In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refused to shine
People tell me there ain't no use in trying

Now little girl you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
Your gonna die before your time is through

I see my daddy in bed and dying
See his hair turning grey
He's been working and slaving his life away

(Yeah!)
Now every morning he would wake up with his 3rd pointing from the streets
(Yeah!)
My love woman tell you one day I promised myself
(Yeah!)
And that my family ain't gonna go this way
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!, yeah, yeah!)
And that's why I'm telling you honey

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life for me and you

I don't care if you're so young and pretty
But one thing I know is true
Your gonna die before your time is through

See my daddy in bed and dying
See his hair turning grey
He's been working and slaving his life away

(Yeah!)
And he came home tonight
(Yeah!)
And he said son I've seen such a sight
(Yeah!)
I've seen the bullets exploding in the square
(Yeah!)
And there's no need for you to carry on this way
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)
I'm telling you we're Oowww

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life for me and you

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life for me and yeaaaa
Come on baby
You know it baby
