Bag Lady
Erykah Badu Lyrics


Bag lady you gone hurt your back
Dragging all them bags like that
I guess nobody ever told you
All you must hold onto, is you, is you, is you

One day all them bags gon' get in your way
One day all them bags gon' get in your way
I said one day all them bags gon' get in your way
One day all them bags gon' get in your way, so pack light,
Pack light, mm, pack light, pack light, oh ooh

Bag lady you gon' miss your bus
You can't hurry up, 'cause you got too much stuff
When they see you coming, niggas take off running
From you it's true, oh yes they do

One day he gon' say you crowding my space
One day he gon' say you crowding my space
I said one day he gon' say you crowding my space
One day he gon' say you crowding my space so, pack light
Pack light, mm, pack light, pack light, ooh ooh

Girl I know, sometimes it's hard and we can't let go
Oh when someone hurts you oh so bad inside
You can't deny it you can't stop crying
So oh, oh, oh, if you start breathin' babe
You won't believe it, it feels so much better, so much better baby
Bag lady, let it go let it go let it go let it go oh
Girl you don't need it
Bet ya love could make it better
Bet ya love can make it better
Bet ya love can make it better, need someone to love you right
Bet ya love can make it better
Bet ya love I bet ya love I bet ya
Bet ya love can make it better, baby baby
Bet ya love can make it better
Bet ya love can make it better, hey hey
Bet ya love can make it better,
I bet ya love I bet you love
Bet ya love can make it better
I bet ya love I bet you love, oh oh oh (Bet ya love can make it better)
Bet ya love can make it better (oh oh oh oh)
Bet ya love can make it better
Bag lady, let it go let it go let it go let it go oh
Yeah you don't need it

Cried watching this... Songs like this one, will live Forever. I use to just sing to it as a Child but never understood the lyrics until now as an Adult.

In life we go through alot of Challenges and Hardships but they serve a purpose so we have to keep pushing forward and understand that we can survive and it gets better.

When She said, "If you just start Breathing" 💜 My God, that is the truth. Peace and Happiness is a Choice and you have to stay determined to keep it.

"Pack Light" and do not stress yourself with the evil in this World. Learn to Meditate and Receive Healing so you do not get sick from depression.

Surround yourself with Positive People, Watch Positive Content, Purchase Items that make life a little more relaxing such as soft plush socks and plush bath rugs...lol Even the little things can aid in making life easier for you to enjoy.

I am so thankful for Music that uplifts ppl and encourages them to keep moving forward in this Journey of Life.

Thanks Erykah for this Beautiful Song 💜

I love how she showed the little children at the end with bags being passed to them symbolizing how parents can pass their "baggage" down to their children...creating a never ending cycle

@Helen the middle part with the town house and elevator reminds me of a 1960s movie similar to the Beatles I saw in 1989.

Erykah Badu said that she wrote her music for 90s babies. She knew that by the time we got grown that we’d understand her messages in her music. ❤️.
