Jokes on You

Jokes on You

You said I would never make it to see 18
Well the jokes on you
You said I would never make it out of the hood
Well the jokes on you
Said the streets would see me before I see myself
Well the jokes on you
You said I’d be either in jail or in prison
Well the jokes on you
You said for only I, bars will only be life
Whether they be metal or what I write
Well the jokes on you
You said that my father wouldn’t stay by my side
Well the jokes on you
You said because of drugs, my mother would die
Well the jokes on you
Never thought I’d make it anywhere
Yeah, the jokes on you
Told the people that I was a problem
That I would never make it to college
The jokes on you
You said I’d become a product of my environment
That jokes on you
I got my diploma, I’m in college
My soul never died and my father’s still there
Yeah, this black boy made it
April fools, fool, the jokes on you
