Song Lyrics

[Verse #1]

These ideas are nightmares to white parents

Whose worst fear is a child with dyed hair and who likes earrings

Like whatever they say has no bearing

Its so scary in a house that allows no swearing

To see him walking around with his headphones blaring

Alone in his own zone, cold and he don`t care

He`s a problem child, what bothers him all comes out

When he talks about his f**kin` dad walkin` out

`Cus he hates him so bad that he blocks him out

If he ever saw him again, he`d probably knock him out

His thoughts are whacked, he`s mad so he`s talkin` back

Talkin` black, brainwashed from rock and rap

He sags his pants, do rags and a stocking cap

His stepfather hit him so he socked him back

And broke his nose, this house is a broken home

There`s no control, he just lets his emotions go

[Chorus #1]

{C`mon} Sing with me, {Sing}, sing for the years

{Sing it} Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears {C`mon}

Sing it with me, just for today, maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away...

[Verse #2]

Entertainment is changing, intertwinin` with gangsters

In the land of the killers, a sinner`s mind is a sanctum

Only you`re unholy, only have one homie

Only this gun, lonely, `cus don`t anyone know me

But everybody just feels like they can relate

I guess words of a motherf**ka, they can be great

Or they can degrate, or even worse, they can teach hate

Its like these kids hang on every single statement we make

Like they worship us, plus all the stores ship us platinum

Now how the f**k did this metamorphosis happen?

From standin` on corners and porches just rappin`

To havin` a fortune, no more kissin` ass

But then these critics crucify you, journalists try to burn you

Fans turn on you, attorneys all want a turn at you

To get their hands on every dime you have

They want you to lose your mind every time you mad

So they can try to make you out to look like a loose canon

Any dispute, won`t hesitate to produce handguns

Thats why these prosecutors wanna convict me

Strictly just to get me off of these streets quickly

But all their kids been listenin` to me religiously

So I`m signing CDs while police fingerprint me

They`re for the judges daughter, but his grudge is against me

If I`m such a f**kin` menace, this sh*t doesn`t make sense, Pete

It`s all political, if my music is literal then I`m a criminal,

How the f**k can I raise a little girl?

I couldn`t, I wouldn`t be fit to

You`re full of sh*t too, Guerrera, that was a fist that hit you

[Chorus #1]

{C`mon} Sing with me, {Sing}, sing for the years

{Sing it} Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears {Sing it}

Sing it with me, just for today, maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away...

[Verse #3]

They say music can alter moods and talk to you

Well can it load a gun up for you and c*ck it too?

Well if it can, then the next time you assault a dude

Just tell the judge it was my fault, and I`ll get sued

See what these kids do, is hear about us totin` pistols

And they want to get one, `cus they think the sh*t`s cool

Not knowin` we`re really just protectin` ourselves

We entertainers, of course this sh*t`s affecting our sales

You ignoramus but music is reflection of self

We just explain it, and then we get our checks in the mail

It`s f**ked up ain`t it, how we can come from practically nothin`

To bein` able to have any f**kin` thing that we wanted

That`s why we sing for these kids that don`t have a thing

Except for a dream and a f**kin` rap magazine

Who post pinup pictures on their walls all day long

Idolize their favorite rappers and know all their songs

Or for anyone who`s ever been through sh*t in they lives

til` they sit and they cry at night, wishing they die

til` they throw on a rap record, and they sit and they vibe

We`re nothing to you, but we`re the f**kin` sh*t in their eyes

That`s why we seize the moment, and try to freeze it and own it

Squeeze it and hold it, `cus we consider these minutes golden

And maybe they`ll admit it when we`re gone

Just let our spirits live on, through our lyrics that you hear in our songs

And we can

[Chorus #3]

Sing with me, {Sing}, sing for the years

{Sing it}, sing for the laughter, sing for the tears, {C`mon}

Sing it with me, just for today, maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away...

[Chorus #4]

Sing with me, {Sing}, sing for the years

{Sing it}, sing for the laughter, sing for the tears, {C`mon}

Sing it with me, just for today, maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away...
