Jay-Z starts telling the story:

  Mama had four kids, but she’s a lesbian
  Had to pretend so long that she’s a thespian
  Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate
  Society shame and the pain was too much to take
  Cried tears of joy when you fell in love
  Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her
  I just wanna see you smile through all the hate
  Marie Antoinette, baby, let ’em eat cake
