I was looking for God at my grandmama's house
Underneath the cushions on a couch
I looked all around, side to side, up and down
That man, no where to be found

So I called my grandmama on the phone
Said, "Old lady you best get home
'Cause God ain't where you said he would be
And there's something that I really need
To speak with him about immediately"

She said, "Boy tell granny what's wrong
Is there something I can do"
I said, "Big mama now it's a sensitive issue
And Lord knows I don't wanna worry you
But I need somebody to talk to"

It done been 26 years, 17 days
Been to 5 different prisons, got 2 babies on the way
And they say, "It'll be a waste of time to pray"
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway

It done been 26 years, 17 days
Been to 5 different prisons, got 2 babies on the way
And they say, "It'll be a waste of time to pray"
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway

I done smoked weed with the best of y'all
Shot at all the rest of y'all
My heart hurts like an old man with high cholesterol
The preacher said that I'm the dirtiest dude he ever saw

Shouldn't even be livin' and he a Christian
Should've been dead like 17 times from 17 crimes I committed
Took 'em all to trial and got aquited
Left wavin' my middle finger in the air
Whispered in the prosecutors' ear
(Yeah I did it)

I done stole everything from dreams to wedding rings
Auctioned off my soul for material things
But lately it's been kinda botherin' me
I guess that turtle always catches up with the rabbit eventually

It done been 26 years, 17 days
Been to 5 different prisons, got 2 babies on the way
And they say, "It'll be a waste of time to pray"
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway

It done been 26 years, 17 days
Been to 5 different prisons got 2 babies on the way
And they say, "It'll be a waste of time to pray"
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway

(Somebody loves you, baby)
Somebody loves you girl, loves you
(Somebody loves you, baby)
Well you think no one does, somebody loves you, babe
(Somebody loves you, baby)
Oh, somebody

(Somebody loves you, baby)
Somebody loves, somebody cares for you, somebody does, yo
(Somebody loves you, baby)
Ooh, my problem's you
(Somebody loves you, baby)
'Coz it ain't no [Incomprehensible] there's still a chance, still a way
(Somebody loves you, baby)
That somebody loves you, somebody cares for you, oh
