Ain't no Daddy's where I'm from it's just mad mothers
And eyes that still seem they can't look past color
Why am I disrespected by someone I should call brother.
And why girls feel pretty and constantly hate each other
Bad air in my lungs... Man I can't breathe...
My eyes burning from all the dirt in the debris
And it's 3rd degree emotionless on the scene.
It's like a disease the way Ya'll killing me

I'm 16 and I shouldn't have to feel like this
I'm 16 every Young boy out here wanna kiss me
I'm 16 and me and my momma going through it
16 on the Block 16 on the Block
I'm 16 ( at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16 (at war)
I'm 16 on the Block 16 on the Block

Around here cool is another word for fool
If he smoke then she smoke I gotta smoke too
Now what would I do if I didn't have a clue
I'm 16 y.o. Asking God oh why oh?
If my clothes ain't tight then he ain't gon like me
Eyes on the prize so the next girl dress just like me
I'm so full of promises but why promise if I'm just be rewarded by bad actions
To him I'm just a transaction

I'm 16 and I shouldn't have to feel like this
16 every Young boy out here wanna kiss
16 and me and my momma going through it
16 on the Block 16 on the Block
I'm 16 ( at war) 16(at war) 16(at war) 16(at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16 (at war)
16 on the Block 16 on the Block

I want you to love my mind my smile my style
I want you to know the best of me
I want to belong without being treated like property
Why does this feel like this

I'm 16 and I shouldn't have to feel like this
16 every Young boy out here wanna kiss
16 and me and my momma going through it
16 on the Block 16 on the Block
I'm 16 (at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16(at war) I'm 16 (at war) I'm 16
16 on the Block 16 on the Block
I'm 16 (oooohhh yeahhhh yayyyyy)
16, 16

    She is just telling whats real . And that you try to fit in for whats bad . People don't like you for who you are . And at the age 16 she should not have to feel like shes a grown woman .

    This song means to me that at the age of 16 it is hard to have a baby because your still in school and you have had sex at 16 or an age before that and it is hard to have a baby at that age.

    It means that she doesnt feel appreciated by the way she's lonely in her mind she needs comfort. Guidance, love not sex.she just wnts 2 be 16 without any problems, but in life we all got problems.
