The Ills Lyrics

by Mayer Hawthorne

Woo Hoo
A babys born
The fathers gone
Cant live with what hes done
You know now mamas torn
She cant afford
To raise her son

You know the ills of this world they can get you down
You know the ills of this world they can get you down
But then you get back up

Way down in New Orleans
The city screams
Theyve gone black and white
And when the levys broke
Woo hoo the city float
And people lost their lives
You know they needed aid
They hoped and prayed
But it was just too late
And now the familys cried
They know inside
Doesnt have to be that way

You know the ills of this world they can get you down
You know the ills of this world they can get you down
But then you get back up

You know the ills of this world they can get you down
You know the ills of this world they can get you down
But then you get back up
