THANK YOU

Dame D.O.L.L.A.

Remember back when I was five, I seen my grandmother's pride
Care-taking for friends and watched a couple die
Grew attached to how you love and what you had inside
Never held your tongue, wasn't lettin' nothing slide
Learned early that you gotta give credit where it's due
Who better to start with, I gotta start with you
All them days when you was sick and hustling us all to school
Character and confidence, you gave us all the tools
Got a whooping if we need it but thinking how we was treated
You saw something in us way before we could've seen it
All them long ties with the cousins out the phoenix
Everybody got in trouble when they laughed at me for being
Boy I couldn't do wrong, that's how you made me feel
When I ain't made grades, you saved me from getting killed
Remember bringing you the bags where you carried all your pills
My parents separated; you was loving me for real
Thank you Granny

Say your prayers, be for real
You know I am so proud of you, keep your head up
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
I want you to be a man, stay true
Don't let nobody get over you, be for real
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
I'm watching over you in the sunshine

What the Ds and Fs stand for? Doing fine?
What yo little ass know about grind?
You make money at night but with the son you gon' really shine
You gon' get rich just rich for time
You start selling with the mess, you coming down mixed up
Interrogations, that's when your friends gon' switch up
If you Kobe, why deal with the ground beef?
That's a problem on the street, just ask dudes, everybody
You ain't make that team, but can't hate it
We all learn from that, then little Shad made it
Zach is still scrambling, Dre is still stacking
Derek fixing the whips and Ralph making it happen
The boat going down with the captain
Lead by example they really watching your actions
Conversations with my girlfriend yeah
Them talks saved me man, I hella love her

Say your prayers, be for real
You know I miss a part of you, keep your head up
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
I want you to be a man, stay true
Don't let nobody get over you, be for real
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
I'm watching over you in the sunshine

To the villains that raised me little knucklehead
I ain't got nowhere to go that was enough said
It was chili, spaghetti, pasta, and ribs
Everybody got their plate but that ain't chip in
When it was Christmas, a man put my name in a hat, made me feel a part of something, I was thankful for that
When it was late you tell me, I knew where the blankets was at
It mean that you got right to the back
I be like, "Hey it's me"
When I came in hella lit and nobody ever understood what Abby said
But you always felt the love and just nod your head
Believe the greasy, you always said
You cosign with that
And when the heater broke, he left the stove on that mat
You always kept it 100 I was on my hype
You left the door unlocked and it saved me life

Say your prayers, be for real
You know I miss a part of you, keep your head up
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
I want you to be a man, stay true
Don't let nobody get over you, be for real
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
I'm watching over you in the sunshine

You original Clarence Street, nobody can compare
Used to make us drop down and say the Lords prayer, became the routine we did it when you wasn't there
I quit basketball, you told me "Show 'em you ain't scared"
Gave me that inner faith, gave me nothin' to fear
Then I went and got Defensive Player of the Year
"Treat people how you wanna be treated," that was your slogan
I love that wrestling and you bought me that Hulk Hogan
Still watching people kids, still cooking dinner
Foundation strong 'cause it's you that's in the center
Too many acts of kindness you doin' with no agenda
Half blinded, one eye with a great set of antennas
Told me I could probably catch a fish with yo hook hat
Drink some alcohol you was telling me I look dead
I was in the wrong you said you wouldn't tell my mama
Ain't nothin' like a person that can always keep a promise

Say your prayers, be for real
You know I miss a part of you, keep your head up
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
I want you to be a man, stay true
Don't let nobody get over you, be for real
You know I'm watching over you in the sunshine
I'm watching over you in the sunshine
