Marlena Shaw – Woman of the Ghetto (Flume’s Jackin House Mix)

[lift off with flume]

I was born and raised in a ghetto
I’m a woman, of the ghetto
Won’t you listen, won’t you listen to me, legislator?

How do you raise your kids in a ghetto?
How do you raise your kids in a ghetto?
Do you feed one child and starve another?
Won’t you tell me, legislator?

Enthralled through
I know that my eyes ain’t blue
But you see I’m a woman
Of the ghetto

I’m proud, free,
Black, that is me
But I’m a woman of the ghetto

How does your heart feel late at night?
How does your heart feel late at night?
Does it beat with shame, or does it beat with pride?
Won’t you tell me, legislator?
