“I Can Do Bad …

“I Can Do Bad All By Myself”

[Verse 1]
Somebody told me once that pain is a game we all gotta play.
Then why am I in overtime and sudden death every other day.
I know that for the good of life there’s a price we all gotta pay
But I’ll pay till I’m poor and I still don’t know what it is to have a good day.
Yeah
Since everybody knows what it is that I need to do.
Well do me a favor, let me worry bout me and you worry bout you.

[Chorus]
I don’t need no one to put me down,
I’m on the ground, can’t get no lower.
And I don’t need no one to hang around an make me frown just makes me look older.
And I don’t need no one to black my eye and tell me lies
Don’t wanna cry over nobody else
No no no no I can do bad all by myself

[Verse 2]
Somebody told me once that running from the rain don’t make no sense.
I had my own dark cloud for awhile now, it goes where ever I’m going.
Yeah
Your telling me the grass just might be greener on he other side.
But I don’t wanna take a chance on dirt when I got grass even tho the grass has died.
Oh since everybody knows what it is that I need to do,
Well do me a favor, let me worry bout me and you worry bout you

[Bridge]
Some feel real bad for me
I didn’t ask you for your sympathy
No I know God is watching over me
So I guess that the good I was suppose to be
Ohh yes

[Chorus]

I don’t need no one to put me down,
I’m on the ground, can’t get no lower.
And I don’t need no one to hang around an make me frown just makes me look older.
And I don’t need no one to black my eye and tell me lies
Don’t wanna cry over nobody else
No no no no I can do bad all by myself

In the movie “I Can Do Bad All By Myself”, the movie pick for Ladies Night Out on the 3rd Friday,

Sandino asked April why she sleeps her life away; why does she hide her funny side; and why is she with Randy (married man)?

April replies “he helps me out – he pays the bills”.  That was her definition of love.

But Sandino said love is having someone there in the morning when you wake up among other things.  Said, “We’re all looking for love in some way or another”. 

 So let me ask you about your definition of love: “Is your way empowering you or rejecting you”?  Are you rejecting the ‘you’ you are supposed to be by holding on to all the pain of the past – trying to do it all by yourself?  Join us because you are not alone. 

Already know you can’t hold a good woman down.  You went to the edge of the ledge, but could not jump.  You held on and made it through: well, come help a sista out!

 Join us Friday 4/20/12 at 7 p.m. at Bethany Baptist Church, Lindenwold, NJ and discuss how you learned you are not alone.
