Little ghetto boy
Playing in the ghetto street
What you going to do when you grow up
And have to face responsibility
Will you spend your days and nights
In the pool room
Will you sell caps of madness
To the neighborhood
Little ghetto boy

You already know how proud life can be
'Cause you've seen so much pain and misery
Little ghetto boy
Your daddy was blown away
He robbed that grocery store
Don't you know that was a sad, sad old day
All your young life
You've seen such misery and pain
The world is a cruel place to live
And it ain't going to change
You're so young
You've got so far to go on
And don't think you'll reach your goal
Young man,
Little ghetto boy, Look at you
When, when, when you become a man
You can make things change, yeah
Hey, hey, if you just take the stand
You got to beleive it yourself in all you do
You've got to fight to make it better
Then you will see how others will start
Beleiving to
Then, my son, things will start to get better
Yeaaaaah
(Everything has got to get better)
(Everything has got to get better)
I said everything
Everything has got to get better, yeah, yeah
I said I beleive that the day,
yeah yeah yeah yeah
I said everything

It's got to get better
I said I'm depending on you
Little brother
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
