lyrics

Born to be loved
Born to be free
Born to be everything
That my gifts will let me be
But I feel strange things
Too much for my mind
And I take the shame
And I go run and hide

Chorus
Cause I’m 13 and I workin’ these mean streets
I want love, I want affection
But I don’t know I’m lookin in the wrong direction
Said I’m 13, I’m 13
Said I’m just 13

I’m a tenderoni
I’m a girlwomanchild
I wan’t my mama
And I need my daddy’s smile
Who is my friend
Who is my enemy
Will you treat me right
Or take advantage of me

Chorus
Cause I’m 13 and I workin’ these mean streets
I want love, I want affection
But I don’t know I’m lookin in the wrong direction
Said I’m 13, I’m 13
Said I’m just 13 (repeat)

I’m searching, searching 4x

Help me be a winner
Cause I’m a beginner
I might be an offender
But I am not a sinner

Cause I’m 13
I’m 13
Said I’m 13, I’m 13
Said I’m just 13
I’m just 13
I’m 13
