Brenda's got a Baby
Brenda's got a Baby

I hear Brenda's got a baby
But, Brenda's barely got a brain
A damn shame
Tha girl can hardly spell her name
That's not our problem,
That's up to Brenda's family
Well let me show you how it affects the whole community

Now Brenda never really knew her mom
And her dad was a junky
Puttin' death into his arms, it's sad
Cause I bet Brenda doesn't even know
Just cause your in the ghetto doesn't mean you can't grow
But oh, that's a thought, my own revelation
Do whatever it takes to resist the temptation

Now Brenda got herself a boyfriend
Her boyfriend was her cousin,
Now lets watch the joy end
She tried to hide her pregnancy,
From her family
Who didn't really care to see,
Or give a damn if she
Went out and had a church of kids
As long as when the check came they got first dibs

Now Brendas belly's gettin bigger
But no one seems to notice any change in her figure
She's 12 years old and she's having a baby
In love with the molester, who's sexin' her crazy
And yet she thinks that he'll be with her forever
And dreams of a world where the two of them are together,
Whatever

He left her and she had the baby solo,
She had it on the bathroom floor
And didn't know so
She didn't know what to throw away
And what to keep
She wrapped the baby up
And threw him in a trash heap

I guess she thought she'd get away, wouldn't hear the cries
She didn't realize
How much the little baby had her eyes
Now the babys in the trash heap ballin'
Momma can't help her, but it hurts to hear her calling
Brenda wants to run away
Momma say, you makin' me lose pay,
The social worker's here everyday

Now Brenda's gotta make her own way
Can't go to her family, they won't let her stay

No money, no babysitter, she couldn't keep a job
She tried to sell crack, but ended up gettin' robbed
So now what's next, there ain't nothin left to sell
So she sees sex as a way of leavin hell
It's payin the rent, so she really can't complain
Prostitute, found slain,
And Brenda's her name, she's got a baby

Baaaaaaaaby

(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
