Feat. Sean Kingston

Hey yo J.R. this your boy Mann
And let me tell you a story about me and this girl from my hood
Back in the day
Sean Kingston sing it

(Chorus)
She's my ghetto girl (ghetto girl)
She's been living in a ghetto world (ghetto world)
I bet she never met a guy like me (guy like me)
I want to take her on a shopping spree (shopping spree)
'Cause she's my queen (Yup)

[Verse 1]
Our story starts in the heart of the city
We used to play hide-and-seek
At the park come and get me
When you got me you kissed me
It would get me so happy
You were known for having Laffy Taffy
We called you candy(candy)
You had braids like Brandy
Which my momma would braid
Then we'd go in the house and drink your grandmama's Kool-Aid
Remember school days when we caught the bus there
And I thought I was ballin' because I payed your bus fare
On the way home
I'd protect you from danger
Make sure you wasn't kidnapped or harrassed by some strangers
Then I promised you if I made it out the hood
You would be good
Living life like you should

(Chorus)
She's my ghetto girl (ghetto girl)
She's been living in a ghetto world (ghetto world)
I bet she never met a guy like me (guy like me)
I want to take her on a shopping spree (shopping spree)
'Cause she's my queen (Yup)

[Verse 2]
Now look what happened
Mann is rapping and stacking this dough
That boy get it popping
Jerking and cracking fo' sho'
But don't trip
That promise I haven't forgot
As soon as I get time imma go back to my block (do what)
And see my candy girl (yes yes)
My candy girl
Candy girl you are the sweetest thing in a man's world
My ghetto queen
Imma drape you in jewels and bling (bling)
Spend all my green
On everything to fufill your dreams (Fo' Sho')
She sad no Mann baby all I want is you
And being materialistic just ain't what I do
I said what do you expect I'm now a signed artist
She said that don't matter imma love you regardless

She's got me hooked
And she's loooooking so fly-y-y (so fly)
And when she shaaakes it
She maaakes me lose my mi-i-i-nd
I just can't get enough
All because
I'm in love with my ghetto girl (ghetto girl)
She's been living in a ghetto world (ghetto world)
I bet she never met a guy like me (guy like me)
I want to take her on a shopping spree (shopping spree)
'Cause she's my queen (Yup)

She's my ghetto girl (ghetto girl)
She's been living in a ghetto world (ghetto world)
I bet she never met a guy like me (guy like me)
I want to take her on a shopping spree (shopping spree)
'Cause she's my queen (Yup)
