  • Yeah this one right here goes out to all the baby's mamas, mamas
    Mamas, mamas, baby mamas, mamas
    Yeah, go like this

    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times
    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times

    My baby's drama mama, don't like me
    She be doing things like having them boys come from her neighborhood
    To the studio trying to fight me
    She need to get a, piece of the American pie and take her bite out
    That's my house, I'll disconnect the cable and turn the lights out
    And let her know her grandchild is a baby, and not a paycheck
    Private school, daycare, shit medical bills I pay that
    I love your mom and everything, but see I ain't the one who laid down
    She wanna rib you up to start a custody war, my lawyers stay down
    Shit you never got a chance to hear my side of the story we was divided
    She had fish fries and cookouts for my child's birthday I ain't invited
    Despite it, I show her the utmost respect when I fall through
    All you, do is defend that lady when I call you, yeah

    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times
    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times

    Me and yo' daughter, got a special thing going on
    (We got a special kind of thing going on)
    You say it's puppy love
    We say it's full grown
    Hope that we feel this, feel this way forever
    You can plan a pretty picnic
    But you can't predict the weather, Ms. Jackson

    Ten times out of nine, now if I'm lyin', fine
    The quickest muzzle throw it on my mouth and I'll decline
    King meets queen, then the puppy love thing, together dream
    'Bout that crib with the Goodyear swing
    On the oak tree, I hope we feel like this forever
    Forever, forever, ever, forever, ever?
    Forever never seems that long until you're grown
    And notice that the day by day ruler can't be too wrong
    Ms. Jackson my intentions were good I wish I could
    Become a magician to abacadabra all the sadder
    Thoughts of me, thoughts of she, thoughts of he
    Asking what happened to the feeling that her and me
    Had, I pray so much about it need some knee, pads
    It happened for a reason one can't be, mad
    So know this, know that everything's cool
    And yes I will be present on the first day of school, and graduation

    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times
    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times

    "Look at the way he treats me"
    Shit, look at the way you treat me
    You see your little nosy-ass home girls
    Done got your ass sent up the creek G
    Without a paddle, you left to straddle
    And ride this thing on out
    Now you and your girl ain't speaking no more
    'Cause my dick all in her mouth
    Know what I'm talking about? Jealousy, infidelity, envy
    Cheating to beating, envy and to the G they be the same thing
    So who you placing the blame on, you keep on singing the same song
    Let bygones be bygones, you can go on and get the hell on
    You and your mama

    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times
    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times

    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion times
    I'm sorry Ms. Jackson (oh), I am for real
    Never meant to make your daughter cry
    I apologize a trillion timesWriter/s: Andre Benjamin, Antwan Patton, David Sheats

  • Megan from Stevenson, Al"I'm sorry Ms. Jackson! OHHHH!!!! I am fo real! Never meant meant to make yor daughter cry! I apologize a trillion times..." This is just great!
  • Geron from Louisville, Kyto Don from BG in KY. its not UNION girl its you and ya girl
  • Don from B G, KyA question about the LYRICS from the song: "Without a paddle, you left the straddle and ride this thing on out
    And the union girl aint speakin no more cuz my d_ck all in her mouth". Now who is the UNION GIRL in the song?
  • Mb from Newburgh, Nythis song is just like simon and garfunkle's mrs. robinson, the lyrics anyways, and also the movie The Graduate
  • G from Potomac, MdOriginal? 2 words for ya:
    Parliament. Funkadelic.
  • Age from C-ville, PaI completely agree with everyone here that doesn't like rap or hip hop. But Outkast is extremely talented and great songwriters. This song is complex and down to earth. One of the very few reasonable rap songs.
  • Maggie from High Bridge, Njthis is one of the best songs that i have ever heard. i'm just like a lot of the other people here, i don't listen to rap or hip-hop at all. i listen to country and classic rock. but this will always be one of my favorite songs. outkast are incredibly talented and original artists
  • Steve from Toronto, Ont., CanadaI really like this song because it points out a struggle that a lot of fathers face!
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesOriginal?! The melody in this song blatantly pilfers from Mike Oldfield's New Age classis "Ommadawn" (released in 1975). Not ahead of it's time, but nevertheless, I do like this song, it's SOOO catchy!
  • Linus from Hamilton, On, CanadaAt 3 minutes into the song, a wedding song can be very faintly heard
  • Dan from Lee, NhOutkast is the only truely great group still around except for The White Stripes. I know they're very different, but both are still awesome.
  • Marianna from Anchorage, AkI'm with everyone else on this one. I'm not a fan of hip hop or rap music, but Outkast is a-ok in my books :)
  • Katie from Miami, FlOutkast is original......and that what seperates them from other blaze hip hop artists. Andre 3000 is so way ahead of his time....very cool dude!
  • Tom from Trowbridge, EnglandI agree with everyone. I'm a rocker myself (AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, etc) but Outkast are amazing. Along with Public Enemy, Beastie Boys and Run DMC, they stand head and shoulders above all other hip-hop artists. Long may Outkast continue to brighten up our lives
  • Brendan from Colts Neck, Nji dont like rap or hip-hop at all, except for outkast. every song sounds different, and their lyrics are extremely good. plus... andre 3000 is way too cool for his own good.
  • Hunter from Atlanta, GaTo tell the truth, i don't like rap much at all, but Outkast is a great group. They are some of the only rap I listen to. They're original and have a great sound. It's pretty cool that they from Atlanta too.
  • Evan from Acworh, Gabeing from around atlanta where outkast is HUGE... i must say that this is one of their greatest songs ever! I love outkast and proud they're from georgia!!
  • Ally from Hamilton, OkI like outkast because they are original....they come up with the best lyrics and beats to their songs...i love it
    -Ally Hamilton,Ohio
  • Will from Mcallen , Txoutkast are the only rappers that have an original bone in thier bodies. all thier albums sound different from the last one and thier talent is limitless. they are true musicians.
