Hush little shorty, don't you cry
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
When things get rough let me dry your eyes
Give you the strength, hold your head up high

When this cold world never do you right
I'll hold you down through the darkest nights
So rest your head, let me ease your mind
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby

Where shall I begin to teach you
What could take a lifetime to learn?
Nuff lies will be told, with each day
The truth will unfold

Picture if you can, a mountain so high
That you can't see the top
An ocean so wide
You can see where it meets the sky

Well, that's how far you're gonna have to go
Hold on tight shorty, don't let go
Those rains will fall and those winds will blow
Out in these streets can be so cold

Hush little shorty, don't you cry
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
When things get rough let me dry your eyes
Give you the strength, hold your head up high

When this cold world never do you right
I'll hold you down through the darkest nights
So rest your head, let me ease your mind
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby

I'm looking at you, a picture of innocence framed within trust
Each river you cross filled with the unknown not so treacherous
All envy and greed will rip you apart and leave you to bleed
And incessantly cut you down with no trace of mercy

Nuff back stabbers and informers
Hate and disease, so let me warn ya
Sharks in the ocean will raise their teeth
Let's all run fast when you see

Hush little shorty, don't you cry
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
When things get rough let me dry your eyes
Give you the strength, hold your head up high

When this cold world never do you right
I'll hold you down through the darkest nights
So rest your head, let me ease your mind
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby

Ooh, dry your eyes, don't you cry, not tonight
If you just try you will find your sunrise

Hush little shorty, don't you cry
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
When things get rough let me dry your eyes
Give you the strength, hold your head up high

When this cold world never do you right
I'll hold you down through the darkest nights
So rest your head, let me ease your mind
I'll sing you a ghetto lullaby
