  • "in the ghetto" diye bi elvis sarkisi var, nick cave versiyonuna kefilim..
  • (bkz: downtown)
  • ghetto kid olarak phil collinsin both sides albümündeki both sides of the story şarkısında da geçer.
    white man turns the corner, finds himself within a different world
    ghetto kid grabs his shoulder, throws him up against the wall
    he says "would you respect me if i didn't have this gun
    'cos without it, i don't get it, and that's why i carry one"
  • amerikan versiyonlarinda bol miktarda icki dukkani, kilise ve cenaze levazimatcisi olur.
  • akon 'un trouble isimli albümündeki güzel bir parça.

    ghetto, ghetto, ghetto, ghetto we livin

    these streets remind me of quicksand (quicksand)
    when your on it you'll keep goin down (goin down)
    and there's no one to hold on too
    and there's no one to pull you out
    you keep on fallin (falling)
    and no one can here you callin
    so you end up self destructing
    on the corner with the tuli on the waist tight just got outta the bing doin stay 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)

    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 drama would stop today
    a lot of niggers 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)
  • fabolousin real talk albümünden en azindan breathe kadar basarili sarkisi. evet evet is var bu adamda..

    from hood to hood they see what's hood
    and know who i be! uh!

    i got the yankee leaning, just sittin over to browse
    and the g4 is just getting over the clouds
    you can't tell me that i ain't what's up right now
    i got a bottle of tequila upside down
    there's some chicks wit boyfriends that are up tight now
    cause they know the big 'dog' had a 'pups' like wow
    i'm stuck in my city ways
    heading over seas wit a zip of new york city's haze
    you rats can keep running through your city's maze
    until you get sprayed with the pesticide
    i know you in that hole, you best to hide
    like the rest who tried, who went and testified
    of course your girl wanna slide over and be rubbed
    and don't mind taking rides over the g dubs
    i ride rovers on spre-dubs
    please don't be another dude who died over a ski dub, chill

    from hood to hood they see what's hood and know who i be
    from block to block they see it, not can't know who i be
    from state to state they cannot hate, they know who i be
    from the east to west, through the midwest and downsouth it's ghetto!
    (it's ghetto-oh!) it's ghetto! (it's ghetto-oh!) it's ghetto!
    (it's ghetto-oh!) it's ghetto! (it's ghetto-ohh!) it's ghetto!

    i get it jumping like a lo lo '64
    and bet they hop on it like a pogo stick pro
    i'm chilling wit these go go chicks though
    that do the kind of things that belong in a porno flick yo
    you know it's him and the gang
    wit the bling worked on, that remind you of lemon meringue
    but remember the thangs, ain't too far
    and y'all wanna hear em go bang bang bang
    like john witherspoon, i'm watching em closely
    i know the snakes gon' slither soon
    the two toned maybach's getting delivered soon
    the back feels like sitting in the living room
    i'm so hard bodied like the suit on batman
    it's that man that back to back plat' scan
    i'm back for the third time, i make words rhyme for a living
    you probably heard i'm still ghetto, nigga!

    [chorus]

    they tried to put two 9's on me, just like gretzky
    but my lawyer saw through it just like wet tees
    i smoke till my eyes look just like jet li's
    on islands where the water's blue just like pepsi
    yeah the trigger just might get squeezed
    and the slugs will skip over your waves, just like jet skis
    hoes know ghetto from new york, call em the fresh prince
    and throw rose petals when i walk
    they love how i came back hard like good blow
    and i'm still a heart throb to a hood ho
    that's what hood though, yes i would know
    that's cause i'm in the streets like man hole covers
    rims look like blades when a fan blow brother
    i'm waiting on a storm to land, roast others
    the man no other, cause i been in it
    my time is money, y'all couldn't buy ten minutes
    i'm gone! catch up!
  • her ne kadar hızlı, ritmik bir şarkı olsada içeriğindeki anlam bakımından hüzünlü, bir şarkıdır, akonun ghetto'su.
  • akon'un en güzel şarkılarından biri.nedenini bilemediğim bir sebebten dolayı ağlatabiliyor bu şarkı insanı.nasıl gangsta s paradise ı dinlerken ağlayabiliyorsa bir insan,bu şarkıda da ağlar sanırım.(bkz: ben)
