"Attention all ***** rows and ***** hoes
Nobs injecting ourselves to become property on the stock

Penitentiary I hear you calling me
Penitentiary I hear you calling me
As the world turns it burns while it's spinning
I can't wait till the day everything in the hood is straight
Until then, the pen is unfair
I lets my goddamn hair grow (ma)
On Capital Hill, they them passed a bill
The judge gave me a 'L'
I wait and cry in my cell
Speaker at our house
*****es in the south showin' *** (mm)
We blast in the west for example
Yo' babies see me kill a fool on TV (Wilson!)

Penitentiary, I hear you calling me
Thinkin' of illegal ways to get paid

South-central L.A.
And South-central L.A.

And you only give a **** about rucks
**** the ozone layer, ***** I'm a player (*****)
I get sex when I shows flex (Boom!)
Which hoe is next? (Boom!)
Calling you a hoe 'cause I'm ****ing on the first day (uh)
I swear every other hood is the shadiest (uh)
When the trilateral commission is plottin'?
Some *****s gettin' nuts outa carafel cups (punk)
But won't even think about, sucking Bob Doe (punk)
How can you relate to a project tennant?
Tryina' get a section of this west-side connection
[Chorus: x2]
[Bridge]
[Repeat: x3]
You ain't gotta rot away
