Ghetto Girl

Stay at home, now
That little girl was born on the ghetto side of town
She knows every trick in the book and she cer­tainly gets around
She’s been with many men since she was only ten
She nev­er stay at home, she’s always on the town

Your mamma is won­der­ing where you are
What do you see at night when you’re under the stars

Stay at home
Sis­ter stay at home
Don’t let your mamma down
Don’t be a run around

Stay at home
Sis­ter stay at home
Don’t let your mamma down
Don’t be a run around
Stay at home, now

That little girl was born on the ghetto side of town
She knows every trick in the book and she cer­tainly gets around
She’s been with many men since she was only ten
She nev­er stay at home, she’s always on the town

Your mamma is won­der­ing where you are
What do you see at night when you’re under the stars
Baby keep on run­ning and you won’t get far
You like to travel with all those movie stars
You like a hangin’ in the big long shiny cars

Sis­ter stay at home
Don’t let your mamma down, no no no no
