Lyrics

Wooh, ooh..... I was the third Brother of five Doing whatever I had To do to survive I'm not saying What I did was all right Trying to break out of the ghetto Was a day to day fight Been down so long Getting up didn't cross my mind But I knew there was A better way of life And I was just trying to find You don't know what you'll do Until you're put under pressure Across 110th Street Is a hell of a tester Across 110th Street Pimps trying to catch A woman that's weak Across 110th Street Pushers won't let The junkie go free Across 110th Street Woman trying to catch A trick on the street Ooh, baby, across 110th Street You can find it all in the street Wooh, ooh..... I got one more thing I'd like to talk To y'all about right now Hey, brother There's a better way out Snorting that coke Shooting that dope Man, you're copping out Take my advice It's either live or die You gotta be strong If you wanna survive The family On the other side of town Will catch hell without A ghetto around

In every city, you'll find The same thing going down Trying to make a capital Of every ghetto town Help me sing it Across 110th Street Pimps trying to catch A woman that's weak Across 110th Street Pushers won't let The junkie go free Oh, oh, across 110th Street A woman trying to catch A trick on the street Ooh, baby, across 110th Street You can find it all in the street Yes, you can Oh, look around you, look around you Look around you, look around you Ah, yeah Woo, ooh.....
