    Got one for the Santa
    Gift wrapped and paid
    Stripped of voting rights
    Some America gave
    But threw away the key
    Branded ~
    You and me,
    Family goin' hungry
    As a felon "G"

    They raised the bar
    You see,
    To infinity
    Systematically,
    Disenfranchised me
    I can't steal a break
    Just-us didn't take
    Now we got to do
    What we got to do

    Nipping at the bait
    Tryin' to stay clean
    Trippin' with a female
    Over j.o.b.'s
    Stuck on felony
    Prison life for me
    While big time hustlers
    Light a Christmas tree
