MOHA LA SQUALE – Pourquoi (English lyrics)

Intro :
It comes a time in life when a man can say to himself “That’s it, I can afford to be ill now, someone will help me stand”

Chorus (x2) :
Why can’t it be us homie, why can’t that be us ?
Me and my mother, a villa near the ocean
Why can’t that be us homie, why can’t that be us ?
A blunt and a bitch, I said a blunt and a bitch
Why can’t that be us homie, why can’t that be us ?
Me and my mother, a villa near the ocean
Why can’t that be us homie ?

Verse :
Why can’t that be us sipping on our drinks on the sea coast ?
Give me a blunt and a bitch and I’ll take off from earth
Nah I’m not kidding, back then in the struggle, things weren’t that way
We wanted to buy clothes even if it meant getting ourselves beat up
When I think back on my future, homie I almost didn’t make it out alive
My faith was sealed ever since daddy left us
The cops, prison, the dope spot and the brawls
I hung out late at night, I wasn’t a coward
It’s not a coincidence if my mother was scared
She rarely smiled and I had to run away from the cops
I didn’t want for her to cry, I’m a man, she’s not worried
I remember at 6 AM, I used to hide behind her back
Can you hear me ? That’s my therapy
I felt so good that I didn’t need to panic anymore
She always gives it her all, even when her son is behind bars
She’s serious, she drove you crazy, she hugged you in her arms
You left the house, but she’s not turning her back n you now that you’re locked up
She’s the only one that is’t turning her back on you
The only who send money orders to you in prison
The one who still washes your clothes
She gave you your first band aid
Her love isn’t a joke, I can stab you open for her
She carried you for nine months, in her arms she used to rock me
I’ll always be her baby, she’ll always be there if things go wrong
She would give up a kidney for me, I’m talking to you about my queen
I hurt her, Mama I love you
I’m sorry, I was unconscious
The streets where pulling me but you never let go
I was a coward for running out the house
The cops, the weed, the twelve gauge, the shotgun
Shot get fired, they’re shooting get a T-Max, let’s get out of here
And it goes all over again, we’re off to another story
The lawyers, the worries, and you make me laugh
You’re rapping, you’re acting tough, we know who you are
I sold drugs in les Marais and I don’t see nothing funny about it
I paranoid and honest, but it’s not a (??)
I’m making you a man, my story is true
While you were studying, I was getting arrested in the projects
And while you were acting stupid, Samson was getting busted at years old
Mentally strong as concrete, we’re not afraid of turning around in circles
A huge pile of euro bills, I said a huge pile of euro bills
We want a huge pile of euro bills, I said a huge pile of euro bills

Chorus (x2) :
Why can’t it be us homie, why can’t that be us ?
Me and my mother, a villa near the ocean
Why can’t that be us homie, why can’t that be us ?
A blunt and a bitch, I said a blunt and a bitch
Why can’t that be us homie, why can’t that be us ?
Me and my mother, a villa near the ocean
Why can’t that be us homie ?
