All A Child Needs
Pens, pencils, paper and books all kids need today is a catchy hook
Get rich and famous - shoot for the stars
When in reality the sky is much too far
Do you ever wonder why some kids are trouble makers?
Just take a look at their creators
Parents who can’t provide, out here just trying to stay alive
It is hard to mirror a life you’ve never had so how do we expect these kids to not be bad?
Drugs, alcohol and sex what else do you expect?
They do as they see and then come to school talking about sippin’ on lean
Do they even know that that means?
They need role models – teachers if you will
Because one day they are going to slip up and then it will be real
It’s an on-going cycle so I challenge you to break it
It will be worth it the day you see them make it
Pens, pencils, paper and books all a kid needs is someone who cares
Screw a catchy hook
