    Carry on Ghetto Woman
    I see you working night to morning light yet no one cares
    Carry on Ghetto Woman
    Cause even though they laugh and talk about the clothes
    You wear
    I wish they could just realize
    That all you've ever needed was someone to free your
    Mind
    Carry on Ghetto Woman
    Cause even in your darkest hours I still see your light

    And when you cry don't you know that I am crying with
    You?
    When people put you down, yeah way down and you feel
    Like you're alone
    Let love be your guide
    You were built to last through any weather
    Oh Ghetto Woman hold on to your dreams
    And all your great philosophies
    You're the reason I believe in me, for real

    Carry on Ghetto Woman
    When you doubt if you're a star, just know we still believe
    Carry on Ghetto Woman
    Even when the news portrays you less than you could be
    I wish they could just realize
    All you ever needed was someone to free your mind
    Carry on Ghetto Woman
    You're the 7th wonder reigning over us at night

    When you cry, don't you know we're right there crying with
    You
    People put you down, yeah way down and you feel like
    You're alone
    Let love be your guide
    You were built to last through any weather
    Oh Ghetto Woman hold on to your dreams and all your
    Great philosophies
    You're the reason I believe in me, for real

    Some say this ghetto land will take you down and poison
    You
    Some say she can do all the things a man can do
    Who said the ghetto's just a place where queens dance
    Naked on the moon?
    We say a woman came to change
    the face of each and every room

    When I was just a baby my momma dropped out of school
    It was only second semester the baby due
    The doctor said "December the first your due date"
    The daddy he was gone off to college he couldn't wait
    Only just a teen with dreams to be on TV
    And living with a mom and my grandma who used to feed
    Me
    We would move around in the city place to place
    The landlord come for the rent face to face
    Her eyes too heavy from working nights as a janitor
    She'd keep it to herself and nobody could understand her
    Even when she thought that she couldn't she carried on
    She couldn't imagine both of her daughters here all alone
    Before the tuxedos and black and white every day
    Used to watch my momma get down on her knees and
    Pray
    She's the reason that I'm even writing this song
    Ghetto Woman no it won't be long. Now sing along

    Let it use you
    Let it use you
    When the love is strong
    It won't let you be alone
    Let it use you
    Just let the spirit lead you
