Ghetto Lyrics - Akon

Review The Song (13)

Ghetto, Ghetto, Ghetto, Ghetto livin

[Verse one]

These streets remind me of quicksand (quicksand)
When your on it you'll keep goin down (goin down)
And there's noone to hold on too
And there's noone to pull you out
You keep on fallin (falling)
And noone can here you callin
So you end up self destructing
On the corner with the tuli on the waist line just got outta the bing doin state 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)
Holdin on to what god gave me

Cause thats the life when ur
Living in the (ghetto)and
Eating in the (ghetto)or
Sleeping in the (ghetto) (ghetto)
Cause thats the life when ur
Living in the (ghetto)and
Eating in the (ghetto)or
Sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto, ghetto)

[Verse two]

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 everydays' gon be your last
Once you move forward can't go back
Best prepare to remove your past

Cause ya gotta be willin 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 struggle would stop today
A lot of niggas dead or locked away
Teenage Women growing up with aids


Cause thats the life when your
Living in the (ghetto) oh
Eating in the (ghetto) or
Sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto)
Thats the life when ur
Living in the (ghetto)oh
Eating in the (ghetto) or
Sleeping in the (ghetto, ghetto, ghetto)


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)


Thats the life when your
Living in the (ghetto)oh
Living by the (ghetto)oh
Eating in the (ghetto, ghetto)
Thats the life when your
Living in the (ghetto)oh
Sleeping in the (ghetto)
Living in the (ghetto, ghetto, ghetto)

love this song | Reviewer: Komang | 1/3/13

This song touched me particularly cause living in the ghetto isnt easy at all. AKON in this song related the difficulties of ghettolife. I think the people in the ghetto's need some attention, their live is so difficult. With such songs as this one, the artists give hope for the people who live in the ghetto. Half of the people don't know a thing about their live, now they will know and maybe they will think about those people. Go on like this Akon.

EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/28/07

What I observe about AKON’s music was that, his music was simply built on personal life experience, which is very good in every aspect of life.
Secondly he live, reason, think, and act like a real son of African.
AKON’s music educates me a lot, I appreciate his hard work towards entertaining and affecting life of the public positively.
I love LEANING, discovering, and making friends, which makes me love AKON’s music.
What else can I say about AKON? He has outstanding qualities that differentiate him from other artists/musicians. Some of these outstanding qualities are cute voice, good rhythm and life changing messages.
This track is honest, true, lovely, and hard telling experience.
AKON, you are talented.
Your works are superb and wonderful.
I love you from the bottom of my HEART.
