First Verse of Tupac’s 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, if don’t nobody else care.
And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot.
When you come around the block, brothas clown a lot.
But please don’t cry, dry your eyes, never let up, forgive but don’t forget, girl keep your 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.
Cause 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 brothas make babies, and leave a young mother to be a papi.
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….
….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 uppp, I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up!
