    "In the Ghetto [Multimedia Track]" Lyrics

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

    As the snow flies
    On a cold and grey Chicago morn
    A poor little baby child is born in the ghetto

    And his mama cries
    Cause there's one thing that she don't need
    Is another little hungry mouth to feed in the ghetto

    Oh people don't you understand
    This child needs a helping hand
    He's gonna grow to be an angry young man some day
    Take a look at you and me

    Are we that blind to see?
    Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way?

    And the world turns
    And the hungry little boy with the runny nose
    Plays in the streets 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
    The young man breaks away
    He buys a gun and steals a car
    He tries to run but he don't get far

    And his mama cries
    A crowd gathers round an angry young man
    Face down in the street with a gun in his hand in the ghetto

    And as her young man dies
    On a cold and grey Chicago morn
    Another little baby child is born in the ghetto
