Daughters Lyrics

by Nas

check it out
i call it
yeah
yeah
yeah, yeah

i call it "shit for niggas with daughters"
i call this "shit for niggas with daughters"
i call this "shit for niggas with daughters"
i call this "shit for niggas with daughters"

[verse 1]
i saw my daughter send a letter to some boy her age
who locked up, first i regretted it then caught my rage, like
how could i not protect her from this awful phase?
never tried to hide who i was, she was taught and raised like
a princess, but while i'm on stage i can't leave her defenseless
plus she's seen me switching women, pops was on some pimp shit
she heard stories of her daddy thuggin'
so if her husband is a gangster can't be mad, i love her
never, for her i want better, homie in jail- dead that
wait till he come home, you can see where his head's at
niggas got game, they be tryna live
he seen your mama crib, plus i'm sure he know who your father is
although you real, plus a honest kid
don't think i'm slow, i know you probably had that chronic lit
you 17, i got a problem with it
she looked at me like i'm not the cleanest father figure but she rocking with it

this for niggas wit' daughters
i call this, shit for niggas wit' daughters
yo, not sayin' that our sons are less important

shit for niggas wit' daughters
i call this, shit for niggas wit' daughters
i call it, not sayin' that our sons are less important

[verse 2]
this morning i got a call, nearly split my wig
this social network said "nas go and get ya kid"
she's on twitter, i know she ain't gon post no pic
of herself underdressed, no inappropriate shit, right
her mother cried when she answered
said she don't know what got inside this child's mind, she planted
a box of condoms on her dresser then she instagrammed it
at this point i realized i ain't the strictest parent
i'm too loose, i'm too cool with her
shoulda drove on time to school with her
i thought i dropped enough jewels on her
took her from private school, so she can get a balance
to public school, they too nurture teen talents
they grow fast
one day she's ya little princess, next day she talking boy business
what is this?
they say the coolest playas and foulest heart breakers in the world
god get's us back, he makes us have precious little girls

[hook]

[verse 3]
and i ain't tryna mess ya thing up
but i just wanna see you dream up
i finally understand
it ain't easy to raise a girl as a single man
nah, the way mothers feel for they sons, how fathers feel for they daughters
when he date, he straight, chip off his own papa
when she date, we wait behind the door with the sawed off
cuz we think no one is good enough for our daughters
love

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
