Dry Your Eyes

Album: Sean Kingston (2007)
  • Mommy just dry your eyes, mommy don't you cry
    I know we've been through hard times and the struggles
    And I just wanna tell you I love you

    Only fifteen put under pressure
    First month 27th day
    They took away my mother
    I was left to be raised by my brother

    Taught to be a hustler
    Mommy gone gotta stick together
    Stay strong through the stormy weather
    Became a top seller, look how we stacking this cheddar
    When you jump mommy life would be better
    Just like Rihanna you can stand under my umbrella

    You know how to make me better
    Even when we lose our cheddar
    Even through the stormy weather
    You hold me down

    Mommy just dry your eyes, mommy don't you cry
    I know we've been through hard times and the struggles
    And I just wanna tell you I love you

    Mommy just dry your eyes, mommy don't you cry
    I know we've been through hard times and the struggles
    And I just wanna tell you I love you

    Seventeen got a little money
    Feeling kinda blue
    'Cause it's looking you doing 10 to 20
    Riding being broke ain't funny

    It's all being hungry
    But I'm a keep hustling for my mommy
    Until I get rich like puffy
    Never had a blamby

    You said I can be all I can be
    Some day I'm a buy you Miami
    So when I win my Grammy
    You coming 'cause I do this for my family

    You know how to make me better
    Even when we lose our cheddar
    Even through the stormy weather
    You hold me down

    Mommy just dry your eyes, mommy don't you cry
    I know we've been through hard times and the struggles
    And I just wanna tell you I love you

    Mommy just dry your eyes, mommy don't you cry
    I know we've been through hard times and the struggles
    And I just wanna tell you I love you

    Seventeen now my mommy's gone
    Can't wait till she come back home
    Missing her face like dust 'till dawn
    While she went away
    Never think it'd be so long

    I feel like crying while I'm writing this song
    Can't wait till that day come on
    When she leave the place

    Hey whats up mom? How you doing?
    It's been about two years since I saw your face
    I miss you like crazy
    Know the money orders, the prepaid costs

    Being on my own
    No Knee, Kurt, Canino
    But I love you though
    This for you

    Mommy just dry your eyes, mommy don't you cry
    I know we've been through hard times and the struggles
    And I just wanna tell you I love you

    Mommy just dry your eyes, mommy don't you cry
    I know we've been through hard times and the struggles
    And I just wanna tell you I love you Writer/s: Evan K Bogart, Jonathan Reuven Rotem, Paul Anderson Kisean, Robert Sly Jordan
