Seventeen by Musiq Soulchild
Five foot seven with light green eyes
Body built like a woman over twenty-five
Plus she push the whip that the average women couldn't get
Less she worked about two nine to five's
Girly played the game just a little too mature
She damn near had everything I was looking for
But things seemed shady
When I asked my lady to meet at the club
She had trouble at the door
That's when I found out that
She was only seventeen years old
And I couldn't see her no more
I ain't tryin to see myself locked up
For knockin up some young joan
How could I explain this situation to my family
And all of my boys
I'm sorry shorty
But you've got to get gone
I tried to cut her off
But she wasn't having it
She kept telling me her age didn't mean sh--
And that's when she started to cry
Baby I need you in my life
And without you I just couldn't handle it
So what's a brother to do
Either way I lose
I could just say my piece
Or p**s off her peeps
And talk it out with the boys in blue
Cause when it comes down to it
She was just seventeen years old
And I was dead wrong from the door
