Blended Family (What You Do For Love)

  • Hey I might not really be your mother
    That don't mean that I don't really love ya
    And even though I married your father
    That's not the only reason I'm here for ya

    I think you're beautiful
    I think you're perfect
    I know how hard it gets
    But I swear it's worth it, worth it

    That's what you do, what you do, what you do
    What you do for love
    'Cause there ain't nothing, there ain't nothing
    There ain't nothing I won't do for us
    It may not be easy
    This blended family, but baby
    That's what you do, what you do, what you do
    What you do for love

    I know it started with a little drama
    I hate you had to read it in the paper
    But everything's alright with me and ya Mama
    Baby everybody here you know adores ya

    I think it's beautiful
    I think it's perfect
    I know how hard it gets
    But I swear it's worth it, worth it

    That's what you do, what you do, what you do
    What you do for love
    'Cause there ain't nothing, there ain't nothing
    There ain't nothing I won't do for us
    It may not be easy
    This blended family, but baby
    That's what you do, what you do, what you do
    What you do for love, love

    For love, for love
    I think it's, my real my true love
    'Cause you're my baby, rejoice daily
    I believe love could bring us closer than blood

    I remember having four step-moms at nine
    Loved Christmas time and birthday was fly
    Hit my sisters just for dinner 'cause the cookin' was bomb
    Her mothers supper made me love her like she took me to prom (uh)
    And shoutout to my sisters on welfare
    Flacko care, nobody else care
    And shoutout to the step-sisters and step-brothers
    And god-sisters, who eventually slept with us
    Real love, but you doin' it right, alright
    I'm here for you
    Everything's alright, alright

    That's what you do, what you do, what you do
    What you do for love (That's just what you do)
    There ain't nothing, there ain't nothing
    There ain't nothing I won't do for us (For you baby)
    It may not be easy
    This blended family but baby
    That's what you do, what you do, what you do
    What you do for love, love

    That's just what you do (for love)
    For love of the babies (for love)
    We're a blended family (for love)
    And it's alright (for love)
    Said it's alright!
