    [Chorus]
    Ha ha ha ha ha oh
    N dey say oh oh oh
    Ha ha ha ha ha oh
    N dey say oh oh oh

    Hold up stop now let me get a look at ya,
    Damn girl I ain't seen you since prom,
    Come to think about it I can't believe its been that long,
    I heard your man locked down now how long he gone, Oh dat long
    How the hell he get time like that?
    Three strikes with possession, aww he ain't comin back,
    He left you with 2 kids and bills all around,
    Plus you found out he had another chick cross-town,
    It's always the darkness right before the sun rises
    And you gotta stay strong for the kids in their eyes and
    Please don't despise and go against all brothers and
    have a hatred in your heart and take it out on another,
    I hate to sound Tupacish now momma but keep your head up,
    But you gon' make it I promise you keep your head up
    And that, that don't kill you only makes you stronger
    And the will to succeed will only feed the hunger, Fo' Reel (Fo' Reel, Fo' Reel)

    [Chorus]

    I was at the gas station and a man walked past
    With his sign will work for food, clothes or cash
    and he asked if he could pump my gas, so I let him
    Clean the windshield and throw out the trash, so I let him (Hey)
    I even asked a brother his name, where he was from, got kids man and what's their ages
    He kinda stuttered for a second, he kinda looked surprised that anyone would even take an interest in his life
    He said young brother them the only words I done heard in the last year that wasn't no or get the **** away from here
    How could something so simple as general conversation
    Mean much more than general conversation? (Hey)
    You could tell life had beaten him down
    Like he was in the title fight and this might be his last round
    Sometimes the easiest things we take for granted
    Until they gone, then realize we even had it, Fo' Reel (Fo' Reel, Fo' Reel)

    [Chorus]

    I used to think that life had a plan for me
    Until I realized life had to be planned by me, see that's the key
    I only deal with what I can see cause over history, mystery brought us nothing but misery
    Man more people done died in the name of the lord
    Than in any natural disaster, disease or gangwars
    Before guns there was swords and they was killing each other
    and what's changed to this day still killing each other
    Killing a brother while another mother cries for help
    Man! we need to help a brother find them self
    Feed em light 1, 2, 3
    Hey! that's something every brother should see and that's Fo' Reel,
    and that's Fo' Reel, and that's Fo' Reel

    [Chorus: x3]
