    {*DJ Premier scratches children laughing and yelling*}

    [Chorus: Guru]
    Riot act, this is where we really prepare
    Riot act, out here we show no fear
    RIOT ACT, time to protect our communities
    Riot act, real criminals get immunity
    RIOT ACT, eye for an eye - so yo who want it?
    RIOT ACT, rushin all you cowards who fronted
    Riot act, let's bring the power to the people
    RIOT ACT, no justice then we gotta come see you

    [Verse One: Guru]
    Just like a thunderous gun clap, you wonder who done that
    Put you under with one rap, me and the brothers have come back
    We'll lash you for tryin that, we know you been lyin cat
    So now you be lyin flat, we'll read you the riot act
    Whassup you little fuck, get your life right
    Cause there's too much goin in the world, and shit ain't quite right
    See you're just addin to the problem
    Young gun, high-strung, ready to trey-eight revolve 'em
    Knot nearly in your waist, you step up in the place
    Catch one off guard, he lookin silly in the face
    But hear they come with the M-16's
    They got teargas, helmets and clubs - knahmean?
    It's martial law in these streets
    It's like Afghanistan man, it's gettin raw in the streets
    Still you demand your rights, I understand your plight
    But do the knowledge if you plan to fight


    [Verse Two: Guru]
    So realize what it is to be oppressed and afflicted
    Subjected to sick shit, knowin others live different
    FUCK THAT, the streets about to blow again
    They forgot, so we gotta let 'em know again
    Huh, we'll blast you for tryin that, we know you been lyin cat
    So now you be lyin flat, we'll read you the riot act
    Soldiers, let's show these cowards what's up
    The hood ain't goin for it, let's get ours, that's what's up
    Be sure to keep a balance to your fight
    And do the math, figure how to use your talents in a fight
    Ain't nuttin worse than a rebel without a cause
    Ain't nuttin worse than a people without laws
    200 million square miles under attack
    Reperations for us blacks, hell yeah, they need to come with that
    Who's gonna take the weight, and erase the hate
    All I know is when we come through, better make some space


    [Verse Three: Guru]
    A lot of people ain't happy you can tell by their ways
    It's growin tense okay, I can smell it today
    Tenement buildings house the next killers
    While rich diplomats, are purchasin their next villas
    But for the scrilla and power, uhh
    They'll send some killers to their hood, that are iller than ours
    Still niggaz settle beef, with the metal piece
    And every block stays hot, like the devil's feet
    Incarceration of the mind, police brutality and poverty
    These are realities of mankind
    And we can't win nigga, if we keep shuckin and jivin
    In a minute, they gon' have us duckin and divin
    They got bullets for us {*automatic fire*} yeah, uh-huh
    They got jail cells and graveyards, they the bullies, not us
    We'll blast you for tryin that, we know you been lyin cat
    So now you be lyin flat, cause this is the riot act
