She 04:54
See, she wondered in mid-summer how to celebrate his birthday. She never knew what little boys could do until she had one. Tons of fun, hours of play, she loved when her little man smiled at her his certain way. Well today's his day... let's celebrate. Let's celebrate little man's birthday. And even though Daddy ain't around because he was gunned down by NY pig pound on the same date let's celebrate little man's birthday. And may he live longer... stronger... faster. Old enough to maybe retaliate with his toast and boast to the neighborhood folk of how he terrorizes blue coats because see, she wondered in mid-summer how to celebrate his birthday. See, she wondered in mid-summer how to celebrate his birthday. She never knew what little boys could do until she had one. Teenage years amongst his peers brought black boy pressure none the lesser. Sessions of aggression rehearsed on Nostrand Ave BK abrasive, sly and persuasive when he swaggered or staggered in the morning twilight See, she wondered in mid-summer how to celebrate his birthday. See, she wondered what would become of her son, full of discomfort His situation turned mother against child illicit occupation equivalent to incarceration lifestyle led black boy wild now he's seven years later into manhood See, she wondered in mid-summer how to celebrate his birthday. He's the black ethereal grand imperial being from the unseen light he walks with a bop, swaggers to the right, up the ave. See, she wondered in mid-summer how to celebrate his birthday. She never knew what little boys could do until she had one. 26 without a witness he was wandering the city streets. She never knew what little boys could do and how they often wanted to compete. He settled his story of American glory by doing fast things in the wild life See, she wondered in mid-summer what would happen to him in the night. And see, she wondered in mid-summer what to do how to celebrate how to live how to be free. See, she wondered in mid-summer how to celebrate his birthday. credits
