    Little child
    Runnin' wild
    Watch a while
    You see he never smiles

    Broken home
    Father gone
    Mama tired
    So he's all alone

    Kind of sad
    Kind of mad
    Ghetto child
    Thinkin' he's been had

    In the back of his mind he's sayin'

    Didn't have to be here
    You didn't have to love for me
    While I was just a nothin' child
    Why couldn't they just let me be
    Let me be, let me be, let me be

    One room shack
    On the alley-back
    Control, I'm told
    From across the track

    Where is the mayor
    Who'll make all things fair
    He lives outside
    Our polluted air

    And I didn't have to be here
    You didn't have to love for me
    While I was just a nothin' child
    Why couldn't they just let me be
    Let me be, let me be, let me be

    I got a jones
    Runnin' through ma' bones
    I'm sorry son
    All your money's gone

    Painful rip
    In my upper hip
    I guess it's time
    To take another trip

    Don't care what nobody say
    I got to take the pain away
    It's getting worser day by day
    And all my life has been this way
    Can't reason with the pusherman
    Finance is all that he understands
    'You junkie, mama cries, you know'
    Would rip her, but I love her so
    Love her so, now....
