  • There once was a ma that wanted her
    There once was a pa that wanted her

    I know shes confused, shes my blood sister
    She told me the blues as she start to shiver
    Only a child in the middle of a war
    Shes a problem child now because of a divorce

    Hey ma and pa
    What the hell is wrong with y'all
    Hey ma and pa
    What the hell is wrong with y'all

    Well there's a lot of money
    For all the attorneys

    Its just not a fight for child custody
    cause ma and pas revenge
    Is making little sister bleed
    Fussin' and fightin' through a family life
    Make her wanna take drugs and be out of line

    Hey ma and pa
    What the hell is wrong with y'all
    Hey ma and pa
    What the hell is wrong with y'all

    Fighting for love on an angels feather
    Why don't y'all get your shit together

    Well its three the hard way
    Doin' it the wrong way
    Ma hates pa, pa hates ma
    Little sister say
    What the hey!

    Well there's an evil streak there
    With a righteous leak I fear

    That's why a child goes astray
    To live a life another day
    Mom and pop in a family fury
    Brother tried to say little sister, don't worry

    Hey ma and pa
    What the hells wrong with y'all
    Hey ma and pa
    What the hells wrong with y'all
    Hey ma and pa
    Why'd the family rise and fall
    Hey ma and pa

    Well its three the hard way
    Doin' it the wrong way
    Ma hates pa, pa hates ma
    Little sister say
    What the hey!

    Hey ma and pa
    What the hells wrong with y'all
    Hey ma and pa
    What the hells wrong with y'all
    Hey ma and pa
    What the hells wrong with y'all
    Fighting for love on an angels feather
    Why don't y'all get your shit together Writer/s: ANGELO CHRISTOPHER MOORE, KENDALL JONES, KENDALL REY JONES
