    What’s That About

    Mercy, mercy me, all around I see
    People caught up in the throes of complacency
    And everything they do is not to help you
    Making you uncertain of just what to do

    Friends and family through their vanity
    Driving you to the ledge of insanity
    Everybody wants… to get paid
    While your visions and dreams are being waylaid

    Causing your inner being to scream and holler
    As they drag you through coals for the almighty dollar
    Going in and out, and round about
    The walls of confusion steeped in doubt

    Sexy mamas that has more drama
    Than a TV show about shock trauma
    The dating scene is vindictive and mean
    Making it hard to find the best partner for your team

    Confrontational is the order of the day
    sensational not in any way
    As they misuse you, or try their best to
    Striving so hard to push an agenda through

    But to their discredit, they don’t even sweat it
    If you’re looking for love my friend you can forget it
    So if you think she wants you , and not your Benjamins
    Then my friend you better think again

    At the most you’re just a port in a storm
    To get her through some financial alarm
    As she seeks your money to help her out
    yet she don’t want you, what’s that about
