Canon – Brother’s Keeper Lyrics

[Chorus]
Oh!
Am I my brother’s keeper? (Keeper)
Look out for my people (My people)
Gotta look out for my people, am I my brother’s keeper?
Gotta look out for my people, gotta look out for my people (My people)
Am I my brother’s keeper?

[Verse 1]
Lucifer longs for evil, so I’ve got to check on my people
Shout out to Weezy F, 'cuz she could be Mona Lisa (Yeah, yeah)
Oh, I bet He won’t respond to my message, I bet He wouldn’t even read it
And I replied, pshh, I ain’t like еverybody, I’m just here for my pеople (Woah)
'Cuz even the worst get beat up, I pray you make it to the sunrise (Oh, yeah)
I’ve been reading letter after letter, telling me that life is getting on the far side
So I welcome anybody, arms wide, I got love, hating will get you hog-tied (Woo!)
Pops tried, then the mom tried, yeah, I reached out, but their son died
Oh Lord, Lord, Lord, help me: they’re thinking 'cuz I gotta a platform (Woo!)
That I’m gonna be here just to act for them, I’m a keep it 100, exact for them (Yeah, woah)
Even on the phone, I had sat for them, even after the show I came back for them
Even Jesus did it, so do that for them, no superstar, no, act normal, yeah

[Chorus]
Am I my brother’s keeper? (Keeper)
Look out for my people (My people)
Gotta look out for my people, am I my brother’s keeper?
Gotta look out for my people, gotta look out for my people (My people)
Am I my brother’s keeper?
Am I my brother’s keeper? (Keeper)
Look out for my people (My people)
Gotta look out for my people, am I my brother’s keeper?

Gotta look out for my people, gotta look out for my people (My people)
Am I my brother’s keeper?
[Verse 2]
I just wanna trust someone gon' hold me down (Hold me down)
Are you gon' be here for me or let me down? (Let me down)
And if I don’t respond, will you still be around? (Be around)
If you knew I felt no freedom, would you keep me bound?
Yeah, I don’t mean no fuss, I don’t mean no fuss
But it’s blood on the street, boiling my blood (Yeah)
Could've been my friend, or maybe my brother, maybe my cuz (Cuz, yeah)
Don’t you shoot me, 'cuz you thinking I am just a thug
Lay me down, not on my street, but in my home (But in my home)
I just wanna go home, I just wanna go home (I just wanna go home)
I don’t wanna get shot up, so I pull out my phone (I pull out my phone)
And I ain’t asked for nothing, so just leave me alone
Now pray for ya homies, pray for ya homies (I'ma pray)
They're spraying on ya homies, spraying on ya homies
The days getting darker, I see rain coming
Is God coming? (Hmm)

[Chorus]
Am I my brother’s keeper? (Keeper)
Look out for my people (My people)
Gotta look out for my people, am I my brother’s keeper?
Gotta look out for my people, gotta look out for my people (My people)
Am I my brother’s keeper?
Am I my brother’s keeper? (Keeper)
Look out for my people (My people)
Gotta look out for my people, am I my brother’s keeper?
Gotta look out for my people, gotta look out for my people (My people)
Am I my brother’s keeper?
