I’m from Oakland California

where every one tells you

” BE SAFE” after they see you

I’m from a family of six

That had their ups and downs

Where there is always an argument

between my parents and my brother

I’m from where you can’t do what someone tells you,

you’re considered STUPID, DUMB, or LAME

I’m from a place where if you have big BOOBS and have a BOOTY

you have the PERFECT body,

but you’re a HOE

If you don’t have none of that you’re NOT perfect

I’m from Oakland California

 Where anything GOOD or BAD can happend
