HOOK (full)

Ben most people would turn you away

I don't listen to a word they say

They don't see you as I do

I wish they would try to

I'm sure they'd think again

if they had a friend like Ben


VERSE 1

uh My name's Adair and I'm here to recruit you

What up Hip-Hop Can I spit some taboo

Hello young world can I change your outlook

When I was growing up I was forced to give a frown look

to people who were different than me,

and I just accepted it man but I was so naive

see I was scholarship-ed to a private school

and in the hood I was with my vatos acting a fool

so either way being gay was wrong

it was against the hood laws or the laws of God

so... I didn't see them -they probably were scared straight

but I made a friend I never expected to make....

now, I can see all the hate reaction on your face

this subjects not the type that hip-hop embrace

but its long overdue... where you at Wayne

I said its long overdue where you at Ye? 

I mean...


HOOK (half) 

they don't see you as I do

I wish they would try to

I'm sure they'd think again

if they had a friend like Ben


VERSE 2 

Ben you're my friend in case you unaware

Adair Lion does if nobody else care

and I've never been the type to harp on what others think of me

so there's no wonder why I call out all this bigotry

Being Christian its hard to say this...

but the Bible was wrong this time...

Its in every species and every family I've met

so I don't see why to the world its a crime

you see logistically

and statistically

not every dancer dude is gay

not every football players straight

and thats crazy huh, but thats fact yo!

and thats the same anywhere, even rap yo!

oh you don't see that...

you don't believe that...

I guess him over there he chose to be Black...

and her Asian...

and them White...

and those God awful gays chose to live that life, huh?!


HOOK (half) 

they don't see you as I do

I wish they would try to

I'm sure they'd think again

if they had a friend like Ben


VERSE 3

Ben I dont know if my friends will back me up on this

they might turn their backs and say that I'm a bitch

and I know if you come out you'll get the same shit

but we dont need that kind of peeps in our relationship

"gay is okay" the number one thing a rapper shouldn't say...

I said it anyway and I made history...

(and) to all the little dudes learning to mack

the hottest chicks got a gay in their clique, remember that

Ben this songs for you while your growing up

'cause I don't wanna see you break and say you've had enough

It doesn't just get better, it gets awesome homie

what I mean is I just wanna see you blossom homie

its just they never really miss you 'til you (are) dead or your gone

so on that note, Im leaving after this song

you ain't gotta feel any way about Adair for long

but at least let Michael tell you why I'm this way...hold on

OUTRO

Coincidentally, Ben is the name of someone I've never met...my dad.

So why would I ever judge someone who is trying to be two of what I never had?
