'That Stuff' Genre: Dramatic

She Had Once Been A Fine Dame . . .
Until She Began To Lose Her Way.

That Stuff? It Took Away Her Beauty.
That Stuff? It Took Away Her Dignity.
That Stuff? It Took Away Her Ability.
That Stuff? It Took Away Her Stability.

She Became A Crackhead.
Y'all Understand What I Said?
She Became A Crackhead.
And Soon, She Gon' Be Dead.

'Cause That Stuff? It's Gon' Kill Her.
It's Sho Gon' Kill Her.
The Lord Rebuke Her Dealer!
That Stuff Is Gon' Kill Her!

She's Breakin' My Heart.
She's Breakin' My Heart.
That Monkey On Her Back?
It's Tearin' Us Apart.

Dear Mama? Dear Mama?
You're Breakin' My Heart.
That Monkey On Your Back Is
Tearin' Us Apart.

My Lord? Don't You See?
My Lord? Intervene!
Don't Let That Disease
Take My Mama From Me.
