about

Who else do you know can fit Mya Angelo, Langston Hughes, and Bob Marley into a hook and make that shit dope!?! Bob Dylan would be proud I think...

lyrics

((Hook))
I know why the caged bird sings
I know why the raisin is in the sun
I know why Bob shot the sherif and not the deputy
Wit his gun
You know where they comin from
You know where they goin to
You know how they feel
(You know how dey feel)
You know what they wanna say
You know wht they wanna do
Lets be for real
(Lets be for real)


((Verse 1))
Its the same thangs we all feel
Your just too damn scared to do
(Too damn scared to do)
Its the same thangs that you scream.
But only to somebody like you
(To somebody like you)
Tell me what are you scared of
Are you scared of the backlash & layoffs
25 years on the job wit no days off
25 years on the job wit no pay off
They don't give a fuck doe
You screamin mercy
They sayin what foe
Why would they ever give me mercy
When it costs less just to hurt destroy and desert me

((Hook))
I know why the caged bird sings
I know why the raisin is in the sun
I know why Bob shot the sherif and not the deputy
Wit his gun
You know where they comin from
You know where they goin to
You know how they feel
(You know how dey feel)
You know what they wanna say
You know wht they wanna do
Lets be for real
(Lets be for real)

((Verse 2))
I was told that a dream is a wish that ya heart makes
We live that hustle and tht heart ache
Music sports or broke 3 the hard way
Gettin that Kraft and that parkay
Let us pray
Dear God please forgive us
We was born sinners not winners
Dear God please forgive us
We was born sinners not winners
At least that what they tell us when the dough gets slow
Not enough money too much hope
But they keep bankin
Rollin in dough
Sweat Rollin off our backs
Its all a big show
Give us more money and well give you more jobs
Help you get your house back give you more God
Here's a new president here's a new pope
Isn't that evidence that there's still hope?!?
You can still make it
Make it cross that finish line
You just gotta fake it
Then you gotta gimmie mine
Straight off the top
You can have the bottom
You wan be rich right?
Here go to college
Undergrad grad school masters and doctorates
Just keep goin while da bill gets monsterous
But You gon be rich right?
Here use these boot straps
Pull yaself up
And Ill be right back

((Hook))
I know why the caged bird sings
I know why the raisin is in the sun
I know why Bob shot the sherif and not the deputy
Wit his gun
You know where they comin from
You know where they goin to
You know how they feel
(You know how dey feel)
You know what they wanna say
You know wht they wanna do
Lets be for real
(Lets be for real)
