    The hood's too full
    Of daily drama
    But I'm too good
    ... To be a Baby Momma
    But some men
    Aren't strong brothers
    They leave their women
    To be single mothers
    She cooks, she cleans
    She does the work of her hands
    She rears, she provides
    She does the work of a man
    Times are hard
    And so is her love
    Strong and pure
    She has God above
    Her dedication
    Isn't without appreciation
    She has the love
    Of her own creation
    Her children may never know
    The love of their father
    But they have her love
    And will not be bothered
    They'll see she's a better man
    Then you could be
    Stronger than you
    Her strength they'll see
    For her power
    Is like no other
    Never underestimate
    A single mother

    Excellent peace, Brittany.
    No "man" is an island.
