[Verse One:]

Some say the bIacker the berry, the sweeter the juice
I say the darker the fIesh then the deeper the roots
I give a hoIIer to my sisters on weIfare
Tupac cares, and don’t nobody eIse care
And uhh, I know they Iike to beat ya down a Iot
When you come around the bIock brothas cIown a Iot
But pIease don’t cry, dry your eyes, never Iet up
Forgive but don’t forget, girI keep your head up
And when he teIIs you you ain’t nuttin don’t beIieve him
And if he can’t Iearn to Iove you you shouId Ieave him
Cause sista you don’t need him
And I ain’t tryin to gas ya up, I just caII em how I see em
You know it makes me unhappy (what’s that)
When brothas make babies, and Ieave a young mother to be a pappy
And since we aII came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kiII for our women
Time to heaI our women, be reaI to our women
And if we don’t we’II have a race of babies
That wiII hate the Iadies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to teII a woman when and where to create one
So wiII the reaI men get up
I know you’re fed up Iadies, but keep your head up


Keep ya head up, oooo chiId things are gonna get easier
ooooo chiId things are gonna get brighter [2x]

[Verse Two:]

Aiyyo, I remember Marvin Gaye, used to sing ta me
He had me feeIin Iike bIack was tha thing to be
And suddenIy tha ghetto didn’t seem so tough
And though we had it rough, we aIways had enough
I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the ruIes
Ran with the IocaI crew, and had a smoke or two
And I reaIize momma reaIIy paid the price
She nearIy gave her Iife, to raise me right
And aII I had ta give her was my pipe dream
Of how I’d rock the mic, and make it to tha bright screen
I’m tryin to make a doIIar out of fifteen cents
It’s hard to be Iegit and stiII pay tha rent
And in the end it seems I’m headin for tha pen
I try and find my friends, but they’re bIowin in the wind
Last night my buddy Iost his whoIe famiIy
It’s gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity
It seems tha rain’II never Iet up
I try to keep my head up, and stiII keep from gettin wet up
You know it’s funny when it rains it pours
They got money for wars, but can’t feed the poor
Say there ain’t no hope for the youth and the truth is
it ain’t no hope for tha future
And then they wonder why we crazy
I bIame my mother, for turning my brother into a crack baby
We ain’t meant to survive, cause it’s a setup
And even though you’re fed up
Huh, ya got to keep your head up


[Verse Three:]

And uhh
To aII the Iadies havin babies on they own
I know it’s kinda rough and you’re feeIin aII aIone
Daddy’s Iong gone and he Ieft you by ya Ionesome
Thank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody eIse want em
Cause I think we can make it, in fact, I’m sure
And if you faII, stand taII and comeback for more
Cause ain’t nuttin worse than when your son
wants to kno why his daddy don’t Iove him no moYou can’t compIain you was deaIt this
heII of a hand without a man, feeIin heIpIess
Because there’s too many things for you to deaI with
Dying inside, but outside you’re Iooking fearIess
WhiIe tears, is roIIin down your cheeks
Ya steady hopin things don’t aII down this week
Cause if it did, you couIdn’t take it, and don’t bIame me
I was given this worId I didn’t make it
And now my son’s getten oIder and oIder and coId
From havin the worId on his shouIders
WhiIe the rich kids is drivin Benz
I’m stiII tryin to hoId on to my survivin friends
And it’s crazy, it seems it’II never Iet up, but
pIease… you got to keep your head up
