Ghetto Woman - Janelle Monáe (加奈兒·夢奈)

Carry on Ghetto Woman

 

I see you working night to morning light yet no one cares

 

Carry on Ghetto Woman

 

Cause even though they laugh and

Talk about the clothes you wear

I wish they could just realize

 

That all you've ever needed was someone to free your mind

Carry on Ghetto Woman

 

Cause even in your darkest hours I still see your light

 

And when you cry don't you know

That I am crying with you

 

When people put you down yeah way down and you feel

Like you're alone

 

Let love be your guide

 

You were built to last through any weather

 

Oh Ghetto Woman hold on to your dreams

And all your great philosophies

You're the reason I believe in me for real

Carry on Ghetto Woman

 

When you doubt if you're a star

Just know we still believe

 

Carry on Ghetto Woman

 

Even when the news portrays you less than you could be

I wish they could just realize

 

All you ever needed was someone to free your mind

 

Carry on Ghetto Woman

 

You're the 7th wonder reigning over us at night

 

When you cry don't you know

 

We're right there crying with you

 

People put you down yeah way down

And you feel like you're alone

 

Let love be your guide

 

You were built to last through any weather

 

Oh Ghetto Woman hold on to your dreams

And all your great philosophies

You're the reason I believe in me for real

Some say this ghetto land will

Take you down and poison you

 

Some say she can do all the things a man can do

 

Who said the ghetto's just a place

Where queens dance naked on the moon

 

We say a woman came to change

The face of each and every room

 

When I was just a baby

My momma dropped out of school

It was only second semester the baby due

The doctor said “December the first your due date”

The daddy he was gone off to college he couldn't wait

Only just a teen with dreams to be on TV

And living with a mom and

My grandma who used to feed me

We would move around in the city place to place

The landlord come for the rent face to face

Her eyes too heavy from working nights as a janitor

She'd keep it to herself and nobody could understand her

Even when she thought that she couldn't she carried on

She couldn't imagine both of her daughters here all alone

Before the tuxedos and black and white every day

Used to watch my momma

Get down on her knees and pray

She's the reason that

I'm even writing this song

Ghetto Woman no it won't be long Now sing along

Let it use you

 

Let it use you

 

When the love is strong

 

It won't let you be alone

 

Let it use you

 

Just let the spirit lead you
