Song Lyrics

You are appreciated

[Verse One: 2Pac]

When I was a young me and my mama had beef

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 could take my mama`s place

Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool

with the big boys, breakin all the rules

I shed tears with my baby sister

Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids

And even though we had different daddys, the same drama

When things went wrong we`d blame mama

I reminice on the stress I caused, it was hell

Huggin` on my mama from a jail cell

And who`d think in elementary?

Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day

And runnin from the police, that`s right

Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside

And even as a crack fiend, mama

You always was a black queen, mama

I finally understand

for a woman it ain`t easy tryin to raise a man

You always was committed

A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it

There`s no way I can pay you back

But the plan is to show you that I understand

You are appreciated

[Chorus: Reggie Green & "Sweet Franklin" w/ 2Pac]

Lady...

Don`t cha know we love ya? Sweet lady

Dear mama

Place no one above ya, sweet lady

You are appreciated

Don`t cha know we love ya?

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

[Verse Two: 2Pac]

Now ain`t nobody tell us it was fair

No love from my daddy cause the coward wasn`t there

He passed away and I didn`t cry, cause 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 slangin

I ain`t guilty cause, even though I sell rocks

It feels good puttin money in your mailbox

I love payin rent when the rents due

I hope ya got the diamond necklace that I sent to you

Cause when I was low you was there for me

And never left me alone because you cared for me

And I could see you comin home after work late

You`re in the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot plate

Ya just workin with the scraps you was given

And mama made miracles every Thanksgivin

But now the road got rough, you`re alone

You`re tryin to raise two bad kids on your own

And there`s no way I can pay you back

But my plan is to show you that I understand

You are appreciated

[Chorus]

Lady...

Don`t cha know we love ya? Sweet lady

Dear mama

Place no one above ya, sweet lady

You are appreciated

Don`t cha know we love ya?



[Verse Three: 2Pac]

Pour out some liquor and I reminsce, cause through the drama

I can always depend on my mama

And when it seems that I`m hopeless

You say the words that can 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 all 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 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 through the night there`s a brighter day

Everything will be alright if ya hold on

It`s a struggle everyday, gotta roll on

And there`s no way I can pay you back

But my plan is to show you that I understand

You are appreciated


[Chorus]

Lady...

Don`t cha know we love ya? Sweet lady

Dear mama

Place no one above ya, sweet lady

You are appreciated

Don`t cha know we love ya?


Sweet lady

And dear mama

Dear mama
