Janelle Monae – Ghetto Woman lyrics

Carry on, ghetto woman
I see you working day and night like no one cares
Carry on, ghetto woman
But even though they make fun of the clothes that you wear
I wish they could, just realize
All you needed was someone to free your mind
Carry on, ghetto woman
Cause even in your darkest hours I can see your eyes
When you cry, don't you know, I cry with you?
When we put each other down [?]

Let love be your guide
You were built to last through any weather
Ooh, ghetto woman, hold on to all your dreams, and all your philosophies, cause your the reason I believe in me for real!

Carry on, ghetto woman
