We need help in our city, people, we need a lot of help in our town
We need a lot of help in our city, you know, we need a lot of help in our town
'Cause a lot of lil' innocent children, Lord knows, they're being gunned down

We need help in our schools, we need a lot of help in our home
We need a lot of help in our schools, we need a lot of help in our home
'Cause, Lord knows, somewhere, somehow, oh, somethings going all wrong
(spoken: Look a-here)

They tried to tear down the high-rise and the laws say that was wrong
(spoken: Look a-here)
Oh, they tried to tear down the high-rise and the laws say that was wrong
They say, "Long as they're killing one another, you just leave'em alone)

We need help in our city, we need a lot of help, people, here in our town
Oh, we need help in our city, and, uh, we need a lot of help, people, in our town
Just bring along that big ball and tear the whole goddamn thing down
(spoken: Look a-here)
