Testo della canzone Letter To My Son (Akon), tratta dall'album Ain’t No Peace

Letter To My Son - Akon

Convict, convict, convict...

I had to do bad, so you can do better
I was locked in a pin when I wrote you this letter
But you was way too young, don't understand no evil and no better
It's time that I tell you who I am, so I can protect you

'Cause a bad role model it's something I can't afford to be (to you)
'Cause only me and God knows what I did just to eat

I steal for you, I deal for you
That's what I did for you
To get a meal for you
Nearly died for you
Did the time for you
I survived for you
To provide for you

All this for you
Did this for you
All that I do
I do for you

So you don't have to
So you don't have to
So you don't have to
So you don't have to

Made a couple trips home
Had a couple bricks on me
And always kept a stick on me
Can't let 'em make a victim of me

Risked my life for you
God and blue lights for you
Working overnight for you
So you're growing up to be just like me

A bad role model it's something I can't afford to be (to you)
Only me and God knows what I did just to eat

I steal for you, I deal for you
That's what I did for you
To get a meal for you
Nearly died for you
Did the time for you
I survived for you
To provide for you

All this for you
Did this for you
All that I do
I do for you

So you don't have to
So you don't have to
So you don't have to
So you don't have to

Did it so you don't have to
Did it all so that you never have to (oh, no, no, no, no)
Did it so you don't have to (don't do it)
Did it all so that you never have to (oh, no, no, no, no)
Did it so you don't have to (I did it)
Did it also that you never have to (oh, no, no, no, no)
Did it so you don't have to (don't do it)
Did it also that you never have to

I steal for you, I deal for you
That's what I did for you
To get a meal for you
Nearly died for you
Did the time for you
I survived for you
To provide for you

All this for you
Did this for you
All that I do
I do for you
So you don't have to
