Beginning (Sampled):
You took away the sound, the touch, the smell, my sight, to see your smile

[Don Trip]
Please, no pity for a G
Though I've got a son that I barely get to see
I see him for an hour. After that he's gotta leave
On top of that, I only get to see him once a week
Yea, right, lucky me
Well f**k child support and whoever disagrees
I learned a valuable lesson, indeed
But I'm just trying to be the best father I can be
Apparently I'm an unfit father, cause all I know is dope
And all I got is dirty dollars
But I'm selling dope to help my family get farther
Cause no 9 to 5 is gonna prevent us from starving
I'm sorry Jaylin, I don't get to see you like I want to
But I just wanna let you know I want to
If the court grants me visitation, them I'm going to
But you're too young to understand what we're going through
And your mama's low down
She's just doing everything to hurt me right now
Why? Cause I don't love her like I used to
So to get back at me, she knows she's gotta use you
And I don't know what else to do.
She don't understand that this s**t will bruise you too
And now I gotta take the b***h to court, so either way, it's a lose - lose

[Hook - Cee Lo]
I'm writin' a letter to my baby
I'm writin a letter to my son
Tell em things done got too crazy
But it's not over, it's not done
I told your mama I don't love her
It made her trip and now she gone
So I'mma be the bad one, I'mma be the bad one
But I just wanna see my son...

[Don Trip]
I tried talking to the b***h, but she keeps using you as a bargaining chip
And I am not the one to be bargaining with
That just makes me wanna go and put my paws on that b***h
I swear this s**t ain't even right bruh
I ain't even got a chance to change your f*****g diaper
This is what I get for going raw when I piped her
Thinking that I loved her, when I shouldn't have even like her
But I do not regret my child
Stupid b***h, I just wanna see my child
Do what you may, but you will never make me bow
F**k child support, b***h take me to trial
Why you with this s**t? Cause I ain't read you no vows?
B***h move on. Me and you ain't working out
So... What's it matter that I moved to work out
'Long as I provide, and put food in his mouth

[Hook - Cee Lo]
I'm writin' a letter to my baby
I'm writin a letter to my son
Tell em things done got too crazy
But it's not over, it's not done
I told your mama I don't love her
It made her trip and now she gone
So I'mma be the bad one, I'mma be the bad one
But I just wanna see my son...

[Don Trip]
'Mater fact, I'm in school right now
'Case the music don't work and I can put the work down
My momma say this s**t sure to work out
All the bullshit I'm going through to see my first child
See his first steps.
See his first smile.
Hear his first words.
Teach him how to count
But I guess I've been counted out, seeing as, the b***h don't want me around
When I speak to him, he don't recognize the sound
The sound of my voice, so he just looks around
I know she enjoys it, so I suck it up and smile
But f**k the stupid b***h. I just wanna see my child

[Hook - Cee Lo]
I'm writin' a letter to my baby
I'm writin a letter to my son
Tell em things done got too crazy
But it's not over, it's not done
I told your mama I don't love her
It made her trip and now she gone
So I'mma be the bad one, I'mma be the bad one
But I just wanna see my son...
