What Would You Do? - City High

Boys and girls wanna hear a true story?

Saturday night I was at this real wild party

They had the liquor overflowing the cup

About 5 or 6 strippers tryin to work for a buck

And I took one girl outside with me

Her name was Lonni,

she went to junior high with me

I said, "Why you up in there dancin' for cash?

I guess a whole a lot's changed since I seen you last."

She said

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 smokin' 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 hopin' 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 been through more shit

that you can't even relate to

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 smokin' 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

 

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

Come on, what would you do?

Get up on my feet and stop making tired excuses

 

What would you do?

Girl, I know if my mother can do it,

baby you can do it

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 smokin' 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

 

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 smokin' 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

 

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 smokin' 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
