LYRICS FOR "Brenda's Got A Baby"
Brenda's got a Baby Brenda's got a Baby
I hear Brenda's got a baby But Brenda's barely got a brain A damn shame The girl can hardly spell her name (That's not her problem, that's up ta Brenda's family) Well let me show ya how it affects tha whole community Now Brenda really never knew her moms and her dad was a junky Went in debt to his arms, it's sad Cause I bet Brenda doesn't even know Just cause your in tha ghetto doesn't mean ya can't grow But oh, that's a thought, my own revelation Do whatever it takes ta resist the temptation Brenda got herself a boyfriend Her boyfriend was a cousin, now lets watch tha joy end She tried to hide her pregnancy, from her family Who really didn't care to see, or give a damn if she Went out and had a church of kids As long as when tha check came they got first dibs Now Brendas belly is gettin bigger But no one seems ta notice any change in her figure She's 12 years old and she's having a baby In love with tha molester, whos sexin' her crazy And yet she thinks that he'll be with her forever And dreams of a world with tha two of them together, whatever He left her and she had tha baby solo, she had it on tha bathroom floor And didn't know so, she didn't know, what ta throw away and what ta keep She wrapped tha baby up and threw him in tha trash heap I guess she thought she'd get away Wouldn't hear tha cries She didn't realize How much tha little baby had her eyes Now tha babys in tha trash heap bawlin' Momma can't help him, but it hurts ta hear him callin' Brenda wants ta run away Momma say, you makin' me lose pay, tha social workers here everyday Now Brenda's gotta make her own way Can't go to her family, they won't let her stay No money no babysitter, she couldn't keep a job She tried ta sell crack, but ended up getting robbed So now what's next, there ain't nothin left ta sell So she sees sex as a way of leavin hell It's payin tha rent, so she really can't complain Prostitute found slain, and Brenda's her name, she's got a baby
(don't you know she's got a baby) (don't you know she's got a baby) (don't you know she's got a baby) (don't you know she's got a baby) (don't you know she's got a baby) (don't you know she's got a baby)
