Life in the Ghetto

As the gangsta dies 
On a hot and humid Florida mornin' 
A poor grievin' young wife is torn 
This is ghetto 
And his crew cries 
Because if there's one thing that they don't need 
It's another corner boy to bleed 
This is ghetto 

Society, don't you understand 
The hood needs a helping hand 
Or they'll grow to be all angry young men one day 
Take a look at them and me, 
Are we too black to see, 
Do we simply shut our mouths 
And speak in another way 

While the hood rolls 
And an inspired young boy with a funny jive 
Deals on the corner as he collects high fives 
This is ghetto 

And his crib burns 
So he starts to scare the folks with fright 
And he teaches how to deal 
And he teaches how to bite 
This is ghetto 

Then one night in conversation
A young rat screams out loud 
She buys a toy, steals a heart, 
Tries for fun, but it won't even start 
Then her man tries

As the crew gathers 'round a stupid young hoe 
Face down in the pillow with a dildo in her snatch 
This is ghetto 

As the neighbourhood sighs 
On a hot and humid Florida mornin' 
Another poor grievin' young wife is torn 
This is ghetto.
