GHETTO OF MY MIND
Rickie Lee Jones


Saving all my money all week long

So I can go out driving with you

Down on Hollywood Boulevard

On friday night, dressed right

I don't take no trouble smoke at the wall

But I still have that leopard-skin hat

That you gave me way back

Before it was cool

And they took it to school


Here in the ghetto

The ghetto of my mind

Y aqui, the ghetto

The ghetto of my mind


Hey we wild it up, wild it up


I like to dance with my rooner

Cuz when we dance I feel like

We are who we've meant to be

He puts his arms around me

I put my arms around him

And I feel satisfied and free

One night I tried my bandanna around his wrists

And we started to sway and it felt so good

And he said " looky here mamma, looky here

I think I better just see you

Safely out of the neighborhood"

That is to say


The ghetto

The ghetto of my mind

Y aqui, the ghetto

The ghetto of my mind


Hey we wild it up, wild it up


Outside my window the noise is all I've got

There are no stars in the sky

Just the sirens and queens

Breaking glass down in the parking lot

That's the world where I live

Sometimes I wonder, oh how can I go on?

But I know that the world you make inside your head

That's the one you see around, that's what I said

And the one you see

Is the one you make


Inside of the ghetto

The ghetto of your mind

Y aqui, the ghetto

The ghetto of my mind


Hey we wild it up, wild it up
