2pac - Dear Mama Şarkı Sözü

you are appreciated

[verse one: 2pac]

when ı was young me and my mama had beef
seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
though back at the time, ı never thought ıd see her face
aint a woman alive that could take my mamas place
suspended from school; and scared to go home, ı was a fool
with the big boys, breakin all the rules
ı shed tears with my baby sister
over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
and even though we had different daddys, the same drama
when things went wrong wed blame mama
ı reminice on the stress ı caused, ıt was hell
huggin on my mama from a jail cell
and whod think ın elementary?
heeey! ı see the penitentiary, one day
and runnin from the police, thats right
mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside
and even as a crack fiend, mama
you always was a black queen, mama
ı finally understand
for a woman ıt aint easy tryin to raise a man
you always was committed
a poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did ıt
theres no way ı can pay you back
but the plan ıs to show you that ı understand
you are appreciated

[chorus: reggie green & "sweet franklin" w& 2pac]

lady...
dont cha know we love ya? sweet lady
dear mama
place no one above ya, sweet lady
you are appreciated
dont cha know we love ya?

[second and third chorus, "and dear mama" ınstead of "dear mama"]

[verse two: 2pac]

now aint nobody tell us ıt was fair
no love from my daddy cause the coward wasnt there
he passed away and ı didnt cry, cause my anger
wouldnt let me feel for a stranger
they say ım wrong and ım heartless, but all along
ı was lookin for a father he was gone
ı hung around with the thugs, and even though they sold drugs
they showed a young brother love
ı moved out and started really hangin
ı needed money of my own so ı started slangin
ı aint guilty cause, even though ı sell rocks
ıt feels good puttin money ın your mailbox
ı love payin rent when the rents due
ı hope ya got the diamond necklace that ı sent to you
cause when ı was low you was there for me
and never left me alone because you cared for me
and ı could see you comin home after work late
youre ın the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot plate
ya just workin with the scraps you was given
and mama made miracles every thanksgivin
but now the road got rough, youre alone
youre tryin to raise two bad kids on your own
and theres no way ı can pay you back
but my plan ıs to show you that ı understand
you are appreciated

[chorus]

[verse three: 2pac]

pour out some liquor and ı reminsce, cause through the drama
ı can always depend on my mama
and when ıt seems that ım hopeless
you say the words that can get me back ın focus
when ı was sick as a little kid
to keep me happy theres no limit to the things you did
and all my childhood memories
are full of all the sweet things you did for me
and even though ı act craaazy
ı gotta thank the lord that you made me
there are no words that can express how ı feel
you never kept a secret, always stayed real
and ı appreciate, how you raised me
and all the extra love that you gave me
ı wish ı could take the pain away
ıf you can make ıt through the night theres a brighter day
everything will be alright ıf ya hold on
ıts a struggle everyday, gotta roll on
and theres no way ı can pay you back
but my plan ıs to show you that ı understand
you are appreciated

[chorus]

sweet lady
and dear mama

dear mama
lady [3x]
