What Would You Do - City High

Boys and girls wanna hear a true story
Saturday night was at this real wild party
They had the liquor overflowing the cup
About five six strippers tryin ta work for a buck and I
Took one girl outside with me
Her name was Lonnie she went to junior high with me
I said why you up in there dancin for cash
I guess your whole life's changes since I've seen you last.
she said

Chorus :
What would you do if you son was at home
Crying all alone on the bedroom floor cuz he's hungry
And the only way to feed him is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money
And his daddy's gone
Somewhere smokin rock now in and out of lock down
I ain't got a job now
So for you this is just a good time but for me this is what I call life

Girl you ain't the only one with a baby but that's no excuse to be living all crazy
Then she looked me right square in the eye
And said everday I wake up hoping to die
She said n_gga I know about pain cuz me
And my sister ran away so my daddy couldn't rape us
Before I was a teenager, I'da been through more sh_t you can't even relate to


Ooh, then she said (what would you do)
Get up on my feet and let go of every excuse (what would you do)
Cuz I wouldn't want my baby to go through what I went through (what would you do)
Get up on my feet I'm tired of excuses (what would you do)
Girl I know if my mother can do it baby you can do it

[Chorus] x 3
