  • Momma said I ain't acting like her son
    'Cause I'm getting money Momma, you ain't giving me none
    You can't buy me them J's that come out tomorrow
    So get used to the things that I'm doing for dollars
    You said: "Boy, you better watch your back
    Your pops in jail, remember that"
    Momma it get like that
    You said: "Don't call me for no bail money"
    Thought I could call for anything, I thought you cared for me
    You said: "Keenon, keep that bitch out my house"
    I said: "I'm eighteen"
    You said: "This your place?" Nah, this is Section 8
    Smacked me like bah, "you little disrespectful nigga"
    Like mmm momma you lucky, lucky I can't hit ya
    "You gon' treat me like this? And you know I have seizures
    You know I take pain pills for headaches and fevers"
    Damn, now I'm feeling less than a man
    'Cause you birth me and I was actin' like I couldn't understand
    I'm sorry momma

    Momma
    Let me take some weight off your shoulders
    I'm singing to momma
    You ain't gotta worry now, them days is over

    I'm sorry momma, I know I ain't shit
    I know I lied a lot, I know I ain't slick
    Your last dollars
    Yeah, that was me who stole 'em out your purse
    (What?) yeah, I know it hurts
    I remember days we used to go to church
    I used to fall asleep, that shit used to work your nerves
    I remember when you had surgery
    In a wheelchair, hooked to IV's that hurt me
    You're like Superwoman in my eyes
    You do a lot to be blind out of one eye
    But you ain't let that hold you back
    You win on your marathon and run your laps
    I broke into houses and sold stolen things for you
    I know that ain't the type of things your son should do
    You gave birth to me, I love you and thank you
    Just know you're well-appreciated

    Momma
    Let me take some weight off your shoulders
    I'm singing to momma
    You ain't gotta worry now, them days is over Writer/s: DIJON ISAIAH MCFARLANE, KEENON DAQUAN RAY JACKSON, MARLOW BARROW, TERRACE MARTIN, TYRONE WILLIAM GRIFFIN JR.
