Title :

Make Mama Proud


[Lil' Flip]
In elementary I used crayonseven chalk
I learned to count money before I could read and talk
And my mama told me sonyou need to shine
I couldn't stand at the backI had to lead the line
I use to make good gradesbut I talked in class
In middle school I was late when I walked in class
I the teacher ran a aronI taught the class
And what I didn't knowI was about to ask
And just because I played ballI got easy grades
And when I turned 13I got even fades
Everybody wearing Air MacsRee's and J's
But all my parents cared aboutwas B's and A's
In high schoolI picked up my pen and pad
I had dreamsof pulling up in a Benz or Jag
I had to get it on my ownI couldn't depend on dad
I had to grow up too fastbut then I'm glad
Because the stuff I know nowI wouldn't believe it
The main goals that I setI wouldn't achieve it
I'd probably be locked upor running the streets
I'd probably wouldn't have platinumin front of my teeth
I'd probably still be mockingtrying to earn a dollar
I'd probably be in the hood selling sherm or powder
But insteadI'm making bread legal dough
Going to church and staying away from these evil hoes

[Chorus - 2x]
You only got one lifeyou better do what you can
Cause when you turn thirteenyou are a man
And I can't be broke so I'ma rock the crowd
It's up to meI gotta make my mama proud

[Lil' Flip]
There's a place called heaven and a place called hell
There's a place called freedom and a place called jail
And if you go to jailthey gone treat you bad
Take your commissaryand beat you bad
So I'm staying out of troubleI'm chasing my dream
I know you see your little boy on t.v. screens
I'm blowing upyour little boy making it happen
I'm not selling dope mamaI'm making it rapping
So when you go to sleep at nightyou know I'm safe
Cause in Houston everyday somebody catching a case
Like yesterdaymy partner went to jail
And he ain't coming home until he fifty seven
He nineteenso you do the math
I got smartmanI choose to rap
So when I grow upmy kids can have a good life
That's all I wrotey'all have good night
