English Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Boys and girls wanna hear a true story?
Saturday night I was at this real wild party


They had the liquor overflowing the cup
About 5 or 6 strippers tryin to work for a buck
And I took one girl outside with me


Her name was Lonni, she went to junior high with me
I said, “Why you up in there dancin’ for cash?
I guess a whole a lot’s changed since I seen you last.”
She said

[Refrain]
What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
Cause he’s hungry


And the only way to feed him is to, sleep with a man for a little bit of money
And his daddy’s gone


Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown
I ain’t got a job now
So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life

[Verse 2]
Girl you ain’t the only one with a baby
That’s no excuse to be living all crazy
Then she looked me right square in the eye


And said every day I wake up hopin’ to die
She said-nigga I know about pain cause


Me and my sister ran away so my daddy couldn’t rape us
Before I was a teenager
I been through more shit that you can’t even relate to

[Refrain]
What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
Cause he’s hungry


And the only way to feed him is to, sleep with a man for a little bit of money
And his daddy’s gone


Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown
I ain’t got a job now
So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life

Yo way hold up, hold up, hold up
Hold up, stop the breakin’ yo


Stop the breakin’
You should you ain’t gonna be going out
Like this men

[Bridge]
Hold up!
What would you do?


Get up on my feet and let go of every excuse
What would you do?
Cause I wouldn’t want my baby to go through what I went through


Come on, what would you do?
Get up on my feet and stop making tired excuses
What would you do?
Girl, I know if my mother can do it, baby you can do it

[Refrain]
What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
Cause he’s hungry


And the only way to feed him is to, sleep with a man for a little bit of money
And his daddy’s gone


Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown
I ain’t got a job now
So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life

What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
Cause he’s hungry


And the only way to feed him is to, sleep with a man for a little bit of money
And his daddy’s gone


Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown
I ain’t got a job now
So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life
Come on

What would you do if your son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor
Cause he’s hungry


And the only way to feed him is to, sleep with a man for a little bit of money
And his daddy’s gone


Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown
I ain’t got a job now
So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life, uhm
