Ghetto, ghetto, ghetto, ghetto we livin'
These streets remind me of quicksand (quicksand)
And there's no one to hold on too

And no one can here you calling
On the corner with the tuli on the waist tight just got outta the bing doin' stay time
Teeth marks on my back from the canine
Cause they said that I wouldn't make it
Holding on to what god gave me
Living in the (ghetto)and
Sleeping in the (ghetto) (ghetto)
Living in the (ghetto)and
Sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto, ghetto)
No need to cherish luxuries ('cause everythin' come and go)
(cause your not promised tomorrow)

Best prepare to remove your past
Cause ya gotta be willing to pray
Yea ya gotta be willing to pray

A lot of ******s dead or locked away

Crooked cops on sight in the (ghetto)
(oh oh oh oh oh) (ghetto)
Got kids to feed in the (ghetto)
Every day somebody bleed in the (ghetto)
