    Lyrics

    A boy is born in hard time Mississippi
    Surrounded by four walls that ain't so pretty
    His parents give him love and affection
    To keep him strong moving in the right direction
    Living just enough, just enough for the cityee ha!

    His father works some days for fourteen hours
    And you can bet he barely makes a dollar
    His mother goes to scrub the floors for many
    And you'd best believe she hardly gets a penny
    Living just enough, just enough for the city yeah!

    His sisters black but she is shonuff pretty
    Her skirt is short but lord her legs are sturdy
    To walk to school shes got to get up early
    Her clothes are old but never are they dirty
    Living just enough, just enough for the city um hum

    Her brothers smart hes got more sense than many
    His patience's long but soon he won't have any
    To find a job is like a haystack needle
    Cause where he lives they don't use colored people
    Living just enough, just enough for the city

    Living just enough
    For the city ooh, ooh

    His hair is long, his feet are hard and gritty
    He spends his life walking the streets of new york city
    Hes almost dead from breathing in air pollution
    He tried to vote but to him there's no solution
    Living just enough, just enough for the city
    Yeah, yeah, yeah!

    I hope you hear inside my voice of sorrow
    And that it motivates you to make a better tomorrow
    This place is cruel no where could be much colder
    If we don't change the world will soon be over
    Living just enough, stop giving just enough for the
    City!!!

    La, la, la, la, la, la,
    Da ba da da da da da da
    Da da da da da da
    Da da da da da da da da da
