Tupac - 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 ya how it affects the whole community

Now Brenda really never knew her moms, and her dad was a junky, went in death to his arms.

It’s sad cause I bet Brenda doesn’t even know, just cause you’re in the ghetto doesn’t mean ya 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 lets 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 gettin bigger, but no one seems to notice any change in her figure.

She’s 12 years old and she’s having a baby. In love with the molester, who’s sexing her crazy.

And yet she thinks that he’ll be with her forever, and dreams of a world with the two of them are together.


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 the trash heep.

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 heep bawling. Momma can’t help her, but it hurts to hear her calling.

Brenda wants to run away.

Momma say, you makin’ 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
