Hot Grease & Grits Dedicated to physically abused women: As I stand here in the mirror and look at my bruised face My blood begins to boil as I think of you catching a case Told me it was all my fault I was the one to blame Feelings of depression…. As I hold my head in shame Had me believing everything would be fine As long as I stayed in my place and kept in line Beaten, battered, broken ribs Cussing, screaming, tearing up the crib Gonna hit me… Just because I don’t do things the way you want them to be done I can’t take this no more… I am not the one Wondering why you hurt me as I sit here and cry Messed me up so bad…. Sometimes I felt like I’d rather die But I realize my life is too precious Watching you act a fool….Going through a jealous rage Got me cooped up like some animal in a cage Living a lifetime of scars and wounds Oh your day is coming…. And it’s coming soon Yes I’m crazy And I’m about to go thin line…. Cause this is the last time I’m gonna let you wup my behind I’m not about to stay here and rationalize…. Why you busted my lip…. And gave me a black eye Fear is what made me stay with you Love is what made me stay true Cause a good woman wouldn’t give up on her man I’ve tried that, but I can no longer understand How can you slap me, kick me, push me, and shove me Then hold me so gently and tell me you love me I’m not about to sit here and stay And let you beat on me day after day I’m tired…. And I ain’t taking no more It’s over…. I’m through…. And I am out the door Mind going through such a rage…. I thought I was gonna kill You put me through a lot of pain, but I had to chill So I played it cool…. Let you think I was gonna abide by your rules That night when I laid my head down to dream I was thinking of a way to get even….A vengeful scheme The next morning you told me to fix you something to eat At this moment I started my plan of defeat As I began making your grits, bacon, and eggs…. This thought just quickly popped into my head Hot grease and grits sounds tempting It’ll stick to you….And don’t worry…. I’ll make sure the pot is emptied Breakfast in bed A special delivery for my man You didn’t like it and began to raise your hand…. But I came prepared with some hot grease and grits on the side As you began to strike me….I threw it all over your bare hide Giving service with a smile And every minute was worth the while This is on behalf of every woman you have ever hit And I hope you like the taste of my hot grease and grits © 2000 Blacmajic.
