Rhapsody – In The Town lyrics

Featuring Nomsa Mazwai

[Intro:]
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town

[Verse:]
Word around town spread, she lyin on her death bed
You should spare most her days makin sure they love it
Corners used to hold it like kalsas
The corners man with his satellites
Cold bitch like in here, her disses paying good bread
She young, 18, never listened to what her mom said
Her daddy touch a fatty now her real daddy insulted
Using they child to put some money in they wallet
She a child baring a child, she feeling nauseous
Sick of the world but got a fetus, need to feed it
So her need to me and then give it pleasure all for her baby girl
She curls her hair with iron, not hot as the heat she lyin with
They got her sick and now her insides inside her dyin
Cars past they flyin, but everything around her slowin all
She sees the money that the town give to buy her
So, at 18 years old
Remind me of so many young girls I know in the town

[Chorus:]
In the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
In the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town

[Verse:]
Yo, the nights move fast when the lights turn off slow
She all done shoppin, got some brand ne wplatformes
She could walk the town flaggin down new acros
Shine me a cause with 2 passed doors in back of em
Don't make her feel God, can't forgive her for all of those
Said she stack er paper and won't change forever ho
She ain't even showin so she doin for all the dough
� Cus the stress pilin up and what she need is some help you cope
Exchange with drug dealas, some blow for blow hilla
Tryna take her mind off the killer like pillars dope
Her mind stay on it, wishing God would just make it snow
Can take her off the priest, it's only just for Monday though
The town hard and she scarred and she just wanna let go
On her dying bed, she take her last breath on an overdose
Only hours after pushing out a young baby though
She named her a miracle and prayed for her baby's soul

[Chorus:]
In the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
In the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
In the town
Down town, in the town

[Verse:]
And now she older, 16 on the corner
Raised by her mom and daddy, smoking marijuana
Her real mom and daddy though, she never got to know em
Never knew a different life because no one was there to show her
Take her by the shoulders, tell her she was beautiful
Without a shame you never paid that at her age won't use you all
She never finished school and never got to go to prom
And spent most the weekends working, putting needles in her arm
All the older women say she look just like her mom
And how she used to read the scripture from the bible, Marc and John
But now she's all alone in the town by herself
Like her mom that fell to her knees, living for the wealth
Worried by the health and the life that's inside her
Reading scriptures from the bible now and this is the cycle of the town

[Chorus:]
In the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
In the town
Down town, in the town
Down town, in the town
In the town
Down town, in the town
