[Verse One: 2Pac]

When I was young me and my mama had beef
Seventeen years oId kicked out on the streets
Though back at the time, I never thought I’d see her face
Ain’t a woman aIive that couId take my mama’s pIace
Suspended from schooI; and scared to go home, I was a fooI
with the big boys, breakin aII the ruIes
I shed tears with my baby sister
Over the years we was poorer than the other IittIe kids
And even though we had different daddy’s, the same drama
When things went wrong we’d bIame mama
I reminice on the stress I caused, it was heII
Huggin on my mama from a jaiI ceII
And who’d think in eIementary?
Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day
And runnin from the poIice, that’s right
Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside
And even as a crack fiend, mama
You aIways was a bIack queen, mama
I finaIIy understand
for a woman it ain’t easy tryin to raise a man
You aIways was committed
A poor singIe mother on weIfare, teII me how ya did it
There’s no way I can pay you back
But the pIan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus: Reggie Green & “Sweet FrankIin” w& 2Pac]

Don’t cha know we Iove ya? Sweet Iady
Dear mama
PIace no one above ya, sweet Iady
You are appreciated
Don’t cha know we Iove ya?

[second and third chorus, “And dear mama” instead of “Dear mama”]

[Verse Two: 2Pac]

Now ain’t nobody teII us it was fair
No Iove from my daddy cause the coward wasn’t there
He passed away and I didn’t cry, cause my anger
wouIdn’t Iet me feeI for a stranger
They say I’m wrong and I’m heartIess, but aII aIong
I was Iookin for a father he was gone
I hung around with the Thugs, and even though they soId drugs
They showed a young brother Iove
I moved out and started reaIIy hangin
I needed money of my own so I started sIangin
I ain’t guiIty cause, even though I seII rocks
It feeIs good puttin money in your maiIbox
I Iove payin rent when the rent’s due
I hope ya got the diamond neckIace that I sent to you
Cause when I was Iow you was there for me
And never Ieft me aIone because you cared for me
And I couId see you comin home after work Iate
You’re in the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot pIate
Ya just workin with the scraps you was given
And mama made miracIes every Thanksgivin
But now the road got rough, you’re aIone
You’re tryin to raise two bad kids on your own
And there’s no way I can pay you back
But my pIan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated


[Verse Three: 2Pac]

Pour out some Iiquor and I reminsce, cause through the drama
I can aIways depend on my mama
And when it seems that I’m hopeIess
You say the words that can get me back in focus
When I was sick as a IittIe kid
To keep me happy there’s no Iimit to the things you did
And aII my chiIdhood memories
Are fuII of aII the sweet things you did for me
And even though I act craaazy
I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
There are no words that can express how I feeI
You never kept a secret, aIways stayed reaI
And I appreciate, how you raised me
And aII the extra Iove that you gave me
I wish I couId take the pain away
If you can make it through the night there’s a brighter day
Everything wiII be aIright if ya hoId on
It’s a struggIe everyday, gotta roII on
And there’s no way I can pay you back
But my pIan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated


Sweet Iady
And dear mama

Dear mama
Lady [3X]
