Akon - Akon - Ghetto

Akon - Ghetto

Artist:Akon
Ghetto, ghetto, ghetto, ghetto we livin'

These streets remind me of quicksand (quicksand)
When your on it you'll keep goin' down (goin' down)
And there's no one to hold on too
And there's no one to pull you out

You keep on falling (falling)
And no one can here you calling
So you end up self destructing
On the corner with the tuli on the waist tight just got outta the bing doin' stay time

Teeth marks on my back from the canine
Dark memories of when there was no sunshine
Cause they said that I wouldn't make it
(I remember like yesterday)
Holding on to what god gave me

[Chorus]
Cause that's the life when you're
Living in the (ghetto)and
Eating in the (ghetto)or
Sleeping in the (ghetto) (ghetto)
Cause that's the life when you're
Living in the (ghetto)and
Eating in the (ghetto)or
Sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto, ghetto)

No need to cherish luxuries ('cause everythin' come and go)
Even the life that you have is borrowed
(cause your not promised tomorrow)
So live your life as if everyday's gon be your last

Once you move forward can't go back
Best prepare to remove your past

Cause ya gotta be willing to pray
Yea there gotta be (there gotta be) a better way oh
Yea ya gotta be willing to pray
Cause there gotta be (there gotta be) a better day (ay)

Whoever said that this suffering would stop today
A lot of ******s dead or locked away
Teenage women growing up with aids

[Chorus]

Gun shots every night in the (ghetto)
Crooked cops on sight in the (ghetto)
Every day is a fight in the (ghetto)
(oh oh oh oh oh) (ghetto)

Got kids to feed in the (ghetto)
Selling coke and weed in the (ghetto)
Every day somebody bleed in the (ghetto)
(oh oh oh oh oh) (ghetto)

[Chorus]
