Gotham City - Remix

This song is by R. Kelly.

Gotham City for the ghetto, ghetto
Gotham City for the ghetto, ghetto

Uh yo yo
Everybody's talking about the good old days
Everybody's talking about the good old days
Huh I remember when me and my brothers
We used to sit up on the porch in the summertime
And just talk about

Just making it you know what I'm saying being successful
Following up our dreams you know and I
I believe that's every kids dream
You know what I'm saying to rise and be somebody
But damn sometimes we just get caught up

I ain't got no money and I ain't got no friends
Looks like my world is coming to an end
No food on the table, no clothes on my back
No shoes on my feet and I just bearly got a used Cadillac

Now ain't that ghetto for ya
But somehow it's gotta change yeah
Ghetto for ya, so I took this remix
And rearranged Gotham City

City of love
A city of peace for everyone of us
'Cause we all need it, can't live without it
Gotham City for the ghetto yeah

Gotham City for the ghetto, that's what I'm talking 'bout
Ghetto fabulous, to a nigga health be hazardous
If you wanna test raffiness for the respect
S T R I N G S yes

Fuck the rest give me the best
Why should I have to settle for less
When I could push the V-12's with finesse
And all that mess

If you try to hold me back
Would I keep on struggling till I hit the sky
Even if you wanted to you can't deny
Gotta feed baby girl who would die

We keep talking about escalating
Well who's gonna go first
Guess I'll be the one to step up
If you don't follow me it would be the worst

Every time something goes down
Somebody's crying ghetto tears
Hope I'm not raining on your parade
But this is not what keeping it really is

Now ain't that ghetto for ya
But somehow it's gotta change yeah
Ghetto for ya, so I took this remix
And rearranged a Gotham City

City of love
A city of peace for everyone of us
'Cause we all need it, can't live without it
Gotham City for the ghetto yeah

Check it out
Now motherfucka wanna act surprised
'Cause you're afraid to change scared to rise
That's why you ass get left behind

Nigga got a sight, nigga got a mind
'Cause ain't nobody gonna stop the dream
Talk that shit, block my cream
Negativity you gotta let go
Heaven gotta see for the ghetto

We all need hey, hey, hey
Gotham City for the ghetto yeah
Calling on Heaven
Send your love down to the ghetto yeah

Talking about a land where oh yeah
Where there will be no more crying
No more crying now, oh yeah
A place where we can all just get along yeah
And children will sing the ghetto love songs

In a land where, city of love
In a land where, for every one of us
