Little Ghetto Boy - John Legend & The Roots

 

My grandmother suits was tailor made

Sundays Mahalia played

Simple familiar ways

Like how she kneeled and prayed

Willin master forgive us

Our trust pastors had us real afraid

I never listened yet I still obeyed

I got to see how Philly played at such an early age

What my father was into sent him to his early grave

Then moms started chasin that base like Willie Mays

My childhood was all of 40 nights and 40 days

Trouble was my ball and chain

Shorties would call me names

Humble beginnings but a star is what it all became

My journey from a dirty hallway to the Hall of Fame

Music my therapeutic way to cope with all this pain

Was headed for the drain

Soakin before the rainwater came

And chaos into the order came

I started doin what I'm 'sposed to do in life

Tryin to move out of the dark

And closer to the light

They say if you get a chance to do it

Overdo it right

Tomorrow isn't promised every time

 

You say goodnight

Knahmtalkinabout Uhh yo

Story of a little ghetto boy check it out

Yeah yeahhh

Little ghetto boy ohhh

 

Playin in the ghetto street ay-ayyyy

 

What'chu gonna do when you grow up

 

And have to face responsibility

 

Yeah yeahhh

 

Will you spend your days and nights in a pool room

 

Will you sell caps of madness

 

To the neighborhood

Little ghetto boy

 

You already know how rough life could be

 

Hard to see so much pain and misery

 

Yeahhhhhhh yeahhhh

 

Little ghetto boy yeah

 

Your daddy was blown away

 

Heyyyy yeahhh

 

He robbed that grocery store yeah

 

Don't you know that was a sad sad day
