    Lyrics

    Boys and girls wanna hear a true story
    Saturday night was at this real wild party
    They had the liquor overflowin' the cup
    About five or six strippers tryna' work for a buck
    And I took one girl outside wit' me
    Her name was Loni
    She went to Junior High wit' me
    I said, why you up in there dancin' for cash?
    I guess a whole lots changed since I seen you last
    She said
    Chorus:

    What would you do if your son was at home
    Crying all alone on the bedroom floor cuz he's hungry
    And the only way to feed him is to
    Sleep wit' 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 gotta 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 who had a baby
    That's no excuse to be livin' all crazy
    Then she looked me right square in the eye
    And said, everyday I wake up hopin' to die
    She said, nigga I know about pain cuz
    Me and my sista ran away
    So my daddy couldn't rape us
    Before I was a teenager
    I'd been through more shit, you can't relate to

    Repeat Chorus

    (Yo hold up, hold up, something ain't soundin right you mean shorty
    couldn't go out and get a job
    I know this mad shorty going through the same thang
    if I ever ran into your girl I would say)

    Hold Up...
    What would you do?
    Get up on my feet and let go oF every excuse
    What would you do?
    Cuz I wouldn't want my baby, to go through what I went through.
    C'mon, what would you do?
    Get up on my feet, stop making tired excuses
    What would you do?
    Girl I know if my mother can do it, baby you can do it.

    Oooo, Oooo, oooo_(yea, yea, yea, yea)

    Repeat Chorus

    What would you do if your son was at home
    Crying all alone on the bedroom floor cuz he's hungry
    And the only way to feed him is to
    Sleep wit' 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 gotta job now
    So for you this is just a good time
    But for me this is what I call life (Come On)

    Repeat Chorus
