Lyrics

Please let me testify

She walked in the court, her knees buckled
Saying for a man to survive he need hustle
Seen and been through struggle her whole life
Made a transition from being his ho to his wife
Stifling, the night upend the ATF bust in
Her daddy was a hustla so she love them
Looked at the jury, how can they judge him, she screamed

Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
Please let me testify

Fear in her chest, her face in tears
Had her man's back, he was facing years
In her name, though the place was his
They tryna take everything except the kids
But years she been through scuffle and fights
While he trying to hustle that white
Up all night wondering if he's alive
Seeing him tried, she bubbled inside and screamed

Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
Please let me testify

The judge yelled for order
Court reporter makin her words shorter
His lawyer sat next to him
She could see how the trial was affecting him
It hurt for her eyes to connect with him
Using her lies for protecting him
They arrested him for murder, and gun possession
As they read back her confession, she screamed

Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
Please let me testify

The court awaited as the foreman got the verdict from the bailiff
Emotional outbursts, tears and smeared makeup
He stated, he was guilty on all charges
She's shaking, looking like she took it the hardest
A spin artist, she brought her face up laughing
That's when the prosecutor realised what happened
All that speaking her mind, testifying and crying
When this bitch did the crime, the queenpin

Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away

Please let me testify
You accuse me of a, you accuse me of a, you accu-
Please let me testify
You accuse me of a, you accuse me of a, you accu-

Please let me testify
You accuse me of a, you accuse me of a, you accu-
Please let me testify
You accuse me of a, you accuse me of a
Pl-pl-
