Born 2 B.R.E.E.D. Lyrics By Monie Love

    i’m a mother that gave birth young so what about it
    does it mean right away that i’m wrong
    all in due time well my time is right now
    so don’t ask me who where what when or how
    i know i got me and a good partner beside me
    one that will never try to desert of defy me
    so who are you to tell me how to run my family
    i can plan it by myself i need nobody planning me
    ’cause yeah i might be young but my stability’s correct
    everything about my little one i must protect
    what she sees what she hears and everything surrounding
    a decent state of mind is what my daughter will be found in

    born breed
    young mother be thankful be strong
    the fact that you’re young it ain’t wrong
    a mother i will try to be
    tha fact is i was born breed

    so tell me what do the kids learn at school
    how to pack a pistol how to play a class fool
    then they blame the parents when the kid plays hooky
    subject to getting shot is something that i wouldn’t wanna be
    maybe it is safer to stay within your home
    protecting yourself from getting a bullet within your dome
    it’s something to think about the word safe
    i often wonder if there exists such a place
    whether on a bus a train or plain walkin’
    you’re subject to the devious ones that might be hawkin’
    i’ll teach my child to respect every day as a blessing
    and follow the path of her future lesson by lesson

    so ask me again if i need ghetto assistance
    there’s food on my table and my baby’s not wearing piss pants
    i could teach my child more at home that you could ever
    corrupt the youthful mind i produce that will be never
    this one will learn from me the other babies too
    ’cause what you teach is censorship i wanna teach what’s true
    so bother me not with our by the book method
    if i was already deaf i would be getting deafer
    i know exactly what i’m doing in it i believe
    my life is in my offspring ’cause i was born breed
