Rufai Oladimeji
Lagos State University
English
100Level, Nigeria.
A boy is born in hard time Mississippi
Surrounded by four walls that ain't so pretty
His parents give him love and affection
To keep him strong moving in the right
direction
Living just enough, just enough for the city...ee
ha!
His father works some days for fourteen hours
And you can bet he barely makes a dollar
His mother goes to scrub the floor for many
And you'd best believe she hardly gets a penny
Living just enough, just enough for the
city...yeah
His sister's black but she is sho 'nuff pretty
Her skirt is short but Lord her legs are sturdy
To walk to school she's got to get up early
Her clothes are old but never are they dirty
Living just enough, just enough for the
city...um hum
Her brother's smart he's got more sense than
many
His patience's long but soon he won't have any
To find a job is like a haystack needle
Cause where he lives they don't use colored
people
Living just enough, just enough for the city...
Living just enough...
For the city...ooh,ooh
[repeat several times]
His hair is long, his feet are hard and gritty
He spends his life walking the streets of New
York City
He's almost dead from breathing in air
pollution
He tried to vote but to him there's no solution
Living just enough, just enough for the
city...yeah, yeah, yeah!
I hope you hear inside my voice of sorrow
And that it motivates you to make a better
tomorrow
This place is cruel no where could be much
colder
If we don't change the world will soon be over
Living just enough, just enough for the city!!!!
La, la, la, la, la, la,
Da Ba Da Da Da Da Da Da
Da Da Da Da Da Da
Da Ba Da Da Da Da Da Da Da
[Repeat to end]
