Ms. Jackson Lyrics - OutKast

Review The Song (3)



[Andre 3000]
Yeah this one right here goes out to all the baby's mamas, mamas...
Mamas, mamas, baby mamas, mamas
Yeah, go like this

CHORUS: Andre 3000
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times

[Big Boi]
My baby's drama mama, don't like me
She be doin things like havin them boys come from her neighborhood
sponsored links
to the studio tryin to fight me
She need to get a, piece of the american pie and take her bite out
That's my house, I'll disconnect the cable and turn the lights out
And let her know her grandchild is a baby, and not a paycheck
Private school, daycare shit, medical bills, I pay that
I love your mom and everything, but see I ain't the one who laid down
She wanna rib you up to start a custody war, my lawyers stay down
She never got a chance
to hear my side of the story we was divided
She had fish fries and cookouts
for my child's birthday I ain't invited
Despite it, I show her the utmost respect when I fall through
All you, do is defend that lady when I call you, yeah

CHORUS:
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times

[Andre 3000]
Me and your daughter.. got a special thang goin on
You say it's puppy love (arf arf arf)
We say it's full grown (ARF ARF WOOF!)
Hope that we feel this.. feel this way forever
You can plan a pretty picnic
but you can't predict the weather, Ms. Jackson

Ten times out of nine, now if I'm lyin; fine
The quickest muzzle throw it on my mouth and I'll decline
King meets queen, then the puppy love thing, together dream
bout that crib with the Goodyear swing
on the oak tree, I hope we feel like this forever
Forever, forever, ever, forever, ever?
Forever never seems that long until you're grown
And notice that the day by day ruler can't be too long
Ms. Jackson my intentions were good I wish I could
become a magician to abracadabra all the sadder
thoughts of me, thoughts of she, thoughts of he
Askin what happened to the feelin that her and me
Had, I pray so much about it need some knee, pads
It happened for a reason one can't be, mad
So know this, know that everything is cool
And yes I will be present on the first day of school,
and graduation

CHORUS:
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times

[Big Boi]
Uh, uh, yeah
"Look at the way he treats me"
Shit, look at the way you treat me
You see your little nosy-ass homegirls
done got your ass sent up the creek G
Without a paddle, you left to straddle
and ride this thing on out
Now you and your girl ain't speakin no more
cause my dick all in her mouth
You know what I'm talking about Jealousy, infidelity, envy
Cheating to beating, and D to the G they be the same thing
So who you placin the blame on, you keep on singin the same song
Let bygones be bygones, you can go on and get the hell on
You and your mama

CHORUS:
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times
I'm sorry Ms. Jackson [OOOH]
I am for real
Never meant to make your daughter cry
I apologize a trillion times

Reply to Mark "Mrs Jackson = America" | Reviewer: Bryan | 12/14/12

Interesting perspective but the song is about a failed relationship that resulted in a chid raised in a broken home. Mrs. Jackson is his baby mama's mama, aka mother in law. The song is very literal and you are reading into more than you need to.

For example, you say, "And let her know her grandchild is a baby, and not a paycheck = The future generation is being sold, society is made up of human beings not commodities and walking votes. - Private school, daycare shit, medical bills, I pay that = Americans pay taxes loyally, even under hardship and significant financial pressure"

He is saying he will take financial responsibility for the child but he doesn't think it's his responsibility to cover her (baby mama's) bills too.

Truth about Ms Jackson | Reviewer: Marc | 6/12/12

These Lyrics are about America (Ms. Jackson = America)

I'm sorry Ms. Jackson = I'm sorry America, but

I am for real = Expressing the regret of going against mainstream views and its repercussions

Never meant to make your daughter cry = We

I apologize a trillion times = Sarcastic and solemn description of the desperation of this realization, insincere but melancholy at the same time

My baby's drama mama, don't like me = This is not referring to the female lover character, but the mother/America, baby = my lover; drama mama = America, America the drama queen doesn't like competition, she wants to protect her interests, see Pink Floyd - Mother

She need to get a, piece of the american pie and take her bite out = America as a society is vengeful, and as a society we consume without consideration

That's my house, I'll disconnect the cable and turn the lights out = We were all born essentially taught to believe in the 'American Dream' but those who are awake will disconnect from the propaganda and stop funding the system

She be doin things like havin them boys come from her neighborhood to the studio tryin to fight me = America has become a police state, quietly silencing and moving against free speech

And let her know her grandchild is a baby, and not a paycheck = The future generation is being sold, society is made up of human beings not commodities and walking votes

Private school, daycare shit, medical bills, I pay that = Americans pay taxes loyally, even under hardship and significant financial pressure

I love your mom and everything, but see I ain't the one who laid down = Most folks love America, but most Americans did nothing to influence the system, the system is doing its own thing


She wanna rib you up to start a custody war, my lawyers stay down = American system of politics seeks to confuse people about "who is American", lawyers are serving the system above all, the game is rigged

She never got a chance
to hear my side of the story we was divided = America ignores her critics by dividing the people through useless "democracy"

There is more to this interpretation but find out the rest on your own from here

Obvious the shit was pretty nicest n the sms to ms Jacs hopefully touched her in many ways,I appreciate the whole song,from the beat to rapping style which makes the OUTKAST appear different from other Mcs.
