live life to the fullest

Finish your school don't you ever stop.
Just because your daddy calls you stupid,
Your moms a crackhead,
Your sister quit school,
And your brother stays high.
You don't have to be the same!
You can change the world, be what you want!

Free your mind
You don't have to be like your daddy who beats on your mom,
Or your mom who pops pills to cope with the beatings.
Finish your school prove your daddy wrong!
Then go get a degree and throw it in his face.

Now say I'm stupid! I'm a man!
I don't beat on my wife and I wont call my son stupid.
No I will teach my son.
I will hold him to a higher degree,
Better than you or me because I am a real man.
