A song about a man's resolve to satisfy his woman, and the world behind her; too bad she's so darn "lonely" all the time.

lyrics

SONG: Make Change

VERSE 1:
I be hunter; work for pay.
Sweat for m'woman;
love her way.
"Ooh!", she tells me,
and I don't mind
when she's blowing
up my line.

PRE-CHORUS:
I keep my nose
to th'grindstone,
but while I'm working,
she's home alone.
Baby's lonely;
she thinks its strange,
and I gotta do somethin'!
..but...

CHORUS:
How can I make change?!
Could I do it if I
was at home with you?
If we do the things that
we used to do?
Maybe if I dropped down
to minimum wage?
..if I took the stage?!

How can I make change?!

If we made a pact
not to fuss and fight?
Could I do it, if I was to put
you in white?
If I forget the past,
and just take it light?
..if I work all night?

How can I make change?!
(Reprise)

VERSE 2:
M'shifts grow longer;
nights get cold.
While I work doubles,
homies get bold.
They watch my TV;
they eat my food.
My woman ask me
"Why all the 'tude?"

PRE-CHORUS:
..'cos I keep my nose
To th'grindstone,
but while I'm working,
you're home alone.
I know, you're lonely;
and think its strange,
and I'm gonna do somethin'!
..but...

CHORUS:
How can I make change?!

Could I do it if I
was at home with you?
If we do the things that
we used to do?
Maybe if I dropped down
to minimum wage?
..if I took the stage?!

How can I make change?!

If we made a pact
not to fuss and fight?
Could I do it, if I was to put
you in white?
If I forget the past,
and just take it light?
..if I work all night?

How can I make change?!
(Break)

VERSE 3:
Off work early;
I'm coming home.
'wanna celebrate witcha,
but you're not alone.
And what I saw,
I could never unsee.
Good thing all the money
was being made by me!

PRE-CHORUS:
..'cos I keep my nose
to th'grindstone,
and I be working,
to build a happy home.
..said she got so lonely;
I always thought it was strange,
so, I did somethin', after all..

CHORUS:
I straight-up made change!

Didn't matter that I
was at home with you.
When I did the things that
We used to do.
Not even if I
dropped down
to minimum wage,
nor when I took the stage.

See, I done made change!

You can keep the pact
not to fuss and fight.
I'd be lying if I was to put
you in white.
If I forget the past,
And just take it light?
You'd like that, right?!

As you can see,
I make change.

End.
