    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Children of the Ghetto

    Runnin' wild and free

    In the concrete jungle

    Filled with misery

    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Theres no inspiration

    To brighten up our day

    None at all, not at all, none at all

    So out of desperation

    I would like to say

    Children of the Ghetto

    Keep your head

    To the sky

    Keep it up, keep it up

    Children of the ghetto

    We're always in the news

    See toughness is our moto

    And bitter blues

    See there's no inspiration

    To brighten up our day

    None at all

    So out of desperation

    I would like to say

    Children of the Ghetto

    Keep your head

    To the sky

    Keep it up, keep it up

    Oh keep it up

    Cornell seranade the people

    [Musical Interlude]

    There's no inspiration

    Ooh ah

    To brighten up our day

    No, no, no, no

    So out of desperation

    I would like to say

    Children of the Ghetto

    Keep your head to the sky

    Keep your head up, keep your head up

    See to me, see to me

    We are all God's Children

    Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la

    Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la

    Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la

    Tra, la, la, la, la, la, la

    (repeat x2)

    Hold on tight

    Everything will be alright

    Children of the Ghetto

    Keep your head
