When I was a child I used to wonder
How Santa put my toys under the tree
I said, momma can you tell me how this can be?
When there ain't no chimneys in the projects
(Ain't no chimneys in the projects) Not in the ghetto
Not in the projects
(Ain't no chimneys in the projects) no

Momma sat me down and said baby
Santa Claus does magic things
As soon as you're asleep a chimney will appear
And in the morning you will see all he brings
Don't you worry that their ain't no chimneys in the projects
(Ain't no chimneys in the projects) Not in the ghetto
Not in the projects
(Ain't no chimneys in the projects) no

Now I'm all grown and I see
It wasn't Santa who got that magic done
But momma now I know, you were the one
There ain't no chimneys (ain't no chmineys), ho ho ho, no, no , no in the projects
Not in the ghetto
Ain't no chimneys in the projects
Momma was the one
It was momma momma momma
