  • You know I love my baby
    My baby loves me
    My day, it gets so heavy
    I need a little company
    It's quarter to 11; it's time to make some ghetto heaven...

    Ghetto heaven
    I need a little ghetto heaven...

    Nana likes brandy, especially peach
    She keeps it by the radio
    And listens to the Reverend preach
    It's 10:07, and time to get some ghetto heaven...

    Ghetto heaven
    It's time to get some ghetto heaven
    Ghetto heaven
    She needs a little ghetto heaven...

    Baby, baby, baby
    All I need in this world is you
    And when you're gone
    Baby, baby, baby
    Your touch, your kiss always gets me through

    Sister needs her sugar
    To get her through the day
    She doesn't have the money
    But always got a way to pay
    It's 2:07; it's time to sell some ghetto heaven...

    Ghetto heaven
    It's time to sell some ghetto heaven
    Ghetto heaven
    She needs a little ghetto heaven...

    You know I love my baby
    My baby loves me
    My day, it gets so heavy
    I need a little company
    It's quarter to 11; I need a little ghetto heaven...
    Ghetto heaven
    My baby needs some ghetto heaven
    Ghetto heaven
    I need a little ghetto heaven
    Ghetto heaven
