ya/
Love ya, love ya/
I know times can get hard//
But I love ya so/
But being hard ain’t gonna get no weight off and rid the scars/

no matter how you feel your blood’s on the seal/
You can’t just treat her any way/
Law says here's the deal/
And that’s still your mama/
That’s still mama/
let your recognition show/
That’s still mama…
