    Lyrics

    I was the third brother of five
    Doing whatever I had to do to survive
    I'm not saying what I did was alright
    Trying to break out of the ghetto was a day to day fight

    Been down so long, getting up didn't cross my mind
    I knew there was a better way of life that I was just trying to find
    You don't know what you'll do until you're put under pressure
    Across 110th Street is a hell of a tester

    Across 110th Street
    Pimps trying to catch a woman that's weak
    Across 110th Street
    Pushers won't let the junkie go free
    Across 110th Street
    Woman trying to catch a trick on the street
    Across 110th Street
    You can find it all in the street

    I got one more thing I'd like to y'all about right now

    Hey brother, there's a better way out
    Snorting that coke, shooting that dope man you're copping out
    Take my advice, it's either live or die
    You've got to be strong, if you want to survive

    The family on the other side of town
    Would catch hell without a ghetto around
    In every city you find the same thing going down
    Harlem is the capital of every ghetto town

    Across 110th Street
    Pimps trying to catch a woman that's weak
    Across 110th Street
    Pushers won't let the junkie go free
    Across 110th Street
    A woman trying to catch a trick on the street
    Across 110th Street
    You can find it all in the street

    Look around you, look around you
    Look around you, look around you
