We Can Make It Right Lyrics

by Lil' Romeo

We can make it right for us
We can make it right for us
(This for everybody that been through the struggle)
Stead of treated, we get tricked
(Black, white, red or blue)
Stead of kisses, we get kicked
(We all the same, yeah)

We can make it right for us
(Throw your hands up, put your hands up)
We can make it right for us
(Raise your hands up, throw your hands up)
Stead of treated, we get tricked
(Put your hands up, raise your hands up)
Stead of kisses, we get kicked
(Yeah, okay)

Growin up in the projects, I had to stick to the script
Every other day another person was hit
We rode buses to school, I followed the rules
First grade, second grade, packed up and we moved

Still had to struggle, my pops gave up his hustle
Got into music, then game started to bubble
My main focus is to study, stay out of trouble
Bad Bubba, look at me now, thanks dad, I love you

Whoever thought that a 12 year old could touch souls
Even hip-hop braids in a row, thats so cold
I tell my friends, family and all my fans
May God bless everyone on this land

Its a hard life, but love is love, play your cards right
Reach for the stars, life is trouble, put up a fight
Before you know it, your inner sides start flowin
We all have a talent, some just dont know

We can make it right for us
We can make it right for us
Stead of treated, we get tricked
Stead of kisses, we get kicked

We can make it right for us
We can make it right for us
Stead of treated, we get tricked
Stead of kisses, we get kicked
(Okay)

Hard life is all about sacrifice
It aint no limit, I told yall Imma be alright
Im reachin out to all those who might have lost their sight
Its never too late, ask the Lord for life

You only got one life, its time to do it right
Clean yourself up, take back charge of your life
Do us all a favor and please quit your behavior
Count your blessings cause only you and God could save ya

To the people, when the World Trade hit the floor
And all the soldiers in the Pentagon, God bless all yall
To the families and all the loved ones lost
To the heroes in Pittsburg, you took it by far

The world state yall, yeah, we took em head on
Your names will live forever, thanks for yall we live on
Mr. President, nice job, well done
Now aint no terrorists gonna spoil the fun

We can make it right for us
We can make it right for us
Stead of treated, we get tricked
Stead of kisses, we get kicked

We can make it right for us
We can make it right for us
Stead of treated, we get tricked
Stead of kisses, we get kicked
(Okay)

Everybody talkin lil lil' this and lil lil that
I told yall before this is bigger than rap
It's too much hatin goin on, let us young ones be
Only time will tell, Im just tryin to be me

I make music for people to bang in the street
First single 'My baby' number one 10 weeks
I did a show with Michael, yeah, Im comin for the title
Im young, but my dad taught me all about survival

I dont feed into the negative, I sho improve what I do
Dont go for the masses to be true like the Bible
Ive been here long yall, Im part of the cycle
That started so until its big it's washing numbers I do

Im tryin to be the next Jay-Z, Nelly and Ja Rule
Put it down like my pops, thats just the way that I move
It's gotta be another way, live to see another day
Every night I go to bed, I kneel down to the Lord and say

We can make it right for us
(Just remember if you make it right today)
We can make it right for us
Stead of treated, we get tricked
(Itll even be better tomorrow)
Stead of kisses, we get kicked
(Throw your hands up, put your hands up, raise your hands up)

We can make it right for us
(Throw your hands up, put your hands up)
We can make it right for us
(Raise your hands up, yeah, okay)
Stead of treated, we get tricked
(Okay okay)
Stead of kisses, we get kicked
(Dont stop, wont stop, cant stop)

We can make it right for us
We can make it right for us
Stead of treated, we get tricked
Stead of kisses, we get kicked
