Allday – Single Mother Song lyrics

[Chorus: Momo]

All the days I was tripping and falling

All the slopes I was trickling down

All the days I was looking for something

I just thank God you were around

I just thank God you were around

I just thank God you were around

[Verse 1: Allday]

Got to dedicate it to my mum, Lucy

She is cool as a cucumber, straight as Judge Judy

My dad is grand, no diss to him either

But he left when I was eight, I guess he didn’t need her

Then our nuclear fam was Hiroshima

I was young and bitter, I’d give her the middle finger

Like "Fuck you", "I hate you", "Why can’t you get me this?"

She said, "I would if I could, Tom, we’re penniless"

And she was there trying to turn around my negatives

Through all my broken hearts and my many tiffs

Had a full-time job and she raised us up

And we were all bad boys like Ma$e and Puff

[Bridge: Allday]

Couldn’t have everything but she gave us love

Everything was tough, now I can’t say thanks enough

‘Cause she gave up her life to cater mine

So I want to prove it’s not a waste of time

[Chorus: Momo]

All the days I was tripping and falling

All the slops I was trickling down

All the days I was looking for something

I just thank God you were around

I just thank God you were around

I just thank God you were around

[Verse 2: Allday]

My mum told me that in this life, somebody wins

And if you work hard you can be who that somebody is

My mum told me to go my own direction

So when I’d get suspended, she’d just pay it no attention

Guess she had more faith than even I did

That I would do right because she told me what right is

Even when we didn’t have money to buy shit

She’d spend her last dollar just so I could wear the fly shit

And I would sneak out to do graffiti on a weekday

She’d text me and say, "Wear your mask and be safe"

She’d even pick me up when the police came

So, I’m sorry Mum for all the worry that I create

With two parents, things might have been different

Maybe more money, might have had more discipline

I wouldn’t change a thing though and neither would she

Love to my mum for going singularly

[Chorus: Momo]

All the days I was tripping and falling

All the slops I was trickling down

All the days I was looking for something

I just thank God you were around

I just thank God you were around

I just thank God you were around

[Outro: Allday]
