Alicia Keys Blended Family (What You Do For Love) Lyrics

[Alicia Keys:]

Hey, I might not really be your mother

But that don’t mean that I don’t really love ya

And even though I married your father

That’s not the only reason I’m here for ya

I think you’re beautiful

I think you’re perfect

I know how hard it gets

But I swear it’s worth it, worth it

‘Cause what you do, what you do, what you do, what you do for love

There ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothing I won’t do for us

It may not be easy, this blended family, but, baby,

‘Cause what you do, what you do, what you do, what you do for love, love

I know it started with a little drama

I hate you had to read it in the paper

But everything’s alright with me and your mama

Baby, everybody here—you know—adores ya

And I think it’s beautiful

I think it’s perfect

I know how hard it gets

But I swear it’s worth it, worth it

‘Cause what you do, what you do, what you do, what you do for love

There ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothing I won’t do for us

It may not be easy, this blended family, but, baby,

‘Cause what you do, what you do, what you do, what you do for love, love

[A$AP Rocky & Alicia Keys:]

For love, for love

Are you this real, my true love?

‘Cause you’re my baby, rejoice daily

I believe love could bring us closer than blood

[A$AP Rocky:]

I remember having four step-moms at nine

Loved Christmas time and birthday was fly

Ate at my sister’s just for dinner ’cause the cookin’ was bomb

Her mother’s supper made me love her like she took me to prom, uh

And shoutout to my sisters on welfare

Flacko care, if nobody else care

And shoutout to the step-sisters and the step-brothers

And god-sisters, who eventually slept with us

[A$AP Rocky & Alicia Keys:]

Remain loyal, but you did it right, alright

I’m here for you

Everything is alright, alright

[Alicia Keys:]

‘Cause what you do, what you do, what you do, what you do for love, yes, just what you do

There ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothing, there ain’t nothing I won’t do for us, for you, baby

It may not be easy, this blended family, but baby

‘Cause what you do, what you do, what you do, what you do for love, love

That’s just what you do, yeah, for love

For love of the babies, for love

We’re a blended family, for love

And it’s alright, for love

Said it’s alright!
