N*E*R*D – Provider

Woke up I had the same clothes on I had on last night 
Damn 
I must have passed out 
And cash is just like the clothes I worn yesterday 
We are broke 
Damn 
I gotta get my ass out 
I went to see what my friend was talking about 
Drugs 
He told me cocaine would get you clout 
My momma said he’s trouble and schools my route 
But I went to high school and got kicked out 
So I’m driving this truck down the 95 
I pray to God I make it home alive 
I don’t get pulled over by the man 
I just want to make it home to hold your hand 

[Chorus]

Goodbye beloved one 
Do you know what I am 
If you don’t see my face no more 
I’m a provider girl, gotta face the streets tonight 

Goodbye beloved one 
Do you know what I am 
You don’t see my face no more 
I’m a rider, girl gotta face the streets tonight 
You say you don’t want me to go but I have to 
Please don’t weep 
I love you 

I refuse to be a bum 
Especially coming where I’m from 
I’m a provider girl 
And I love you 

So it’s just like I said before 
Heading down 95 
Dodging Johnny law 
I don’t need a ticket though I never got one 
If he pulls me over 
He can feel my shotgun 
I think about life pull down my hat 
It’s just like this road I don’t know where I’m at 
I don’t want to be another cocaine story 
Will I find my sanity 
Where I find my glory 
Come on 

[Repeat Chorus]

Someday, Someday, this will be over 
We’ll raise a family 
I’ll get a job and I’ll be a voter 
And if I die 
It will change you 
Change you 
I watch over a family 
But only as an angel 

So don’t tell me you don’t know what you see 
When you’re looking at a motherfucker just like me 
I’m a provider girl 
I said don’t tell me you don’t know what you see 
When you’re looking at a motherfucker just like me 
I’m a rider girl 

[Repeat Chorus]

I love you girl 
I’m doing this for us 
I don’t know any better 
What am I supposed to do 
Nothing I love you
