Keep Ya Head Up

Keep Ya Head Up

Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice,
I say the darker the flesh, then the deeper the roots.

I give a holler to my sisters on welfare,
Tupac cares, and don't nobody else care.

And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot,
When you come around the block, brotha's clown a lot.

But please don't cry, dry your eyes, never let up,
Forgive but don't forget, girl, keep ya head up.

And when he tells you, you ain't nothin', don't believe him,
And if he can't learn to love you, you should leave him.

'Coz sista, you don't need him,
And I ain't tryin' to gas ya up,
I just call 'em how I see 'em.

You know it makes me unhappy,
When brotha's make babies,
And leave a young mother, to be a pappy.

And since we all came from a woman,
Got our name from a woman, and our game from a woman,
I wonder why we take from our women,
Why we rape our women, why do we hate our women?

I think it's time to kill for our women,
Time to heal our women, be real to our women.

And if we don't, we'll have a race of babies,
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies.

And since a man can't make one,
He has no right to tell a woman when, and where, to create one.

So will the real men get up,
I know you're fed up ladies, but keep ya head up.

Keep ya head up, ooo, ooo, child, things are gonna get easier,
Ooo, ooo, child, things are gonna get brighter.

Keep ya head up, child things are gonna get easier,
Ooo, ooo, child, things are gonna get brighter.

I remember Marvin Gaye, used to sing to me,
He had me feelin' like black, was the thing to be.

And suddenly the ghetto didn't seem so tough,
And though we had it rough, we always had enough.

I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the rules,
Ran with the local crew, and had a smoke or two.

And I realize, momma really paid the price,
She nearly gave her life, to raise me right.

And all I had to give her was my pipe dream,
Of how I'd rock the mic and make it to the bright screen.

I'm tryin' to make a dollar out of fifteen cents,
It's hard to be legit and still pay the rent.

And in the end, it seems I'm headin' for the pen,
I try and find my friends, but they're blowin' in the wind.

Last night my buddy lost his whole family,
It's gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity.

It seems tha rain'll never let up,
I try to keep my head up, and still keep from gettin' wet up.

You know it's funny when it rains, it pours,
They got money for wars, but can't feed the poor.

Say there ain't no hope for the youth,
And the truth is, it ain't no hope for the future,
And then they wonder why we crazy,
I blame my mother for turning my brother, into a crack baby.

We ain't meant to survive 'coz it's a setup,
And even though you're fed up,
Ya got to keep ya head up.

Keep ya head up, ooo, ooo, child, things are gonna get easier,
Ooo, ooo, child, things are gonna get brighter.

Keep ya head up, child things are gonna get easier,
Ooo, ooo, child, things are gonna get brighter.

And uhh, to all the ladies havin' babies on their own,
I know it's kinda rough and you're feelin' all alone.

Daddy's long gone and he left you by ya lonesome,
Thank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody else want 'em.

'Coz I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sure,
And if you fall, stand tall, and comeback for more,
'Coz ain't nothin' worse than when your son,
Wants to know why his daddy don't love him no mo'.

You can't complain, you was dealt this,
Hell of a hand without a man, feelin' helpless,
Because there's too many things for you to deal with,
Dying inside, but outside, you're looking fearless.

While tears is rollin' down your cheeks,
Ya steady hopin' things don't fall down this week.

'Coz if it did, you couldn't take it and don't blame me,
I was given this world, I didn't make it you see.

And now my son's gettin' cold and older,
From havin' the world on his shoulders.

While the rich kids is drivin' Benz,
I'm still tryin' to hold on to my survivin' friends.

And it's crazy, it seems it'll never let up,
But please, you got to keep ya head up.
