      Kirk Franklin - A whole nation Música y Letra

      Ladies and Gentlemen
      I wanna introduce to you right now
      Young Donovan... He's eleven (mmmmm)
      The problem we're facing right now
      Is we're losing our children (ooooooo)
      Father's we need you (mmmmmm)
      Can you feel me?
      
      [Chorus:]
      It takes a whole nation
      To help me raise this generation
      When you look out of your window
      Tell me what do you see
      If it's a world without a father
      Then you're looking at me
      It takes a whole nation
      To help me raise this generation
      My respect to the mother's that be holdin it down
      But it sure would be nice to have my daddy around.
      
      [Verse 1:]
      All I need is one mic (one mic)
      I know you can see
      I'm not a rapper
      But there's some dudes that are just like me
      Everytime you took a picture with you and your family
      It was only two people and it's supposed to be 3
      It's supposed to be me asking
      (Why's the sky blue when I grow up I wanna be like you)
      Yo daddy can you teach me how to
      (Tie my shoes can I go with you to work so I can see what you do?)
      Lemme see what you do
      So I can love my kids too
      But you didn't stick around was that too much to ask of you?
      Too much to get a blueprint(No)
      Too much to show your way (No)
      That's the reason why this building is not finished still today (We're lost boys)
      So you wanna believe that (My daddy's coming back he didn't forget about me)
      Only child after school
      We just sit there and wait (I know he's gonna come)
      Your dad is 78
      
      [Chorus:]
      It takes a whole nation (It takes a whole nation)
      To help me raise this generation
      When you look out of your window (Look out this evening)
      Tell me what do you see
      If it's a world without a father
      Then you're looking at me (Come on)
      It takes a whole nation (Nation)
      To help me raise this generation (uh uh)
      My respect to the mother's that be holdin it down
      But it'd sure be nice to have my daddy around. (Daddy around)
      
      [Verse 2:]
      Check this out
      They say raising kids is the parents responsibility (mmmmm)
      But there's a million of Y'all and only one of me (hey)
      What happened to the village as far as I can see
      It's been burned down by this modern day slavery
      
      [Donovan:]
      For 11 years I've been living here
      I've seen mamma cry more than 11 tears
      Watchin mamma see daddy while he slips away
      Does Jesus really hear kids when they pray?
      
      [Kirk:]
      She's working to jobs
      She can't do it alone
      She shouldn't have to she didn't get knocked up on her own
      [Both:] And I know that baby's mamma drama
      Brothas it's real
      But before you close the door
      Don't forget how it feels
      Remember
      
      [Donovan:]
      Daddy missed my game and I made a touchdown
      I won the talent show but you weren't around
      If a girl breaks my heart what do I do with this pain (and one more thing daddy)
      Can you tell me my name?
      
      [Chorus:]
      It takes a whole nation
      To help me raise this generation (I need my daddy)
      When you look out of your window
      Tell me what do you see
      If it's a world without a father
      Then you're looking at me (Yay)
      It takes a whole nation (It's a million of us)
      To help me raise this generation (Oh... uh... Oh Lord)
      My respect to the mother's that be holdin it down
      But it'd sure be nice to have my daddy around.
      (Everybody that didn't have a father in your life...
      I want you to stand up and sing this part right here) (Hey)
      Tell em!
      
      [Bridge:]
      Ain't nothing gonna break me down (Yes sir)
      Can't let nobody take me down
      Can't let nobody break me down
      Me down (Sing it)
      Say it with me now
      
      Ain't nothing gonna break me down
      Can't let nobody take me down
      Can't let nobody break me down... Me down (Take me down no)
      (Sing it!)
      
      [Bridge]
      
      Ain't nothing gonna break me down (Hey)
      Can't let nobody take me down (Nobody taught me)
      Can't let nobody break me down... Me down (Break me down)
      (I had to figure this thing out by myself)
      
      (Heaven can you hear me?)
      
      Ain't nothing gonna break me down
      Can't let nobody take me down (can't you here we're lonely?) (Come on)
      Can't let nobody break me down... Me down (I'll be their father... I'll be their man! Come on)
      (Yay)
      
      [Chorus:]
      (If you feel me say yeah!)
      It takes a whole nation
      (Ain't nothing gonna break me down)
      To help me raise this generation (If you feel me say yeah
      (Can't let nobody take me down)
      (I hear you people)
      When you look out of your window
      (Can't let nobody break me down... me down) (If you feel me say yeah)
      Tell me what do you see
      If it's a world without a father (Oh)
      Then you're looking at me
      It takes a whole nation (I know)
      (Please Lord) (You can't take my joy devil)
      (Ain't nothing gonna break me down)
      To help me raise this generation
      (Can't let nobody take me down) (Daddy could be there?) (Sing it boy!)
      My respect to the mother's that be holdin it down
      (Can't let nobody break me down... me down) (Daddy could be there?... oh yea)
      But it'd sure be nice to have my daddy around. (Oh)
      
      Young Donovan (Hey)
      To be continued (ooooo)
      Let's go (ohhh)
      Taking care of your kids is cool (mmmmm)
      But if you ain't seen em since Christmas
