(SPONSOR) Awwww.... Mmmmm, awww.. (Chorus) All my life been po' But it really don't matter no mo' And they wonder why we act dis way Nappy Boys gon' be okay All my life been po' But it really don't matter no mo' And they wonder why we act this way Nappy Roots gon' be okay, okay (Big V) We came in the game, plain ya see Average man when the rest was ashamed to be Nappy head and all, ain't no changin me Ooooh-oh-oh-oooh-oh-oh... So rough it was, downright wrong I tell ya Nobody never gave us nothin but tough time and made us somethin Different stretch of road, new somethin to see Every state on the map, a different somethin to eat Daps and handshakes, it meant nuttin for real Everybody makin a killin man, showin no feelins Walkin off collectin pay, it's the way of the world Can't change it, so I guess I'm gon' pray for the world Sometimes I ask myself, was I made for the world? I scream this to you, and I say it to the world Nappy then, Nappy now - Nappy for a bit Knee-deep, head over heels in this country shit! (Chorus) (Skinny DeVille) Even though I pictured better days, I'm thankful for the chance I got to say amen The Lord done blessed me with his grace, I wish this day would never end We represent the slums, where we from, we filthy bum Fallin short off on these presidents, and the hard times they go and come Some take up off, without the chance, to make it at all Who woulda thought Skinny'd be the one that's, makin this call Lord, help me out, tell me where I went wrong I'm tryna find a righteous path, although it's, narrow and long I gotta do it for my son's sake, they tellin me, "Daddy be strong" We gon' make it through these hard times even though they go and they come Ya absolutely right, but somethin happened to me on last Tuesday night It's plain as day, man they... with this World Trade Naw brave ain't the word I'm lookin for ya Better make it hope when nothin seems to matter That's when, see, everything can go - any which way They got me hoped, see the Henny with the J Front po'ch, chillin broke, country folk, I'm Nappy in my ways yo (Chorus) (R. Prophit) It's a blessin we woke up this mornin All my colored folk stressin, come let's join hands Got to cope with the pressures of being po' man Papa taught me in order survive fear no man Nappy blossom from the root, henceforth we gon' stand Prophet grew from a juvenile to a grown man Ya gotta take responsibility for ya own man Zonin, two blunts a mo'nin, by sunrise sometimes I love to hear my woman moanin, it's on again Damn I hope you play this song again it's soul cleansin, the melody just rev my engines Tried a lot of things but usually just end up bending my ligaments, Searchin fa benjamins and all my folks locked in the tenaments And it don't make any sense (boi) children is innocent Broadcastin from the slums, that's why I'm writin these sentences Still low on my income, (why?) go 'head finish it (Chorus)
