Po Folks By Nappy Roots Lyrics

Po Folks By Nappy Roots by Nappy Roots  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Po Folks By Nappy Roots All my life been po'
But it really don't matter no mo'
And they wonder, why we act this way
Nappy Boys gon' be okay

All my life been po'
But it really don't matter no mo'
And they wonder, why we act this way
Nappy Roots gon' be okay, okay

Came in the game, plain ya see
Average man, when the rest was ashamed to be
Nappy head and all, ain't no changin' me

So, rough it was, downright wrong I tell ya
Nobody never gave us nothin' but tough time and made us somethin'
Different stretch of road, new somethin' to see
Every state on the map, a different somethin' to eat

Daps and handshakes, it meant nuttin' for real
Everybody makin' a killin' man, showin' no feelin's
Walkin' off collectin' pay, it's the way of the world
Can't change it, so I guess I'm gon' pray for the world

Sometimes, I ask myself, was I made for the world?
I scream this to you and I say it to the world
Nappy then, Nappy now, Nappy for a bit
Knee-deep, head over heels in this country

All my life been po'
But it really don't matter no mo'
And they wonder, why we act this way
Nappy Boys gon' be okay

All my life been po'
But it really don't matter no mo'
And they wonder, why we act this way
Nappy Roots gon' be okay, okay

Even though I picture better days
I'm thankful for the chance I got to say, “Amen”
The Lord, done blessed me with his grace, I wish this day would never end
We represent the slums, where we from, we feel they bump
Polish shot off on these presidents and hard times they go and come

Some take up off without the chance to make it at all
Who woulda thought Skinny'd be the one that's makin' this call
Lord, help me out, tell me where I went wrong
I'm tryna find a righteous path although it's never been long

I gotta do it for my sons, they tellin' me, "Daddy, be strong"
We gonna make it through these hard times
Even though they go and they come
Ya, absolutely right, for somethin' happen to me on last Tuesday night
It's plain as day, man, they

With this World Trade, now, brave any order [Incomprehensible]
Better make it home when nothin' seems to matter
That's when, see, everything can go, any which way
They got me fooled, see the Henny with the J
Front po'ch, chillin' broke, country folk, I'm Nappy with my ways, yo

All my life been po'
But it really don't matter no mo'
And they wonder why we act this way
Nappy Boys gon' be okay

All my life been po'
But it really don't matter no mo'
And they wonder why we act this way
Nappy Roots gon' be okay, okay

It's a blessin', we woke up this mornin'
All my colored folk stressin', come let's join hands
Got to cope with the pressures of bein' po' man
Poppa taught me an order, survive for no man

Nappy blossomed from the roots, henceforth we gon' stand
Prophet grew from a juvenile to a grown man
Ya gotta take responsibility for ya own man
Zonin', two blunts a mo'nin', by sunrise sometimes

I love to hear my woman moanin', it's on again
Damn, I hope you play this song again
The soul cleansin', the melody just read my end
Not a lot of things but usually just appendin'

[Incomprehensible] searchin' for Benjamins
Saw my folks locked in the tenements
And it don't make any sense, what? Children and sentencin'
Broadcastin' from the slums, that's why I'm writin' these sentences
Just lower my income, what? Though we ain't finish it

All my life been po'
But it really don't matter no mo'
And they wonder, why we act this way
Nappy Boys gon' be okay

All my life been po'
But it really don't matter no mo'
And they wonder, why we act this way
Nappy Roots gon' be okay, okay
