one, two, three
look where i be
in the ghetto hood
with drugs and booze
nothing to do
but gangs and shoot
where nobody cares what you do
to be in the family
they gotta beat you
and you dont betray them
or they kill you.
 
this be my life...
everydays the same
from place to place
run from the police
with drivebys and rage
dying and pain
constant fights and chains
protect our street names
i be lucky...
if i live till eighteen.
 
A,B,C
no school for me
i b too busy
been in the family business
since i was three
from raids to raves
and nobody knows my name
it all happens so fast
how long will i last
with a gun in my pants
a vow in my hands
guilt on my chest
and a knife in my sleeve
this life in the ghetto
got a hold on me.
 
this be my life...
everydays the same
from place to place
run from the police
with drivebys and rage
dying and pain
constant fights and chains
protect our street names
i be lucky...
if i live till eighteen.
