2Pac - Keep Ya Head Up

Keep Ya Head Up by 2Pac
from the album 2Pacs Greatest Hits 1998.

Little somethin for my godson Elijah and a little boy named Kerim

[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 dont nobody else care
And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot
When you come around the block brothas clown a lot
But please dont cry, dry your eyes, never let up
Forgive but dont forget, girl keep your head up
And when he tells you you aint nuttin dont believe him
And if he cant learn to love you you should leave him
Cause sista you dont need him
And I aint tryin to gas ya up, I just call em how I see em
You know it makes me unhappy (whats 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 its time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we dont well have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man cant 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 youre fed up ladies, but keep your head up


Keep ya head up, oooo child things are gonna get easier
ooooo child things are
get brighter [2x]

[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 didnt 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 Id rock the mic, and make it to tha bright screen
Im tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen cents
Its hard to be legit and still pay tha rent
And in the end it seems Im headin for tha pen
I try and find my friends, but theyre blowin in the wind
Last night my buddy lost his whole family
Its gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity
It seems tha rainll never let up
I try to keep my head up, and still keep from gettin wet up
You know its funny when it rains it pours
They got money for wars, but cant feed the poor
Say there aint no hope for the youth and the truth is
it aint 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 aint meant to survive, cause its a setup
And even though youre fed up
Huh, ya got to keep your head up


[Verse Three:]

And uhh
To all the ladies havin babies on they own
I know its kinda rough and youre feelin all alone
Daddys long gone and he left you by ya lonesome
Thank the Lord for my kids, even if somebody else want em
Cause I think we can make it, in fact, Im sure
And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more
Cause aint nuttin worse than when your son
wants to kno why his daddy dont love him no mo
You cant complain you was dealt this
hell of a hand without a man, feelin helpless
Because theres too many things for you to deal with
Dying inside, but outside youre looking fearless
While da tears, is rollin down your cheeks
Ya steady hopin things dont all down this week
Cause if it did, you couldnt take it, and dont blame me
I was given this world I didnt make it
And now my sons getten older and older and cold
From havin the world on his shoulders
While the rich kids is drivin Benz
Im still tryin to hold on to my survivin friends
And its crazy, it seems itll never let up, but
please... you got to keep your head up
