    I don't owe nobody ****...

    Don't come callin' me for no money
    And don't be knockin on my **** door---
    I'm tired
    My soul is ssoo tired

    You see dem kids?
    I raised em
    Yeah, I raised em like I got the thirty minute **** it took to create em
    They ain't mine though
    But I raised em cuz we lost our mama
    And had a no good daddy

    My fingers are hurtin'
    My eyes are burnin'
    My back is curvin'
    I'm ssooo tired
    This is bout my thirty-third year workin'---
    Started when I was eight

    Don't ask me for no **** mondy!

    Bills, bills, bills
    Beggars, borrowers, and more **** bills
    I'm tired now
    I'm tired
    I'm tired
    "Prayer changes thangs"
    I guess He didn't hear all of mine
    **** it---I won't een complain

    I don't owe nobody ****!

    weary souls
    quickly grow old
    with time and life's solemn song
    day after day
    you fight and pray
    but the battle is still raging on

    Keep fightin' baby....Keep fightin'
