Plies - Family Straight

rate me


<i>[Intro: Plies - talkin']</i> <br>

I know sum people that say money change thangs<br>

I'm hear to tell you money don't change every muthafuckin thing <br>


<i>[Chorus:]</i> <br>

Last ten years momma been workin' twice a day <br>

Grandma on a kidney machine, she done lost all the weight <br>

My aunty got AIDS, she startin' to lose her faith <br>

My brutha back in prison, second time he gone away <br>

My daddy still smokin' dat shit I can see it in his face <br>

My cousin 16 pregnant from a nigga 38<br>

Tryna stay on my son, make sure he doin what his mama say <br>

Before ya take me God, help me get my family straight<br>


<i>[Verse 1:]</i> <br>

I asked God why he didn't bless me with a silver spoon <br>

Cause if he did I'd never have to be a goon<br>

If he gon' change my family, I hope he change it soon <br>

I'm tired of answerin' my phone hearin' bad news <br>

My grandma on a walker she can barely move<br>

Just to tell me she love me take all her breath to do <br>

She on a kidney machine I kno it's hurtin' her 2 <br>

Four times a week gotta get her blood drew<br>

She say the bible and prayer the only thing that get her through <br>

Why my grandma deserve this, god what did she do? <br>

Thought caus' I had a lil money I could buy her a new <br>

She hold the family together, she one I cant loose <br>


<i>[Chorus]</i> <br>


<i>[Verse 2:]</i> <br>

My aunty got AIDS and I'm watchin her suffer<br>

Why she gotta die caus' she was in love with a hustler <br>

Even tho she's dying she say she still love him <br>

I kno if I see him again I'll kill dat muthafucker<br>

Only get 15 minutes to talk to my brutha <br>

Cause he in prison gotta go see him if I wanna hug him <br>

Sum niggas willin to loose their freedom just for thuggin <br>

Caus' he made a mistake gotta be here caus' I love him <br>

Uncle just called me found out his daughter fuckin,<br>

fuckin when they get 14 now like its nothing <br>

In da hood it's happenin' 10 out of a dozen<br>

Dat nigga her daddy age dat is fuckin my lil cousin <br>


<i>[Chorus]</i> <br>


<i>[Verse 3:]</i> <br>

My daddy damn near 50 still livin' with his momma <br>

Can't even have a family reunion caus' it's always drama <br>

Last three months I dun lost both of my uncles<br>

Why my family luck so bad, I sit and wonder<br>

We ain't close like we should and its taken us under <br>

The only time we come together is to have a funeral <br>

Sit around and talk about each other and spread rumors <br>

Know it's some of my fault caus' I don't talk to 'em <br>

For my family to be happy, that's all I want<br>

Help my grandma fight, god I know she don't <br>

To see my mama retire, that's all I want<br>

Hope my brutha get out to see his kids for once.<br>
