Guns In The Ghetto

Daddy don’t go out tonight
Just stay home till morning light
Me and mamma 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

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

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

Repeat Chorus

Daddy don’t go out tonight
Please stay home till morning light
Me and mamma 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

Repeat Chorus

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

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

Repeat chorus four times
