I love the way you keep them heels on
Hair ain't yours but it's paid for and it's real long
Show them tattoos when you switch it up
Got your jays on
And you got an ass so fat that I can't help but feel on
And You keep it real when it comes to having sex
Girl you don't ever flex
Long as I fuck you good
You ain't worried bout what's next
That's why I keep you here
You ain't like them other hoes
Cause you the fucking best
Just in case you didn't know

Cause you ain't got
A half a million dollar condo
And you ain't got
A hundred thousand dollar car
But you got a billion dollar body
Trust me I know
You keep it hood no matter where you are

Cause you come from the ghetto
Love em from the ghetto
You're the type of girl I like
That's why I keep you right you off the ghetto
Love em from the ghetto
Ain't afraid to let it show
Baby, gone and let them know
You are the ghetto
Let them know, you from the ghetto
Better let'em know
Girl you are the ghetto
Better let'em know
Better let'em know
You are that G-H-E-TT-O

You hold it down
And you never let them haters
Come around, girl that's why I keep you on speed dial
Just in case some shit get bad
Keep that ratchet in your bag
Got a little cash
Just in case I need you
If they lock me down I know I'd see you
That's without a doubt
I know you understand how it go
But you're down for the ride
That's why I still keep you by my side

Cause you ain't got
A half a million dollar condo
And you ain't got
A hundred thousand dollar car
But you got a billion dollar body
Trust me I know
You keep it hood no matter where you are

Cause you come from the ghetto
Love em from the ghetto
Girl your the type I like
That's why I keep you right you off the ghetto
Love em from the ghe...o
Ain't afraid to let it show
Baby, go on let them know
You are the ghetto
Let them know, you from the ghetto
Better let'em know
Girl you are the ghe..o
Better let'em know
Better let'em know
You are that G-H-E-TT-O

She G-H-E-TT-O
My little buddy, my little hoe
Been fucking with her since I was in high school
She had my heart and secrets too
She was born and raised in the projects
Never listen what other guys said
She been going though shit
I can tell, because her eyes read
Her Heart hurt it been beat up
I wanna Start up but don't mislead ya
Imma hunt like a presidential
You're my own if you don't leave me
She G-H-E-TT-O
I love that shit
Cause you never see her with money
Don't mean she broke
Yeah
Shout down my pimping
Shawty knows how it goes
Shawty play her position
And shawty play her role
Got August in here with me
And I could rap it acapella
I fucked with you lil baby
Even though you from the ghetto

Love em from the ghetto
Your the type of girl I like
That's why I keep you right you off the ghetto
Love em from the ghetto
Ain't afraid to let it show
Baby, go on let them know
You are the ghetto
Let them know, you from the ghetto
Better let'em know
Girl you are the ghetto
Better let'em know
Better let'em know
You are that G-H-E-TT-O
