Guns In The Ghetto
UB40
Album: Guns In The Ghetto

Daddy don't go out tonight.
Just stay home till morning light.
Me and mama don't feel right.
Please hold us tight.

Daddy why did you go to work?
When you know
just how much we love you so.
Please come back tomorrow.

They're giving out guns in the ghetto.
They're saying they will set you free.
One day I'll have children of my own.
But I'm afraid they won't have me.

Mama, is Daddy home?
Why are you crying all alone?
Grandma's tears have turned to stone
and I'm all alone.

Mama isn't daddy back?
I'm getting scared, that's a fact.
Why are we all dressed like that
all, all in black?

They're giving out guns in the ghetto.
They're saying they will set you free.
One day I'll have children of my own.
But I'm afraid they won't have me.

Daddy don't go out tonight.
Please stay home till morning light.
Me and mama don't feel right.
Please hold us tight.

Daddy why did you go to work?
When you know
just how much we love you so.
Please come back tomorrow.

They're giving out guns in the ghetto.
They're saying they will set you free.
One day I'll have children of my own.
But I'm afraid they won't have me.

Mama, is Daddy home?
Why are you crying all alone?
Grandma's tears have turned to stone
and I'm chilled to the bone.

Mama isn't daddy back?
I'm getting scared and that's a fact.
Why are we all dressed like that
all, all in black?

They're giving out guns in the ghetto.
They're saying they will set you free.
One day I'll have children of my own.
But I'm afraid they won't have me.

They're giving out guns in the ghetto.
They're saying they will set you free.
One day I'll have children of my own.
But I'm afraid they won't have me.

They're giving out guns in the ghetto.
They're saying they will set you free.
One day I'll have children of my own.
But I'm afraid they won't have me.

They're giving out guns in the ghetto.
