      Lyrics for Kelis - "Ghetto Children"

      Wake up wake up
      Ghetto children
      Wake up wake up
      Ghetto children

      Ghetto boy
      You're my life
      And there's so much for you to protect and to say
      And baby boy
      Don't hit your wife
      'Cause your kids may grow up someday to be this way
      You don't know
      What you may be
      To some boy
      In society
      There's a secret to why
      You must survive
      So listen to what we say
      'Cause this type of shit happens everyday

      Go for yours cause dreams come true
      And this is the message we bring to you
      Hey now hey now now
      Hey now hey now now
      No matter what teachers say to you
      Ghetto children are beautiful
      Say hey now hey now now
      Hey now hey now now

      Baby girl
      You're my life
      It's important that you smile
      And never cry
      Study math and your sciences
      Maybe you'll figure why we subtract and multiply
      You don't know
      What you may be
      To some girl
      In society
      There's a secret to why we must survive
      So listen to what we say
      'Cause this type of shit happens everyday

      Go for yours cause dreams come true
      And this is the message we bring to you
      Hey now hey now now
      Hey now hey now now
      No matter what teachers say to you
      Ghetto children are beautiful
      Say hey now hey now now
      Hey now hey now now

      Crack town
      Ghetto in the city
      Buildings are abandoned
      The girls are still pretty
      A child looks in the mirror
      Here to see my life clearer
      All I see is ghetto keys to this jet black carrera
      Of course 911 don't mean help
      The only ones that need help is them sons without wealth
      It's apparent that this nation
      They don't know what they facin
      Young natural born killers
      And these street corner masons
      You want that type of money
      That you see in a mob flick
      Would you stash it your wallet?
      Yes with the lumps under my carpet
      Listen to your heart
      Why should I listen to you?
      I was here from the start
      But you don't bring no money through
      Look I only fill capes
      And to get it I kill jakes
      By the time I'm 21
      I'll be the ghetto bill gates
      You were born to be an angel
      That it was in my brain too
      Now the only star spangled
      Is coming outta my bangle
      Now that I'm out (ghetto ghetto boy)
      It's like the whole world blames you
      Although the ghetto's nothing like the conclusion I came to
      Your friends ill you claimin' both sides (ghetto ghetto girl)
      Now they don't claim you
      Ghetto children change the world
      Don't let it change you

      Go for yours cause dreams come true
      And this is the message we bring to you
      Hey now hey now now
      Hey now hey now now
      No matter what teachers say to you
      Ghetto children are beautiful
      Say hey now hey now now
      Hey now hey now now

      Go for yours cause dreams come true
      And this is the message we bring to you
      Hey now hey now now
      Hey now hey now now
      No matter what teachers say to you
      Ghetto children are beautiful
      Say hey now hey now now
      Hey now hey now now

      Little children the ones that caught up
      The whole world wants to be a part of
      A little ghetto thang
      A little ghetto thang (to fade)
