Yo listen I met this girl on Baltic Ave. And you can tell how she steps on boardwalk, She was from Park Place I asked what she was doing on this side of town She said she had some taxes to pay I figure I'd take a chance and advance to go And find out more about Cause there more to know than the way she ways And the way that she wears her clothes, Or the way she plays this game (so cold) She said she came up rough And one income was not enough There'd be nights she'd go to sleep hungry Cause her mom was always short on food and money See people used to joke a lot Tease her bout her clothes not being in style Dressed in dingy skirts and dirty sneakers From the finest second hand down Oriental Ave.
But now look at her She got this game on lock Anything she ever wanted now she got it And I've gotta say And I'm proud to see That someone like her is in central Womanopoly
Once she graduated junior high she started working overtime Scrubbing floors or working on assembly lines Just so she could help her mother out and After college they moved into Marvin Gardens And she got a job working at the city water department To raise enough cash In move into community chest condos on Pennsylvania Ave She fell in love with this dude named ray Who was a small time hustler from St. Charles place
And he was known for always bein' in and out of trouble But the problem was that he was never on her level She argued with her mom about ray's work Til he was sent upstate on the same day that she gave birth But see the baby never made it, it drove her nearly crazy And she couldn't take it
(Listen) see where she came from Many people find it hard just to hang on You often find them in the same place complaining Instead of finding a better way of maintain She could have balled up and cry Wished that she would die And just gave up on tryin' Instead she grind from the bottom Just to make it to the bottom now she's on top and she's flying
