Yesterday morning was crazy I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe That shit is in stone, sealed and signed She not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time And all it took was one time Shit, we only met two times, two times And both times were nothing like the new times Now it's rough times I'm out here on front lines Just trying to make sure that I see him sometimes It's breaking my spirit Single father, I hate when I hear it I used to challenge my parents on every album Now I'm embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent Always promised the family unit I wanted it to be different because I've been through it But this is the harsh truth now Fairy tales are saved for the bedtime stories I tell you now I don't want you worry about whose house you live at Or who loves you more, or who's not there Who did what to who 'fore you got here Now, look, I'm too proud to let that come between me and you now Realize I got to think for two now I gotta make it, I better make it I promise if I'm not dead then I'm dedicated This the first positive DNA we ever celebrated I can't forget the looks on they faces Got the news in Miami that we all now got ones that we raisin' Tell Gelo bring some, uh, Rosé and the Baccarats out For our cheers to the next generation But this champagne toast is short-lived I got an empty crib in my empty crib I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick I think he must've brought you like twenty gifts Your mother say you growing so fast That they don't even really fit But man, you know, I still had to get it for my boy though, you know You haven't met your grandfather yet, that nigga a trip He probably coulda did stand-up Yeah, but at the same time he's a stand up And that's how you gon' be when it's time to man up October baby for irony sake, of course I got this 11 tatted for somebody, now it's yours And believe me, I can't wait to get a hunnid more Sorry I'm ventin', tryna cover ground They said that in two weeks you're supposed to come in town Hopefully by the time you hear this Me and your mother will have come around Instead of always cutting each other down
God willing, I got a good feeling You got a good spirit We'll talk more when you hear this My G
No one to guide me I'm all alone No one to cry on I need shelter from the rain To ease the pain I'm changing from boy to a man No one to guide me I'm all alone No one to cry on I need shelter from the rain To ease the pain I'm changing from boy to a man I'm all alone No one to cry on I need shelter from the rain To ease the pain I'm changing from boy to a man

Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
