Once I was 7 years old, my mama told me “Go  and make friends so you won’t be lonely”

Once I was 7 Years old

 

It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger

Pushing each other to the limits we were learning quicker

By 11 smoking herbs and drinking burnin’ liquor

Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure

Once I was 11 years old, my daddy told me go get yourself a wife for you’ll be lonely

Once I was 11 years old..

 

I always had that dream like my daddy before me

So I write started write a  song  I started write story

Something about that glory just always seem to bore me

Cause those I really love will ever really know me

Once I was 20 years old, my story got told

Before the mornin’, sun when life was all lonely

 

I only seen my goal, I don’t believe in failure

Cuz’ I know the smallest voice can make it major

I got my boys with me

At least those in favor

And if we don’t meet, I hope I’ll see you later

Once I was 20 years old, my story got told

I was written by I was everything I saw before me

Once I was 20 years old

 

Soon we’ll be 30 years old, song have been sold

We’ve been travelled around the world and we’ll still be roaming

Soon we’ll be 30 years old

 

I’m still learning about life

My woman brought children for me

So I can sing them all my songs and I can tell them stories

Most of my boys with are me, some are still out seeking looking for glory

And some I had to leave behind my brothers I’m still savvy

Soon I will be 60 years old, my daddy got 61 remember life then your life become a battle one

I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once

I hope my children come and visit once or twice a month

Soon I will be 60 years old

Will I think that the world is cold?

Will I have a lot of children who can hold me?

Soon I will be 60 years old…

Will I think that the world is cold?

Will I have a lot of children who can hold me?

Once I was 7 years old, mama told me go make some friends so you won’t be lonely.

Once I was 7 years old.
