      Amel Larrieux - Giving Something Up Música y Letra

      '76 when a man told his wife baby doll, sorry I can't stay
      left with 5 kids she was forced to become superwoman
      and go earn some pay
      a college educated girl
      washing dishes in a man's world
      now what good is a degree
      when you got mouths to feed
      
      she is that girl maybe you know, maybe you've been,
      maybe you are today
      insert your year where the year is if to this story you can relate
      
      [chorus]
      givin' somethin' up
      we always givin' something up
      we are givin' something up
      we always givin something up
      (repeat)
      
      '97 a mother has no choice but to go find work
      and leave her kids alone
      far from heaven so she's gone 5 days out the week
      to bring a piece home
      her man is off somewhere up some dress
      bringin' her back some other woman's sickness
      her baby girl is cryin', mama please,
      when you're gone the neighbor's chasing me
      
      around the world from Pakistan down to Soweto back to New York City
      insert your year where the year is if to this story you can relate
      
      [chorus]
      
      givin', tryin', self-relying
      feedin', teachin', always reachin'
      dreamin', losin', being abused and
      dyin', cryin', sacrificin'
      hurtin', being told we're worthless
      birthin', buried alive in the earth and
      hopin', mendin' spirits broken
      smilin' and somehow survivin'
