MK19

Yes he hit it
Then he quit it, Hell yeah, she was with it
No time for life's mistakes she was busy making cake
Played higher stakes but he played for keeps
Turned up tricked out/ Had he living on her knees
17 yrs. old and dying to be free
Senior high pro 17 yrs. old common reputation of a certified hoe
Daddy's long gone, momma's barely home, brown girl lost, making it alone
No clear direction but failures not an option so every single night this girl keeps it poplin'
Turned to them for help, told them she needed money
Everyones got mouths to feed to grown to hide it from me
But ain't nothin' funny, no ain't nothin funny
A pipers paradise but momma raised no dummies
When the rent is past due and the landlords gunning for me
When rents past due and the landlords gunning for me

Yes he hit it
Then he quit it, Hell yeah, she was with it
No time for life's mistakes she was busy making cake
Played higher stakes but he played for keeps
Turned up tricked out/ Had he living on her knees
17 yrs. old and dying to be free

The bee does all the work while the man enjoys the honey
Stables kept clean so not a dollar is kept from me
This pimpin's in my blood and my days are always sunny
Follow what I say and I'll show you where's the money
She contemplated and too quickly she agreed
A lifetime of sorrow that all tarted from a seed
cause she could never see all she was meant to be
The smallness of her vision was the greatest tragedy
Rise or fall together, the forest from the trees
Ain't no nation building when we living on our knees
To beg and borrow and fuck for basic needs
From Danny's shop it's pure water from Tommy's stand it's tea
