Isaac Hayes

"Out of the Ghetto"

You've come a long way baby
From wealth and food stamp lines
You're moving on up
And leaving poverty behind
You've had a good education
And seen the best of the schools
But when you take a drink
The ghetto comes out of you

[Chorus:]
I took you out of the ghetto
(I took you out of the ghetto)
I took you out of the ghetto
(I took you out of the ghetto)
I took you out of the ghetto
(I took you out of the ghetto)
But I could not get that ghetto out of you
You're a foxy lady
Your mamma had a beautiful child
You're built like a brick house
And that's no lie
When we go to the disco
You drive the fellas wild
When you shake your booty
Ghetto style

[Chorus]
You're a hunk of raw sugar
Got some real sweet hips
Your love, your love, your love
Is like a honey drip
Your roots are in the mean streets
That'll never change
Ghetto mamma
Stay the same

[Chorus]
Ghetto mamma, don't you change
Ghetto mamma, stay the same
[5x]
