Essay content:

About pain and heartache, ain't nothing you can tell her The case worker says that she should find a job But does this worker know what kind of jobs that there are? Degrading things like cleaning up people's vomit For a little bit of dough, and plus your brain gets nothing from it I'm smarter than that this girl thinks to herself I'm worth more than that, she thinks to herself She pours a drink for herself while she stares out the window This guy says he got work for her, maybe she should go to him yo The money's good, and plus he'll dress her up nice She left her baby's daddy cuz he beat her up twice She don't really like sex But she hates welfare checks And where there's money, that's where she thinks there's respect And what's this girl's purpose? Will she self-destruct? When this sisters about to go down, who's there to help her up? (Les Nubians singing Chorus) [Guru] These distraught thoughts of a young man in a rooming house This messed up life, this poverty, he could do without But what options does he have when all hope is gone? A brother gotta eat, plus all the Henny and all the smoke is gone All it takes is one quick stick Gotta fill his belly now, which vic should he pick? He does his dirt all by his lonely, forget his homies He doesn't fell like splitting any loot, them suckas be acting phony So much potential but all gone to waste Now he lurks in night, with a loaded gun on his waist Too late for this lost soul, his life's in a chokehold Mentality is weak, and doing crime is all he knows Never caring who he hurts, as long as he's taking money Forget an education, and legal ways of making money And what's this kid's purpose? Will he self-destruct? When a brother's about to go down, who's there to help him up? (Les Nubians singing Chorus) [Guru] Who's there for my people on the streets? (Who's there? Who's there?) Who's there for my people who got nothing to eat? (Who's there? Who's there?) They build more prisons, and close down schools Who's there to teach the children the golden rules?(Who's there? Who's there?) Who's there for my people in the streets?(Who's there? Who's there?) Who's there for my people who got nothing to eat?(Who's there? Who's there?) They break our family, neglect the elderly Who's there to bring a cure? Where's the remedy?(Who's there? Who's there?) (Les Nubians signing)
