In the Ghetto

There are honey bees
    and honey
    in the ghettos
The sweetness will be tasted
    in the middle
Have some faith
    a little

Splash black coffee on the man
Wake him up to his duty

Wipe that ghetto off your face
You look like a disgrace

You will see smiles upon their face
    as they respect
    and not disgrace
The sweetness will be tasted
    in the middle
Have some faith
    a little
