    Dear Mama
    You are appreciated...

    When I was young, me and my mama had beef
    17 Years old kicked out on the streets
    Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see your face
    Ain't no woman alive
    that can take my mama's place
    Suspended from school, scared to go home
    I was a fool
    with the big boys breaking all the rules
    I shed tears with my baby sister
    Over the years we was poorer
    than other little kids
    And even though we had different daddies
    The same drama
    when things went wrong, we blamed mama
    I reminised on the stress I caused, it was hell
    Hugging on my mama from a jail cell
    And who'ed think in elementary,
    Heeeey I'd see the penitentiary
    One day running from the police, that's right
    Momma catch me--put a whoop'en to my backside
    And even as a crack fiend mama,
    You always was the black queen, mama
    I finally understand for a woman
    It ain't easy--trying to raise a man
    Ya always was commited,
    a poor single mother on welfare,
    Tell me how you did
    There's no way I can pay you back
    But the plan is to show you that I understand.
    You are appreciated......

    Chorus
    Laaaaady, don't you know we luv ya
    Sweeeet laaaady, please no one above ya
    Sweeeet laaaady, don't you know we luv ya

    Ain't nobody tell us it was fair
    No love from my daddy, cause the coward wasn't there
    He passed away and I didn't cry
    Cause my anger, wouldn't let me feel full of stranger
    They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless
    But all along
    I was looking for a father--he was gone
    I hung around with the thug's
    And even knew they sold drugs
    They showed a young brother love
    I moved out and started really hangin'
    I needed money on my own so I started slangin'
    I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks
    It feels good, putting money in your mailbox
    I love paying rent when the rents due
    Hope you got the diamond necklace
    that I sent to you
    Cause when I was low,
    you was there for me
    And never left me alone, because you cared for me
    And I can see you coming home after work late
    You in the kitchen trying to fix us a hot plate
    Just working with the scraps she was givin'
    And mama made miracles every thanksgiving
    But now the road got rough, your alone
    Trying to raise two bad kids on your own
    And there's no way I can pay you back
    But my plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated.....

    Chorus
    Laaaaady, don't you know we luv ya
    Sweeeet laaaady, please no one above ya
    Sweeeet laaaady, don't you know we luv ya

    Pour out some liquor and I remenise
    Cause through the drama,
    I can always depend on my mama
    And when it seems that I'm hopeless
    You say the words that can get me back in focus
    When I was sick as a little kid
    To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
    And all my childhood memories
    Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
    And even though I act craaaazy
    I gotta thank the lord that you maaaade me
    There are no words that can express how I feel
    You never kept a secret, always stayed real
    And I appreciate how you raised me
    And all the extra love that you gave me
    I wish I could take the pain away
    If you can make it through the night,
    there's a brighter day
    Everything will be alright if you hold on
    It's a struggle
    Everyday gotta roll on
    And there's no way I can pay you back
    But my plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated...

    Chorus
    Laaaaady, don't you know we luv ya
    Sweeeet laaaady, please no one above ya
    Sweeeet laaaady, don't you know we luv ya,
    Sweeeet laaaady

    Laaaady...[fades]...laaaady
    Querida mamãe
    Você é querida

    Quando eu era criança eu e minha mãe brigamos
    Aos 17 anos de idade fui jogado nas ruas
    Embora na época não queria mais ver a cara dela
    Não há outra mulher no mundo
    Que possa tomar o lugar dela
    Suspenso da escola; e com medo de voltar pra casa
    Eu era um otário
    Com os malucos mais velhos quebrando todas as regras
    Eu chorava junto com a minha irmãzinha
    Os anos passavam e eramos mais pobres
    Que as outras crianças
    E mesmo que tivéssemos pais diferentes
    Era sempre o mesmo drama
    Quando as coisas davam errado nós culpávamos a mamãe
    Eu me lembro do estresse que eu causava, era um inferno
    Minha mãe me abraçando dentro de uma cela
    E quem imaginaria isso no primário?
    Heey! eu veria a penitenciária algum dia
    E quando eu corri da policia, que pra mim era certo
    A minha mãe me pegou e me deu um coro
    E mesmo sendo uma viciada em crack mamãe
    Você sempre foi uma rainha negra, mamãe
    Eu finalmente entendo
    Que para uma mulher não é fácil criar um homem
    Você era muito empenhada
    Uma mãe solteira e pobre
    Vivendo de assistência social, como você conseguiu?
    Não há como eu lhe pagar de volta
    Mas o meu plano é lhe mostrar que eu entendo
    Você é querida

    [refrão: reggie green
