Bishop – U Know U Ghetto lyrics

[lil kids (Bishop)]
You know you ghetto (don't be ashamed)
You ghetto
You ghetto (don't be ashamed)
You ghetto
You know you ghetto

[Bishop]
You know you ghetto when you got rats and roaches
With the fan in the window, front door wide open
You know you ghetto when you say "Ain't & Finna"
Change the channel with some pliers, got a hanger for a antenna
You know you ghetto eating chicken everyday
With color weave in your hair and you tricking for a pay
Gold teeth in your mouth
Out talking loud
And the car that you drive cost more than your house
You know you ghetto when your job is illegal
Live in the projects with furniture like rich people
You know you ghetto when you cook with lard
Only credit that you got is your food stamp card
You know you ghetto when you own section 8
Hair do's everyday, but you pay your bills late
Understand this song, get your jam on
And yo grandma whip you with whatever she get her hands on

[Chorus:]
[lil kids (Bishop)]
You know you ghetto (look at the way you walk)
You ghetto (c'mon, listen to how you talk)
You ghetto (look at the clothes you wear)
You ghetto (haa, look at that style of hair)
You know you ghetto

[Bishop]
You know you ghetto picking boogers and you flick 'em
And eat with your hands stead of washing 'em, you lick 'em
You don't know your daddy
And your hair nappy
People catch the Holy Ghost in church getting happy
You know you ghetto call the crib your house
Be at funerals screaming, fighting, then fall out
You know you ghetto selling clothes that you stole
And when you go out it's like a fashion show
You know you ghetto with a name like Shaniqua
Pookie, Red, and Peanut putting codes in your beeper
When you hear stuff, helicopter, city bus
Siren, trains, shots, straight out of the ice cream truck

[Chorus:]

[Bishop]
You know you ghetto only shop when there's a sale
Late everywhere you go with an excuse to tell
You know you ghetto when you pee outside
Catch bronchitis, get full and sleep tight
You know you ghetto when y'all stealing cable
Cussing and djin on underground radio
Saying Yo' Mama jokes
Fighting on talk shows
Mattress against the wall
Ain't no frame, it's on the floor
You know you ghetto with dreads, plaits, and braids
Weave, colorful nails, afros, wraps, and waves
You ghetto, wont pay back money that you borrow
And wearing an outfit you gon' return tomorrow
You know you ghetto betting on a number
Using words like "Uhh-huh", "Naw", and "Uhh-uhh"
Stead of "Mom" you say "Ma", stead of "Dad" you say "Da"
You see nickel stores, bar-b-cue stands, and laundromats

[Chorus:]

[Bishop]
You know you ghetto punching ain't playing house right
Your kids bare foot playing outside
Eat food of the ground, say "God, bless the church"
Let your kids drink beer talking bout "It gives 'em worms"
You know you ghetto borrowing your friends clothes
Ran out of water supplies from people next door
You know you ghetto heat the house with the oven
And anybody famous from the hood your cousin
You know you ghetto cussing out your teacer
And when something happen your mama screaming "Lord Jesus!"
When you use street knowledge
Graduate from school and go to jail instead of college
You know you ghetto bar-b-cuein every holiday
Pizza man wont even deliver around your way
Where the gang hang out, cornerstore hang out
Mom's at the gas station begging for some change now

[Chorus:]
