Brenda's got a baby

I hear Brenda's got a baby
But Brenda's barely got a brain
A damn shame, the girl can hardly spell her name

That's not our problem, that's up to Brenda's family
Well let me show you how it affects our whole community

Now Brenda never really knew her moms
And her dad was a junkie putting death into his arms
It's sad, cause I bet Brenda doesn't even know
Just cause you're in the ghetto doesn't mean you can't grow

But oh, that's a thought, my own revelation
Do whatever it takes to resist the temptation

Brenda got herself a boyfriend
Her boyfriend was her cousin, now let's watch the 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 the check came they got first dibs

Now Brenda's belly is getting bigger
But no one seems to notice any change in her figure

She's twelve years old and she's having a baby
In love with a molester, who's sexing her crazy
And yet and she thinks that he'll be with her forever
And dreams of a world where the two of them are together
, whatever
He left her and she had the baby solo
She had it on the bathroom floor and didn't know so
She didn't know, what to throw away and what to keep
She wrapped the baby up and threw him in a trash heap
I guess she thought she'd get away, wouldn't hear the cries
She didn't realize how much the little baby had her eyes
Now the baby's in the trash heap bawling
Momma can't help her, but it hurts to hear her calling

Brenda wants to run away
Momma say, you making me lose pay
The 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 to sell crack but end up getting robbed

So now what's next, there ain't nothing left to sell
So she sees sex as a way of leaving hell
It's paying the rent, so she really can't complain

Prostitute, found slain and Brenda's her name, she's got a baby
