MOHA LA SQUALE – Il le fallait (English lyrics)

Intro :
This one is for my mother, homie

1st verse :
I had to make a track for my mother, I won’t hide my love to her
This one is for my grand mother, I don’t know you but I know you
Your heritage is Algeria, your daughter fought for us
Just like you, she’s a fighter, she’s not dumb, she was all alone
Her life was sour, grand father, only if you knew
Elle, elle jacte dans des foyers, salement, we were trying to escape poverty
Alone with her baby, he probably didn’t even have a bottle
Homie, we’re making it out on our own and you’re complaining over nothing
Your gonna drown in your bottles, you dumb ass, I’m not saying any curse words
Because mom will listen to this track, mom is the one who use to go to the market
Dad, I remember you, I remember not even the bread you used to buy
Yeah things are shitty and you’re gutless, I never saw you acting proud
To be honest I don’t know you, I only know a few stories about you
And rest assured, you didn’t man up, you’re not a hero, you didn’t do your thing
Things were tight every month but mom was there to bring cereals
And seriously, I was happy, no euros but that’s not a problem
All year there was a strike and her two sons were suspicious
We wanted to build you more than a palace, we’re not like them, it’s not the same
We’re appreciating the present moment, I’m precising that it’s precious
I’m precise in my writings, I don’t like reciting bullshit
My mom is worth more than a thousand queens, mom doesn’t see herself in her mirror
Your sons are handsome, your daughters are beautiful, but forget it, you’re the prettiest

Chorus x2 :
I had to make a track for my mother, ready to go to bed in her palace
The only one who sent me money orders, even if it got her in debts
I’ll never make things even with you, you can’t count love, I took my first steps with my mother
My first hide and seek games, don’t even talk about my diapers, all the times I pooped all the way to Fleury

2nd verse :
I was twelve years old, she used to amaze me, always on time at the prison visits
Since morning, I would see her leaving with my older sister to see Bendero
It used be over nothing but she fought, she never gave in
Then they recognized me, Avenue Marceau, he understood that money was important
She could sens the danger coming, at 13 years old, I was selling drugs
I broke mom’s heart, her baby was straying away
Everyone can change, you gotta believe it, mom believed in it
And thanks to her, Moha fears no one, men don’t forget about the past
Move out the way we’re moving on to something else, I just finished the prison visit
You can talk now, the prison guards is gone, there’s no one around to listen
You can tell me everything on the phone now, that’s it, the days of troubles are over
And for dad I’m still pissed off, you’re just a bullshitter who turned his back on us
When your son was out selling drugs in the cold, I tried ducking from the cops
Because we knew how to make money, their dream was to put us in a cell
Mom is spending money on the lawyer, but that little asshole doesn’t want to admit
Good news, there’s no more overdraft, no more going backwards, no more police custody
Mom, your son is making an album, last year I was a delivery boy
I was constantly out delivering in the cold, the drugs was in my pants
All alone at war, I fought, since I was little, I liked to brawl
22 years old and getting the job done, mom, I’m stronger than dad
Mom, I’m stronger than dad
I’m stronger than dad, mom !

Chorus x4 :
I had to make a track for my mother, ready to go to bed in her palace
The only one who sent me money orders, even if it got her in debts
I’ll never make things even with you, you can’t count love, I took my first steps with my mother
My first hide and seek games, don’t even talk about my diapers, all the times I pooped all the way to Fleury

Outro :
My first diapers, first hide and seek games
First steps, they were with mom
This one is for you, mom
All this is for you
