GETO BOYS - The World is a Ghetto lyrics

rate me

Chorus (flaj)

What we see [what we see] everyday [everyday]

Livin' in the ghetto this is where I stay

[what we do] what we do [to get by] to get by

Live or diethe world is a ghetto


Lets take a journey to the other side

Where many people learn to live with their handicaps

While others die

Where muthafuckas had no money spots

And if they did then they ass went insane

When all the money stops

I'm from the ghetto so I'm used to that

Look on your muthafuckin map and find texas

And see where houston at

Its on the borderline of hard times

And it's seldom that your hear niggas breakin' and givin' God time

That's why your ass (? ? ? ? ) and pray for me

Because I know that even I got to die

And he got a day for me

And every morning I wake up I'm kinda glad to be alive

Cause thousands of my homeboys died

And very few died of old age

In most cases the incident covered up the whole page

From amsterdam to amarillo

It ain't no secret

The world is a ghetto

Chorus (flaj)

(bushwick bill)

Five hundred niggas died in guerilla warfare

In a village in africabut didn't nobody care

They just called up the goddamn gravedigga

And said come get these muthafuckin niggas

Just like they do in the 5th ward

In the south park and the bronx and the watts

You know they got crooked cops

Working for the system

Makin' po muthafuckas out of victims

Don't nobody give a fuck about the po

It's double jeopardy if your black or latino

They got muthafuckin drugs in the slums

Got us killing one another over crumbs

Think I'm lying? well muthafucka I got proof

Name a section in your city where minorities group

And i'ma show you prostitutesdope and hard times

And a murder rate that never declines

And little babies sittin on the porch smellin' smelly

Cryin cause they ain't got no food in they bellies

They call my neighbourhood a jungle

And me an animallike they do the people in rawanda

Fools fleeing their countries to come here black

But see the same bullshit and head right back

They find out what others already know

The world is a ghetto

(willie d)

What's up outta towner? southern nigga downer

I wish you would bring your muthafuckin ass around here

With that hip shit shit from your block

You fuck around and get shipped back home to ya momma in a pine box

Cause we don't play that shit in 5th ward

We got killas and hustlas and playas to so nigga disregard

What your seeing on them western movies

Cause yo! I ain't never rode a horse before

Hothink we slow? smash the gas

And watch how fast I'll put these hands on yo' bitch ass

Try to load them diceyou'll meet the gravedigga

Cause game recognize game scheisty ass nigga

See I done seen fools die for less

Than a goddamn cigarette buttfor fuckin' wit my set

So get that frown off your face busta

Cause you ghetto ain't no harder than mine
