​Shawty

This song is by Grits and appears on the album Dichotomy A (2004).

Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?
Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?
Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?

What's happening, Shawty?
I ain't seen you 'round in a minute,
You look growed up and swolled up, and looking contented,
I saw your mom's around the way,
You know she put me up on it: how you been running 'round with Dré and taking trips up the road,
What's Lakeisha doing?...Oh, y'all ain't together no more?
For real man?
I can't believe she over there staying with Joe, 'cause didn't his door just get kicked in?
I thought he just get out the pen and going back again,
I heard he ain't gonna do no less than ten,
That's a shame, man; the game done put another one down,
And truth to tell: you 'bout three feet and half way in the ground,
Dog, you better than this; don't let that money make you no fool,
By now you could of graduated and been finished with school,
But, anyway, I just wanted to try to say my little piece,
Don't be deceived, boy, you ain't gonna find no love in these streets,
And that heat you hold ain't nothing but false power and control,
And that drone gonna keep you blind from the potential in your mind,
Look, man, I ain't your daddy, and ain't trying to be neither,
But I love you like you're mine, and I want you to see,
You wanna be a man, then face the one that's given you life and live to do his will, 'cause, Shawty, that's what's happening for real,
For real.

Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?
Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?
Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?

What's the hasp?
Perhaps you're spent from all them laps and caps and peaks,
Have to speak my mind; carrying these thoughts for weeks,
How do I get through to a nation who lost?
Ain't got no indication,
Intimidation when I'm facing, pacing,
Strategically, man, your relation
So many gutter-minded, big-behinded,
Expose the evils they themselves are giving life to,
Mirrored image, look just like you,
Boy, you just a pawn, scripted part like Goldie Hawn,
Playing a role with no control, cashing cheques your name ain't on,
Got that real, that raw, dopest catch you ever saw,
Congruent with that shine, a fluent country boy from Arkansas,
Grateful to be here, pre-destined, manifesting blessings, learn life lessons,
Know your place and role; quite second guessing.

Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?
Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?
Tell me what's happening with you, Shawty,
What's happening?
What's happening with you, Shawty?
What's happening?
