She was 14 and he was 24
Shorty claimed she never had sex before
He's driving Benz and got a lot of dough
He takes her to the movies and buys her Nike's, yo

And makes sure she think that she got it all
Ain't even recognizing the signs of a booty call
Better listen to what I'm telling y'all
Got to show her what she's worth

It makes me wanna cry
'Cause the shorty's being treated just like a woman
It makes me wanna cry
'Cause her parents ain't even trying to confront him

It makes me wanna cry
Black people we need to show our children a little loving
It makes me wanna cry
Get back in the church read your Bibles, get out the struggle
It makes me wanna cry

Ooh, ooh

Momma is trickin' to feed the baby, yo
'Cause daddy took the money and put it up his nose
He hits the hustler up for some credit yo
But never took the time to go buy some baby clothes

She's so adorable but she's on her own
Three months old and they left her home alone
Fire brakes out the little baby burns
Tell me when will we learn?

It makes me wanna cry
'Cause the baby didn't ask for all this trouble
It makes me wanna cry
'Cause the parents didn't see this baby suffer

It makes me wanna cry, ooh yeah
Black people we need to show our children a little loving
Makes me wanna cry
Get back in the church and read your Bibles, get out the struggle
It makes me wanna cry

Yo listen up
'Cause I done been all around the world
Every city has a ghetto

It makes me wanna cry
Nothin' but abandoned buildings
Look at the way my people living

It makes me wanna cry
Done been to so many places
Don't see no smile up on they faces

It makes me wanna cry
You got to get it together
So your life can be much better

Oh cry
This is going out to all the hoods around the world
Don't it make you wanna cry?
'Cause black people we need to
Got to show our children some lovin'

You got to get back in church and study the word
'Cause you know it will save you
You don't have to cry

You don't have to cry no more, don't cry
You don't have to cry no more, don't cry
You don't have to cry no more, don't cry
You don't have to cry no more, don't cry
