PLIES lyrics : "FAMILY STRAIGHT"

[Intro: Plies - talkin']
I know sum people that say money change thangs
I´m hear to tell you money don´t change every mutha$#[email protected] thing


[Chorus:]
Last ten years momma been workin' twice a day

Grandma on a kidney machine, she done lost all the weight
My aunty got AIDS, she startin' to lose her faith
My brutha back in prison, second time he gone away

My daddy still smokin' dat %#@! I can see it in his face
My cousin 16 pregnant from a ^!$$% 38
Tryna stay on my son, make sure he doin what his mama say

Before ya take me God, help me get my family straight

[Verse 1:]

I asked God why he didn´t bless me with a silver spoon
Cause if he did I'd never have to be a goon
If he gon' change my family, I hope he change it soon

I´m tired of answerin' my phone hearin' bad news
My grandma on a walker she can barely move
Just to tell me she love me take all her breath to do

She on a kidney machine I kno it´s hurtin' her 2
Four times a week gotta get her blood drew
She say the bible and prayer the only thing that get her through

Why my grandma deserve this, god what did she do?
Thought caus' I had a lil money I could buy her a new
She hold the family together, she one I can´t loose


[Chorus]


[Verse 2:]
My aunty got AIDS and I´m watchin her suffer
Why she gotta die caus' she was in love with a hustler

Even tho she's dying she say she still love him
I kno if I see him again I´ll kill dat mutha$#[email protected]
Only get 15 minutes to talk to my brutha

Cause he in prison gotta go see him if I wanna hug him
Sum ^!$$%s willin to loose their freedom just for thuggin
Caus' he made a mistake gotta be here caus' I love him

Uncle just called me found out his daughter $#[email protected],
$#[email protected] when they get 14 now like it´s nothing
In da hood it´s happenin' 10 out of a dozen

Dat ^!$$% her daddy age dat is $#[email protected] my lil cousin

[Chorus]


[Verse 3:]
My daddy damn near 50 still livin' with his momma

can´t even have a family reunion caus' it´s always drama
Last three months I dun lost both of my uncles
Why my family luck so bad, I sit and wonder

We ain´t close like we should and it´s taken us under
The only time we come together is to have a funeral
Sit around and talk about each other and spread rumors

Know it´s some of my fault caus' I don´t talk to 'em
For my family to be happy, that´s all I want
Help my grandma fight, god I know she don´t

To see my mama retire, that´s all I want
Hope my brutha get out to see his kids for once.
