"Guns In The Ghetto" as written by Michael Virtue, Ali Campbell, Jim Brown, Terrence Wilson, Brian Travers, Earl Falconer, Norman Hassan and Robin Campbell....
Daddy don't go out tonight
Just stay home till morning light
Me and mama don't feel right
Please hold us tight
Daddy why did you go to work
When you know just how much we love you so
Please come back tomorrow

[Chorus]
They're giving out guns in the ghetto
They're saying they will set you free
One day I'll have children of my own
But I'm afraid they won't have me

Mama, is Daddy home
Why are you crying all alone
Grandma's tears have turned to stone
And I'm all alone

Mama isn't daddy back
I'm getting scared and that's a fact
Why are we all dressed like that
All in black

[Chorus]

Daddy don't go out tonight
Please stay home till morning light
Me and mama don't feel right
Please hold us tight

Daddy why did you go to work
When you know just how much we love you so
Please come back tomorrow

[Chorus]

Mama, is Daddy home
Why are you crying all alone
Grandma's tears have turned to stone
And I'm chilled to the bone

Mama isn't daddy back
I'm getting scared and that's a fact
Why are we all dressed like that
All in black

[Chorus: x4]

    General CommentGood song, but rather sad. Lyrics trying to give us a little hint of what goes on in most 3rd world countries.
