Lyrics
___ `Cause in the ghetto only the strong survive
___ Millionaires, kings and queens go there to do their things
___ I never met her, but I can’t forget her
___ I’ve got a sweeter song, than the birds in the trees
___ The sun is cold, and the new day seems old
___ Sunshine, blue skies, please go away
___ As pretty as you are, you know you could have been a flower
___ I can make it rain, whenever I want it to
___ Now I heard a cryin’ man, is half a man with no sense of pride
___ I hope I get to you before they do, the way I planned it
___ They say give yourself a chance, son, don’t let life pass you by
___ And the band played on
___ Baby, you’re part of every thought I think each day
___ I’ll try my best to get you hooked
