can't a fine woman
a good man ta pay her attention ?
act like we don't even deserve a mention
is it men want a freak in da bedroom,
can't go out an' buy a bottle o' per fume?
waltz around proclaimin' u da man
won't clean my house or lend a helpin' hand
what about my complex mind?
too busy starin' at my shapely behind!
good enough ta be yo baby momma
I threaten ta leave u say I'm causin' drama
me up fa money
talkin' and tryin' ta get u sum honey
got wit' yo best friend
lemme stop, dwellin' on what shoulda-coulda been
Givin' us a so- called symbolic ring
good is it if she calls u
da hell out o' us
of a car, comin' home on a bus
why we say, "gimme back da damn key!"
us ta shield our fatherless daughters
of an act of brutal manslaughter
women stay strong
yo chil'ren and yourselves ta fight what is wrong
cry tears over a gent
