Smile Mama, Smile

Album: Black Market (2015)
  • I just wanna see my mama smile
    Here I go

    I went unconscious, I woke up to see my mama smile
    She told me no more promethazine, that'll make her proud
    Think about it, damn I had to think about it
    Gimme a second, mama, lemme think about it
    I went unconscious, I woke up to see my mama smile
    She told me no more promethazine, that'll make her proud
    Think about it, damn I had to think about it
    Gimme a second, mama, lemme think about it
    Never had the chance to tell my dad I was a Yankee fan
    True love is unconditional, money don't make a man
    First time me in a batting cage, I knew I had a gift
    Which I had to skip, I'm at the car wash trying to make a tip
    Positivity is all I got to give
    When we was kids, it was still now it's time to live
    That's why I throw a pinkie ring up when I post a pic
    It's for my niggas on they dick, look what this nigga did
    Think about it, think about it
    40 M's in my Timbs, still ridin' rims
    Word on the streets, they say that nigga get a lot of cake
    I take the time, I kiss both cheeks on my mamas face

    Just smile!
    The world had to make me a man, but I'll always be your child!
    Mama just smile!
    Most importantly, I want you to be proud! Mama just smile!

    No I never really mind that we caught the bus
    Or that we always stand in line, I'm talkin' all of us
    It made me stronger, it made me quicker on my feet
    All the gain she gave me the love that she would teach
    Turn me onto real estate we bought us 50 homes
    Who really gonna be your shoulder when your kid is gone
    Who really gonna be your rider when the Bentley's gone?
    Or when they singin' like a choir in a Christmas song?
    Mama! Always depend on my mama
    Just bought another Benz for my mama
    I always keep it real with my mama
    She harder than a rock
    Throw her parties on the block for my mama

    Just smile!
    The world had to make me a man, but I'll always be your child!
    Mama just smile!
    Most importantly, I want you to be proud! Mama just smile!

    Makes me happy just to see a smile on her face
    Perfect mother and I love you, tell you every day
    You always was a black queen, mama
    You showed me all the best things, mama

    I am at love
    Your flesh and your blood
    Unconditional love inside of me
    Mama, just smile
    Mama, just smile
