Ghetto

This song is by J. Holiday and appears on the album Back Of My Lac' (2007).

New day same thing, we got people in the streets
But the governmeny ain't doin' a damn thing, and all we investing in is
Hydro and liquor stores SS 4 doors and 24's
But where I'm from that's what we live for, the ghetto so

If you're livin' in the ghetto and your feelin' me
Let me hear you say OH, OH, OH
If you're sick and tired of the same thing
It's all right to say OH, OH, OH
'Cause you know the Po Po's the project and the old folk
That what we see 24 in the ghetto, corner spots crack rocks and gun shots
Good time the bad times the same place with the sam rhymes
You need to stop waitin' round for the punch line
'Cause ain't nothin' change but the time
Ain't nothing changed same place same thang, just a different day in the ghetto
I know 'cause I been there on the same block in the same gear
Drinkin', smokin', wishin', hopin,

And if you're gettin' sick and tired of the same thing


It's all right to say OH, OH, OH
If you're livin' in the ghetto and you're feelin' me
Let me hear you say OH, OH, OH
Now what you know about the block after dark in the park
The holes in ya shoes makin' holes in ya socks
Roaches in the kitchen wit no food for ya pots
Or ya hands on ya head gettin' pressed by the cops
What you know about the hood when it's good when it ain't
Sittin' in the stoop witcha weed and ya drank
With the old winos askin if you got change
But if you ask me ain't shit changed
I done seen plenty of cats get they ass knocked out
If you come round here better not run your mouth
I ain't never been a thug but I still get down
Shots to SE to uptoen
What you know about rent when it can't get paid
Ya can't get a coupe so you get a Chevrolet
And ya momma on her knees all she can do is pray
But where I'm from this is life same shit different day

(Hook 1 till end)
