I was just a little girl
My mother always thought I'd be a star
The streets that nurtured Lauryn Hill
Every ghetto, every city and suburban place I've been
Story starts at Hootaville grew up next to Ivy Hill
Kill the guy in Carter park
Watching kids show off the stolen ones
Make me recall my days in New Jerusalem
You know it's hot, don't forget what you've got
Looking back, looking back, looking back
Looking back

Springfield Ave. had the best popsicles
Main street roots tonic with the dreds
Move the patch from my Lees to the tongue of my shoe
Back when Doug Fresh and Slick Rick were together

Looking back
You know it's hot, don't forget what you've got
Looking back, looking back, looking back
Drill teams on Munn street
Moving Records was on Central Ave.
South Orange Ave. at Borlin pool
Writing your friends' names on your jeans with a marker
July 4th races off of Parker
The Untouchable P.S.P., where all them crazy *****s be
Hillside brings beef with the cops
And everybody's name was Muslim
And everybody used to do the wop
Nah, the Biz Mark used to amp up the party
Every ghetto, every city and suburban place I've been

Looking back
You know it's hot, don't forget what you've got
Looking back, looking back, looking back
You know it's hot, don't forget what you've got
Looking back, looking back, looking back
Looking back, looking back, looking back
Looking back, looking back, looking back
