that thiing.

Girls you know you better watch out
some guys,some guys are only about
that thing, that thing, that thing.

It's been three weeks since you've been looking for your friend
The one you let hit it and never called you again
'Member when he told you he was 'bout the Benjamins
You act like you ain't hear him then gave him a little trim
To begin, how you think you really gon' pretend
Like you wasn't down then you called him again
Plus when you give it up so easy you ain't even fooling him
If you did it then, then you probably f*** again
Talking out your neck sayin' you're a Christian
A Muslim sleeping with the gin
Now that was the sin that did Jezebel in
Who you gon' tell when the repercussions spin
Showing off your ass 'cause you're thinking it's a trend
Girlfriend, let me break it down for you again
You know I only say it 'cause I'm truly genuine
Don't be a hardrock when you're really a gem
Babygirl, respect is just a minimum
Niggas f***ed up and you still defending them
Now Lauryn is only human
Don't think I haven't been through the same predicament
Let it sit inside your head like a million women in Philly, Penn.
It's silly when girls sell their soul because it's in
Look at where you be in hair weaves like Europeans
Fake nails done by Koreans

The second verse is dedicated to the men
More concerned with his rims and his Timbs than his women
Him and his men come in the club like hooligans
Don't care who they offend popping yang like you got yen
Let's not pretend, they wanna pack pistol by they waist men
Cristal by the case men, still in they mother's basement
The pretty face, men claiming that they did a bid men
Need to take care of their three and four kids men
They facing a court case when the child's support late
Money taking, heart breaking now you wonder why women hate men
The sneaky silent men the punk domestic violence men
The quick to shoot the semen stop acting like boys and be men
How you gon' win when you ain't right within

This song came out when I was about 12 years old. I loved it , but never really listened to the lyrics..and the message she was trying to send out through it. Like really first off all what ever happened to REAL music? Anyone can make a song ...but at the end of the day its about really connecting with people and there is very few songs out there that I can say I can really connect to , and actually give out a message. This song is just amazing to me cus its so real and true. Its shit I think about a lot. Its insane how times change, and it shows it on her video. The way "love" is shown now and how it was before. Seriously whatever happened to waiting to get intimate with someone? Chivalry is out the door. Men treat woman how we let them , so at the end of the day its only our fault for showing them they got it like that. Many females I know just give it up at the drop of a dime; or let dudes speak to them as they feel..bitch this slut that. Its not cute ...we have a voice for a reason; and we need to learn to be REAL woman and show men we are serious about gaining our respect. One of my favorite def poetry jams is called " To all the boys I have loved before " By Madya Del Valle. Youtube it if youd like and listen to her words because it is perfect for this topic also. She says " you have been weaned from the breast of a woman for years yet you come to us wounded and half filled with promises you can only keep half the time ". Why is it that usually when a woman goes into a relationship ..its the man with all these issues, that we feel we need to fix ..like " I can change him into a better man " . How unfair is that to us? Why cant we find a man strong enough to better us , to save us. Another part she says " and we simply wanting to be loved; simply wanting to be able to love ourselves unconditionally; simply wanting to be held and feel safe; simply wanting the truth of whether you can really love us or not. Play Hester Prynn; wear scarlet letters on our chests; become adulteresses ; cheating ourselves out of what we truly deserve. Willing to settle for less; willing to act like a little less than a goddesses; willing to sleep with the enemy ". We sometimes want love so much that we think we have to lower our standards, and become something we are not. JUST to grab attention, so we can get what we want. Its getting worse and worse, and girls at a very young age are thinking it is the only way to get a man to love them. Its sad to see 14 years old girls already looseing there virginity, and it not being something special to them....young girls doing things grown woman are doing. This is what scares the shit out of me; because if we dont raise our kids right and let them get zapped into what the TV is telling them, or what they see there favorite singers or actors doing ....they can follow that same predicament. The last part to her poem is the best, and something I hope many females will feel enough to live by " I will sleep on dry pillows now in a bed big enough to love myself in. I will awake these coming mornings with my eyes dry and shining; full of the knowledge I am priceless and worth nothing but honesty. I will remove the scarlet letter from my chest and hold the hand of the little girl I used to be and say I'm sorry to her. I'm sorry for cheating you out of the joy you have always deserved..and I will wait for a man to come along that can give me the truth of how much he can really love me."
