Draga mama

Engleski

Dear mama

You are appreciated

[Verse One: 2Pac]

When I was young me and my mama had beef
Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face
Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool
with the big boys, breakin all the rules
I shed tears with my baby sister
Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
And even though we had different daddy's, the same drama
When things went wrong we'd blame mama
I reminice on the stress I caused, it was hell
Huggin on my mama from a jail cell
And who'd think in elementary?
Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day
And runnin from the police, that's right
Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside
And even as a crack fiend, mama
You always was a black queen, mama
I finally understand
for a woman it ain't easy tryin to raise a man
You always was committed
A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it
There's no way I can pay you back
But the plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus: Reggie Green & "Sweet Franklin" w/ 2Pac]

Lady...
Don't cha know we love ya? Sweet lady
Dear mama
Place no one above ya, sweet lady
You are appreciated
Don't cha know we love ya?

[second and third chorus, "And dear mama" instead of "Dear mama"]

[Verse Two: 2Pac]

Now ain't nobody tell us it was fair
No love from my daddy cause the coward wasn't there
He passed away and I didn't cry, cause my anger
wouldn't let me feel for a stranger
They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless, but all along
I was lookin for a father he was gone
I hung around with the Thugs, and even though they sold drugs
They showed a young brother love
I moved out and started really hangin
I needed money of my own so I started slangin
I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks
It feels good puttin money in your mailbox
I love payin rent when the rent's due
I hope ya got the diamond necklace that I sent to you
Cause when I was low you was there for me
And never left me alone because you cared for me
And I could see you comin home after work late
You're in the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot plate
Ya just workin with the scraps you was given
And mama made miracles every Thanksgivin
But now the road got rough, you're alone
You're tryin to raise two bad kids on your own
And there's no way I can pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus]

[Verse Three: 2Pac]

Pour out some liquor and I reminsce, cause through the drama
I can always depend on my mama
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
You say the words that can get me back in focus
When I was sick as a little kid
To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
And all my childhood memories
Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
And even though I act craaazy
I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
There are no words that can express how I feel
You never kept a secret, always stayed real
And I appreciate, how you raised me
And all the extra love that you gave me
I wish I could take the pain away
If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day
Everything will be alright if ya hold on
It's a struggle everyday, gotta roll on
And there's no way I can pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

[Chorus]

Sweet lady
And dear mama

Draga mama

Cijenim te

(Prva kitica: 2Pac)

Kad sam bio mlad, mama i ja smo se posvađali
Sedamnaest godina i izbačen na ulicu
Iako, pogledavši unatrag, mislio sam da joj nikad neću vidjeti lice
Ne postoji žena koja bi mogla nadomjestiti moju mamu
Suspendiran iz škole, bojao se ići kući, bio sam budala
s velikim dečkima, kršio sva pravila
Lio sam suze s mlađom sestrom
Godinama smo bili siromašniji od ostale djece
I iako smo imali različite očeve, proživljavali smo istu dramu
Kad bi nešto pošlo po krivu, okrivljavali bismo mamu
Sjećam se stresa koji sam izazvao, to je bio pakao
Grlio sam mamu kroz zatvorsku ćeliju
A tko bi pomislio u osnovnoj?
Heeej! Vidim robijašnicu, jednog dana
I bježanje od policije, tako je
Mama me uhvatila i išibala po stražnjici
I, mama, čak i kao drogerašica,
Mama, uvijek si bila crna kraljica
Konačno razumijem
da ženi nije lako pokušati odgojiti muškarca
Uvijek si bila odana
Siromašna samohrana majka koja živi od socijalne pomoći, reci mi kako si uspjela
Nema načina da ti to otplatim
Ali moj plan je da ti pokažem da razumijem
Cijenim te

(Pripjev: Reggie Green & "Sweet Franklin" & 2Pac)

Damo...
Zar ne znaš da te volimo? Slatka damo
Draga majko
Ne postoji nitko iznad tebe, slatka damo
Cijenim te
Zar ne znaš da te volimo?

(Druga kitica: 2Pac)

Nitko nam ne može reći da je to bilo u redu
Nisam dobivao očinsku ljubav jer kukavica nije bio tu
Umro je, a ja nisam plakao, jer mi moj bijes
nije dopuštao da išta osjećam za stranca
Kažu da sam u krivu i da nemam srca, ali cijelo sam vrijeme
Tražio oca, on nije bio tu
Družio sam se s banditima, i iako su prodavali drogu,
Pokazali su ljubav malom bratu
Odselio sam se i počeo intenzivno uličariti
Trebao mi je vlastiti novac pa sam počeo prodavati drogu
Nisam kriv jer, iako sam prodavao bobe,
Dobar je osjećaj stavljati novac u svoj poštanski sandučić
Volim platiti račun kad je to dug
Nadam se da si dobila dijamantnu ogrlicu koju sam ti poslao
Jer, kad god bih pao, bila si tu za mene
I nikad me nisi ostavila samog jer si se brinula za mene
Mogu te vidjet kako dolaziš kasno kući s posla
U kuhinji si, pokušavaš nam spremiti večeru
Radila si samo s onim što su ti dali
I radila si čuda za svaki Dan zahvalnosti
Ali sad je cesta postala kvrgava, sama si
Pokušavaš sama odgojiti dva zločesta djeteta
I nema načina da ti to otplatim
Ali moj plan je da ti pokažem da razumijem
Cijenim te

(Pripjev)

(Treća kitica: 2Pac)

Prolijevam alkohol i prisjećam se jer u teškim situacijama,
Uvijek sam mogao računati na mamu
I kad izgleda da sam beznadan
Govoriš mi riječi koje me vrate u normalu
Kad sam bio bolestan kao dječak,
Da me održiš sretnim nije bilo granica za ono što si učinila
I sva moja sjećanja iz djetinjstva
Puna su slatkih stvari koje si učinila za me
I iako sam se ponašao luuudo,
Moram zahvaliti Bogu što si me napravila ovakvog
Ne postoje riječi kojima bih mogao pokazati kako se osjećam
Nikad nisi ništa tajila, uvijek si bila realna
I cijenim kako si me odgojila
I svu dodatnu ljubav koju si mi dala
Želio bih da mogu odstraniti bol
Ako se uspiješ probiti kroz noć, tu je svijetli dan
Sve će biti u redu ako se držiš
To je svakidašnja borba, moraš nastaviti
I nema načina da ti to otplatim
Ali moj plan je da ti pokažem da razumijem
Cijenim te

(Pripjev)

Slatka damo
I draga majko
