"What Would You Do?"
City High

Boys and girls, wanna hear a true story
Saturday night was at this real wild party
They had the liquor overflowing the cup, about
5 or 6 strippers trying to work for a buck
And I took one girl outside with me
Her name was Loni
She went to junior high with me
I said, why you up in there dancing for cash
I guess a whole lots 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
Cuz 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 smoking 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, everyday I wake up hoping to die
She said,  I know about pain cuz
Me and my sister ran away, so my daddy
Couldn't rape us, before I was a teenager
I done been through more shit
You can't even relate to

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 with a man for a little bit of money
And his daddy's gone somewhere smoking 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
Get up on my feet
And let go of every excuse
What would you do if
Cuz I wouldn't want my baby
To go through what I went through
What would you do if
Get up on my feet
Stop making tired excuses
What would you do if
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
Cuz 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 smoking 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
Cuz 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 smoking 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, come on

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 with a man for a little bit of money
And his Daddy's gone somewhere smoking rock now
In and out of lock down, I ain't got a job now
So for you this is just a good time
