Ghetto is when you wanted change for a dollar and I gave you just you asked for, One hundred pennies. It is when my last months phone bill was a ten dollar calling card. It is when my yard got nappy and needed to be mowed and I just lit the yard on fire It is when I was hungry Didn’t have enough to eat. Had hamburger buns, but no hamburger meat. Ketchup no Mustard Collards no Greens. Listened on the radio to Black and no Street Call me ghetto Cause that’s just what I am Just so you know Ghetto could be, green and eggs and ham And Oooh what’s that smell in the kitchen Caviar and green candied yams? See you know ghetto as sunny with no delight You’re very wrong but that too is alright You can go to Baskin Robins for forty different flavors of ice crream I’ll be smart simply using Koolaid and ice cubes Concocting ghetto cream You keep on staring through your telescope at all of heaven’s stars I’ll keep on watching TNT and all those ghetto superstars Please keep on going to sleep and borrowing sandman’s dreams Cause I’ll be having visions and great ideas. Guess What? They’re Ghetto Dreams!
