As the snow flies
On a cold and grey Chicago morn
A poor
little baby child is born in the ghetto
And his mama
cries
Cause there's one thing that she don't
need
Is another little hungry mouth to feed in the
ghetto
Oh people don't you understand
This child
needs a helping hand
He's gonna grow to be an angry
young man some day
Take a look at you and me
Are we that
blind to see?
Do we simply turn our heads and look the other
way?
And the world turns
And the hungry little boy with
the runny nose
Plays in the streets 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
The young man breaks away
He buys a gun and
steals a car
He tries to run but he don't get
far
And his mama cries
A crowd gathers round an angry
young man
Face down in the street with a gun in his hand in
the ghetto
And as her young man dies
On a cold and grey
Chicago morn
Another little baby child is born in the
ghetto

That track kills me every time. William shatner should re-record it.
