I know you think you're cool
Lord if they bus your kids to school
I know you think you're cool
Just cause they bus your kids to school
But you ain't got a thing to lose
You just got the get out of the ghetto blues
I know you think you're cool

If you're gettin' two welfare checks
You done told me you think you're cool
Because you're gettin' two welfare checks

Yea but you got ten years to lose (if they catch you)
Just tryin' to fight that get out of the ghetto blues
If he don't catch you in the wash

Lord knows he'll catch you in the rinse
I know you think you're cool
Just cause you shooting that stuff in your arm
I seen you nodding

Cause you shoot that stuff in your arm
And it don't matter which pine box you choose
You got the get out of the ghetto blues
