[Ice Cube]Why the fuck you wanna murrr-dah me?Your punk ass never heard of meI never did nuttin to your familyStill you wanna kill a young nigga randomlyYou wanna take the life God handed to meSend it back to him cause you ain't a fan of meScary bitch with a gun that ain't a man to meThat's a animal, a fuckin cannibalI'm Geronimo and Hannibal, with internationalgangster pull, I'm a bull in Barcelonawith a Corona, youse a fake-ass niggaWhere's your owner? I'm a real live manYou a persona, now I'm a gonerCall my momma, and the coronerMr. Gun Man, your plan is workinCause niggaz is dyin, and mommas is hurtin
[Chorus - sung]Why you wanna murder me? You never ever heard of meYou don't know who I am, I could be part of your family treeNow - sent by G-O-D, to save the world, you & meYou never know who you facin, who you chasin, the life you wastin
[Ice Cube]I was made by the one and only G-O-DTo take my life, to the T-O-PNow here comes a motherfuckin D-O-Gwho ain't happy 'til a nigga is R.I.P.Tryin to be somethin he saw on BETEither T.I.P., or B.I.G.I don't give a fuck what you saw on TVbut a one-eight-seven don't make an O.G.I'm an O.G., never had to fake itGod gave me this, how you gon' take it?What'chu gon' tell 'em, when you get to heavenand 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 blessingSend his ass to Hades with his big MercedesNigga hell on earth is bein stuck in the 80's
[Ice Cube]Before you shoot me man think about itLet's go have a drink about itBefore you make a stink about itMan let's talk about it maybe we can walk up out itBut just don't be a cowardAnd take my life, cause you got the powerof the white man's gunpowderCause you might face a gun towerAnd time never run outThey take the fun out, 'til your life run outSo don't pull the gun outIf you ever want a house just like Run's houseIt's better than the big houseLet's go find some women we can dig outFind a place we can pig outParty all night 'til the owner say get out
[Ice Cube]Dedicated to all the niggazThat's dead and don't know whyWho wanna look at the nigga who shot 'emAnd ask these questionsWhy me homey, why me?
