Keep Ya Head Upby: Tupac Shakur

Some say the blacker the berry the sweeter the juiceI say the darker the flesh then the deeper the rootsI give a holla to my sistas on welfare Tupac cares, and dont nobody else care

And uh I know they like to beat you down a lotwhen you come around the block brothas clown a lot But please dont cry , dry your eyes never let upForgive but dont forget girl keep your head up

And when he tells you you aint nothing dont believe him And if he cant learn to love you you should leave himcause sista you dont need himAnd I aint trying to gas you up , I just call em how I see emYou know what makes me unhappy When brothas make babies, and leave a young mother to be a pappy And since we all came from a womanGot our name from a woman and our game from a woman

I wonder why we take from our womenWhy we rape our women, do we hate our women?I think it's time to kill for our womenTime to heal our women, be real to our womenAnd if we don't we'll have a race of babiesThat will hate the ladies, that make the babiesAnd since a man can't make oneHe has no right to tell a woman when and where to create oneSo will the real men get upI know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up

Keep ya head up, oooo child things are gonna get easierooooo child things are gonna get brighter [2x]

Aiyyo, I remember Marvin Gaye, used to sing to meHe had me feeling like black was the thing to beAnd suddenly the ghetto didn't seem so toughAnd though we had it rough, we always had enough

I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the rulesRan with the local crew, and had a smoke or twoAnd I realize momma really paid the priceShe nearly gave her life, to raise me rightAnd all I had to give her was my pipe dreamOf how I'd rock the mic, and make it to the bright screenI'm tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen centsIt's hard to be legit and still pay the rent

And in the end it seems I'm heading for the penI try and find my friends, but they're blowin in the windLast night my buddy lost his whole familyIt's gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity

It seems the rain will never let upI try to keep my head up, and still keep from getting wet upYou know it's funny when it rains it poursThey got money for wars, but can't feed the poorSay there ain't no hope for the youth and the truth isit ain't no hope for the futureAnd then they wonder why we crazyI blame my mother, for turning my brother into a crack baby

We ain't meant to survive, cause it's a setupAnd even though you're fed upHuh, ya got to keep your head up

And uhTo all the ladies havin babies on they ownI know it's kind of rough and you're feelin all aloneDaddy's long gone and he left you by ya lonesomeThank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody else want emCause I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sureAnd if you fall, stand tall and comeback for moreCause ain't nothin worse than when your sonwants to know why his daddy don't love him no mo'

You can't complain you was dealt thishell of a hand without a man, feelin helplessBecause there's too many things for you to deal withDying inside, but outside you're looking fearlessWhile tears, is rollin down your cheeksYa steady hopin things don't all down this weekCause if it did, you couldn't take it, and don't blame meI was given this world I didn't make it

And now my son's gettin older and older and coldFrom havin the world on his shouldersWhile the rich kids is drivin BenzI'm still tryin to hold on to my survivin friendsAnd it's crazy, it seems it'll never let up, butplease... you got to keep your head up
