木屋區 / In The Ghetto

許冠傑 - 木屋區
作曲: Scott Davis
填詞: 許冠傑

滿天風雨,貧窮木屋區某一角裏,
家中有個蘇蝦仔剛剛已誕生,母親不興奮,
孩兒父親已棄妻遠去,家中已七口多了他怎會分?
學校教育那會有?那個去教他怎去做人?
怎可使他守己安份?物慾滿是引誘,如何避免識錯了壞人?
即使天天也教訓,始終都擔心。

迅速光陰過,從前木屋區個蘇蝦仔,
一轉眼已變大人他不聽母親,唔願做窮人,
群埋大檔裏那班賭鬼,一朝到晚四處胡混酒氣滿身,
到了有次老友教他去楂槍打銀行,警鐘一響,警察已到,
一息間槍戰發生。

母親像淚人,人群望向那破衣老婦,
手緊抱他的屍體它鮮血滿身,
這一刻出殯,同時木屋區某一角裏,
家中有個蘇蝦仔他宣佈誕生。

Elvis Presley - In The Ghetto

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
it's another hungry mouth to feed
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

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

Then one night in desperation
a 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

As her young man dies,
on a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
another little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
