City High – What Would You Do?

City High – What Would You Do?

[Verse 1: Robby]

Boys and girls, wanna hear a true story?

Saturday night I was at this real wild party

They had the liquor overflowing the cup

About five or six strippers tryna work for a buck

And I took one girl outside with me

Her name was Lonni, she went to junior high with me

I said, “Why you up in there dancin’ for cash?

I guess a whole a lot’s changed since I seen you last.”

She said

[Chorus: Claudette & Robby]

What would you do if your son was at home

Crying all alone on the bedroom floor

‘Cause he’s hungry?

And the only way to feed him is to

Sleep with a man for a little bit of money

And his daddy’s gone

Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown

I ain’t got a job now

So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life

Mmm

[Verse 2: Ryan Toby]

Girl, you ain’t the only one with a baby

That’s no excuse to be livin’ all crazy

Then she looked me right square in the eye

And said every day I wake up hopin’ to die

She said, “[Nigga], I know about pain ’cause

Me and my sister ran away so my daddy couldn’t rape us

Before I was a teenager

I done been through more [shit] that you can’t even relate to”

[Chorus: City High (Ryan)]

What would you do if your son was at home (Oh)

Crying all alone on the bedroom floor (Woahh, woah)

‘Cause he’s hungry?

And the only way to feed him is to

Sleep with a man for a little bit of money (Yeah, woah)

And his daddy’s gone

Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown

I ain’t got a job now

So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life

Mmm (Yeah)

[Breakdown: Ryan]

Yo, wait, hold up, hold up, hold up

Hold up, stop the record, yo

Stop the record

You should you ain’t gonna be going out

Like this man

[Bridge: (Claudette) Ryan and Toby]

Hold up!

(What would you do?)

Get up on my feet and let go of every excuse

(What would you do?)

‘Cause I wouldn’t want my baby to go through what I went through

(Come on, what would you do?)

Get up on my feet and stop making tired excuses

(What would you do?)

Girl, I know if my mother can do it, baby, you can do it

[Chorus: City High (Ryan)]

What would you do if your son was at home

Crying all alone on the bedroom floor (Crying all alone, yeah)

‘Cause he’s hungry?

And the only way to feed him is to (Only way to feed him)

Sleep with a man for a little bit of money

And his daddy’s gone (Nooo)

Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown (Yeah)

I ain’t got a job now (Yeahhh)

So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life

Mmm

[Chorus 2: Robby & Ryan rap-singing]

What would you do if your son was at home

Crying all alone on the bedroom floor

‘Cause he’s hungry?

And the only way to feed him is to

Sleep with a man for a little bit of money

And his daddy’s gone

Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown

I ain’t got a job now

So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life

Come on

[Chorus: City High]

What would you do if your son was at home

Crying all alone on the bedroom floor

‘Cause he’s hungry?

And the only way to feed him is to

Sleep with a man for a little bit of money

And his daddy’s gone

Somewhere smokin’ rock now, in and out of lockdown

I ain’t got a job now

So for you this is just a good time, but for me this is what I call life

Mmm
