I know it's past visiting hours
The doctor don't wanna take procedures
It'll send her body into a seizure
Hey chick, I'm at a loss for words
Tell her everything gon' be fine, but I be lyin'
I'm arguin like what kind of doctor can we fly in
If Magic Johnson got a cure for AIDS
You telling me if my grandma's in the NBA
Was just a secretary, worked for the church for 35 years
My grandfather tryin to pull it together, he's strong
I asked the nurse "Did you do the research?"
*****, is you smokin reefer?

And I, can't wait for a sunny day (seeing it through your eyes)

You can feel my heartbeat, beat, beat
But right now she asleep, sleep, sleep
Hey chick, what these doctors know anyway?
Cousin Kim took off of work
So many Aunties we could have an Auntie Team
When they said that she made it you see they eyes gleam
To get there, we run, we fly, we drive
And so instead of sendin flowers, we the roses
I, smile, when roses come to see me
Can't wait for the clouds to break
It brings the sunshine, oh
I, smile, when roses come to see me
Can't wait for the clouds to break
I, smile, when Rosey come to see me
Oh Rosey brings the sunshine (say)
Can't wait, I can't wait, no
Can't wait, I, can't wait
Momma can't wait, for the clouds to break
Oh oh oh oh no no, say
Said I can't wait, uh uh
