Kirk Franklin – A Whole Nation Lyrics

Share

It takes a whole nation to help me raise this generation

When you look out of the window, tell me what do you see?

If it’s a world without a father then you’re looking at me

It takes a whole nation to help me raise this generation

My respect to the mothers that be holding it down

But it sho’ would be nice to have my daddy around

All I need is one mike, I know you can see

I’m not a rapper but there are some dudes that are just like me

Every time you took a picture with you and your family

It was only two people when it’s supposed to be three

It was supposed to be me asking why is the sky blue?

When I grow up I wanna be like you

Yo daddy, can you teach me how to tie my shoes

Can I go with you to work so I can see what you do?

Let me see what you do, so I can love my kid too

But you didn’t stick around, was that too much to ask of you?

Too much to get a blueprint, no, too much to show the way, no

That’s the reason why this building is not finished today

We’re lost boys, still we wanna believe that

My daddy’s coming back, he didn’t forget about me

Like a child after school we sit and we wait

I know that you gon’ come, but that was ’78

It takes a whole nation to help me raise this generation

When you look out of the window, tell me what do you see?

If it’s a world without a father then you’re looking at me

It takes a whole nation to help me raise this generation

My respect to the mothers that be holding it down

But it sho’ would be nice to have my daddy around

They say raising kids, it’s the parent’s responsibility

But it’s a million of y’all and only one of me

What happened to the village? As far as I can see

It’s been burned down by this modern day slavery


For eleven years I’ve been living here

I’ve seen momma cry more than eleven tears

Watching momma be daddy while he slips away

Does Jesus really hear kids when they pray?

Momma working two jobs, she can’t do it alone

She shouldn’t have to, she didn’t get knocked up on her own

And I know that, baby, momma’s drama brothers is real

But before you close the door don’t forget how it feels, remember

And daddy missed my game, and I made a touchdown

I won the talent show, but you weren’t around

If a girl breaks my heart, what I do with the pain?

And one more thing, daddy, can you tell me my name?

It takes a whole nation to help me raise this generation

When you look out of the window, tell me what do you see?

If it’s a world without a father then you’re looking at me

It takes a whole nation to help me raise this generation

My respect to the mothers that be holding it down

But it sho’ would be nice to have my daddy around

Ain’t nothing gonna break me down

Can there nobody take me down

Can there nobody break me down, me down

Ain’t nothing gonna break me down

Can there nobody take me down

Ain’t nothing gonna break me down, me down

Ain’t nothing gonna break me down

Can there nobody take me down

Can there nobody break me down, me down

Ain’t nothing gonna break me down

Can there nobody take me down

Ain’t nothing gonna break me down, me down

It takes a whole nation to help me raise this generation

When you look out of the window, tell me what do you see?

If it’s a world without a father then you’re looking at me

It takes a whole nation to help me raise this generation

My respect to the mothers that be holding it down

But it sho’ would be nice to have my daddy around
