Talk To You Later

3/19/2018

In reality, I attempted to write songs dealing with the short language that many use when texting.  It also included RUOK, Text Language and others.  Below are the lyrics for TTYL.

TTYL

TTYL

Yeah I can’t tell

I’ll call you up if I need bail

TTYL

Gimmie a break

I’ll holla back cause I got money to make

Husband died, old and ill

Left my mom with a bunch of bills

So she started working real estate

Parties in the living room they stay up late

tip toe down the hall to see whats up

Bottle for bottle and cup for cup

On the weekends I go visit my dad

Stepma’s in the bed with me  he gets mad

So when he’s raging she won’t get slapped

8 years old I’m in the mall all day

When my mom needs a getaway

And  I call her from the phone But she don’t come right away

20 bucks now I’m out of loot

bows and barrettes is what I boost

my p’s got clean at the same time

at 11 the choice is mine

cause my ma wants to move out of state

so I chose my dad cause I want to stay

TTYL

Yeah I can’t tell

I’ll call you up if I need bail

TTYL

Yeah Gimmie a break

I’ll holla back cause I got money to make

I wasn’t used to dads strict rules

first to assume I’d act a fool

Me and my step bro we are the same age

But we don’t get treated the same way

He can have girls come spend the night

Now I feel I gotta fight for my right

$10 a week for my lunch

What I wanted wasn’t much

Dad said no makeup

But I couldn’t resist

12 years old I had a face full of zits

started stealing makeup in the grocery store

I had 2 bucks but it costed more

And there’s a rap show that I wanna see

So my daddy made a deal with me

Wash the windows inside and out

And I will give you 23

TTYL

Yeah I can’t tell

I’ll call you up if I need bail

TTYL

Yeah Gimmie a break

I’ll holla back cause I got money to make

I wanna be  like the other girls

Wearing lip gloss with hair in curls

But I don’t even know how to deal with it

So it’s always dry and my ends are split

Silver jewelry  on my neck and wrist

Thinking I’d get gold if I was rich

layaway for all my fits

$20 a month for about 6

TTYL

Yeah I can’t tell

I’ll call you up if I need bail

TTYL

Yeah Gimmie a break

I’ll holla back cause I got money to make

In high school living with my dad

had to ask for maxi pads

and my dad just up and snapped

why don’t I manage money better than that

Every 2 weeks I get 30 bucks

And that sum includes my lunch

And anything I want after that

So I’ll just skip lunch and get the maxi pads

thinking any minute could get put in the street

hospital bills like 40 G’s

Cant ask for another thing

Have a wedding no longer a dream

So I think and search and seek

And try to find what it is I need it in the street

Borrowed the loot for my first O Z

And that’s how my p’s made a hustler out of me

TTYL

Yeah I can’t tell

I’ll call you up if I need bail

TTYL

Yeah Gimmie a break

I’ll holla back cause I got money to make
