Could you tell me who released our animal instinct?
Laughin' at us on the avenue
We can't enjoy ourselves
Of each other's wealth
But the Black community is full of envy
While I look up the street I see all the japs grabbin'
Build a store, and sell their goods
You know us po *****s, nappy hair and big lips?
And you expect Uncle Sam to help us out?
To the average bigot, redneck honky
But before we can come up, take a look at US
And all y'all dope-dealers
You got rich when you started slangin' dope
So when can spend our money with the blacks
That's what ya doin' with the money that ya raisin'
For four hundred years, I got four hundred tears- for four hundred peers
That's why I got gang-related rhymes
Us Blacks don't know how ta act
We're messin' up ourselves and blame the white man
Take a look at yourself ya dumb ***** you
No Ice Cube, just Vannilla Ice
But there's no one ta blame, but US
US will always sing the blues
But if ya step on mine ya pushed a button
Just like a beast
I beat my wife and children to a pulp
Got a bad heart condition
Bet my money on the dice and the horses
Go to church but they tease us
They used to call me Negro
No respect and didn't know it
In jail 'cause I can't pay the mother
Now this is just a little summary
To put a mirror to ya face, but trust
