PRIORITIES (Get Your Act Together)


You had a life anyone would wish for
You had two beautiful boys
You went up in smoke
Your boys set aside
And now you have the unmitigated gall to cry

Excuse me Ė I donít mean to sound insensitive
Itís just that Iím all grown up now
Itís too late to be what you are to me
I donít think you know how

Lady Ė Itís time to get your act together
Lately Ė Youíve been heavy on my mind
Lady Ė I bet you think that I donít love you
Guess what?
You never showed me how

I cried under my sheets at night
Were you there?
I prayed for you on my knees every night
Did you care?
I saw things a child shouldnít see
Were you aware?
My life is proof that sometimes life just ainít fair
Excuse the insensitivity
But you werenít there

How can I love you?
I donít even know you
Itís driving me crazy Ďcause I cannot show you
The pain in my life and the torture I go through
Öof not knowing love
Tell me
What do I owe you?

Lady Ė You need to get yoí act together
Lately Ė Youíve been heavy on my mind
Maybe Ė You think that I donít love you
Guess what, Mama? Ė You never showed me how
