I was talkin' to one of my home girls from over sea And guess what she had the nerve to say to me She said, "Girl, it must be nice to be over there and be free." Ooooo, and you know I went off, right? I mean, real quickly. I said, "Girl, free? What the HELL is free? If free is being looked at in the swats as a refugee And being took in just because of a crime down the street That the white man said matched your idenity Then that's me If free is not being able to get a job because you got a felony That you didn't even do, then THAT's me If free is getting the scraps from the white neighborhood And giving them to your hood That's me If free is what's in front of me Talking about it must be nice, I ain't free!!!!!!" And then there was silence!!!!!!!!!!!! Then she spoke She said, "****, free ain't over here either Being a ******** G.I soldier What kind of life is it wearing a camoflage uniform in a Hummer Knowing that every soldier Next to you is a mother of father And they leaving their son and daughter To be in army to protect ya Free? being scared that terrorist are out to capture ya To hurt ya Scared to sleep in the bunk cause the soldier next to ya Might be a trader And gut ya That ain't free, that's why I would rather be in America!!!" It must be nice It must be nice It must be nice It must be nice!!!!!!!!!!!!
