heron – sex education: ghetto style lyrics – gil scott

“s*x education: ghetto style”

i was doin’ it when i was a colored boy of eight or nine or ten
i had never heard of sigmund freud but h*ll i was doin’ it then
i was doin’ it in my teenaged years when i was running the ghetto streets
now i had never seen me no ink blot test but it still felt good to me
i was doin’ it when i arrived in college searching for my degree
but lord knows a degree wasn’t all i got and that’s the way it’s supposed to be
i hope that when i have kids of my own they really don’t get shook
when i tell them that there are things they’ve got to learn that can’t be found in books.
