One eye peering through the blinds
Scanning left right left
Situations fill your mind
Larceny and theft

She lives in the city now
Walks on concrete streets
Little girl, look up, around
Raise your head, pick up your feet

Houses, buildings, all is new
Take a different route today
Strangers walk beside you
Don’t let them learn your way

Lift your eyes, little girl
Meet it face to face
See the shining, brave new world
You belong here in this place

Lock your door and don’t forget
Remember to be smart
You are safe when not afraid
Do not lose your heart
