Yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, let's go

Ohh, N dey say, ohh, oh
Oh, ohh, yeah
Ohh, N dey say, ohh, oh
Oh, ohh

Hold up, stop ma, let me get a look at'cha
Damn girl, I ain't seen you since prom
Come to think about it, can't believe it's been that long
I heard your man locked down now, how long he gone?
Oh, that long? How the hell'd he get time like that
Three strikes with posession, aw, he ain't comin' back
He left you with two kids and bills all around
Plus you found out he had another chick 'cross town

It's always the darkest, ah-right before the sunrisin'
And you gotta stay strong, for the kids in they eyes and
And please don't despise, and go against all brothers
And have a hatred in your heart and take it out on another
I hate to sound Tupac-ish lil' mama, but keep ya head up
But you gon' make it, I promise, you keep your head up
And that that don't kill you only makes you stronger
And the will to succeed'll only feed the hunger, f'real, f'real, f'real
Hey

Ohh, N dey say, ohh, oh
Oh, ohh, yeah, hey
Ohh, N dey say, ohh, oh
Oh, ohh

I was at the gas station when a man walked past
With a sign, "Will work for food, clothes or cash"
And he asked if he could pump my gas, so I let him
Clean the windshield and throw out the trash, so I let him
Hey, I even asked the brother his name
Where he was from, got kids man and what's they ages
He kinda sturred for a second, he kinda looked surprise
That anyone would even take an interest in his life

He said, "Young brother dem the only wurrds
I done hurrd, in the last yurr
That wasn't low or get the fuck away from hurr"
How could somethin' so simple as general conversation
Mean much more than general conversation? Hey
You could tell life had beaten him down
Like he was in a title fight and this might be his last round
Sometimes the easiest things we take for granted
Until they gone, to realize we even had it, f'real, f'real, f'real
Hey

Ohh, N dey say, ohh, oh
Oh, ohh, yeah, hey
Ohh, N dey say, ohh, oh
Oh, ohh

I used to think that life had a plan for me
Until I realized, life meant to be planned by me
See that's the key, I only deal with what I can see
'Cause over history, mystery brought us nuttin but misery
Man mo' people done died, in the name of the Lord
Than in any natural disaster, disease or gang war

Before guns there was swords, and they was killin' each other
Ain't much changed since the days, we still killin' each other
Killin' our brothers while another mother cries for help
Man, we need to help a brother find himself
Feed him, life, ah one two, three
Hey, that's somethin' e'ry brother should see, and that's f'real
And that's f'real, and that's f'real
Hey

Ohh, N dey say, ohh, oh
Oh, ohh, yeah, hey
Ohh, N dey say, ohh, oh
Oh, ohh
