"Ghetto Child"
[feat. Shaggy]


{All the ghettos around the world}
{Dig this}
{Ghetto Fabulous Joe}
{Shaggy}
All the children sing {Uh}

I'm a ghetto child
I'm a ghetto child (Check it, out)

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

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

Just because I'm a ghetto child
I won't live down to your expectations (No, no)
Just believe that a ghetto child
Can rise in the highest celebration (Oh)
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

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

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

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)

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
Know that I am a ghetto child
But I can see the best in me, can you
I'm a ghetto child (Ooh, yeah, ooh)

{Hey, yo', look at me inna 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

{Now see, 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

I believe that it can be done (Yeah, oh)
Gotta start somewhere and I'm that one
All the children sing (Yeah, yeah)
All the children sing (Yeah, yeah)

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 (Oh...oh...oh...)
Know that I am a ghetto child
But I can see the best in me, can you
I'm a ghetto child (Let's go to church now)

Just because I'm a ghetto child (Uh)
I won't live down to your expectations (Take me to
church now)
Just believe that a ghetto child (Ooh)
Can rise in the highest celebration (Hey, hey)
Know that I am a ghetto child (Ooh, yeah)
But I can see the best in me, can you
I'm a ghetto child (Hey, ghetto child,
whoa...oh...ooh...)

Just because I'm a ghetto child
I won't live down to your expectations (Sing a song
for me)
Just believe that a ghetto child (Sing a song for me)
Can rise in the highest celebration (Everybody sing it
now, yeah)
Know that I am a ghetto child
But I can see (Ooh, yeah) the best in me, can you (Oh)
I'm a ghetto child (So I can see the best in me, can
you)

It's not where you're from, it's where you're gonna be
(Hey)
It's not where you're from, it's where you're gonna be
