Sex Education: Ghetto Style

Gil Scott-Heron


We got, uh, uh, a couple of things, you know, like, on drugs
I used to a have poem called
"Why You Keep Beep-Beep With That Dope?
"You know? Like, uh, we had to ice that one
because of, uh, like, like a bunch of people, um
complaints of the language we were using
I'd like to do a thing on, um, sex education, uh, ghetto style
Um, if I can have something moderate 4 4
I'll be into something. Um, 'cause we were
we were wondering just how, um, Freud's analysis
of-or psychoanalysis-of dreams
and, and sex would come into play if, um
if it had been around about thirty years ago
when the, when the brothers was doing
what they was doing in the streets
This is called "Sex Education: Ghetto Style"

I was doing it when I was a colored boy
of eight or nine or ten
I had never heard of Sigmund Freud
but, hell, I was doing it then
I was doing it in my teenaged years
when I was running the ghetto street
Now I had never seen me no ink blot test
but it still felt good to me
I was doing it when I arrived in college
searching for my degree
But Lord knows a degree wasn't all I got
and that's the way it's supposed to be
I hope that when I have kids of my own
they really don't get shook
When I tell them that there are things
they've got to learn that can't be found in books
