Hush little shorty don't you cry
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
When things get rough, let me dry your eyes
Give you the strength, hold your head up high

When this cold world never do you right
I'll hold you down in the darkest nights
Let me ease your mind
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby

Where shall I begin to teach you
What could take a lifetime to learn
No lies will be told, with each day
The truth will unfold

Picture if you can, a mountain so high
That you can't see the top
An ocean so wide, you can see where it meets the sky

Well that's how far you're gonna have to go
Hold on tight shorty don't let go
Those rain will fall and those winds will blow
Out in those streets it can be so cold

Hush little shorty don't you cry
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
When things get rough, let me dry your eyes
Give you the strength, hold your head up high

When this cold world never do you right
I'll hold you down in the darkest nights
Let me ease your mind
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby

I'm looking at you
A picture of innocence framed within trust
Each river you cross
Filled with the unknown not so treasureous

All envy and greed
Will rip you apart and leave you to bleed
An incessantly cut you up with no trace of mercy
No backstabbers and informers

Hate's a disease so let me warn ya
Sharks in the ocean will raise their teeth
Lets all run fast when you see

Hush little shorty don't you cry
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
When things get rough, let me dry your eyes
Give you the strength, hold your head up high
When this cold world never do you right
I'll hold you down in the darkest nights
Let me ease your mind
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby

Ooh
Dry your eyes don't you cry
Not tonight
If you just try you will find your sunrise

Hush little shorty don't you cry
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
When things get rough, let me dry your eyes
Give you the strength, hold your head up high

When this cold world never do you right
I'll hold you down in the darkest nights
Let me ease your mind
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
