    Little ghetto boy
    playing in the ghetto street
    what'cha gonna do when you grow up
    & have to face responsibility?

    Will you spend your days & nights in a poolroom?
    will you sell caps of madness in your neighborhood?
    little ghetto boy

    You already know how rough life can be
    'cause you've seen so much pain & misery

    Little ghetto boy
    your daddy was blown away
    he robbed that grocery store
    don't you know that was a sad, sad ol' day

    All your young life you've seen such misery & pain?
    world is a cruel place to live, and it ain't gonna change
    you're so young, you've got so far to go
    don't think you'll reach your goal, young man
    hanging by the poolroom door

    Little ghetto boy
    when, when, when you become a man
    you can make things change, yeah
    hey-hey, if you just take a stand
    you've got to believe in yourself & all you do
    you've got to fight to make it better
    then you'll see how others will start believing, too
    then my son, things will start to get better

    hey, everything has got to get better
    everything has got to get better
    everything has got to get better
    everything has got to get better
