Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
And all my childhood memories
And all the extra love that you gave me
And even though I act crazy
And mama made miracles every Thanksgiving
And there's no way I could pay you back
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
And who'd think in elementary, hey I'd see the penitentiary
Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
But all along I was lookin' for a father, he was gone
But my plan is to show you that I understand
But my plan is to show you that I understand
He passed away and I didn't cry
Huggin' on my mama from a jail cell
I ain't guilty 'cause even though I sell rocks
I hung around with the thugs and even though they sold drugs
I love payin' rent when the rent's due
I moved out and started really hangin'
I was a fool with the big boys, breakin' all the rules
I wish I could take the pain away
It feels good puttin' money in your mailbox
It's a struggle, everyday gotta roll on
Just workin' with the scraps you was given
Lady, don't ya know we love ya (And dear Mama)
Lady, don't ya know we love ya (Dear Mama)
No love for my daddy 'cause the coward wasn't there
Now ain't nobody tell us it was fair
One day, runnin' from the police that's right
Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
Pour out some liquor and I reminisce
Shed tears with my baby sister
Sweet lady, don't ya know we love ya
Sweet lady, don't ya know we love ya (Dear Mama)
Sweet lady, lady, lady, lady
Sweet lady, place no one above ya (You are appreciated)
Sweet lady, place no one above ya (You are appreciated)
Tell me how you did it, there's no way I could pay you back
They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless
They showed a young brother love
Though back at the time I never thought I'd see her face
To keep me happy, there's no limit to the things you did
When I was sick as a little kid
When I was young me and my mama had beef
When I was young me and my mama had beef
You always was committed, a poor single mother on welfare
You always was the black queen mama
You are appreciated
You are appreciated
You are appreciated
You're in the kitchen tryin' to fix us a hot plate
17 years old kicked out on the streets
'Cause my anger wouldn't let me feel for a stranger
'Cause when I was low you was there for me
