The Lyrics

A girl is born in hard time San Francisco
Bounded by four walls that are clean not dirty
She'd go to work in Union City or here at SCDC
Aunty would go to bingo to wish her good luck

Living quite enough
Quite so rough
in the city

She went to Parkway and also at High School
Her cousin Edgar went their and also our mom
She took volleyball which wasn't so hard for her
But her and mom was so quite good at it

Living good enough
Not hard enough
In the city

Her and mom would always sing R&B songs
To bad their wasn't reggae or Classic rap
They'd sing songs like "Bad Bad Leroy Brown"
But they'd probaly go to nightclubs with Uncle Sila

Living Not so tuff
Not enough
in the city

But Aunty and mom would maybe get good grades
They would never fail math or social studies
But they'd get it by this guy name Tui Fagalilo
But he was the one that would throw rocks at cars

Living quite so good
Not so bad
in the city
