Lyrics

When I was seventeen I ran away from home And from everything I had ever known

I was sick and tired Living in a town Filled with narrow minds And hate They used to laugh at me The children called me names I would ran and hide Feelin' so ashamed Just for being born I was just a boy Punished for a crime That was not mine Life ain't so easy When you're a ghetto child Oh baby, life ain't so easy When you're a ghetto child No one tried to understand Papa did the best a man could do A child reality Is paid for by his faults Fancy fairy tales Are born and sold by those Who can well afford Time to make believe Childhood dreams can still come true Uh, huh- huh- huh So I've been wandering Traveling all around Guess it ain't my style To live in just one town Still I'll never know Why a child is blamed Ridiculed and shamed We're all the same Life ain't so easy When you're a ghetto child I'm a witness that life ain't so easy When you're a ghetto child Yeah Ooooh, ooooh, yeh Life ain't so easy When you're a ghetto child child Life ain't so easy Yeh...hey, hey! When you're a ghetto child Life can be rough Life ain't so easy The going gets tough When you're a ghetto child Yeh, but remember Oh baby, life ain't so easy Things gotta change When you're a ghetto child Things gotta change, gotta Change, yeh, yeh! Life ain't so easy When you're a ghetto child Whoa oh oh whoa...I'm a ghetto boy
