Текст песни Common - U, Black Maybe

[Chorus: Bilal]Can't come around,They gon' wanna bring you down,No one knows just what's inside,Doing dope and doing time,Why they messing with your mind?Black maybe...[Verse 1: Common]I heard a white man's yes is a black maybe,I was delivered in this world as a crack baby,Hard for me to pay attention and I act crazy,Gotta get over from the tip, I watch the fat ladySing a song, on how we guerillas in warfare,And I'm the kingest kong.They say we dreaming wrong,Them same strips that them older cats lingered on,Now the Walgreens is gone, hope is killed, fiends are born,We leanin' on a wall that ain't that ain't stable,It's hard to turn on the hood that made you,To leave we afraid to,The same streets that raised you can age youWith other black birds that's caged, too.A rage up in Harlem and the Southside,Brothers is starvin' with their mouth wide open,Floatin' across state, got the workout plans so they can move weight,The fate of the black man, woman, and child: maybe.[Chorus: Bilal – ×2]Can't come around,They gon' wanna bring you down,No one knows just what's inside,Doing dope and doing time,Why they messing with your mind?Black maybe...[Verse 2: Common]He had game since he used to hoop at Chatham,Neither the ghetto nor defenders could trap him,The stones had his back and they'd pat him,He was livin' a life they couldn't fathom.Colleges gettin' at him with all type of scholarships,Even if he went, they knew he'd leave college quick

For the pros, the one from the hood that was chose,The black rose that grew in the jungle,But humble stud still had rumble in his blood.Women all around givin' him trouble love,You know, the love when you up, they down,'Cause you wrap a ball, they round,Your win is their crown.Dudes in the circle he known for years,Shared beers and cheers but chose different careers,When paper and fame came, they ain't know how to react,Them same studs shot him in the back.Now that's black... maybe.[Chorus: Bilal – ×2]Can't come around,They gon' wanna bring you down,No one knows just what's inside,Doing dope and doing time,Why they messing with your mind?Black maybe...[Common:]When we talk about black maybe,We talk about situationsOf people of color, and because you are that colorYou endure obstacles and opposition,And not all the time from... from other nationalities,Sometimes it come from your own kindOr maybe even your own mind.You get judged, you get laughed at, you get looked at wrong,You get sighted for not being strong.The struggle of just being you,The struggle of just being us... black maybe.Black maybe...[Chorus: Bilal]Can't come around,They gon' wanna bring you down,No one knows just what's inside,Doing dope and doing time,Why they messing with your mind?Black maybe...
