Little Ghetto Boy - Donny Hathaway

Little ghetto boy
Playing in the ghetto street
What'cha gonna do when you grow up
& have to face responsibility?

Will you spend your days & nights in a poolroom?
Will you sell caps of madness in your neighborhood?
Little ghetto boy

You already know how rough life can be
'Cause you've seen so much pain & misery

Little ghetto boy
Your daddy was blown away
He robbed that grocery store
Don't you know that was a sad, sad ol' day

All your young life you've seen such misery & pain?
World is a cruel place to live, and it ain't gonna change
You're so young, you've got so far to go
Don't think you'll reach your goal, young man
Hanging by the poolroom door

Little ghetto boy
When, when, when you become a man
You can make things change, yeah
Hey-hey, if you just take a stand
You've got to believe in yourself & all you do
You've got to fight to make it better
Then you'll see how others will start believing, too
Then my son, things will start to get better

Hey, everything has got to get better
Everything has got to get better
Everything has got to get better
Everything has got to get better
