India Arie – Ghetto lyrics

There are places in Havana
That remind me of Savanna
Parts of West Virginia
That might as well be Kenya

Parts of New York City
Parts of Mississippi, parts of Miami
Parts of Tennessee
Look like another world to me

Ghetto, might as well be another country
Hurry oh oh oh, might as well be another country
When you look around
You live in another country too, too, too

To be hungry in la
Is just like starving in Bombay
Homeless in Morocco
Is a shelter in Chicago

Right around the corner
Just down the road
Right before your eyes
Right under your nose, hey

Ghetto, might as well be another country
Hurry oh oh oh, might as well be another country
Look around
You live in another country too, too

Now the dictionary says
That the ghetto is a place
Of minority and poverty
And over population

We live on this earth together
Ain't no separation
When you're looking down from outer space
We're just a human race and the world is a

Ghetto, it's in every place and every country
Hurry oh oh oh, it's in every place and every country
Look around
Do you see your brother when you
Look around?

It's a small world after all
Look around
You live in another country too

Ghetto, Jamaica is a ghetto
Ghetto, Japan is a ghetto
Ghetto, America is a ghetto
Ghetto, Slovakia is a ghetto

Ghetto, South Africa is a ghetto
Ghetto, Brazil is a ghetto
Ghetto, Israel is a ghetto
Ghetto
