Lyrics of Brendas Got a Baby

Brenda's got a Baby
               Brenda's got a Baby

               I hear Brenda's got a baby
               Well, Brenda's barely got a brain
               A damn shame
               Tha girl can hardly spell her name
               (That's not her problem, that's up ta Brenda's family)
               Well let me show ya how it affects tha whole community
               Now Brenda never really knew her moms and her dad was a junky
               Went in debt to his arms, it's sad
               Cause I bet Brenda doesn't even know
               Just cause your in tha ghetto doesn't mean ya can't grow
               But oh, that's a thought, my own revelation
               Do whatever it takes ta resist tha temptation
               Brenda got herself a boyfriend
               Her boyfriend was her cousin, now lets watch tha joy end
               She tried to hide her pregnancy, from her family
               Who didn't really care to see, or give a damn if she
               Went out and had a church of kids
               As long as when tha check came they got first dibs
               Now Brendas belly is gettin bigger
               But no one seems ta notice any change in her figure
               She's 12 years old and she's having a baby
               In love with tha molester, who's sexing her crazy
               And yet she thinks that he'll be with her forever
               And dreams of a world with tha two of them are together, whatever
               He left her and she had tha baby solo, she had it on tha bathroom floor
               And didn't know so, she didn't know, what ta throw away and what ta keep
               She wrapped tha baby up and threw him in tha trash heep
               I guess she thought she'd get away
               Wouldn't hear tha cries
               She didn't realize
               How much tha tha little baby had her eyes
               Now tha babys in tha trash heep balling
               Momma can't help her, but it hurts ta hear her calling
               Brenda wants ta run away
               Momma say, you makin' me lose pay, tha social workers here everyday
               Now Brenda's gotta make her own way
               Can't go to her family, they won't let her stay
               No money no babysitter, she couldn't keep a job
               She tried ta sell crack, but end up getting robbed
               So now what's next, there ain't nothin left ta sell
               So she sees sex as a way of leavin hell
               It's payin tha rent, so she really can't complain
               Prostitute, fair slang, and Brenda's her name, she's got a baby

               Brenda's got a Baby
               Brenda's got a Baby

               I hear Brenda's got a baby
               Well, Brenda's barely got a brain
               A damn shame
               Tha girl can hardly spell her name
               (That's not her problem, that's up ta Brenda's family)
               Well let me show ya how it affects tha whole community
               Now Brenda never really knew her moms and her dad was a junky
               Went in debt to his arms, it's sad
               Cause I bet Brenda doesn't even know
               Just cause your in tha ghetto doesn't mean ya can't grow
               But oh, that's a thought, my own revelation
               Do whatever it takes ta resist tha temptation
               Brenda got herself a boyfriend
               Her boyfriend was her cousin, now lets watch tha joy end
               She tried to hide her pregnancy, from her family
               Who didn't really care to see, or give a damn if she
               Went out and had a church of kids
               As long as when tha check came they got first dibs
               Now Brendas belly is gettin bigger
               But no one seems ta notice any change in her figure
               She's 12 years old and she's having a baby
               In love w

'Brenda's Got a Baby' is the solo debut single by Tupac Shakur, and tenth track from his debut album, '2Pacalypse Now'. The song, which features R&B singer Dave Hollister, is about a fictional twelve-year-old girl named Brenda who lives in a ghetto, has a baby, and is incapable of supporting it. The song explores the issue of teen pregnancy and its effect on the young mothers and their families. Like many of Shakur's songs, 'Brenda's Got a Baby' draws from the plight of the impoverished. Using Brenda to represent young mothers in general, Shakur criticises the low level of support from the baby's father, the government, and society in general. Shakur wrote the song when he read a newspaper article about a twelve-year-old girl who got pregnant from her cousin and, because she did not want her parents to know about the baby, threw it in a trash can.
