2Pac: Keep Ya Head Up
Little somethin for my godson Elijah and a little girl named Corrine

Verse One:

Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice. I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots. I give a holler to my sisters on welfare. Tupac cares, if don't nobody else care. And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot. When you come around the block brothers clown a lot. But please don't cry, dry your eyes, never let up. Forgive but don't forget, girl keep your head up. And when he tells you you ain't nuttin don't believe him. And if he can't learn to love you you should leave him. Cause sista you don't need him. And I ain't tryin to gas ya up, I just call em how I see em. You know it makes me unhappy (what's that). When brothas make babies, and leave a young mother to be a pappy. And since we all came from a woman. Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman. I wonder why we take from our women. Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?. I think it's time to kill for our women. Time to heal our women, be real to our women. And if we don't we'll have a race of babies. That will hate the ladies, that make the babies. And since a man can't make one. He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one. So will the real men get up. I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up

Chorus

Ooooh child things are gonna get easier. Ooooh child things are gonna get brighter

Ooooh child things are gonna get easier. Ooooh child things are gonna get brighter

Verse Two:

Aiyyo, I remember Marvin Gaye, used to sing ta me. He had me feelin like black was tha thing to be. And suddenly tha ghetto didn't seem so tough. And though we had it rough, we always had enough. I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the rules. Ran with the local crew, and had a smoke or two. And I realize momma really paid the price. She nearly gave her life, to raise me right. And all I had ta give her was my pipe dream. Of how I'd rock the mic, and make it to tha bright screen. I'm tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen cents. It's hard to be legit and still pay tha rent. And in the end it seems I'm headin for tha pen. I try and find my friends, but they're blowin in the wind. Last night my buddy lost his whole family. It's gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity. It seems tha rain'll never let up. I try to keep my head up, and still keep from gettin wet up. You know it's funny when it rains and pours. They got money for wars, but can't feed the poor. They say there ain't no hope for the youth and the truth is. there ain't no hope for tha future. And then they wonder why we crazy. I blame my mother, for turning my brother into a crack baby. We ain't meant to survive, cause it's a setup. And even though you're fed up. Huh, ya got to keep your head up

Chorus

Verse Three:

And uhh. To all the ladies havin babies on they own. I know it's kinda rough and you're feelin all alone. Daddy's long gone and he left you by ya lonesome. Thank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody else want em. Cause I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sure. And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more. Cause ain't nuttin worse than when your son. wants to kno why his daddy don't love him no mo'. You can't complain you was dealt this. hell of a hand without a man, feelin helpless. Because there's too many things for you to deal with. Dying inside, but outside you're looking fearless. While tears, is rollin down your cheeks. Ya steady hopin things don't all down this week. Cause if it did, you couldn't take it, and don't blame me. I was given this world I didn't make it. And now my son's getten older and older and cold. From havin the world on his shoulders. While the rich kids is drivin Benz. I'm still tryin to hold on to survivin friends. And it's crazy, it seems it'll never let up, but. please... you got to keep your head up
