Must I get a witness for all this misery?
There's no need to, brothers, everybody can see
That it's, one more time in the ghetto
You know, one more time if you please, now?
One more time to the dying man
They say, One more time if you please?
The old lady kicks karate
For just a little walk down the street
The little baby, he knows Kung Fu
He tries it on those he meets
'Cos it's a one more time
You don't need no silicone to calculate poverty
Watch when Watts town burns again
The bus goes to Montgomery
'Cos it's a one more time in the ghetto
One more time if you please
One more time for the dying man
One more time to be free
