Calm down, calm down
Baby just calm down
She use to tell me to calm down
Moms use to tell me to calm down
Baby just calm down

She use to tell me to calm down
Moms use to tell me to calm down
(She would pray that I would)
Baby just calm down
Calm down

Look, I was such a lost soul
Just wanted to be down with something
Look at your son now mommy
I amounted to something you couldn't figure out
What I had messed with the streets for
'Cause you saw my genius without a SAT score
I took drugs and laced it with things
But you a addict yourself
For you I was people, places and things
(How the fuck you thought)
Angel dust use to have me in the hallways twurked
I tried to hide it, but Visine didn't always work

I needed someone to blame in my mind
I thought if you and dad never used dope
I would a came out fine
And so I hit you hard when you threw in advice
Like what I want to talk to you about you ruined my life
You're the reason why I ended up a con and I knew it
The reason I filled my body with embomin fluid, mommy
You the reason that my life's gone illegal
The reason I'm kinda different
Don't think like normal people
Not calm

She use to tell me to calm down
Moms use to tell me to calm down
(Use to pray that I would)
Baby just calm down
You gotta hold your head up 'cause we gone make it
She use to tell me to calm down
Moms use to tell me to calm down
(You got to understand what I was going through)
Baby just calm down

Everything's gonna be alright
She use to tell me to calm down
Moms use to tell me to calm down
(But a nigga wouldn't)
Baby just calm down
You gotta hold your head up
'Cause we gone make it y'all

Listen, ain't shit like seeing your moms cryin' on the floor
Knowing you the reason why she ain't aight no more
But so young, I was like whatever
You use to chase me through the house
With the knife like get your life together
Fucking drugs, how could I ever amp on you
And what made me think that I could lay my hands on you
I'm not surprised that you mad at me
Much as you hated my father
Your youngest son is just like his daddy

Mommy I live life rude, how could you not understand it
On the same note I'm just like you
I got moms sensitivity, my fathers balls
His humor, his g yet my heart is yours
Fuck school, 'cause I had my major
Come to grips that it ain't so much the drugs
It's the addict behavior
(No)
Was it the dic charge, the cut that came with it
Wasn't really the smokin', but the rush that came with it
(Wasn't calm people)

She use to tell me to calm down
Calm down
(But a nigga wouldn't)
Baby just calm down
You gotta hold your head up
'Cause we gone make it y'all
(Do it with me people)
Calm down, calm down
(Try to understand it)
Baby just calm down

(Those kind of things)
Everything's gonna be alright
Calm down
(Just bare with me for a, for a brief moment y'all)
Calm down
Baby just calm down
You gotta hold your head up 'cause we gone make it y'all

I felt so alone, I had a crew but so what
Then when Angela stabbed me guess who showed up
And when people said Id always be ill and twisted
And when the therapist had told us that the pills would fix it
Was sick of bein' sick, I was finally hurt
With all the prayin' that you did ma, it finally worked
God gave you a son back, I won't offend you again
Won't let the disease turn me against you again

Use to be high as ever
(But I)
Joey Jr. got his life together
As a result, now we tighter than ever
So blessed, so grateful to be seein' tomorrow
(see the whole world)
That's why I can't take a drink, not if even a swallow
I can't picture me twisted like what I'm a do now
Haters I can't stop yet my mothers to proud
Secure now, don't need to be down with nothing
Look at your son now mommy
I amounted to somethin'
I'm so calm

Calm down, calm down
(But a nigga wouldn't calm down)
Baby just calm down
You gotta hold your head up 'cause we gone make it y'all
(Hold up)
She use to tell me to calm down
(Use to pray that I would)
Calm down
(But I couldn't, I couldn't, couldn't do it)
Baby just calm down

(Nothing heals like time people)
Everything's gonna be alright
(Understand that)
Calm down, calm down
(Fucking miracle)
Baby just calm down
You gotta hold your head up
'Cause we gone make it y'all
(They said I wouldn't reach 21 y'all, I'm still standing)

Calm down
Thanks ma
Calm down
I couldn't do it without you
Calm down, calm down
You are appreciated
Calm down
Fa sho
Calm down
It's a slow process y'all
One day at a time though
To get beautiful
