Lyrics of Keep Ya Head Up – Tupac

Keep Ya Head Up – Tupac

[Verse One:]

Some say the blacker the berry, the
sweeter the juice
I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots
I
give a holler to my sisters on welfare
Tupac cares, and don’t nobody else
care
And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot
When you come around
the block brothas clown a lot
But please don’t cry, dry your eyes, never let
up
Forgive but don’t forget, girl keep your head up
And when he tells you
you ain’t nuttin don’t believe him
And if he can’t learn to love you you
should leave him
Cause sista you don’t need him
And I ain’t tryin to gas
ya up, I just call em how I see em
You know it makes me unhappy (what’s
that)
When brothas make babies, and leave a young mother to be a pappy
And
since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a
woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we
hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women
Time to heal our
women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of
babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man
can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create
one
So will the real men get up
I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your
head up

[Chorus]

Keep ya head up, oooo child things are
gonna get easier
ooooo child things are gonna get brighter
[2x]

[Verse Two:]

Aiyyo, I remember Marvin Gaye,
used to sing ta me
He had me feelin like black was tha thing to be
And
suddenly tha ghetto didn’t seem so tough
And though we had it rough, we
always had enough
I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the
rules
Ran with the local crew, and had a smoke or two
And I realize momma
really paid the price
She nearly gave her life, to raise me right
And all
I had ta give her was my pipe dream
Of how I’d rock the mic, and make it to
tha bright screen
I’m tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen cents
It’s
hard to be legit and still pay tha rent
And in the end it seems I’m headin
for tha pen
I try and find my friends, but they’re blowin in the wind
Last
night my buddy lost his whole family
It’s gonna take the man in me to conquer
this insanity
It seems tha rain’ll never let up
I try to keep my head up,
and still keep from gettin wet up
You know it’s funny when it rains it
pours
They got money for wars, but can’t feed the poor
Say there ain’t no
hope for the youth and the truth is
it ain’t no hope for tha future
And
then they wonder why we crazy
I blame my mother, for turning my brother into
a crack baby
We ain’t meant to survive, cause it’s a setup
And even though
you’re fed up
Huh, ya got to keep your head
up

[Chorus]

[Verse Three:]

And uhh
To all
the ladies havin babies on they own
I know it’s kinda rough and you’re feelin
all alone
Daddy’s long gone and he left you by ya lonesome
Thank the Lord
for my kids, even if nobody else want em
Cause I think we can make it, in
fact, I’m sure
And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more
Cause
ain’t nuttin worse than when your son
wants to kno why his daddy don’t love
him no mo’
You can’t complain you was dealt this
hell of a hand without a
man, feelin helpless
Because there’s too many things for you to deal
with
Dying inside, but outside you’re looking fearless
While tears, is
rollin down your cheeks
Ya steady hopin things don’t all down this
week
Cause if it did, you couldn’t take it, and don’t blame me
I was given
this world I didn’t make it
And now my son’s getten older and older and
cold
From havin the world on his shoulders
While the rich kids is drivin
Benz
I’m still tryin to hold on to my survivin friends
And it’s crazy, it
seems it’ll never let up, but
please… you got to keep your head up
