Picture this, a pretty little fifteen year old girl Born in the projects and openly given to the world Didn't know much but what was taught to her And well let's just say baby girl had a lot to learn Her name was Tasha Wasn't scared of anybody who stepped to her Baby before the the age of sixteen, I felt for her Booty shorts on and men flocked around her Filling her head up, "oh baby, you a dime!" that's what they said to her And she had no other choice but to believe it no matter Baby girl didn't have much money Let her looks talk for her, and don't forget about tha booty She had it going on or so she thought honey Forgot about her baby Had to give it up for adoption early Think she sold it to a white couple for a buck fifty She was naive to the world, she reminded me of me But I couldn't help her, she was just to quick for me She thought she was a dime piece honey She couldn't been no older than seventeen when she left her g-mama and started stripping Body was fly you know the money was poppin' She had a smile on her face everytime I saw her coming New shoes, new car, all from stripping Didn't really faze her that she was sinning Cause she thought she was a dime piece, but she was really getting Dragged deeper into a life with new meaning Walked the streetz everyday with a new man Under her hands Hairs braided and nine inch nails on her hands Life in the streets started stealing other people's man Thought it was funny until she got with the WRONG man Word got back to his WOMAN And all hell broke lose and out of hand Why? Cause she thought she was a dime man!!!! Tits hung out and angry with plenty Thought sex was suppose to be spent with plenty But she found out early that "other woman" was no dummy cause all the while she was scheming to get her back, do take this from me Phone taps, late night stalker of dates, she was behaving so fiercely Because baby girl stole her man and left her lonely Honey, I tell you baby girl thought she was worthy Of all women's men so she didn't know the other woman was following her, you feel me? I tell you, this girl thought she was a dime piece and worked for money By this time she had left the other woman's man But the other woman didn't know before it got out of hand Baby girl walk out of the club with another man But the other woman thought it was HER man Ran up to baby girl and the man Shot them both with a shot gun in her hand And why, bacause baby girl thought she was dime man!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby girl shocked and sitting on the ground in blood, hurt Coughing and not aware of what she was shot for Holding her stomach looking at men she vowed never to do any more I walked up to her And I held her hand, and while holding I prayed for her She looked at me and she held my hand even tigher But before I knew it she was gone with the heavenly father She thought she was a dime that's why I shed a tear for her As for the other woman she was never found I didn't even see her, otherwise she would also be down I cried that day for that dime But in time I learned to stop crying, maybe death was meant for that dime Maybe she was put here on earth to teach me NEVA to be a dime I'll stick with my nine Because a dime ain't worth giving me a short time!!!!!!!!!!!! She thought she was a dime!!!!!!!!!
