"if they got me, got me, got me, i have to get them, get them, get them"- Madea

I can believe I’m leaving, can’t believe I have to fly
I hate that have to so I won’t say goodbye
Sad you are but you can handle this
Out of everyone you’re the most I’m going to miss
I took all the crowding while keeping it together
I stuck by you through all the hailing, and storming weather
Getting so close to the edge of the nest there is no getting caught
I got what you have been teaching me I got what you have taught
Don’t be so sad you’ve done a great job with me
I will always love but you’re going to have to push me
So let me go, I’m going to have to spread my wings
Into this world you’re going to have to fling,
This girl that you’ve spent the last 18 years teaching,
The young women that you already know will be leaving
You taught all the good and the bad the word seems to be
I’ll be ready for it all because of what you did for me
Now I don’t want to do this and I know you will be crying
You’ve been there through all of the excuses and the lying
I know I never told you much of this before
But there is no way I could ever match or even the score
So just let me say this with all my heart
I love you mom and we will never be far apart
Don’t worry about me leaving, you will always be in my heart.
