      Jay-Z - Where Have You Been Música y Letra

      [beanie sigel]
      Damn how am i gonna say this shit?
      Hey... hey dad, yeah it's your boy
      Remember me? i wanna talk to you scrap
      
      I remember being kicked out the house
      'cause i looked just like you
      Said i'd be nothing but a crook
      Just like you
      The niggaz in the hood was shook
      Where the just like you
      'cause all they said was little whitey look
      I'm just like you
      But dog i can't see it at all, shit
      We never kicked it at all
      We never pitched or kicked at a ball
      Dog, you never taught me shit
      How to fight, ride a bike, fix a flat
      None of that sorts of shit
      Nigga you was an abusive pops
      Fuck you left me out to dry, stuck
      Gotta teach news to box
      Gotta teach news to bop
      And that aint the half of it man
      I gotta teach news to block
      It's about time we have a father to son (nigga sit down)
      Sit down let me tell you 'bout your fatherless sons
      How they grew to be men and father they sons
      Father they daughters
      Nigga, you left a fatherless daughter
      I never follow your orders
      Nigga you make me sick
      Pussy you could....ooh
      How you gonna leave these memories in the back of my mind
      I can see it clear as day you smackin my mom
      I 'member that day you showed me that gat, that 9
      Put it in my palm when i was young
      And said that would be mine, you turned me out
      The reason why i hit the block
      Reason why i tried to hit them cops
      Reason why i started hittin shots
      Reason why i started gettin licked
      And drinkin syrup and skippin court
      Ginger bread man never think of gettin caught
      Look at your hand man damn you fought
      Nigga you left my mom
      Left us with no good-bye's
      You left us out to dry
      You left us with no letters, notes, (nothing!) no replies
      No digits numbers was unlisted
      You left us with some of my loneliest night
      Nigga some of my hungriest nights
      Shit, one of the reasons for years (shit embarrasin)
      Damn we used to think money was white
      Yeah you gave us life like, fruit from a plant
      We aint eat right from them foods from them stamps
      And to think you was my pop,
      Man i gotta stop shit
      
      [chorus]
      Female: daddy, where have you been?
      Beanie: and when you come home, you got us here all alone
      Female: mommy, where daddy went?
      Beanie: you always stick up for him
      Always said you'd make up for him
      Female: mommy, what happened then?
      Beanie: what was you cheatin on him?
      Why he's always beatin' on you?
      Female: daddy, where have you been?
      Beanie: nigga, you gonna hear me out
      
      [jay-z]
      I wanted to walk just like him (remember?)
      Wanted to talk just like him (word)
      Often momma said i look too much
      And i thought just like him (it could happen)
      Wanted to drink miller nips
      And smoke newports just like you
      But you left me, now i'm goin to court just like you
      I would say "my daddy loves me and he'll never go
      Away"
      Bullshit, do you even remember december's my birthday?
      Do you even remember the tender boy
      You turned into a cold young man
      With one goal and one plan
      Get mommy out of some jam, she was always in one
      Always short with the income
      Always late with the rent
      You said that you was comin through
      I would stay in the hallway (waitin)
      Always playin the bench (waitin)
      And that day came and went
      Fuck you! very much you showed me the worst kind of pain
      But i'm stronger and trust me i will never hurt again
      Will never ask mommy "why daddy don't love me?
      Why is we so poor?, why is life so ugly?
      Mommy why is your eyes puffy?"
      Please don't cry everything'll be alright
      I know it's dark now, but we gon' see the light
      It's us against the world
      We don't need him, right? (right)
      Mommy drivin 6's now (yeah), i got riches now (yeah)
      I bought i nice home for both of my sisters now
      We doin real good
      We don't miss you now
      See how life twists around, fucker?
      
      Chorus
