    Normally I turn a deaf ear
    Turning my head away
    Acting like it's all pretend
    But today, dear honey child
    you shouting in the right church
    Barking up the right apple tree
    I'm bout to give ya whatcha need
    Notice I didn't say "want" but "need"
    I'm tired of watching your self-destruction
    It time you sit down for some reconstruction
    and listen to some good ole fashion instruction
    I understand that common sense ain't common
    But honey please use the sense God gave you
    Why would you be out there chasing the rainbow
    Without a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out
    Please get up on your grown man/woman right now
    Every grown person need some where to lay they head
    Some ends or means to pay the cost to be the boss
    The bible says if a man don't work then HE ought not eat
    again I say baby time to reconstruct and get it together
