Lyrics: [Verse 1: Coolio] As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left ‘Cause I've been blastin' and laughin' so long That even my momma thinks that my mind is gone But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it Me be treated like a punk, you know that's unheard of You better watch how you talkin' and where you walkin' Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk I really hate to trip, but I gotta loc As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke Fool, I'm the kinda G that little homies wanna be like On my knees in the night, sayin' prayers in the street light [Hook 1: LV] Been spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise Been spending most their lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise We keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise We keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise [Verse 2: Coolio] Look at the situation they got me facin' I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the street So I gotta be down with the hood team Too much television watching, got me chasing dreams I'm a educated fool with money on my mind Got my ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye I'm a loc'd out gangsta, set trippin' banger And my homies are down, so don't arouse my anger Fool, death ain't nothin' but a heart beat away I'm livin' life do or die, what can I say? I'm 23 now, will I live to see 24? The way things is going I don't know [Hook 2: LV] Tell me why are we so blind to see That the ones we hurt are you and me? [Hook 1] Been spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise Been spending most their lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise We keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise We keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise [Verse 3: Coolio] Power and the money, money and the power Minute after minute, hour after hour Everybody's running, but half of them ain't lookin' It's going on in the kitchen, but I don't know what's cookin' They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me If they can't understand it, how can they reach me? I guess they can't, I guess they won't I guess they front; that's why I know my life is out of luck, fool! [Hook 1] Been spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise Been spending most their lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise We keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise We keep spending most our lives Livin' in a gangsta's paradise [Hook 2] Tell me why are we so blind to see That the ones we hurt are you and me? Tell me why are we so blind to see That the ones we hurt are you and me?

4 min 16 sec that has more meaning than how a lot of people are living their lives today. Still relevant. Hip Hop was poetry.

Not one curse word in this song
Jacky Tullier
The scenes are from a movie Dangerous Minds about a teacher working in LA. It's a true story about a former Marine who begins teaching in a "worst" school and challenges both the kids and the powers that be. Both the book and movie are very powerful! And this song -is a heartbreaking summary of the movie & what is still happening in those areas.

I remember hearing this when I was 3 days old. Now I'm 86 and it's still one of my favorites.

Remote God
A pinnacle of 90's popular rap. Strings, thumping funereal beat. That bassline!!! Samples Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise." Incredibly quotable lyrics delivered in a fairly simple rap flow. The storytelling develops from a description of a badass to a young gangster becoming aware of his own mortality, limitations and dangerous lifestyle. Form is a bit more sophisticated than most pop songs: Verse 1 - Hook 1 2x - Verse 2 - Hook 2 - Hook 1 2x - Verse 3 - Chorus/Hook1 2x - Hook 2 2x - Choir Outro Great chorus / hook vocals, supported by a synthy-sounding choir. The chorus gains impact throughout the song as each verse extends the story. At first it seems like a real "paradise," but gains new context especially after the bridge / secondary hook ("Tell me why are we so blind..") sheds light on the real nature of this "paradise." This was the #1-Track of 1995 and the first rap song to be a Billboard #1 of the year.

As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain I take a look at my wife and realize she's very plain But that's just perfect for an Amish like me You know, I shun fancy things like electricity At 4:30 in the morning I'm milkin' cows Jebediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows... fool And I've been milkin' and plowin' so long that Even Ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone I'm a man of the land, I'm into discipline Got a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine Then tonight we're gonna party like it's 1699 We been spending most our lives Living in an Amish paradise I've churned butter once or twice Living in an Amish paradise It's hard work and sacrifice Living in an Amish paradise We sell quilts at discount price Living in an Amish paradise A local boy kicked me in the butt last week I just smiled at him and I turned the other cheek I really don't care, in fact I wish him well 'Cause I'll be laughing my head off when he's burning in hell But I ain't never punched a tourist even if he deserved it An Amish with a 'tude? You know that's unheard of I never wear buttons but I got a cool hat And my homies agree, I really look good in black...fool If you come to visit, you'll be bored to tears We haven't even paid the phone bill in 300 years But we ain't really quaint, so please don't point and stare We're just technologically impaired There's no phone, no lights, no motorcar Not a single luxury Like Robinson Crusoe It's as primitive as can be We been spending most our lives Living in an Amish paradise We're just plain and simple guys Living in an Amish paradise There's no time for sin and vice Living in an Amish paradise We don't fight, we all play nice Living in an Amish paradise Hitchin' up the buggy, churnin' lots of butter Raised a barn on Monday, soon I'll raise another Think you're really righteous? Think you're pure in heart? Well, I know I'm a million times as humble as thou art I'm the pious guy the little Amlettes wanna be like On my knees day and night scorin' points for the afterlife So don't be vain and don't be whiny Or else, my brother, I might have to get medieval on your heinie We been spending most our lives Living in an Amish paradise We're all crazy Mennonites Living in an Amish paradise There's no cops or traffic lights Living in an Amish paradise But you'd probably think it bites Living in an Amish paradise

One of the best songs ever written
Matthew Alexander Lemma
The most powerful lyric of the song is, for me, "On my knees in the night, sayin' prayers in the streetlight" (0:59).
