THIS SIDE OF LIFE

                       THIS SIDE OF LIFE

Baby girl I wish that you had listen, taken my
advise when I was trying to steer you away from
this side of life.
The grass isn’t always greener, good men are not
a dozen for a dime.
A good strong marriage is obtainable but it builds
over time.
You’re telling me that you’re through with him, that
your marriage is done!
You say that you’re a free woman now; can’t wait to
have some fun!
FUN?!... HAVE FUN?!... YOU THINK THAT’S
WHAT WE DO?!
Cheating, lying ass men with crazy baby momma’s
is the shit that we go through!
We deal with…
The man singing sad songs of how he’s down
on his luck. All he needs is a good woman to have his
back til he gets his come up.

The entrepreneur still living at home claim he’s taking
care of him mother.
Then one day he looks you in your eyes and says
“Welcome to McDonalds may I take your order?”

There’s the braid wearing beads dripping Rapper still
waiting for his break. Say’s he’s gonna make it big
some day, rich by 38… but he’s 40.

The sex lovin brotha who don’t want to wear condoms;
says he wants to feeeeeeeeel you.
But in reality all the other women that he’s fucking you’ll
be fucking too!

Every weekend you see us dressed all sexy headed to the
club. Behind our lipstick smiles we’re crying; grave disappointment
still hoping to find love.
All those times I said to you “for your marriage stand strong! Fight!
Is because baby girl, I never wanted to see you on this side of life.
