These ideas are nightmares
for white parents, whose worst fear is
a child with dyed hair
And who likes earrings
Like whatever they say has no bearing
It's so scary in a house that allows no swearing
To see him walking around with his
headphones blaring
Alone in his own zone cold and he don't care
He's a problem child and what bothers him
all comes out
When he talks about his fuckin' dad walkin' out
Cuz he just hates him so bad
that he blocks him out
If he ever saw him again he'd probably
knock him out
His thoughts are wacked
He's mad so he's talkin' back
Talkin' black Brainwashed
from rock and rap
He sags his pants do -rags
and a stocking cap
His step -father hit him so he socked him back
And broke his nose
His house is a broken home
There's no control
He just let's his emotions go…

(C'mon!)
Sing with me (Sing!)
Sing for the year
(Sing it )
Sing for the laughter
Sing for the tear
(C'mon!)
Sing it with me
Just for today
Maybe tomorrow
The good Lord will take you away…

Entertainment is changin'
Intertwinin' with gangstas
In the land of the killers
A sinner's mind is a sanctum
Only you're unholy
Only have one homie
Only this gun lonely cuz don't anyone know me
Yet everybody just feels like they can relate
I guess words are a mothafucka
They can be great or they can degrate
Or even worse they can teach hate
It's like these kids hang on
every single statement we make
Like they worship us
Plus all the stores ship us platinum
Now how the fuck did this
metamorphosis happen?
From standin' on corners
And porches just rappin'
To havin' a fortune no more kissin' ass
But then these critics crucify you
Journalists try to burn you
Fans turn on you
Attorneys all gonna turn it to
To get they hands on every dime you have
They want you to lose your mind
every time you mad
So they can try to make you out
to look like a loose cannon
Any dispute won't hesitate
to produce handguns
That's why these prosecutors
wanna convict me
Strictly just to get me off
of these streets quickly
But all they kids be listenin'
to me religiously
So I'm signin' C D s while police
fingerprint me
They're for the judge's daughter
but his grudge is against me
If I'm such a fuckin' menace
this shit doesn't make sense B
It's all political if my music is literal
And I'm a criminal
How the fuck can I raise a little girl?
I couldn't
I wouldn't be fit to
You're full of shit too
Guerrera, that was a fist that hit you!

(C'mon!)
Sing with me (Sing!)
Sing for the year
(Sing it )
Sing for the laughter
Sing for the tear
(Sing it !)
Sing it with me
Just for today
Maybe tomorrow
The good Lord will take you away…

They say music can alter moods and talk to you
Well can it load a gun up
for you and cock it too?
Well if it can then the next time
you assault a dude
Just tell the judge
It was my fault and I'll get sued
See what these kids do is hear about us
totin' pistols
And they want to get one cuz they think
the shit's cool
Not knowin' we really just protectin'
ourselves
We entertainers of course the shit's
affectin' our sales
You ignoramus but music is reflection of self
We just explain it
And then we get our checks in the mail
It's fucked up ain't it ?
How we can come from practically
Nothing to being able to have
Any fuckin' thing that we wanted
That's why we sing for these kids
who don't have a thing
Except for a dream and a fuckin' rap magazine
Who post pin-up pictures on they walls
all day long
Idolize they favorite rappers
and know all they songs
Or for anyone
Who's ever been through shit in their lives
Till they sit and they cry at night
wishin' they'd die
Till they throw on a rap record
and they sit and they vibe
We're nothin' to you
But we're the fuckin' shit in they eyes
That's why we seize the moment
Try to freeze it and own it
Squeeze it and hold it cuz we consider
these minutes golden
And maybe they'll admit it when we're gone
Just let our spirits live on
Through our lyrics that you hear
in our songs and we can…

Sing with me (Sing!)
Sing for the year
(Sing it )
Sing for the laughter
Sing for the tear
(C'mon!)
Sing it with me
Just for today
Maybe tomorrow
The good Lord will take you away…

Sing with me (Sing!)
Sing for the year

Sing for the laughter
Sing for the tear
