Lyrics Dear Mama

You are appreciated
When I was young me and my mama had beefs seventeen 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 can take my mama's place
Suspended from school scared to go home I was a fool
With the big boyz breakin' all the rules
I shed tears with my baby sister
Over the years we was poorer than 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 would think in elementary
Hey I'd see the penitentiary one day
Runnin' from the police that's right
Mama'd catch me put a whippin' to my backside
And even as a crack fiend, mama
Ya always was a black queen, mama
I finally understand for a woman it ain't easy try'n to raise a man
You always was committed a poor single mother on welfare
Tell me how you did it
There's no way
I could pay you back
But the plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated
Dear mama
You are appreciated
No 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 lookin' 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 slingin'
I ain't guilty 'cos even though I sell rocks
It feels good puttin' money in your mailbox
I love payin' 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
And never left me alone 'cos you care for me
And I can see you comin' home after work late
You're in the kitchen trying to fix us a hot plate
Jus' workin' with the scraps you was given
And mama made miracles every Thanksgiving
But now the road got rough, you're alone
Try'n to raise two bad kids on your own
And there's no way
I could pay you back
But the plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated
Dear mama
You are appreciated
Pour out some liquor and I reminisce
'Cos thru the drama I can always depend on my mama
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
You say the words that could 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 the sweet things you did for me
And even though I act crazy
I gotta thank the Lord that 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 thru the night there's a brighter day
Everything will be all right if you hold on
It's a struggle everyday gotta roll on
And there's no way
I could pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated
Dear mama
You are appreciated
Dear mama
You are appreciated
Dear mama
You are appreciated
