He's got a t-shirt
Michael Jordan on the front
he's got knock knees
bigger than his baby face
you can't tell
this little boy he's not a man
no one
he'll listen to beside his gun

He's got
red hair that he tries to dye blue
he's got a girlfriend
and what's it mean to you now?
if he hits her once in a while
he ain't got nothing else to do

he's just a manchild

well he's handsome and he's got a nice car
he's straight out smart
and he knows he could go far
but that same knowledge
is like a dark cloud
he's got too much
he's far too proud

He's just a manchild

I can hear his mama crying
when you gonna go to bed?
you're wrestling every word you ever said
to your baby
but he's not your baby no more

t-shirt
dred-lock
freckle
semi-automatic
school book
soldier
no job
what's it mean to you?
too much
too little
mama
trying to raise her baby
drop-out
stay in
stay straight
bend the rules a little

no need
to ask why
he's just a manchild oh
so strong
so silly
lots of toys to make him feel big now
mama
you keep trying
keep trying like centuries past oh
keep trying
keep trying
I know you'll keep on trying
