    Tired as you want to be but what do you do?
    Grown man sitting around the house with nothing to show, he has no excuse
    Watching Jerry Springer and Jenny Jones all day
    While his wife works so they’ll have a place to stay
    When she comes home, he heads out
    Not a “hey baby how was your day”, no not a word out of his mouth
    Hanging on the corner with his boys
    A grown man playing games with his toys
    Watching the young girls go by trying to run his mack
    Or selling his pharmaceuticals products on the street, killing his people with crack
    You say white man won’t let you rise
    The reasons for your failures you refuse to recognize
    You don’t want to work
    Your responsibilities you shirk
    Wife at home just can’t understand
    How she married a boy instead of a man
    Caring for the kids, while you do your thing
    Continually listening to the same sad song you sing
    “Baby, I’m gonna do right”
    “Let’s not fight”
    A kiss to her cheek, and you want to make love that night
    But in her mind its just sex
    The love she has for you she will soon forget
    Out of habit she stays with you
    Until one day she decides she is through
    Now you blame her for your life being a mess
    Yet the true culprit refuses to confess
    Black man what happened to the king you used to be?
    Had a dream, made a stand, connected with destiny
    Yet now you are just sad
    Makes me mad
    To see one of my brothers
    Forget the legacy of his color
    No longer walk in the mold of what you were created to be
    You now walk in the darkness of selfishness and complacency
    ***** is what they called you, and ***** is what you’ve become
    I wonder Black man do you even have the desire to overcome?
