Ghetto Lyrics

 

Ghetto Song Lyrics


Said I had to raise, raise, raise
My kids in the ghetto
'Cause there was no place else to go
Listening to the devil's lies
Everywhere you go you're in his eyes
I said lord, lord, lord, can't stand it no more

Somebody said won't you send them home
Send them home where they belong
But I'm still trying to iind out how we got here
'Cause I know it wasn't on our own

All we did was graze the lazy days
Back off in the ghetto
Singing "Lord we shall overcome"
But now we sing a different tune
Cause while you're sending people to the moon
Here on earth the end came but not too soon

Somebody said won't you send them home
Send them home where they belong
But I'm still trying to find out how we got here
'Cause I know it wasn't on our own

Said I had to raise, raise, raise
My kids in the ghetto
'Cause there was no place else to go

Listening to the devil's lies
Everywhere you go you're in his eyes
I said, lord, lord, lord, can't stand it no more

Somebody said won't you send them home
Send them home where they belong
But I'm still trying to find out how we got here
Cause I know it wasn't on our own Larry Graham
