Versuri J. Holiday - Ghetto



New day, same thing, we got people in the streets 
But the government ain't doin' a thing 
And all we invest in is and liquor stores 
SS 4 doors and 24's 
Where I'm from that's what we live for, the ghetto so 
 
If you're livin' in the ghetto and you're feelin' me 
Let me hear you say oh, oh, oh, oh 
And if you're gettin' sick and tired of the same thing 
It's alright to say oh, oh, oh, oh 
 
'Cause you know the po-po's 
The projects and the old folk 
That's what we see 24 in the ghetto 
Corner spots, shots 
 
Good times and bad times 
The same place with the same rhymes 
You need to stop waitin' round for the punch line 
'Cause ain't nothin' changed but the time 
 
Ain't nothin' changed, same place same thing 
Just a different day in the ghetto 
I know 'cause I've been there 
On the same block in the same gear 
Drinkin', smokin', wishin', hopin' 
 
And if you're gettin' sick and tired of the same thing 
It's alright to say oh, oh, oh, oh 
If you're livin' in the ghetto and you're feelin' me 
Let me hear you say oh, oh, oh, oh 
 
Now what you know about the block after dark in the park 
The holes in your shoes makin' holes in your socks 
Roaches in the kitchen, with no food for your pots 
Or your hands on your head, gettin' pressed by the cops 
 
What you know about the hood when it's good, when it ain't? 
Sittin' on the stoop witcha and your drink 
With the old winos askin' if you got change 
But if you ask me ain't changed 
 
I done seen plenty of cats get they knocked out 
If you come 'round here better not run your mouth 
I ain't never been a thug but I still get down 
Shots to [Incomprehensible], shots to Uptown 
 
What you know about rent when it can't get paid? 
You can't get a Coupe so you get a Chevrolet 
And your momma on her knees, all she can do is pray 
Where I'm from this is life, same, different day 
 
If you're livin' in the ghetto and you're feelin' me 
Let me hear you say oh, oh, oh, oh 
And if you're gettin' sick and tired of the same thing 
It's alright to say oh, oh, oh, oh
