Its a Ghetto Fairy Tale... Ya ya ya ya

It was two weeks before my son's birthday,
The "DT's" were ringing my bell.
(ma'am we need to ask you a question)
They told me the raid, would go down any day,
And if I was smart I wouldn't tell.
It was all over him ya'll, my boyfriend the criminal.
He was caught up in the game, and the F.B.I. warned,
If I didn't go along,
They'd make sure I never saw my son or my boyfriend again.
(Remember This.. u are a convicted felony on probation)
But how could i just turn him in?
(ma'am if you don't help us you'll never see your son again.. trust me)
He would always tell me

I know you're afraid,
But you can't leave me now.
Lean on my shoulder,
Soon it'll be over.
I'm try'na build our future,
I'm doing this for us.
Your're the only one I love,
The only one I trust.

I'd been with him for about, four years,
And I swear he gave me anything that I could dream.
But the life that he lived was a nightmare, I swear, it wasn't clean.
He was blinded, by the cream.
All the murderous capaz, the trip to Las Vegas,
Making millions from paper blood-stained.
Stuck in my head like a song,
I saw every sin, I knew every wrong,
And if I didn't go along, I'd never see my family again.
(so what's it goin to be?..
i know my rights!
one phone call from me and your son is going to a foster home answer the question!
i don't have ta answer shit!)
He would always tell me.

I know you're afraid,
But you can't leave me now.
Lean on my shoulder,
Soon it'll be over.
I'm try'na build our future,
I'm doing this for us.
Your're the only one I love,
The only one I trust.

It was saturday evenin
We were home watchin t.v., he looked in my eyes, i wanted to cry
My son ran to hug him and kissed him goodnight
How could i do this? pledged to do this but i knew he would die!
The FEDs rushed the door. yelled "everyone on the floor"
My man pulled his "9" n started to Fire
He was a soldier of course, and war he couldent win
But without him i coulednt live, so i stood by his side...
And went down with him... :(
OOOOOOHHHH, no no no no, no no no no, ya ya ya ya, ohhhh.. wooooohhh
He would always tell me...

(rep. 2x)
I know you're afraid,
But you can't leave me now.
Lean on my shoulder,
Soon it'll be over.
I'm try'na build our future,
I'm doing this for us.
Your're the only one I love,
The only one I trust.

Im sorry... im so sorry
