lyrics

(Intro)

Yeah, my two moms

(Verse 1)

Gloria Jean Sams, born June 29th
Smile of heaven, mother of seven, and full of life
Daryl Sams is her first born, yo that’s me
The only one of her seeds to see her happy
In the midst of the pain and heartache
I wish we could’ve lived where everything was all straight
A lot of memories were great
Even though the tough ones still haunt me at night
Caught in my sight
But let the good times roll, yo I was eight years old
when we raced in the street, no shoes, all feet
Fifty yard dash, aw man you was fast
I’m glad I was broke and didn’t bet no cash
Two years before, we’re at the seashore
Best times I ever had
In the midst of horseshoe crabs and jellyfish
Everything outside was irrelevant to mother and son

(Chorus: Chris Whitaker)

Wish I could see through
See deep into you
And know what you’re thinking now

(Repeat)

(Verse 2)

Deborah Sams Harmon, born on January 26
Same day as mine, boy life is so slick
Genius even
My Aunt Debbie used to visit on the weekend
And noticed my life was so hard
At age ten she took me in to legally guard
Even though she had a son and worked two jobs
But she gave her nephew a chance to advance
And for the first time I measured my wing span
Then I started to fly
One, two, third eye
And recognized I was a unique guy
Soaring through the clouds
Played it smart with my style
Auntie so proud
Mommy and Child is how she made me feel
But even kept it more real
By making sure I would know my momma Gloria still
I’m so glad you both opened your arms
Double good luck charms, I love my two moms

(Chorus x 2)

(Bridge)

I got this picture
It was taken at my college graduation
It was me in the middle
My mother on my right side
And my Aunt Debbie on the left side
That was one of the most happiest days of my life
Just knowing what we’ve all been through
So this song right here
Is a bouquet of roses for both of y’all
I love you

(Chorus x 8)

(End)
