  • sözleri şöyledir:

    as i walk through the valley of the shadow of death
    i take a look at my life and realize there's nothing left
    cause i've been blastin and laughing so long that
    even my mama thinks that my mind is gone
    but i ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it
    me be treated like a punk, you know that's unheard of
    you better watch how you talking, and where you walking
    or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
    i really hate to trip, but i gotta lope
    as they croak i see myself in the pistol smoke, fool
    i'm the kinda g that little homies wanna be
    like on my knees in the night
    sayin' prayers in the street light

    chorus:

    been spending most our lives living in the gangsta's paradise *2
    keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta's paradise *2

    forgot the situation, they got me facin'
    i can't live a normal life, i was raised by the strip
    so i gotta be down with the hood team
    too much television watching got me chasing dreams
    i'm a educated fool, with money on my mind
    got my ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye
    i'm a loped-out gangsta, set-trippin banger
    and my homies is down, so don't arouse my anger, fool
    death ain't nothing but a heart beat away
    i'm livin life do-or-die ah, what can i say?
    i'm twenty-three now, but will i live to see twenty-four?
    the way things is goin i don't know

    chorus:

    tell me why are we so blind to see
    that the ones we hurt are you and me

    been spending most our lives living in the gangsta's paradise *2
    keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta's paradise *2

    power and the money, money and the power
    minute after minute, hour after hour
    everybody's running, but half of them ain't lookin
    what's goin on in the kitchen, but i don't know what's cookin
    they say i got to learn, but nobody's here to teach me
    if they can't understand it, how can they reach me?
    i guess they can't -- i guess they won't
    i guess they front that's why i know my life is out of luck, fool

    chorus:

    been spending most our lives living in the gangsta's paradise *2
    keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta's paradise *2

    tell me why are we so blind to see
    that the ones we hurt are you and me *2
