    "Dear Mama" Lyrics

    Sayri Tupac

    You are appreciated

    When I was young me and my mama had beef
    17 years old kicked out on the streets
    Though back at the time I never thought I'd see her face
    Ain't a woman alive that could take my mamas place
    Suspended from school, scared to go home
    I was a fool with the big boys, breaking all the rules
    Shed tears with my baby sister
    Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
    And even though we had different daddies
    The same drama, when things went wrong we blamed mama

    I reminisce on the stress I caused, it was hell
    Huggin' on my mama from a jail cell
    And who'd think in elementary, hey I'd see the penitentiary
    One day, running from the police that's right
    Mama catch me, put a whoopin' to my backside
    And even as a crack fiend mama
    You always was a black queen mama
    I finally understand for a woman it ain't easy trying to raise a man
    You always was committed, poor single mother on welfare
    Tell me how you did it, there's no way I can pay you back
    But the plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated

    Lady, don't ya know we love ya
    Sweet lady, place no one above ya
    Sweet lady, don't ya know we love ya

    Now ain't nobody tell us it was fair
    No love for my daddy 'cos the coward wasn't there
    He passed away and I didn't cry
    'Cos my anger wouldn't let me feel for a stranger
    They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless
    But all along I was looking for a father, he was gone
    I hung around with the thugs and even though they sold drugs
    They showed a young brother love
    I moved out and started really hangin'
    I needed money of my own so I started slangin'
    I ain't guilty, 'cos even though I sell rocks
    It feels good putting money in your mailbox
    I love paying rent when the rent's due
    I hope you got the diamond necklace that I sent to you
    'Cos when I was low you was there for me
    You never left me alone 'cos you cared for me
    And I can see you coming home after work, late
    You're in the kitchen tryin' to fix us a hot plate

    Just working with the scraps you was given
    And mama made miracles every Thanksgiving
    But now the road got rough, you're alone
    Tryin' to raise two bad kids on your own
    And there's no way I can pay you back
    But my plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated


    Pour out some liquor and I reminisce
    'Cos through the drama, I can always depend on my mama
    And when it seems that I'm hopeless
    You say the words that can get me back in focus
    When I was sick as a little kid
    To keep me happy, there's 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 I act crazy
    I got to thank the Lord the you made me
    There are no words that can express how I feel
    You never kept a secret, always stayed real
    And I appreciate how you raised me
    And all the extra love that you gave me
    I wish I could take the pain away
    If you can make it through the night, there's a brighter day
    Everything will be alright if you hold on
    It's a struggle, everyday gotta roll on
    And there's no way I can pay you back
    But my plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated


    Sweet lady, lady, lady, lady
