Lyrics In The Ghetto (Live)

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born in the ghetto
And his mama cries
'Cos if there's one thing that she don't need lt's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto
People don't you understand the child needs a helping hand?
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me are we too blind to see?
Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way well the world turns
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto
And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal and he learns how to fight
In the ghetto
Then one night in desperation a young man breaks away
He buys a gun steals a car tries to run but he don't get far
And his mama cries
As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto and as her young man dies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto and his mama cries
