    Sit down girl, let me tell you how it is
    I know that's ya man but this here is his kid
    I'm a hood girlie and you a classy ***** but this is what your man did
    He came from your hood to mine and this here is his seed
    Now you can sit down and frown but I'm not lying
    I got papers on this to prove I was the one he was *******
    Now I don't care if you take him back or not
    But I'm not about to take care of my child by myself, welfare is all I got
    I can't take care of no kid on that, I'm not no fukkin robot

    So sit down girl, let me tell you how it is
    Now to start off I didn't know about you
    When he came to my town he was selling drugs and didn't tell me about you
    He was a hood ***** with stacks on deck and where I'm from that's little or few
    I was attracted to him so that's why I stand before you
    Before long we were hanging tight
    I didn't know them nights he was sleeping in my crib he had a wife
    Didn't know one day I would add a step child to your life
    But I can't take back the past aiight
    I didn't come here to your crib to fuss and fight

    So sit down girl, let me tell you how it is
    Now we were both deceived
    But I refuse to let him do the same thing he did to you to me
    He got me pregnant and I’m just here to collect my money
    I ain’t planning on living in the hood forever honey
    This **** is funny
    Cause just the other day he was up in me
    And still hadn’t said **** about you to me
    If gossip didn’t travel fast where I’m from
    I would have still been taking the nickel and dimes he gave me like I was dumb
    This place is nice, where you from?
    Okay, well, I can see why you wouldn’t want to talk

    But sit down girl, let me tell you how it is
    Now after I told him about the baby he left me
    Called me stank and all that but he knew he was the only man hitting me
    The other men in the hood were scared to even talk to me
    He made me feel like this baby was a mistake but not to me
    It’s a blessing by God given to me
    Can you believe ya man ain’t give me penny
    I’m a single mama but my baby daddy standing on the corner right up from me
    He ignores me
    He went right on to fukk the girl next door to me
    [email protected], I miss the money
    But honey,
    This is his baby
    I put my life on that lady
    I had to tell you quickly

    So listen here girl, let me tell you how it is
    I’m sorry I came out the woodworks with news like this to break up your happy home
    But I know it couldn’t be that happy if you sitting in this big @ss house all alone
    Go head, call him on the phone
    Tell him to come home
    I grantee it take exactly twenty minutes, the same distance from the street of my home
    Face it, your man will never stop his roam
    And I’m sure I’m not the first cause your face looks like it’s used to this song
    But I’m sad to say it’s a lot of people like you
    Who take **** from men like him and let him neglect you
    You a pretty girl, he ain’t deserving of you
    But to be frank with you I’m not sorry for you
    You could up and leave him any time you want but the money is all that matters to you
    I’m not much different because look at me I’m here to take from you
    But the difference between me and you is I would never marry a fool

    So listen here girl, let me tell you how it is
    I’m just here for you to cut me a check
    Here’s my address and a number if he chooses to call his son direct
    I’ll be on my way, here’s a copy of the DNA 99.9% perfect
    This here is hectic
    But be terrific
    I’m on my way, see ya later, feel my lyric

    I guess you "told her how it was"

    Dang Kraze, that scenario was deep...phew...so many sisters go through that. SMH gold-digging from a coal mine...makes no sense whatsoever. That man needs to be taken to the cleaners just for the heck of it, for that matter the "three ring circus" ought to be sterilized:rolleyes:

    Sistas will learn one day, hopefully not through trial & error. When will we ever heed the word of our foremothers; we ig them like they're trying to hold us back from something good.

    Touching story
