[Ice Cube] Why the fuck you wanna murrr-dah me? Your punk ass never heard of me I never did nuttin to your family Still you wanna kill a young nigga randomly You wanna take the life God handed to me Send it back to him cause you ain't a fan of me Scary bitch with a gun that ain't a man to me That's a animal, a fuckin cannibal I'm Geronimo and Hannibal, with international gangster pull, I'm a bull in Barcelona with a Corona, youse a fake-ass nigga Where's your owner? I'm a real live man You a persona, now I'm a goner Call my momma, and the coroner Mr. Gun Man, your plan is workin Cause niggaz is dyin, and mommas is hurtin
[Chorus - sung] Why you wanna murder me? You never ever heard of me You don't know who I am, I could be part of your family tree Now - sent by G-O-D, to save the world, you & me You never know who you facin, who you chasin, the life you wastin
[Ice Cube] I was made by the one and only G-O-D To take my life, to the T-O-P Now here comes a motherfuckin D-O-G who ain't happy 'til a nigga is R.I.P. Tryin to be somethin he saw on BET Either T.I.P., or B.I.G. I don't give a fuck what you saw on TV but a one-eight-seven don't make an O.G. I'm an O.G., never had to fake it God gave me this, how you gon' take it? What'chu gon' tell 'em, when you get to heaven and he asks you why did you send back his present? Who the fuck are you~? You motherfuckin peasant! Even got the nerve to ask the man for a blessing Send his ass to Hades with his big Mercedes Nigga hell on earth is bein stuck in the 80's
[Ice Cube] Before you shoot me man think about it Let's go have a drink about it Before you make a stink about it Man let's talk about it maybe we can walk up out it But just don't be a coward And take my life, cause you got the power of the white man's gunpowder Cause you might face a gun tower And time never run out They take the fun out, 'til your life run out So don't pull the gun out If you ever want a house just like Run's house It's better than the big house Let's go find some women we can dig out Find a place we can pig out Party all night 'til the owner say get out
[Ice Cube] Dedicated to all the niggaz That's dead and don't know why Who wanna look at the nigga who shot 'em And ask these questions Why me homie, why me?
