"Here Comes The Neighborhood" as written by Mike Burkett and Eric Scott Melvin....
I've got to get out of
I've got to get out of this hood
I've got to get out of this neighborhood
I've got to get out of it
Got to get out

I've had enough, won't call their bluff
I'm not going to live in fear
Racism lives on both sides so
I'm gonna get the hell out of here

Do you want crack?
Do you need smack on the track?
Do you want grass?
Smoke hash you white trash?

You better watch out
You better watch out
You better watch out

I've got to get out of
I've got to get out of this hood
I've got to get out of this neighborhood
I've got to get out of it
I've got to get out of it

I've got to get out of this neighborhood
I've got to get out of this neighborhood
I've got to get out
I've got to get out

I've had it up to here
I'm not gonna live in fear
They're the ones who are racist
Why can't they just let me be?

Do you want crack?
Do you need smack on the track?
Do you want grass?
Smoke hash you white trash?

You better watch out
You better watch out

I've got to get out of this neighborhood
I've got to get out of this neighborhood
I've got to get out of it
I've got to get out of it

    General CommentWell the title is a take-off on the saying "There goes the neighborhood".
    Sounds like the neighborhood is a bad place and he has to get out, but there's got to be something in there I'm missing.

    General Comment"they're the ones who are racist not me"

    That about sums up the whole song. He lives in a neighborhood where he (the white trash in the song) is a minority. He's saying that the black people are the ones who are being racist.
