As the snow flies
On a cold and grey Chicago morning
A poor litle baby child is born
In the ghetto (in the ghetto)

And his mama cries
Cuz if there's one thing that she don't need
It's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto (In the ghetto)

Oh people don't you understand
The child needs a helping hand
He'll grow to be an angry young man someday
Take a look at you and me
Are we too blind to see?
Do we simply turn our ears and look the other way?

Well the world turns
And a hungry little boy with the runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows in the ghetto (in the ghetto)

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
He learns how to steal and he learns how to fight in the ghetto (in the ghetto)

Then one night in desperation
The young man breaks away
He buys a gun
Steals a car
Tries to run, but he don't get far and his mama cries

As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
Face down in the street with a gun in his hand in the ghetto (in the ghetto)
And as her young man dies (in the ghetto)

On a cold and grey Chicago morning
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto (in the ghetto)
And his mama cries (in the ghetto)

(In the ghetto)
