"Mom And Dad"
[Intro: from "American Me" movie]
'La Primera lives through us, eh. It gives to us. It is us. We make it, Carnal. we don't fake it, we just take it. 'Cause es La Primera Ese! Always Has Been, Always will be. Orale!
Grew up in a bloodline full of G's, Pops was from flats and he planted his seed. Out came a gangsta named Midget G who grew up around PCP in the 70's. A hard little gangster with no direction, pops left moms and I joined my section. Went to 'scuela, my first day. some little cholito said, where you from, eh? I said I don't bang, flats is what he replied. he said c'mon little homey kick it on our side. Backed up the hood, for bout two to three months. finally one day I didn't give a fuck. they took the first punch, I took the next one. from that day forward it wasn't peaches and plum's. it was gangsta life and ese that's for real. had to go home and tell mom the whole ordeal.
How can I tell my mom and dad that I'm from flats? -tell my mom and dad- How can I tell my mom and dad that I'm from flats? -will they understand? - That I'm from the flats gang? Es La Primera ese! Always has been. always will be.
... all creased out, pantalones fucked up, from hitting the ground. what was I gunna say? what was I gunna do? should I play stupid, lie, or should I tell the truth? I don't know what to do. I don't want to break mama's heart. because I loved her from the jump start. And this is true. this ain' no lie. it's gunna kill me inside to see my jefa cry and ask me why. I had no role models in my life. I had my daddy and my tios on my side, to teach me right. they taught me the ways of the hood, to always protect your neighborhood, and keep your name good. this is the lifestyle that I chose. to kick it with my homegurls and my homeys on parole. Perdona me jefita don't you know I love you so. this is my historia just to let you know, just to let you know.
Now, my jefa know, but she loves me so, even though I'm tatted down with... a gangster from the varrio, still mama's little boy. A smiling face is what she enjoys. never likes me to be sad, even though I gotta mean step dad, that always is mad. she wants me to be happy, that's why she accepts me, and everyday says she loves me.
Should I go up to mama, say guess hat I've done? -no, no- Or disappear in the night, and let them notice I'm gone?
