FAMILY SONG

Verse:

Family Song

Nothing like a family 
Battled tested the lessons we learned in our mistake
Made us great, Me my sister mom,

We had it hard 
So when one of us is going through it’s
Time to form the squad
When I was told to leave the church undercover
Sister provided for brother
She gave me cover I love her
This including my mother 
Dylan and Devon my brother 
My little niece with the stutter 
With the heavens above us you took me in with no mutter
And I thank you, for letting me in
The one bedroom apartment 
That was small to begin
In the ghetto we was taught to survive
Compartmentalize a house until we all up inside
Sharing food and momma cooking finger licking, no lie
This the medication after slaving, I cry, broken like ties 

I paid my tithe to the church, in the end 
The church brought me back to where I begin with family kin

It’s like that y’all

Chorus:
And this is for my family
And this is for my family
No family is perfect and we all go through
But at the end of the day you’re the one I run too

 

Verse 2:

Separated like a part in a braided head

We let others come between us like a kid in a parent’s bed

I subpoena my auntie Sandra 
She said where you been instead
Of being with your grandma

And dad in a clinic dead
He made it out though
I replied I was so sad 
Want to burry hatchets
And the ratchets had me mad
Told a lie that hurt me very deep 
Made y'all seem bad
But I don't care no more
Because I love you then we patched
Dad hit me up on the celly 
Talking to Mama a rumble hit my belly 
Excited to see Telly the twins 
And Shanna already 
Sounds of reggae music and 
Domino's hit the table 
Mommy petch is on the sofa 
Miah Cord are dressed in labels
Tanika smiling while jack is over the grill 
Red is telling us stories about his life in Victorville 
Dee and Tracey getting out soon 
Aunt Nicey uncle Jooney aunt Tita 
Aunt Ruby Jernette are dancing to the tunes

Chorus:
And this is for my family
And this is for my family
No family is perfect and we all go through
But at the end of the day you’re the one I run too

 

And this is for my family
And this is for my family
No family is perfect and we all go through
But at the end of the day you’re the one I run too
