Akon - Ghetto

Ghetto, Ghetto, Ghetto, Ghetto we livin

verse one

These streets remind me of quicksand (quicksand)
When your on it you'll keep goin' down (goin' down)
And there's no one to hold on too
And there's no one to pull you out
You keep on fallin' (fallin')
And no one can hear you callin'
So you end up self destructing
On the corner with the tuli on the waist line just got outta the bing doin state time, Teeth marks on my back from the k9
Dark Memories of when there was no sunshine
Cause they said that I wouldn't make it
(I remember like yesterday)
Holdin' on to what god gave me

chorus

Cause thats the life when your
Living in the (ghetto)
And eating in the (ghetto)
Or sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto livin')
Thats the life when your
Living in the (ghetto)
And eating in the (ghetto)
Or sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto, ghetto livin)

verse two

No need to cherish luxuries (cause everythin' come and go)
Even the life that you have is borrowed
(Cause your not promised tomorrow)
So live your life as if everydays' gone be your last (be your last)
Once you move forward can't go back
Best prepare to remove your past (remove your past)

Cause ya gotta be willin to pray
Yes There gotta be (there gotta be) a better way oh
Yes ya gotta be willing to pray
Cause there gotta be (there gotta be) a better day (ay)

Whoever said that this struggle would stop today
a lot of dead or locked away
Teenage Women growing up with aids

chorus

Cause that's the life when your
Living in the (ghetto)
or eating in the (ghetto)
Or sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto livin)
That's the life when your
Living in the (ghetto)
or eating in the (ghetto)
Or sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto, ghetto livin)

bridge

Gun shots every night in the (ghetto)
Crooked cops on sight in the (ghetto)
Every day is a fight in the (ghetto)
(oh oh oh oh oh) (ghetto)
Got kids to feed in the (ghetto)
Selling coke and weed in the (ghetto)
Every day somebody bleeding in the (ghetto)
(oh oh oh oh oh) (ghetto livin)

that's the life when your
Living in the (ghetto)
or living by the (ghetto)
or eating in the (ghetto, ghetto livin)
thats the life when your
Living in the (ghetto)
or sleeping in the (ghetto)
or living in the (ghetto, ghetto, ghetto livin)

(ooohhoohh)(ghetto livin)
