Ghetto Child Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
All the ghettos around the world
Dig this, ghetto Fabulous Joe
Shaggy
All the children sing
Verse 2
I'm a ghetto child
I'm a ghetto child
(Check it, out)
Verse 3
there's a world out there that I wanna see
There's a man that I'm destined to be
I won't be stopped by the ghetto streets
I believe inside that I can't be beat
Verse 4
This life could be a ball and chain
If you let yourself get caught in the game
I had some friends who sold drugs for dough
But I don't intend to go down that road
Verse 5
Just because I'm a ghetto child
I won't live down to your expectations
Just believe that a ghetto child
Can rise in the highest celebration
Verse 6
Know that I am a ghetto child
But I can see the best in me, can you
I'm a ghetto child
All the ghettos around the world, dig this
Verse 7
One day I'm gonna change the world
Make a better place for every boy and girl
Everyone in need, homeless families
Have a place to sleep and food to eat
Verse 8
I?ll take every gun off the streets
So another tear won't be shed in grief
And every thug in every hood
I will make ?em change from bad to good
Verse 9
I believe that it can be done
Gotta start somewhere and I'm that one
All the children sing
(Yeah, yeah)
All the children sing
(Yeah, yeah)
Verse 10
Just because I'm a ghetto child
I won't live down to your expectations
Just believe that a ghetto child

I'm a ghetto child

Hey, yo?, look at me in a different light
Spare me all about those stereotypes
Ain't no madness that'll bring me down
Gonna take this life and turn it around
Verse 13
That's right, the sky?s the limit, I won't be denied
Ain't no stoppin? me, I'm a ghetto child
And at the end when it?s said and done
We will all be singin? this ghetto song
Verse 14
I believe that it can be done
Gotta start somewhere and I'm that one
All the children sing
(Yeah, yeah)
All the children sing
(Yeah, yeah)
