Lyrics

I tell all my kids, go rake It Up(Rake it up) Break it down(break it down) we college bound (we college bound)

Them A's you rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

I said to rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

Them A's you rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

Go out and rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

I said all my kids, go rake it up (rake it up). Break it down(break it down) we college bound (we college bound)

Them A's you rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

I said to rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

Them A's you rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

Go out and rake it up!

Back on my grind, the summer over/I gotta get my head back straight like a solider

I'm trying to make them A's, like my daddy told you/so I do my homework, study hard like I'm supposed to

Get 5 for the A's and 4 for the b's/I ain't never made a C but that go for the 3.

Now I'm going to grade 3, working hard everyday/because my daddy say work first Dream then play (play)

tell all my kids, go rake It Up(Rake it up) Break it down(break it down) we college bound (we college bound)

Them A's you rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

I said to rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

Them A's you rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

Go out and rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

My daughter call me dad, the kids call me Coach/my fourth year teaching so I already know

We may be underpaid, but valued for sure/we gotta train these kids up in the wayyyyyy they should go

Our kids are a gift, our kids are a blessing/to whom much is given, know much is expecting

We got to teach this lessons, we got to hold firm/we got to know that even if he's wrong he can learn

We may discern what he know from his answers/but whose to say he might be the one to cure cancer

That's why, I love em, love em, love em/let them know that I'm there, they don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care

Do you care and love them like your own/because some of these kids don't get it from home

Do you care and love them like your own/because some of these kids don't get it from home

I tell all my kids, go rake It Up(Rake it up) Break it down(break it down) we college bound (we college bound)

Them A's you rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

I said to rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

Go out and rake it up(rake it up, rake it up)

I said it to rake it up (rake it up, rake it up)
