In the Ghetto Songtext
von Elvis Presley

In the Ghetto Songtext

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto)

And his mama cries
'Cause if there's one thing that she don't need
It is another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto)

People, don't you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me
Are we too blind to see?
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way


Well, the world turns
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto)

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto)

Then one night in desperation
The young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car
Tries to run, but he don't get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto)


And as her young man dies
(In the ghetto)
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
(In the ghetto)

And his mama cries
(In the ghetto)
(In the ghetto)
(Ah)

Der Text ist aktueller denn je... aber unsere Politiker bauen neue Ghettos und lernen nicht draus

Eigentlich mag ich Elvis nicht aber dieses Lied ist so schön

Elisa H.

Dieses Lied ist so herzergreifend schön.....aber natürlich auch sehr traurig. Ich bin ein Fan von Elvis Presley. Auch, wenn ich erst im September 2014 14 Jahre alt werde. Er hatte und wird immer neben Buddy Holly eine große Rolle in der Geschichte der Musik spielen. "In the ghetto" ist wie gesagt einfach nur ein sehr, sehr schönes Lied.....
