    In three short months everythings changed,
    so many our lives have been rearranged;
    Shirley and Tony decided to split,
    just when he bought her that ring to commit.
    Did he think it would alter the life that she leads?
    Her kids are wild, she'll always smoke weed.
    She works full time and hussels ****
    with three of bad *** kids you expect her to sit
    and wait for those checks that never come
    the kids always want, she always succombs.

    I finally cried with my sisters about the abuse
    After two hospital hospital visits I couldn't excuse
    Then I moved into my own place after six years,
    left that man and his child, cried many tears.
    I turned to an old friend to offer his hand,
    none of whats happened had either we planned.
    He wanted to **** me just one time
    and since he's always been my partner in crime
    I figure its safe and i'm on the shot
    so we sexed at 4am after smoking some pot
    now, pregnant and scared, not to mention alone
    i wait all night staring at the phone

    Now Lorraine and all her drama and strife
    has kicked our Dad Darrell out of her life
    Lo is our Ma the one we turn to in need
    Its weird he's not there to take care of his seeds.
    And Marty went too, her paroled brother,
    He's forty-five years old, she's not his mother.
    Refusing to help, they had to get out
    bills not being paid, she had to shout
    Not acting like men and instead boys
    They're saying sorry now, she knows its all noise.

    Man, and thats not even the worst
    47 indictments were just dispersed
    three to a friend, what do we do
    come to my house, forever like glue
    him and his girl for two days fought
    i kept cursing at him, she's gonna get him caught
    turned himself in, now its seems
    we were all right about her, part of the scheme
    Now he's locked up looking at 33 to life
    and she's not holding him down being his wife

    Eleanors granddaughter born only a pound
    we prayed the prognosis would turn around
    but after a month too small and tired, she tried
    her little girl earned a place in heaven when she died
    Then the same night another friends son shot in the chest
    Seventeen and stupid, who doesn't know the rest
    his daddy done told him to stay out of the game
    but a big time player himself, his son just wanted to be the same.

    So within three months everything has changed
    I can't count how many lives have been rearranged
    And the domino effect still has not end
    for the curse of this summer has yet to transcend.
