Lyrics

You know you ghetto (Don't be ashamed) You ghetto You ghetto (Don't be ashamed) You ghetto You know you ghetto You kow you ghetto When you got rats and roaches The fan in the window Front door wide open You know you ghetto When you say I ain't offended Change the channel with some pliers Got a hanger for antennae You know you ghetto Eating chicken every day With color weave in your hair And you tricking for a pay Gold teeth in your mouth Out talking loud And the car that you drive Cost more than your house You know you ghetto When your job is illegal Live in the projects With furniture like rich people

You know you ghetto When you cook with lard Only credit that you got Is your food stamp card You know you ghetto When you own section eight Have dues every week But you pay your bills late Understand this song Get your jam on And, yo, grandma whip you with Whatever she get her hands on [CHORUS] You know you ghetto (Look at the way you walk) You ghetto (come on) (Listen to how you talk) You ghetto (Look at the clothes you wear) You ghetto (Ha, look at that style of hair) You know you ghetto You know you ghetto Picking boogers Then you flick 'em Eat with your hands Instead of washin' 'em You lick 'em You don't know your daddy And your hair nappy People catch the Holy Ghost In church getting happy You know you ghetto Call a crib your house Be at funerals screaming Fighting then fall out You know you ghetto Selling clothes that you stole And when you go out It's like a fashion show You know you ghetto With a name like Shaniqua Pookie, Red and Peanut Putting codes in your beeper When you hear stuff Helicopter, city bus Sirens, train shots And the ice cream truck [repeat CHORUS] You know you ghetto Only shop when there's a sale Late everywhere you go With an excuse to tell You know you ghetto When you pee outside Catch bronchitis Get fooled and sleep tight You know you ghetto When y'all stealing cable Cussing and DJ'ing On underground radio Saying yo mama jokes Fighting on talk shows Mattress against the wall Ain't no frame, it's on the floor You know you ghetto With dreads, doo rags and braids Weaves, colorful nails Afros, raps and waves You ghetto Won't pay back money That you borowed And wearinh an outfit You going to return tomorrow You know you ghetto Betting on a number Use words like uh huh, naw And notice Instead of saying mom you say ma Instead of dad you say da You see licquor stores Barbeques, stands and laundromats [repeat CHORUS] You know you ghetto Punching and playing house right Your kids barefoot, playing outside Eat food off the ground Say God bless the church Let your kids drink beer Talking 'bout it kill worms You know you ghetto Borrowing your friends clothes Bread, water supplies From people next door You know you ghetto Heat the house with the oven And anybody famous from the hood Your cousin You know you ghetto Cussing out your teacher And when something happen Your mama screaming Lordy Jesus You know you ghetto When you use street knowledge Graduate from school and go to jail Instead of college You know you ghetto Barbequeing every holiday Pizza man won't even deliver Around your way Where the gang hang out Corner store hang out Mom's at the gas station Begging for some change now [repeat CHORUS 2x]
