Dear Mama Lyrics - 2Pac

Review The Song (70)



You are appreciated

[Verse One: 2Pac]

When I was a young me and my mama had beef
Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face
Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool
with the big boys, breakin all the rules
I shed tears with my baby sister
Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
And even though we had different daddys, the same drama
When things went wrong we'd blame mama
I reminice on the stress I caused, it was hell
Huggin' on my mama from a jail cell
And who'd think in elementary?
Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day
sponsored links
And runnin from the police, that's right
Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside
And even as a crack fiend, mama
You always was a black queen, mama
I finally understand
for a woman it ain't easy tryin to raise a man
You always was committed
A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it
There's no way I can pay you back
But the plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus: Reggie Green & "Sweet Franklin" w/ 2Pac]

Lady...
Don't cha know we love ya? Sweet lady
Dear mama
Place no one above ya, sweet lady
You are appreciated
Don't cha know we love ya?

[second and third chorus, "And dear mama" instead of "Dear mama"]

[Verse Two: 2Pac]

Now ain't nobody tell us it was fair
No love from my daddy cause the coward wasn't there
He passed away and I didn't cry, cause my anger
wouldn't let me feel for a stranger
They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless, but all along
I was lookin for a father he was gone
I hung around with the Thugs, and even though they sold drugs
They showed a young brother love
I moved out and started really hangin
I needed money of my own so I started slangin
I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks
It feels good puttin money in your mailbox
I love payin rent when the rents due
I hope ya got the diamond necklace that I sent to you
Cause when I was low you was there for me
And never left me alone because you cared for me
And I could see you comin home after work late
You're in the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot plate
Ya just workin with the scraps you was given
And mama made miracles every Thanksgivin
But now the road got rough, you're alone
You're tryin to raise two bad kids on your own
And there's no way I can pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus]
Lady...
Don't cha know we love ya? Sweet lady
Dear mama
Place no one above ya, sweet lady
You are appreciated
Don't cha know we love ya?




[Verse Three: 2Pac]

Pour out some liquor and I reminsce, cause through the drama
I can always depend on my mama
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
You say the words that can get me back in focus
When I was sick as a little kid
To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
And all my childhood memories
Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
And even though I act craaazy
I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
There are no words that can express how I feel
You never kept a secret, always stayed real
And I appreciate, how you raised me
And all the extra love that you gave me
I wish I could take the pain away
If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day
Everything will be alright if ya hold on
It's a struggle everyday, gotta roll on
And there's no way I can pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated


[Chorus]
Lady...
Don't cha know we love ya? Sweet lady
Dear mama
Place no one above ya, sweet lady
You are appreciated
Don't cha know we love ya?


Sweet lady
And dear mama

Dear mama
Lady [3X]

Flowers die, Music fades, memories are forgotten but niggaz like you are treasured forever. | Reviewer: Luvuyo Diastro GQIRANA | 6/11/13

Pac was the best rapper in the world, i wish i could meet him in Dream land, because his lyrics of "dear mama" are the true reflection of me. Being raised by a single parent is not easy, however 2pac told us to hold on, everything will be fine.

Is million words are sufficent?? | Reviewer: Ex-Myth | 6/6/13

Hey Tupac ,where ever you are live happily...ur each and every words are very much stronger that any lecture by any politician , poet or who ever that is.....there are no much words that i can show respect to ya !!

Strugglers of Blacks' Peace in the World, | Reviewer: Alhassan Toure | 4/8/13

When i listen to 2 Pac's musics, i feel so joyful especially NO CHANGES and DEAR MAMA.
When i listen to MAKAVELY's Dear MAMA the idea comes to me that everybody gotta appreciate his own MAMA for the things she did for you during severals years.
2 PAC was a real neggae and he struggled for many years for Blacks in the U.S and now he's gone, one of his fights has been realised and God bless MAKAVELY, Amen!

Makaveli d great | Reviewer: Finney ojong (lauxing) | 2/13/13

sky is the limit | Reviewer: DaMarcus Pickett | 2/1/13

I feel tupac.My daddy gone,i learned something from this song it was love your family why they are still here because when there gone it anit nothin you can do to bring them back.If you dont love them then and there or be there for them you are going to seek what you sow.Thats what Tupac did,im 12 thats a shame,R.I.P Demeatrice Pickett and Tupac love DaMarcusPickett

My best rapper in the world, even though he dead.R.I.P Pac | Reviewer: Sejo (Tembisa) | 10/25/12

When I listen to dear mama, there comes a feeling that says, who is so special in this freakin world than my mama. Sometimes i even want to cry but i can't because y'all know that big niggers from the ghetto don't cry, no matter what situation they can find themselves in, still they wont cry.Dear mama is the best hip hop song ever written in the hip hop business, and many can agree with me on that, (we appreciate it).

The most touching piece dedicated to all mamas. | Reviewer: Bernar Yombayomba | 8/20/12

the most sensitive piece 2pac had unleashed.l'm one of his fans,though zimbabwean,had never been a nigga but still the message penetrates its way to the core of my heart.Initially God is great...gifted this man a responsible singer,lastly Amaru be at peace,with the nice work you handled,...that's it dear mama,this song has a calming effect to me especially in terms of being stressed,it exposes the reality of poverty being an outrage to humanity...
