In the Ghetto lyrics:


As the snow flies
On a cold and gray chicago morning
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
cause if theres one thing that she dont need
Its another little hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, dont you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way

Well the world turns
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
A young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
Tries to run, but he don't get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

And as her young man dies,
On a cold and gray chicago morning,
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto

And his mama cries
