Charlotte
by Huey Mack

Yeah, December 1991Charlotte Michael and Rick Cisely they gave birth to a son, uh
Named him Joseph Don Cisely and Rick packed his bags
Bet he didn't even miss me
My mom took abuse but always did what she had to do
To keep the food on the table and put me through school
Started saving up to move away cause she was scared
When Rick found out, he threw her down the stairs
Never understood how much she really cared
And no matter the circumstance, momma was always there
Even when it wasn't, she made everything fine
Nearly threw away her life just so I could have mine
And in the second grade I went to court and had my name changed
Now me and your father, we have the same name
And even though I never show it to you, I appreciate everything you went through
And I just want to say: thank you

Life has ups and downs
People, they come and go
But even when you're not around, I'm always going to keep you close
It's not about what we came from, it's who we end up to be
But just know I love you, just like you love meIn the third grade, moved to my cousin's in Tennessee
Only for three months, ain't know why I had to leave
Bags packed, tears rush, my heart was beatingI was scared and alone, I remember the feeling
I thought my momma didn't want me no moreI remember sitting crying on the living room floor
Thinking I'll never see you again
So young, heartbroken at the thought that I just lost my best friend
Found out a couple years ago that you were sick
And you just didn't want me to see you like this
And now you're sick again, but momma the only difference is
I'll be by your side till the end, cause I gotta repay you

Life has ups and downs
People, they come and go
But even when you're not around, I'm always going to keep you closeIt's not about what we came from, it's who we end up to be
But just know I love you, just like you love meYou taught me to always respect women
And I got the utmost respect after you raising two children all aloneI swear I'll never let my wife do the sameI swear I'll never let nobody ever have that painI got a girl and I love that you love her
Only approval I ever need is the one from my mother
You told me stay in school and be a doctor or lawyer
But still stuck with me when I became my own employer
Now things changed and I don't see you as much
But never a day pass you don't have all my love
And if a moment comes when you think you ain't got it
Know there's a photo of you in my wallerLike that's my momma

Life has ups and downs
People, they come and go
But even when you're not around, I'm always going to keep you closeIt's not about what we came from, it's who we end up to be
But just know I love you, just like you love me
