Po Folks
Awwww....

Mmmmm, awww..



[Chorus]

All my life been po'

But it really don't matter no mo'

And they wonder why we act this way

Nappy Boys gon' be okay

All my life been po'

But it really don't matter no mo'

And they wonder why we act this way

Nappy Roots gon' be okay, okay



[Big V]

We came in the game, plain ya see

Average man when the rest was ashamed to be

Nappy head and all, ain't no changin me

Ooooh-oh-oh-oooh-oh-oh...

So rough it was, downright wrong I tell ya

Nobody never gave us nothin but tough time and made us somethin

Different stretch of road, new somethin to see

Every state on the map, a different somethin to eat

Daps and handshakes, it meant nuttin for real

Everybody makin a killin man, showin no feelins

Walkin off collectin pay, it's the way of the world

Can't change it, so I guess I'm gon' pray for the world

Sometimes I ask myself, was I made for the world?

I scream this to you, and I say it to the world

Nappy then, Nappy now - Nappy for a bit

Knee-deep, head over heels in this country shit!



[Chorus]



[Skinny DeVille]

Even though I picture better days,

I'm thankful for the chance I got to say amen

The Lord done blessed me with his grace, I wish this day would never end

We represent the slums, where we from, we feel they bump

Polish shot off on these presidents, and hardtimes they go and come

Some take up off, without the chance, to make it at all

Who woulda thought Skinny'd be the one that's, makin this call

Lord, help me out, tell me where I went wrong

I'm tryna find a righteous path, although it's, never been long

I gotta do it for my sons, they tellin me, "
