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

The 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 the whole community
Now Brenda never really knew her moms and her dad was a junkie

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 Brenda's 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 sexed and 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 heap

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 baby's in tha trash heap 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
Know what's next, there ain't nothin' left ta sell

So she sees sex as a way of leavin' hell
It's payin' the rent, so she really can't complain
Prostitute, found slang, and Brenda's her name, she's got a baby

(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
(Don't you know she's got a baby)
