Featuring Alicia Keys

(Alicia keys)- here's my ghetto story, story (cham)-its a survival story
Been in hell through the fire, (cham)- true ghetto story
Gonna take it higher
Here's my survival story, story (cham)- this is my story
So many reasons to sing them, 'cause(cham)- true ghetto story
Now we got the kingdom

(cham)- i remember those days when hell was my home
When me and mama bed was a big piece of foam
And me never like bathe and my hair never comb
When mama gone a work me go street go roam
I remember when danny dem take me snow cone
And make him little brudda dem kick up jerome
I remember when we visit them with pure big stone
And the boy danny pop out something wit full chrome
I remember when we run, fatta get him knee blown
And me best friend richie got two in him dome
I remember seventh avenue turn in a warzone
And mikey modda a fly him out 'cause she got a loan
But, mikey go to foreign and go turn al capone
Make whole heap a money and say me now ah own
Now a we a lock the city and, that is well known
Yesterday mikey call me up on mi phone

(chorus)-mi say mikey
We get de ting-dem
Dem outta lock now
Me squeeze seven and the whole a dem a duck now(cham)- this is my story
We have whole heap a extra clip 'cause we nuh bruk now greatly (cham)-true ghetto story
Rah rah rah rah
(alicia keys)- we got the kingdom so we have to make way
We take it from the bottom to the top baby (cham)- this is my story
And now the whole community can live greatly (cham)-true ghetto story
Rah rah rah rah

(alicia keys)- i remember those days when we was dead broke
And i could baraly find a, dollar for a token
Hop in the train just to get where im goin
Popos after me and runnin like im smokin
Remember those days when i went to bed hungry
All i ever ate was white rice and honey
Big dreams in my head
Empty in my tummy
Might crack a smile but
Aint nothin funny
I remember playin over needles in the street
Everywhere i go a man wants some part of me
Dirty dirty hookers and hoes on eleventh avenue
Selling bodies for dope
I remember crying saying that will never be me
Gonna make it someday gotta be somebody
Mommy don't worry
Its just you and me
But one day we will get out of this misery

(chorus)-we get de ting-dem
Dem outta luck now
Me squeeze seven and the whole a dem a duck now cham)- this is my story
We have whole heap a extra clip cau we nuh bruk now(cham)- true ghetto story
Rah rah rah rah
(alicia keys)- we got the kingdom so we have to make way
We take it from the bottom to the top baby (cham)- this is my story
And now the whole community can live greatly (cham)- true ghetto story
Rah rah rah rah
(alicia keys)- heres my ghetto story, story
Been in hell through the fire
Gonna take it higher
Heres my survival story, story
So many reasons to sing them, 'cause
Now we got the keys to the kingdom

(cham)- jamaica get screwed through greed an glutton
Politics manipulate and press youths button
But we rich now, so dem can tell man nuttin

And me here say till today but him say he wasn't
Anytime me fly down him a get bout dozen....cause......

Dem outta luck now
Me squeeze seven and the whole a dem a duck now
We have whole heap a extra clip cau we nuh bruk now
Rah rah rah rah

We take it from the bottom to the top baby
And now the whole community can live greatly

(cham)- i remember those days when hell was my home
When me and mama bed was a big piece of foam
And me never like bathe and my hair never comb
When mama gone a work me go street go roam
I remember when danny dem take me snow cone
And make him licka breda dem kick up jerome
I remember ((alicia keys)- i remember) when we visit them with pure big stone
And the boy danny pop out something wit full chrome
I remember ((alicia keys)- i remember) when we run, fatta get him knee blown
And me best friend richie got two in him dome

And mikey modda a fly him out 'cause she got a loan
But, mikey go to foreign and go tun al capone
Make whole heap a money and say me in our own
Now a we a lock the city and, that is well known
Yesterday mikey call me up on mi phone
