Annie's 12 years old
In two more she'll be a whore
Nobody ever told her
It's the wrong way
Don't be afraid
With the quickness you'll get laid
For your family get paid
It's the wrong way

I gave her all that I had to give
But I'm gonna make it hard to live
Salty tears runnin' down her chin
And it ruins up her makeup
They never wanted
A cigarette
Pressed between her lips
But I'm starin' at her tits
It's the wrong way
Strong if I can
But I am only a man
So I take her to the can
It's the wrong way

The only family that she's ever had
Is her seven horny brothers and a drunk-ass dad
He needed money so he put her on the street
Everything was goin' fine until the day she met me
Happy are you sad, wanna shoot your dad
I'll do anything I can, the wrong way
We talk all night
Try to make it right
Believe me shit was tight
I was the wrong way

Don't run away if you wanna stay
'cause I ain't here to make ya
Oh no
It's up to you what you really wanna do
Spend some time in America
Dub style!

She'll give you all that she's got to give
But I'm gonna make it hard to live
Big salty tears rollin' down her chin
And it smears up her makeup they never wanted

So we ran away and I'm sorry when I say
That straight to this very day
It was the wrong way
She took a hike
Don't matter if I like it or not
Because she only wants the wrong way
I gave her all that I had to give
She still wouldn't take it- oh no!
Her two brown eyes are leakin' salty tears
And it still ruins her makeup
They never wanted

    "i raped this crying child, cause that's just what men do. But then i felt bad about it and tried to help her, so that makes it okay, right? And then she left me, so obviously she wanted it. "

    I think it means, he met this girl who has a terrible life, and is abused and its just wrong. He tries to make things better for her by comeing into her life, he offer's everything he has but he is a typical guy and cant help but take advantage of her sexually. He loves her, and wants the best for her, and knows by helping her like this, its the wrong way. He lets her go, because he thinks she deserves better.

    He met this really f'd up girl who'd been abused by her family and was turning tricks. He tried to straighten her out but she was used to the harsh life and couldn't change her ways even though she was unhappy.
