Little ghetto boy , playing in the ghetto street Whatcha' gonna do when you grow up and have to face responsiblity ? Will you spend your days and nights in the pool room ? Will you sell caps of madness to the neighborhood ? Little ghetto boy You already know how proud life can be 'cause you've seen so much pain and misery
Little ghetto boy Your daddy was blown away He robbed that grocery store Don't you know that was a sad , sad old day ? All your young life You've seen such misery and pain The world is a cruel place to live and it ain't gonna change You're so young You've got so far to go on and don't think you'll reach your goal Young man , little ghetto boy , look at you
Little ghetto boy When , when , when you become a men you can make things change if you just take the stand You gotta believe it yourself in all you do You've gotta fight to make it better then you will see how others will start believing to Then , my son , things will start to get better
Everything has got to get better , Everything has got to get better ...
