Mama (Loves a Crackhead)
So he says he loves you, wants you to be his wife?
But he's too hooked on the crack pipe for that to be right for that to be right
It's all lies, none of it's true
Though it hurts, you know what've you gotta do, cut him loose
Like a dirty needle, you don't know where he's been
All I know is I've seen him high when he says that he's clean
There was a gray patch when he first buss on the scene
But as the mystery unraveled, all became black and white, know what I mean?
We can never be friends, he can go to hell
No more hanging 'round the house like a bad smell
Either he goes or I do?, it's your decision mama, it's all on you
You're too old to be naive and I know you ain't ignorant
That's what's botherin' me ma, cause you're goin' on different
I ain't never seen you loved up like this before
Why is it everybody but you can see that you deserve more?
Mama, can't you see
What he's tryin' to do, to you and to me?
Mama, it's so black and white
While you're just sittin' at home, he's out smokin' crack tonight
And I can't go for that
No, no can do
I can't go for that
Can't for that, can't go for that
When I first met him, thought he was cool
Had a few things in common like supporting Arsenal
I saw the way he made you happy like a love fool
Calmed you down when times were hard up stressful
But all that don't matter to sh*t
When he starts acting like a little kid
Treating you as if you were some kind of b*t*h
Mama you ain't rich, but still he borrows your money
And never pays you back, cause every penny he gets, he spends on that
Bad habit of his, f**kin' takes the p*ss
Bringin' that sl*t in to our house, that's the ultimate diss
Now I know you threw him out for that
But how long's it gonna be before you take him back?
Mum I know you're lonely, but you're the only
One who can't see that this bloke is a phony
And he don't really care 'bout you Mum
He just says he does cause he f**kin' thinks you're dumb
My mama loves a crackhead
Is that what I'm supposed to tell my friends?
When they ask me how I'm doing, am I supposed to pretend?
Act like there's nothing's wrong when there blatantly is?
Turn the other cheek when he's takin' the p*ss?
F**k that, that's not how the man of the house acts
I gotta defend my territory, guard my patch
When I know he's doing dodgy sh*t behind your back
Put my foot down, stand my ground and that
This has got to stop, whether the guy buns crack or not
His head ain't there he's f**kin' lost the plot
'Dead and Buried' is the apt phrase, can't even act right
Can't even act his age, that's so f**kin' lame
Thirty-something years old, he should feel ashamed
If I was him I'd slit my veins at the mains
Run a lukewarm bath and sit in it till my arteries drain
Do it right this time, so I ain't gotta to do it again
Cause there's nothing more pathetic than a cry for help
Either you do or you don't wanna kill yourself
Everybody knows you got a problem so it don't matter if you admit it
What you gotta do is be a man and f**kin' deal with it
I know the truth hurts, mama
But this sh*t has gotta be said
He don't love you, he never has and that's a fact
Cause the only thing he really loves in this world is crack
I can't go for that, no, no can do
I can't go for that, can't for that, can't go for that, no
I can't go for that
