  • [Chorus]
    Would you like to go with me, down my dead end street?
    Would you like to come with me, to village ghetto life?

    Let me tell you bout the village where I dwell, it's a...
    Living hell still tryin to make a heaven outta this right here
    Watching fo' the postman hopin fo' paper
    Please stop the bus mister driver, wait up we got...
    Rock fights where the dead end meets
    The stop lights is out so it's dead in the streets
    The countyline look long, but I'm kinda hungry
    So I pack a sack lunch, and got on
    Late for class again, it's half past 10
    And moms gonna whoop ma ass again
    Now and then I get the feelin that the world is mine
    I start sittin back watchin time fly by
    But uh, I'm so proud to say
    That the ghetto is the reason that I'm loud today
    And you come get a glimpse of what's happenin
    See for yourself how it is where I live at

    [Chorus]

    It shouldn't take long to see, the place that belongs to me
    It's all good, ain't nothin like home to me
    No Diplomas but I, got some knowledge out of
    My other partners that made it up outta here
    And now not a whole lot of us get rich
    But like the old saying goes "Ain't life a bitch?"
    Ah shit, the Landlord just raised the rent, fuck that!
    Dem old days that came and went like this
    There's more ways you can use your time instead of
    Looking for shit that you used to find
    By the age of 16 ya finally come to grips
    Livin life like this and nothin else mean shit
    Looking for a smooth getaway
    Cool, cuz soon I'll see a better day
    And if not - then I gots to deal with it
    I ain't makin this, up hell naw it's real nigga

    [Chorus]

    No more suprises hopin I can open your eyes
    And so I'm trying, instead of lookin up in the sky
    I'm in the fast lane speed dreaming
    Nappin on cruise control please believe it!
    In my city when you see it at night, look different than it does in the day
    Ain't no tellin what'd happen if it wasn't this way
    I ain't trippin off of shit it's a good thing
    I made a name off the local neighborhood gang
    And at that time I started rhyming
    And, set up a hill without help to start climbing
    And I've been around this for a minute
    You gotta get your own mix and get wit it
    I made myself, learn to pay myself
    Nigga the game don't wait so I'ma stay myself
    And now you can go and tell another nigga
    On how the real ones is livin in the ghetto

    [Chorus 2x]
