SHE CAN'T EVER REMEMBER, A TIME WITHOUT HEARING
SHE CAN'T EVER REMEMBER, A TIME WITHOUT HEARING
HER MOM SAY THAT MEN ARE NO GOOD
HOW THEY ONLY WANT SEX, AND TO GET IT, THEY PLAY WITH YOUR HEAD
"GIRL, DON'T FALL FOR NO MAN", MOM SAID POINTING HER FINGER
A BITSHE CAN'T EVER REMEMBER, A TIME WITHOUT HEARING
HER MOM SAY THAT MEN ARE NO GOOD
HOW THEY ONLY WANT SEX, AND TO GET IT, THEY PLAY WITH YOUR HEAD
"GIRL, DON'T FALL FOR NO MAN", MOM SAID POINTING HER FINGER
A BITTERNESS HEARD IN HER VOICE
CHOOSE A MAN WITH SOME MONEY, OR POWER, TO LAY WITH INSTEAD
WITH THIS DEEPLY INGRAINED IN HER SPIRIT
SHE CLOSED PATHWAYS THAT LED TO HER HEART
ON HER MOMMA'S INSISTENT ADVICE, ALL HER ACTIONS WERE DRAWN
SHE PASSED OVER ALL MEN WHO MIGHT LOVE HER
FOR NO VALUE IN LOVE, WAS SHE TAUGHT
BUT THREE CHILDREN LATER, THE MEN WITH THE MONEY, WERE GONE
HER CHILDREN ALL HAD DIFFERENT DADDIES
WHO HAD NO LOVE FOR THEM OR FOR HER
SHE HAD CHOSEN THESE MEN CAUSE HER MOMMA, HAD TOLD HER SHE SHOULD
BUT SHE NOW FACED THE COLD CONTRADICTION
THAT SHE FOUND IN HER MOMMA'S ADVICE
HER LIFE DID NOT TURN OUT THE WAY, THAT HER MOM SAID IT WOULD
SO THEN THERE BECAME AN AWARENESS
OF HER MOM'S PHILOSOPHICAL VIEW
THERE WAS PAIN AND FRUSTRATION AND ANGER, FROM CHOICES MOM MADE
FOR HER MOM WHO HAD MADE THESE BAD CHOICES
PASSED THE BLAME ON THE MEN, IN HER LIFE
THE MEN, THAT GRANDMOM SAID CHOOSE, AND POOR MOMMA HAD PAID
YOU SEE ANGER "PERPETUATES" ANGER
LIKE A CANCER, IT GROWS AND IT SPREADS
IT WAS PASSED DOWN FROM GRANDMOM TO MOMMA, THEN MOMMA TO DAUGHTER
FROM GRANDMOM TO GRANDCHILD THIS ANGER WAS PASSED
'CAUSE NO ONE THOUGHT, TO BREAK THIS CHAIN
AND THE HOPE OF WHAT "MIGHT'VE BEEN", SWALLOWED, LIKE BITTERSWEET WATER.
TERNESS HEARD IN HER VOICE
CHOOSE A MAN WITH SOME MONEY, OR POWER, TO LAY WITH INSTEAD
WITH THIS DEEPLY INGRAINED IN HER SPIRIT
SHE CLOSED PATHWAYS THAT LED TO HER HEART
ON HER MOMMA'S INSISTENT ADVICE, ALL HER ACTIONS WERE DRAWN
SHE PASSED OVER ALL MEN WHO MIGHT LOVE HER
FOR NO VALUE IN LOVE, WAS SHE TAUGHT
BUT THREE CHILDREN LATER, THE MEN WITH THE MONEY, WERE GONE
HER CHILDREN ALL HAD DIFFERENT DADDIES
WHO HAD NO LOVE FOR THEM OR FOR HER
SHE HAD CHOSEN THESE MEN CAUSE HER MOMMA, HAD TOLD HER SHE SHOULD
BUT SHE NOW FACED THE COLD CONTRADICTION
THAT SHE FOUND IN HER MOMMA'S ADVICE
HER LIFE DID NOT TURN OUT THE WAY, THAT HER MOM SAID IT WOULD
SO THEN THERE BECAME AN AWARENESS
OF HER MOM'S PHILOSOPHICAL VIEW
THERE WAS PAIN AND FRUSTRATION AND ANGER, FROM CHOICES MOM MADE
FOR HER MOM WHO HAD MADE THESE BAD CHOICES
PASSED THE BLAME ON THE MEN, IN HER LIFE
THE MEN, THAT GRANDMOM SAID CHOOSE, AND POOR MOMMA HAD PAID
YOU SEE ANGER "PERPETUATES" ANGER
LIKE A CANCER, IT GROWS AND IT SPREADS
IT WAS PASSED DOWN FROM GRANDMOM TO MOMMA, THEN MOMMA TO DAUGHTER
FROM GRANDMOM TO GRANDCHILD THIS ANGER WAS PASSED
'CAUSE NO ONE THOUGHT, TO BREAK THIS CHAIN
AND THE HOPE OF WHAT "MIGHT'VE BEEN", SWALLOWED, LIKE BITTERSWEET WATER.
