    Don't be a fool
    Let people talk about you
    You are a queen if you only knew
    Glasses and clothes don't define you
    Don't ever fall no matter how hard the wind blew
    Cause the person inside you
    Deserves to fly times two
    No matter who defiles you
    You shall stand crew or NO crew
    Just continue to do what you do
    And you shall excell in everything you do

    Don't be a fool
    And let a boy break you
    Cause that language sayin' "too- too" and "boo- boo"
    The smiles and money are just to get INSIDE you
    And whatevah you do
    Protect yourself and you won't be adding unnecessaries to you crew
    Gurl if you only knew
    I been where you been boo
    And the games and playin' are nothin' new
    Cause a boy will try to pursue
    Anything easy don't you
    Be the one who
    Gets caught up in his s**t boo
    Cause to be real it just takes two

    Don't be a fool
    And try to be cool
    Run and skip school
    Use those tools
    Don't try to obtain street smarts before you obtain those of school
    Cause believe it or not it's always time to be cool
    And be smart cause your heart is big as mine's time two

    Don't be a fool
    Be watchful of your enemies
    Don't put NO friend before your family
    Don't be blinded by smiles and compliments lady
    Cause on the real, these streetz will rape you mentally
    And I ain't talkin' about the kind that has you at risk of havin' a baby
    Be rich in your heart and mind widely
    And the streetz and school will take you proudly
    Realize that deep in your heart that you are lovely
    Don't be a fool!!!!

    Don't be a fool
    And smoke and drink
    I know I do it but that's how I know how you should think
    Life will be in second rink
    And you'll still a mind set of first rink
    You rich as mink
    So don't let your eyes blink
    Cause sure enough during that split second you could be down and out during that blink
    I don't want to be long so I'll leave you with my favorite sayin' to think
    "Stand for something or you're fall for anything" chick
    Take your pick
    Just don't be a fool!!!!
    But I will always continue to love yah!!!!!




    Dedicated to a home gurl that I met this year that came into my life and changed me for the best.......I just wanted her to know that I cared......and only wanted to best for her.......you know who you are
