The song is about the story of a young boy who grows up in the ghetto. The boy is involved in stealing, getting into fights and is eventually shot and killed.
"... and as her young man dies. On a cold and grey Chicago morn and another little baby child is born in the ghetto. And his momma cries."
In the cartoon South Park, Eric Cartman sings an excerpt of the song (in the episode Chicken Pox) whilst walking through Kenny's neighborhood on "the wrong side of the tracks." See below.
