    Dear Mama

    You are appreciated...

    When I was young, me and my mama had beef
    17 years old kicked out on tha streets
    though back in tha time, I never thought I'd see her face
    ain't a woman alive that can take my mommas place
    suspended from school, scared ta go home
    I was a fool with tha big boys breaking all tha rules
    shed tears with my baby sister
    over tha years we wuz poorer than tha other little kids
    and even though we had different dadies
    tha same drama when things went wrong we blamed mama
    I reminised on tha stress I caused, it wuz hell
    hugg'en on my mama from a jail cell
    and who'ed think in elementry, heeeey i'd see tha penatentry
    One day
    running from tha Police, that's right
    Momma catch me--put a whoop'en to my backside
    and even as a crack fiend mama,
    ya always was a black queen mama
    I finally understand for a woman
    it ain't easy--trying ta raise a man
    ya always wuz commited, a poor single mother on welfare,
    tell me how ya did it
    there's no way I can pay ya back
    but tha plan is ta show ya that I understand.
    you are appreciated......

    Laaaaady, don't cha know we luv ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, place no one above ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, don't cha know we luv ya

    Ain't nobody tell us it wuz fair
    no luv for my daddy, cause tha coward wuzn't there
    he passed away and I didn't cry
    cause my anger, wouldn't let me feel for a stranger
    they say i'm wrong and i'm heartless
    but all along I wuz looking for a father--he wuz gone
    I hung around with tha thug's and even though they sold drugs
    they showed a young brother luv
    I moved out and started really hang'in
    I needed money of my own so I started slang'in
    I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks
    It feels good, putting money in your mailbox
    I love paying rent when tha rents due
    I hope ya got tha diamond necklace that I sent to you
    cause when I wuz low, you was there for me
    ya never left me alone, cause ya cared for me
    and I can see ya coming home after work late
    ya in tha kitchen trying ta fix us a hot plate
    just working with tha scraps you wuz given
    and mama made miracles every Thanksgiving
    but now tha road got rough, your alone
    trying ta raise two bad kids on your own
    and there's no way I can pay ya back
    but my plan is ta show ya that I understand
    you are appreciated.....

    Laaaaady, don't cha know we luv ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, place no one above ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, don't cha know we luv ya

    pour out some liquor and I remenise
    cause through tha drama, I can always depend on my mama
    and when it seems that i'm hopeless
    you say tha words that can get me back in focus
    when I wuz sick as a little kid
    ta keep me happy theres no limit to tha things ya did
    and all my childhood memories
    are full of all tha sweet things ya did for me
    and even though I act craaaazy
    I got ta thank tha Lord that ya maaaade me
    There are no words that can express how I feel
    Ya never kept a secret, always stayed real
    and I appreciate how ya raised me
    and all tha extra love that ya gave me
    I wish I could take tha pain away
    If you can make it through tha night, there's a brighter day
    everything'll be alright if ya hold on
    it's a strugle
    everyday gotta roll on
    and there's no way I can pay ya back
    but my plan is ta show ya that I understand
    you are appreciated.......

    Laaaaady, don't cha know we luv ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, place no one above ya
    Sweeeet Laaaady, don't cha know we luv ya, Sweeeet Laaaady

    Laaaady...[fades]...Laaaady
