lyrics

Pops
First off, I got my name from him
I gotta lotta gotta good game from him
Peep how I spit it at a fine woman
She never heard that line coming
Give it up to Pops
I'm a gentleman, just like him
chip off the ol' block
Pops said you gots to have style
& learn to be original, before I ever bumped BDP
That's true, indeed
Influenced me, on levels so deep,
Taught me to be my own man
so the rebel roams free
Poetry in our heritage, He shouldered me
so I carry it, in a cold world,
we the future of America
poor people fighting & bickerin'
Pops don't like it so I'm tryna get rid of it
Racism & senseless ignorance, arrested development
They couldn't see the bigger picture, but Pops is intelligent
He taught my momma & they taught me
There's love for everybody
A lotta folks ain't ready for society
Coming in, making demands, before they even understand
It's all part of the gameplan
Yeah, I was born a brown boy, but I won't let it hold me back
You already know who showed me that
On the whole, the world is off track
due to greed & pettiness
We need real people to represent
Pops is a good man, Pops could be the President
Righteous as he is, see the world change, on everything

Papa is a man who can understand
how a man has to do whatever he can
Momma said
Papa's smart
Papa's got a whole lot of heart
Papa will do his part
when the game gets hard

Pops
Didn't really have a father figure
A pain rooted deeply a whole lifetime, he'd harbor with him
His old man didn't have a lotta love to give him
Why it went down like that? I don't know, but God forgive him
Through the years, we did a lot of arguing
Hard times, in retrospect, I see what it was, this world is too much
for two men, moving up, making a way
Funny thing is, we got our hearts in the same place
Striving to build something, so we can hold it down for the family
That's the dream in the land of the free
& now it's me, my brotha & my sister, you raised us up
I wanna thank my Pops, for loving my mom
& staying tough
Believe me, I know the story,
Real love, Hella happy to have me as your shorty
I know I'm still a real handful
& sometimes you may not understand
but in the millennium, I am who
you were as a young man, Independent & fierce
I gotta chase my dreams, please me lend me your ears
I want you to know, right now, once & for all, you are loved
Listen up, 'cause this song is for us

Papa is a man who can understand
how a man has to do whatever he can
Momma said
Papa's smart
Papa's got a whole lot of heart
Papa will do his part
when the game gets hard
