Womanopoly by Musiq Soulchild

Yo listen
I met this girl on Baltic Ave.
And you can tell how she steps on Boardwalk,
she was from Park Place
I asked what she was doing on this side of town
She said she had some taxes to pay
I figured I'd take a chance and advance to go
And find out more about her cause there's more to know
than the ways she sways
And the way she that she wears her clothes,
or the way that she plays this game so cold
She said she came up rough
And the one income household was not enough
There'd be nights she'd go to sleep cold and hungry
Cause her mom was always short on food and money
See people used to joke alot
Tease her bout her clothes not being in style
Dressed in dingy skirts and dirty sneakers,
From the finest second hand down on Oriental Ave.
But now look at her
She got this game on lock
Anything that she ever wanted
Now she got it
And I gotta say Im so proud to see
That someone like her is in control
Once she graduated Jr. High
She started working overtime
Scrubbing floors or working on assembly lines
Just so she could help her mother out
And after college they moved into Marvin's Garden
And she got a job working at the city water department
To save enough cash
To move into Community Chest condos on Pennsylvania Ave.
She fell in love with this dude name Ray
Who was a small time hustler form St Charles' Place
And he was know for always being in and out of trouble
But the problem was that he was never on her level
She argued with her mom about Ray's work
Till he got sent up state on the same say that she gave birth
But see the baby never made it
It drove her nearly crazy
And she couldn't take it
(Listen) See where she came from
Many people find it hard just to hang on
You often find them in the same place complaining
Instead of finding a better way of maintaining
She could have balled up and cry
Wish that she would die
And just gave up on trying
Instead she grind from the bottom just to make it to the bottom
Now she's on top and she's flying
Chorus x 2
