No is all you ever say

There you was standing in my way Each and every day No is what you always say Like when I was six and wanted to fly You said no took my wings and made me cry If I had jumped out of the tree I would have died And the time that the senior had asked me out You said no and made me shout Two years later he went to jail for rapping that girl and still is not out Or the party that girl had with no parents there You said no Even though dad did not care The cops were called and found drugs everywhere You was always in my way And no is what you always say Thank you mom for being that way Now I am the one who has to be in the way And no is all I ever say Maybe my boys will understand someday
