The Neighbourhood

in the neighbourhood

In the neighbourhood

it’s not so good

people get hurt nearly every day

And even if you knew

who did it

you could never say

In the neighbourhood

it’s not so good

that’s where the body lay

Where his Mama cried

where others had died

And all the community could do

was pray
