Story about this misheard lyric by: Rochelle C.

The song is about extreme poverty and the reality of life for some living in the ghetto and all the dysfunctional-ism that it entails. The correct lyric, "broke my last Dad's jaw" indicates that it is talking about a woman who has lived with many different men that her son sees as just another loser Dad in the ghetto household. This mother marries or has shacked up with many different men. The son was in a fight with his mother's most recent boyfriend; just (another) one of his mother's live-in boyfriends and broke his jaw. (He broke his last Dad's jaw) in a fight. Then the next line says, meaning the "Dad" still wants to continue fighting after the son broke his jaw. Then the next line says, which means there is no stability or peace in the life of the person the song is portraying.
