They say boys don’t cry

But baby, I’m still filled with fear

Sometimes I don’t know who I am

Sometimes I question why I’m here

I just wanna be a good dad

They say girls shouldn’t be tough

And moms should raise their kids at home

For your sweet 16, you get a bus pass

C                     G

Had your heart broken? Been there, done that

I love you and I can’t give you enough of that

Get back to community that raised you up

     F

Read Langston Hughes, I suggest “A Raisin in the Sun”

Listen to Sam Cooke, a change gon’ come

You put the work in, don’t worry about the praise, my love

Don’t try to change the world, find something that you love

And do it every day

Do that for the rest of your life

And eventually, the world will change

I’ll be patient, one more month
