Baby Don't Cry (Keep Ya Head Up II)

This song is by 2Pac and Outlawz and appears on the album Still I Rise (1999).

Original video
I feel you (Ah) (Baby, don't)
But you can't, you can't give up (Hey, 2Pac what?)

Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up (Outlawz)
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (Keep ya head up)

Now here's a story bout a woman with dreams
So picture perfect at thirteen, an ebony queen
Beneath the surface it was more than just a crooked smile
Nobody knew about her secret so it took a while

I could see a tear fall slow down her black cheek
Sheddin' quiet tears in the back seat, so when she asked me
"What would you do if it was you?"
Couldn't answer such a horrible pain to live through

I tried to trade places in the tragedy
I couldn't picture three crazed niggaz grabbin' me
For just a moment I was trapped in the pain, Lord come and take me
Four niggaz violated, they chased and they raped me

Even though it wasn't me, I could feel the grief
Thinkin' with your brains blown that would make the pain go
No, you got to find a way to survive
'Cause they win when your soul dies

Baby, please don't cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby, don't cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up

Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (Never give up)
Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up (Never give up)
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby, don't cry

Forget him, girl (Forget him, girl), he ain't gon' never change
I ain't no hater but that nigga lost in the game
After the bright lights and big thangs
He probably could love you, but he in love with the struggle

Everyday, his mind on gettin mo' (Gettin mo')
And never your feelings, he's chasin millions fo' sho'
Oh, oh (Oh, oh), now you 'bout to have his baby? (Damn!)
Another wild-ass nigga that's gon' drive you crazy

You got too much, mo', livin to do I'm spittin this to you,
'Cause you deserve more than what he givin to you (That's right)
Beautiful, black, precious, and complicated
A new millennium dime piece, so fine she

Got em all stuck standin' still when she come through
Baby, take a little mo' time, love'll find you
And show us the sky's blue somebody other than me
Gon' give you everything you need, feel me? (Don't cry)

Baby, don't cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (You'll be alright)
Baby, don't cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (You'll be alright)

Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (Keep your head up)
Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up (Never give up)
Even when the road is hard, never give up (No, no, oh)
Baby, don't cry

I'm tryin' to do all that I can, from jump
Now you losin', you was choosin' the wrong man
Dealt the wrong hand, you was young and beautiful
Lost and turned out, what you let that nigga do to you? (Damn)

I knew her since elementary, she blew a kiss to me
Wrote me a note in crayon, wantin' to get with me
We was kids, now she got three kids
They see their father e'ryday, and they don't know who he is

Seen him last night, homey roll a E-class
Mad cheese in the stash, still a deadbeat dad
I bring her, Pampers and food, just to stop through
But those, ain't my seeds, nuttin' really I could do (Nah)

I feel pity for you, you ain't even his wife
Seventeen with three kids, locked down for life
Shoulda chose me, she 'bout to O.D. from the pressure
Hell, nah, I won't let her (Baby, don't cry)

Baby, don't cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (You'll be alright)
Baby, don't cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (Baby, don't cry)

Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (Baby, baby, baby)
Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up (No)
Even when the road is hard, never give up (No, oh)

Baby, don't cry, I gotta keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby, don't cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up (Oooh, baby)

Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up (Keep your head up)
(Keep your head up, never give up)
Even when the road is hard, never give up

Baby, don't cry

Ah, ah, yeah, don't give up (You'll be alright)
Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry

Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby, don't cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up

Baby, don't cry

For all the ladies (Soulshock, Karlin)
Baby, don't cry
Got to keep your head up (<eep your head up)
Makaveli the Don (Head up), aight?
