Junkies leaving needles in the middle of the street
In an alleyway a hooker get beat
By her pimp who wants mo money
He sock her in the eye and laughs like it funny
Shots fired in the middle of the night
Cause you can’t live a day without a gun fight
Gunplay twenty minutes non-stop
And you won’t see a single cop
Cause pig don’t come to protect and serve us
They see are brown skin and them swine get nervous
Watch your back or get played for a fool
Stabbed at a bar over a game of pool
Dope man’s on ever block
That why half of my family getting high on the rock
Times are so damn hard
The dope man is selling on the schoolyard
It just another story that you know so well
When you’re born in a ghetto hell

Old man’s singing the blues
While a punk uptown is getting jump for his shoes
Heads hang on the corner drinking beer
Wish they could be anywhere but here
In this slum you call a neighborhood
If I had money to leave yeah you know I would
Everything is worn down and broken
Airs smell so bad you can’t help but choking
Go out after dark and risk your neck
Because in the hood they got no love nor respect
Everyone fighting to do the best they can
So who can give a damn about their fellow man
You got to be out for number one
If you ain’t then you might get done
Hard to tell who’s with the team
Or who’s just a bitch as punk trying to pull a scheme
It just another story that you know so well
When you’re born in a ghetto hell

Little miss thing
Only fourteen
Pushing a stroller
Couldn’t wait ’til she got older
To have sex
So her man tagged the boots and moved onto the next
She told her mom her mom yelled
They tried to find the father but the brother bailed
Now the girl applying for welfare
But them fools turned her down cause they just don’t care
So the girl got to find a way to make ends meet
Only skill she got is to sell her self on the cold cold streets
Mom found out she was a hoe
Packed the child’s bag and throw her out the door
So she move in with a john who claimed he had love to give
But all he gave her was crack
Now she’s walking round with a baby and a monkey on her back.
It just another story that you know so well
When you’re born in a ghetto hell

 

(extra verses from original recording)

Trying to support a baby and a habit
Once again she went an killed the rabbit
Her john didn’t want no kids
He told her to get an abortion and she swore she did
He found out she lied
Shot her and her baby they both died
He didn’t even sweated it
He just hit the pipe once again to forget it
it is like I told you before
Watch you back or you might find yourself go out the back door

It just another story that you know so well

When you’re born in a ghetto hell
