I'm holdin on a rope
Got me ten feet off the ground
And i'm hearin what your sayin
But i just can't make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but waaiiitt
Tell me that you're sorry
Didn't think I'd turn around
And sayyy

[Lil Wayne]

OK, I'm talkin about a
Good Girl Gone Bad
Crooked World, wrong path
Right Mom, wrong dad

I sing this song mad but not mad enough to shoot you
But it just eats me up like some bbq from Luther's
In the morning with the roosters
On the corner with the boosters
And she's the freshcut and they're on her like sutures
And I wanna talk to her
But her momma has to school her
I wanna see her better
She's the weather of my future

I don't wanna see another hurricane
Baby you can kill the pain
If you just let me explain
Trust me I know what I'm sayin'
You will end up on the track of an oncoming train
Stuck in the passenger seat
Trying do the fast lane

[Bun B]
Well once upon a time there was a mom and a dad
Who on the outside had everything people wished they had
A beautiful daughter two story house two car garage
And a white picket fence wrapped around the front yard

See daddy was a doctor
And mommy was a banker
Mommy's job got outsourced
So now mommy's drinker

Daddy had a malpractice suit
Now he's a snorter
And all this shits takin place
right in front of their daughter
She says, �Daddy what's wrong?�
But he's just too high
�Mommy what we gon' do?�
She just get drunk and cry
Caught in the middle of two wrongs trying to do right
Looking for answers alone in the darkness of night
They say...

I'm holdin on a rope
Got me ten feet off the ground
And i'm hearin what your sayin
But i just can't make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but waaiiitt
Tell me that you're sorry
Didn't think I'd turn around
And say that it's too late to apologize
It's too late
I said it's too late to apologize
it's too late

    General CommentI woyld like this song a lot more if the chipmunks weren't in it. It would be cool if Lil Wayne did that part instead... but still a great song

    General CommentI like this even better than the Timbaland version..it's a pretty deep song, you feel sorry for the girl caught in the middle of the parents shit listening to this song, and the sad part is that this scenario is only too common in a lot of households.

    General CommentI think i'd like it better if it wasn't chipmunk-y. But I guess that's what happens when you speed it up...

    General CommentYou realize this isn't a real song? It's just the acapella from "good girl gone bad" put over the "apologize" beat with some added percussion in the background.

    General CommentAnother one of those songs that defines my life with very few alterations, sadly. I like this far better than the Timbaland version but that is probably due to the fact that it wasn't played nearly as much. Great flow.
