Uh, it's real, I owe you
Said I owe you
Yeah

They say the ones you take for granted you miss the most
Woke up every mornin' to grits and toast
School clothes spread at the foot of the bed
Anything I needed was there, you get it prepared

Held it down when my pops and moms ain't
Repay you in a way that stocks and bonds can't
Just think it's that same little boy that used to break rules
Spill Kool-aid on the floor

You was my father and my mother, the mother of my father
Known as my grandmother I refer to you as mama
No one calmer or considerate as you my dear
Love my parents just as much but let's get one thing clear

You raised me by choice and you didn't have to
Showed me where to go when I had to use the bathroom
Nasty that's true classy that's you
I'd give you my last breath if I had to

When I stop, look back think about my life
You gave me your love whether wrong or right
Oh, I owe you, come on, I owe you
When I was down and out and all my friends was gone
You stayed by my side never left me alone
Oh, I owe you, I owe you, I owe you
Yes, I do

Bethany, Sharron hack it kept me wearing jackets
Started triple phat mama kept with the fashions
Everlasting love couldn't ask enough
Went to school, two jobs just to have for us

Plus no child support, you did it on your own
Independent woman you the queen of my throne
Condos to one bedroom we called home
Long as you was there I was never alone

Though we had our ups and downs, it's all up now
Used to wear small frowns tear them all up now, wow
Did you imagine ma that your son
Would grow up to be this handsome huh?

No, I'm playin', I'm sayin' you the reason I exist
And for this mess you deserve pure bliss
Any wish, I'll grant it, any diss, I'll slam it
You my all, understand it's your son Nick Cannon

When I stop, look back think about my life
You gave me your love whether wrong or right
Oh, I owe you, come on, I owe you
When I was down and out and all my friends was gone
You stayed by my side never left me alone
Oh, I owe you, said I owe you, I owe you

Lord, heavenly father, I praise Your soul
Learned to love You for myself when I was eight years old
Before then I didn't about Your grace and mercy
I just knew my pops was preaching while I played in the nursery

Then he taught me that You so loved us all
That you sent Your only son to die on a cross
I once was lost but You keep finding me
I always fall but You keep reminding me

Verse John 1:9 that I'm right you see
And it'll be just fine you took a liking to me
Gotta let 'em all know you can still have fun
Lord in the Range Rove, you ride shotgun

Saved me in that crash, blocked bullets when they blast
That night at the party, though they got the homie
No you got him surely
And as for me, if it wasn't for y'all
I don't know where I would be

When I stop, look back think about my life
You gave me your love whether wrong or right
Oh, I owe you, come on, I owe you
When I was down and out and all my friends was gone
You stayed by my side never left me alone
Oh, I owe you, I owe you

When I stop, look back think about my life
You gave me your love whether wrong or right
Oh, I owe you, come on, said I owe you
When I was down and out and all my friends was gone
You stayed by my side never left me alone
Oh, I owe you, I owe you

When I stop, look back think about my life
You gave me your love whether wrong or right
Oh, I owe you, come on, I owe you
When I was down and out and all my friends was gone
You stayed by my side never left me alone
Oh, I owe you, I owe you
