LIL MAMA

LIL MAMA - Stand Up

rate me

Why don't you come around, my way (way) my way my way (way)

my way (way) [x2] Why don't you come around?

Uh, Uh, Uh, why don't you come around (way, way, way)

why don't you come around

Walking down Williams through Mart and Blays (mart and blays)

Call it Big Steps where I used to play (used to play)

The girls in the park gotta lot to say (lot to say)

Them girls over there threw they life away (life away)

Cause they got babies and they just now head (just now head)

They double numbers they mamas promoting this here

The boys on the court playing basketball (basketball)

They baby fathers they rather be boys and that's all

H-DUB Stand up! (uh)

B K Stand Up! (uh)

East Coast Stand Up! (uh)

You should

Come around my way [x2]

I'm from a place in Harlem

Where the streets they look like Africa

And the trees are in better condition than the homes so abandoned

P S 197

Where I study my academic stare run

And the books so worn and torn I can't think

How they tried to cripple me

Understood the lost side of me

Thank god I had a good teacher on the side of me

Showed me the right thangs to do

Overcame these obstacles

Haters stand up for the things that we've been through ooh

H-DUB. Stand up! (uh)

BK Stand Up! (uh)

East Coast Stand Up! (uh)

You should

Come around my way [x2]

Here we got these buildings called projects but they ain't three stories

They fill about ten on the block april flow go up by twenty

Stories I tell be true story kids cut school and watch Maury

Like if they ain't intelect in what's affecting my life I can't respect them

But that's just they way of the ghetto

People who come from where I'm from get it

But we still gotta make a difference

Stand up tall so the world can get it

Teach kids pride insted of "Outside"

Show another side and they show gon' rise

Stop letting responsibilty fall

I can tell you ain't been aroung my way at all

Why don't you come around (way)

So you can see what my (way)

Eyes been seeing why (way)

Why don't you come around

Where we need direction (way)

Respect in every lesson (way)

Way, why don't you come around

My way (way) my way my way (way) my way (way) [x2]

H-DUB Stand up! (uh)

B K Stand Up! (uh)

East Coast Stand Up! (uh) [x2]

You should come around my way

You should come around

Uh, Uh, Uh

Uh, Uh, Uh
