I'VE MADE SOME MONEY NOW, BUTI DON'T OWE MY DADDY NOTHIN'.

MY DADDY'S GOT HIS HAND OUT.

"HEY, I STUCK WITH YOU."THAT'S WHAT HE SAID.

"YEAH, 'CAUSE YOU DIDN'T WANT TOPAY THEM CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS.

"YOU STUCK WITH ME,BUT YOU WASN'T A PERFECT DAD.

"WELL, IF YOU DON'T TRY,YOU'LL NEVER LEARN."

"WELL, TAKE ME TO A SWIMMINGPOOL WITH THE REST OF THE KIDS.

I AIN'T GETTING OUT THIS BOATWITHOUT A LIFE JACKET ON."

MY DADDY SAID,

"I'LL TAKE YOUBACK TO THE HOUSE."

I SAID, "WELL, LET'S RIDE."

SO I'M SITTING UP IN THE CAR

WITH A SEAT BELT ON,A LIFE JACKET,

AND A FOOTBALL HELMET.

"WHEN YOU GET MEBACK TO MY MAMA,

I'LL TAKE IT OFF."

MY MAMA, THAT'S WHO I HELP;THAT'S WHO RAISED ME.

THAT'S WHO REALLY RAISES YOU.

YOUR DAD'S NOT AROUND THAT MUCH.

WHEN I MADE SOME MONEY,

I WENT BACKAND TOOK CARE OF MY MAMA.

I TRIED TO BUY HER SOME STUFF.

TRIED TO GET HER A HOUSE,GET HER TO MOVE.

SHE'S SENTIMENTALLY ATTACHEDTO THE HOUSE

WHERE WE GREW UP...40 YEARS AGO.

MY MAMA IS NOT GONNA MOVE,

BUT SHE'LL SURE LET ME

REMODEL THE HELLOUT OF THAT PIECE OF [bleep].

I PUT UP $92,000 WORTH OFPANELING; THAT'S ALL SHE'LL DO.

PANELED THE LIVING ROOM,THE DINING ROOM,

THE KITCHEN, THE FLOORS,AND ALL THE BATHROOMS.

PANELED THE GARAGE.

SHE RAN THE CONTRACTORS OFFBEFORE THEY FINISHED.

NOW THERE AIN'T NO STEPS

TO GET FROM THE HOUSEDOWN INTO THE GARAGE.

YOU GOT TO JUMPOUT OF THE HOUSE.

I SAID, "MAMA,I'M PAYING FOR IT."

I STILL GIVE HER MONEY.

SHE DOESN'T BELIEVETHE MONEY I GAVE HER INITIALLY

IS IN THE BANK.

SHE'S NEVER SEENTHAT MANY ZEROES BEFORE.

SHE WAS GOING TO GETHER HAIR DONE THE OTHER DAY.

I GAVE HER $100.

I KNEW IT COULDN'TBE MORE THAN THAT.

SHE ONLY HADTHREE STRANDS OF HAIR,

JUST SOME BANGS IN THE FRONT.

THAT'S $33 A STRAND.

I KNOW IT CAN'T BEMORE THAN THAT, MAMA.

AND WHEN SHE CAME BACK,

I WANTED TO WHIP EVERYBODY'S ASSAT THE BEAUTY SHOP,

BECAUSE SHE CAME BACKWITH A WEAVE.

"74 YEARS OLD.YOU DON'T NEED NO WEAVE, MAMA.

"AND IT DOESN'T MATCH THE RESTOF THE HAIR ON YOUR FACE.

"HOW CAN YOU HAVELITTLE RED, NAPPY EYEBROWS,

IF SHE'D RAISE HER HAND UPOVER HER EAR,

SHE'D LOSE HER BALANCE.

OH, THEY WERE MAD AT ME

TILL SHE WENT TO SLEEPONE NIGHT

AND THE GLUE HEATED UPIN THE WEAVE.

THEY'D GLUED ITTO MY MAMA'S SCALP,

'CAUSE SHE DIDN'T HAVE NOTHIN'FOR THEM TO WEAVE IT ONTO.

AND IT CAME UNATTACHED,

AND IT WRAPPEDAROUND MY MAMA'S NECK

AND LIKE TO CHOKED HER TO DEATH.

MY MAMA USED TO BEGOOD-LOOKING,

BUT YOU GOT TOKIND OF WATCH HER NOW.
