Merkules – Dear Mama lyrics

Merkules – Dear Mama lyrics

I’ve been waiting a really, really long time to do this song
This one is dedicated to the dopest mom in the world, alright?

First of all, thank you for raising me since a child
And I hope I made you proud by the way that it’s working out
It’s been 27 years since you carried me in your tummy
So I wrote this to remind you I care about you and love you
Sorry that I never wrote a song about you
But it’s only ’cause I don’t deserve a Mama like you
You taught me that no matter what I gotta fight through
And never judge a person till I walk in their shoes
I’m really sorry for the pain that I put you through
Sometimes I see it in your face when I look at you
I never graduated cause I ain’t did too good in school
Most parents would’ve spanked their kids with a wooden spoon
Not you though, you told me to keep going
Find what you love, work hard and don’t lose focus
You taught me how to love and how to deal with my emotions
And somehow you never stopped smiling in the process
I was with the wrong crowd, you was scared for my life
But no matter what, you made sure you were there for advice
I was barely ever home, so you would stay up every night
Waiting for me, praying that I’d make it back alright

Dear Mama
I can’t believe I put you through that
Cause you’re the perfect kind of person so I shouldn’t do that
Dear Mama
I promise you those kind of days are over
But I miss that craft dinner that you make when I turn this stove on

Dear Mama
You don’t gotta worry no more
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I hope you feel like the world is yours
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I don’t want you to feel no pain
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I wouldn’t be the man I am today
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
You don’t gotta worry no more
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I hope you feel like the world is yours
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I don’t want you to feel no pain
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I wouldn’t be the man I am today without my Mama

All praise to the queen, Brenda Stevenson
You gave me everything you had like you never needed it
And you believed in me so you’re the reason that I succeed in this
So if it wasn’t for you I don’t think I’d ever be like this
You took my friends and you raised them like they were yours
Puttin’ food on the table for everyone just because
It didn’t matter, just as long as they felt like they were loved
You had a spot for everybody if you knew they had it rough
I gotta ask you, do you think about yourself?
Because 99% of the time you’re there for everyone else
I was a really bad kid, I don’t wanna know how that felt
You change lives all the time, think of all the people you helped
I gotta thank you on behalf of me, but them too
Cause you blessed us so many times, it’s time we bless you
These career that I have right now, yeah that’s you
All these blessings that we can’t even count, that’s you too

Dear Mama
I turned into a grown ass man
But I’m still that little boy who’d never show up at class
Dear Mama
You’re more than just a woman, you’re like royalty
I had to write this song, cause it’s just the Mama’s boy in me

Dear Mama
You don’t gotta worry no more
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I hope you feel like the world is yours
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I don’t want you to feel no pain
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I wouldn’t be the man I am today
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
You don’t gotta worry no more
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I hope you feel like the world is yours
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I don’t want you to feel no pain
Dear Mama (Dear Mama)
I wouldn’t be the man I am today without my Mama

Remember driving me to the studio as a teenager?
You and dad would wait outside in the car till like 4 in the morning while I recorded
Cause I didn’t want my older friends to know that my parents drive me off and we’re two hours away from home
That’s Brenda Stevenson
Remember when I got stabbed and I was in the hospital and I was waking up and you faked a smile because you didn’t want to scare me and didn’t want me to know how bad it was?
That’s Brenda Stevenson
Remember that time the cops were looking for me and my friends and you came and got us and drove us home to hide from them, cause you didn’t want us to get in trouble?
That’s Brenda Stevenson
