Lyfe Jennings – She Got Kids lyrics

1st Verse:]
I know a lot of women gonna hate it
But, somebody's gotta say it
And so I nominated myself to deliver the news
That it's hard for a man to choose a lady
That already got a baby
Although his feelings may be strong
Having kids that don't belong to him
Holding on to him somehow seems wrong to him
Exposing them to a man who may one day decide
He's tired of the family life
And now he's gotta tell that little girl a goodbye lie
When he's the only Dad she's ever had in her life
I don't wanna take that chance please don't take offense
It's just the thought of hurting somebody that was innocent

She got kids
And I don't know if I'm ready to give
Them the things that they need to live
'Cause if we become more than just friends what I do for her I gotta do for them kids
She got kids
And I just wanna make sure this is
More than just some sexual trip
See all I wanna do is prevent those kids from getting hurt again

[2nd Verse:]
Most men think it but they'll never say it
But what if ya'll had another baby
And he's accused of choosing favorites, and they're right
Would he be wrong for loving his own flesh and blood a little more
Is he being human or only being immature
Who's to say
That's why it's better just to wait
Take love day to day
And let love spread it's own wings
And if it wants to fly away or if it decides to stay
It wont be because of any unrealistic expectations ya'll done made
And he wont have to pray that little girl ain't awake
When he tiptoe out the door so he won't have to explain
I don't wanna take that chance please don't take offense
I just don't need that kinda drama on my conscience
Ohhh ooooo
