Tekst piosenki

(Intro):
(Man says): We're gonna slow it down at this time
And sing a soulful number
This song is a song that, y' know, we all wanna sing sometime
Y' know what I mean? This is the love crowd right?
We all love each other, don't we?
Ai-ight? "All right!"
Let me hear you say yea!!!!
"Yeah!!!!!"

(Verse 1)
I needed love from somewhere. Somebody to interpret
My mother was supposed to, but she's far from perfect
My body was young. Feeling n' thoughts were so sexual
No one to explain, so my body had no schedule
And when it was right, or if the time was wrong
My nursery rhyme turned to a passionate song
So we tossed n' turned. Burning in heated sweat
No one ever explained. There's nothing to forget
An explosion of rain like there is in a storm:
Body wet. Heart beating. Body burning and warm
No mama never said to say no, not even how to
Tell one from another, or what to expect to
Go for or demand, except or reject
Or when to say yes. And also to protect
So I had no choice. I imitated what I saw
My mother had one man, plus three, equals four:
One for his car, one for his job, and one for spite
And one did her right as I listened in the night

(Chorus)
(In background a lady sings): "Souljah, Souljah, Souljah, Souljah!"

(Man say's): The children cannot raise themselves!
The television, the baby sitter, the radio cannot raise your children!
Anything you want the children to know, you must teach them!
You must teach them!
If you do not teach the children, they will not know
They will not know!

(Verse 2)
Now she yelled and hollered, and sometimes even screamed
And never explained quite what she would mean
Mad at the world for the way she never understood
And if she couldn't explain, what makes you think I could
So there's life in my belly-or say, "A biscuit in the oven"-
Kicking and hitting, and pushing and shovin'
And my biggest fear is that it'll ask me those questions
All I'm qualified to give are mistakes and confessions

(Interlude)
"I never thought that this would cause so many problems
I wish I had somebody to talk to
God, I'm so confused..."

Now a cycle repeats over and over again
Make it topsy turvy: the lives of women and men
Bringing life into the world should be considered a blessin'
But it isn't
When you haven't been taught the lessons
Of motherhood...
Now, adoptions not an option. Not even abortion
Won't make the baby pay for societies distortion
Got to go for self, despite societies abuses
Schools built to destroy minds. Upset and confused
Met a friend the other day. She said her name was Souljah
She said, "I'm here to tell ya what your mama never told ya."
"Raise your child" she said. "Raise your head like a warrior
If you don't, the world will destroy ya
We need your baby: mind body and soul
To reestablish the laws of the old
Wise, life-giving ways of our people."

(Chorus)
(In background a lady sings): "Souljah, Souljah, Souljah, Souljah!"

(Man say's): The children cannot raise themselves!
The television, the baby sitter, the radio cannot raise your children!
Anything you want your children to know, you must teach them!
You must teach them!
If you do not teach the children, they will not know
They will not know!

(Verse 3)
She said, "Girl, you're original. And that's definite
You're first. Your wisdom is infinite
Ex-plore your mind. You have so much to give
If you seek knowledge, you'll have reason to live!
In a war
There can be no excuses
Two camps:
The used and the users
Your mind:
You've got to read and nourish
Your talent
Then unfolds and flourish
We can't blame your mom. We know she did what she could
But girl, you've got to be twice as good!

(Chorus)
(In background a lady sings): "Souljah, Souljah, Souljah, Souljah!"
(Man say's): The children cannot raise themselves!
The television, the baby sitter, the radio cannot raise your children!
Anything you want the children to know, you must teach them!
You must teach them!
If you do not teach, they will not know
They will not know!
