Lyrics

Boys and girls Wanna hear a true story Saturday night Was at this real wild party They had the liquor Overflowing the cup About five, six strippers Trying to work for a buck Then I took one girl Outside with me Her name was Loni She went to junior high with me And said why you up in there Dancing for cash I guess a whole lot has changed Since I seen you last She said [CHORUS] 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 smoking rock now In and out of lock down 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 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 Hoping 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 done been through more shit You can't even relate to [repeat CHORUS] 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
