I had a partner named Courtney Dead, pulled by a van, blood gone from his head
I had another partner named Terry
Dead, he tried to flee the scene before they hit 'em wit the left

My grandma always said
When it rains it pours So they're dying like flies Got me kinda scared to go outdoors 
I had a cousin named Ant
Dead, they say the young man only died by the head
The streets all we got it
Boys gon' be boys, me in ya hype Teach your son to like guns with toys

Now what we supposed to do
When you know you gotta get ya kid enrolled in school?
So you start hanging 'round with the local crew

Have a smoke or two Start kicking 'em a joke or two
Tell me what the parent's supposed to do?

Go tell momma (Go tell momma)
To go ask daddy (To go ask daddy)

That since when was the last time
We were a family Like we supposed to be
 Brothas and sistas (Brothas and sistas)
Achi cousins I love you
(Achi cousins I love you)

And sometimes we as family We don't do what we supposed to
So I say

Family, yeah, family Family, yeah

1979 that's when my momma had me
2006, her oldest son is a daddy Check it, I got two daughters of my own
They say I degrade women
But they degrade they self

They didn't have help, growing up
She had a dead beat momma And a dead beat dad

She go and shake, shakes quick in the club
Drop it like it's hot
I tell my kids what to do
And what to do not

I'm a grown and
I gotta feed my kids
So I teach them the right And wrong way to live

If you feel bad
You need to stop shaking, shaking And your parents won't be so mad Might smile at you

If you keep shaking your *** in the club
Ying Yang gon' show you love
Listen, I keep stressing to my daughters stay in school Learn all you can, yes, I'm a real family man

Go tell momma (Go tell momma)
To go ask daddy (To go ask daddy)

That since when was the last time
We were a family Like we supposed to be, family  Brothas and sistas (Brothas and sistas)
Achi cousins I love you
(Achi cousins I love you)

And sometimes we as family We don't do what we supposed to
So I say

Family, yeah, family Family, yeah
 Check this out
I wanna break the music down for a minute I wanna say something to us
You know I say us 'cause we are a people 
We all are equal If you love your sister, your brother Your father, your mother 
Clap yo' hands Clap yo' hands Clap yo' hands Clap yo' hands 
Family, family Family, family, family 
Go tell momma (Go tell momma)
To go ask daddy (To go ask daddy)

That since when was the last time
We were a family Like we supposed to be
 Brothas and sistas (Brothas and sistas)
Achi cousins I love you
(Achi cousins I love you)

And sometimes we as family We don't do what we supposed to
So I say

Family, family Family, yeah
