Live This One…

Girl, wipe your face, You knew he wasn’t right!

Put on a smile, you’ll make it through the night

Your, mama told you, you shouldn’t trust that boy

Now he done left you and he took your joy

Now you’re, 6 months with that baby bump

You say you love him, why are you being dumb?

No I’m not judging, I’m just being blunt

But I get it nobody understands

The struggle that you’ve been through with this man

In the beginning it was wonderland

All in the streets kissing and hold hands

He stole heart cause he’s the first that humped

And nowadays you just put up a front

Like girl my baby daddy ain’t no bum

But to him you were just a quick pump

And I’m judging, I’m just being blunt

Your baby growing up, he’s six now

He even got his daddy’s eyebrows

Daddy’s been M.I.A since he was two

You still ain’t told him what you’ve been through

How daddy wasn’t really feeling you

And daddy’s got his own family too

You reminisce and get the watered eyes

But looking at him brings joy to your eyes

Funny he’s crying over French fries

Just seeing that could make your problems die

Giving thanks as you look up to the sky

Cause the only thing his daddy ever did

Was blessing you with this gift of kid

And nowadays you just put up a front

Like, girl, my baby daddy ain’t no bum

But to him you were just a quick pump

And I ain’t judging, I’m just being blunt

Live your life.
