ghetto child lyrics – joe

all the ghettos around the world
dig this, ghetto fabulous joe
shaggy
all the children sing

i? m a ghetto child
i? m a ghetto child
(check it, out)

there? s a world out there that i wanna see
there? s a man that i? m destined to be
i won? t be stopped by the ghetto streets
i believe inside that i can? t be beat

this life could be a ball and chain
if you let yourself get caught in the game
i had some friends who sold drugs for dough
but i don? t intend to go down that road

just because i? m a ghetto child
i won? t live down to your expectations
just believe that a ghetto child
can rise in the highest celebration

know that i am a ghetto child
but i can see the best in me, can you
i? m a ghetto child
all the ghettos around the world, dig this

one day i? m gonna change the world
make a better place for every boy and girl
everyone in need, homeless families
have a place to sleep and food to eat

i? ll take every gun off the streets
so another tear won? t be shed in grief
and every thug in every hood
i will make? em change from bad to good

i believe that it can be done
gotta start somewhere and i? m that one
all the children sing
(yeah, yeah)
all the children sing
(yeah, yeah)

just because i? m a ghetto child
i won? t live down to your expectations
just believe that a ghetto child
can rise in the highest celebration

know that i am a ghetto child
but i can see the best in me, can you
i? m a ghetto child
(ooh, yeah, ooh)

hey, yo?, look at me in a different light
spare me all about those stereotypes
ain? t no madness that? ll bring me down
gonna take this life and turn it around

that’s right, the sky? s the limit, i won? t be denied
ain? t no stoppin? me, i? m a ghetto child
and at the end when it? s said and done
we will all be singin? this ghetto song

i believe that it can be done
gotta start somewhere and i? m that one
all the children sing
(yeah, yeah)
all the children sing
(yeah, yeah)

just because i? m a ghetto child
i won? t live down to your expectations
just believe that a ghetto child
can rise in the highest celebration

know that i am a ghetto child
but i can see the best in me, can you
i? m a ghetto child
(let? s go to church now)

just because i? m a ghetto child
i won? t live down to your expectations
(take me to church now)
just believe that a ghetto child
can rise in the highest celebration

know that i am a ghetto child
but i can see the best in me, can you
i? m a ghetto child
(hey, ghetto child, oh)

just because i? m a ghetto child
i won? t live down to your expectations
(sing a song for me)
just believe that a ghetto child
(sing a song for me)
can rise in the highest celebration
(everybody sing it now, yeah)

know that i am a ghetto child
but i can see the best in me, can you
i? m a ghetto child
(so i can see the best in me, can you)

it? s not where you? re from, it? s where you? re gonna be
it? s not where you? re from, it? s where you? re gonna be
