When I was a young boy Growing up in the ghetto Hanging out on corners Singin' with the fellas Lookin' for the cute chicks Trying to find a bit of fun Looking for some trouble Or anyone who'll give me some I was young and crazy In the ghetto Didn't know what my life would be In the ghetto I was dumb and oh so lazy In the ghetto Something had a spell on me In the ghetto You wanna know what I'm talkin' bout? Talkin' 'bout ghetto life Ghetto life You wanna know what I'm singin' 'bout? Talkin' 'bout ghetto life Ghetto life When I was a young man Kind of free and fancy Met this little cute girl She said her name was Nancy She had pigtails to her shoulders She couldn't have been much older She taught me what I had to know To make a girl not want to go She was very kinky In the ghetto She laid her pigtails down on me In the ghetto And I was feeling oh so sneaky In the ghetto I had to see what love could be In the ghetto I knew it all along That my game was strong But I was wrong that time I knew I had to pray And give myself away Did you think I was man enough? Yeah Did you think I was smart enough?
