​Be Alright

This song is by Do Or Die and appears on the album D.O.D. (2005).

Look in the heart in the ghetto, where we be shooked up
From black losin' their life, now every time we look up
Finally pop him, throw away, just learn, they wanna book us

Chicago political criminals like a crook church
To the Al Capone city we love so much
But when we give our love way, now who the fuck gon' love us?

We die young and they don't care
But the old folks still lookin' for they Medicare
And it's somethin' on my mind I gotta tell ya

My people who surrounded me, they thought I was a failure
But I appear to be that nigga from the start
'Cause I'm down for my motherfuckin' niggas in my heart

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me

Guns blastin', they after me
Like an assassin, neighborhood not lastin'
They burn it down, like fuck them bastards
Police be watchin', from the other block and

They crucial, put the car in neutral
They try to school, people don't run jokes
Different day, same shit, so I hustle with' my head up
Get'cha paper, what'chu scared of?

I ain't no joke so, put the jokes up in a choke hold
My children need, don't stay so
New shoes and some nice clothes
I guess is what we fight fo'

Children of the ghetto, reach for the stars
Never think to me sss, 'cause you know who you are
Why don't you hold yo' head up for me?
This what I said to him

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me

I was a hustla as a shorty, had to make it pop off
Nigga gave me lip and he flinched, I knocked his socks off
Fuck paddle, bubble the coke and watch it rock off
White man designed a blue print to clear the block off

The snakes always fill up the plate and niggas fed up
We need to catch they ass in the yard and shake they head up
Ya sista always struggles with' babies, just keep ya head up
And brothas in the pen doin' time, don't ever let up

A motherfucka know what it is to have to strive again
That's why we hit the bricks and shoot shit when this go bobblin'
We tat the dead off in our skin to keep the mob within'
I never wanna have to go rob or have to starve again

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me
(Yeah)

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me

Baby, it's gon' be all right
Homie, it's gon' be all right
Hold yo head up
Baby, it's gon' be all right
Homie, it's gon' be all right

You only get 'One life to live' and these ain't no soaps
Ain't no joke, nowadays it ain't no hope
An opportunity for you and me to follow our dreams
But me and my team finally plan a powerful scheme

So we can try to make a way that's why I take it 'One day'
At a time, I write rhymes and get out here on the grind
'Cause man, it's do or die for you and I out here in the struggle
It's gon' be all right, nigga be about yo hustle

We almost here now, we can't stop here
We ain't gon' quit till we get everything they got here
'Cause I know how it feel to not to have your bread up
But even though you fed up, my nigga keep yo head up

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me

Said it's gonna be all right
(Said it's gonna be all right)
Only better for me
