Songtekst

Ghetto boy ghetto boy
Ghetto boy ghetto boy
What you gonna do down in the ghetto (ghetto)

Here we go, here we, here we go [2x]

People

As the snow flies
On a cold and grey Chicago morning
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto, in the ghetto, in the ghetto)

And his mama cries
'Cause if there's one thing that she don't need
In is another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto, in the ghetto, in the ghetto)

People don't you understand
The child needs a helping hand
He'll grow to be an angry old man someday
Take a look at you and me
Are we too blind to see
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way

Well the world turns
(And the world turns, and the world turns)
And a hungry little boy with a running nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto, in the ghetto, in the ghetto)

And his hunger burns
(And his hunger burns, burns, burns, burns)
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto, in the ghetto, in the ghetto)

People

Then one night in desperation
The young man breaks away
He buys a gun steals a car
Drives it on but he don't get far
And his mama cries
(His mama cries, oh how she cries)
As a crowd gets her son an angry young man
In face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto, in the ghetto, in the ghetto)

And as her young man dies
On a cold and grey Chicago morning
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto, in the ghetto, in the ghetto)

People don't you understand
The child needs a helping hand
He'll grow to be an angry young man someday
(Here we go, here we, here we go)
(Here we go, here we, here we go)

Take a look at you and me
Are we too blind to see
Or do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way

And his mama cries
(And his mama cries, oh how she cries)
On a cold and grey Chicago morning
Another little baby child is born
People
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto, in the ghetto, in the ghetto)

And his mama cries
(And his mama cries, oh how she cries)

What you gonna do, down in the ghetto

Here we go, here we, here we go [4x]
