In The Christmas Groove
Bitter days, december nights
City haze, apartment lights
In the ghetto
In the ghetto
Black Christmas

In the night a siren wails
They're still fillin' up the jails
In the ghetto
In the ghetto
Black Christmas

People don't dream of a Christmas that's white
That tree in sight
We have a dream, we dream every night
Black is just as beautiful as white!

Lookin' for that moment when
There's peace on earth, good will to men
In the ghetto
In the ghetto
Black Christmas

Oh, in the ghetto
In the ghetto
Black Christmas

Oh, people don't dream of a Christmas that's white
That tree in sight
We have a dream, we dream every night
Black is just as beautiful as white!

Lookin' for that moment when
There's peace on earth, good will to men
In the ghetto
Black Christmas
Black Christmas
Black Christmas
In the ghetto
Black Christmas
Black Christmas
One of these days...
