We As Americans Lyrics

[Intro]
There’s an intruder
In my house
He cut my phone line (911, emer-)
Can’t dial out (Shit!)
I scream for police
But I doubt
They’re gonna hear me (*gun cock*)
When I shout

*gunshot*

[Verse 1]
A couple of cocktails’ll send me to jail
There’s a couple of cops hot on my trail, but this time
When I get pulled over there’s a Doberman Pinscher
And a pit bull in the seat, these pigs’ll get bit foolin’ with me
Quit foolin’ with me, bitch, you’re gonna see
No pistol in the seat
, why it always
Gotta be an issue when you’re me
in which you’re gonna see
In the long run, I’ma be the wrong one
You wanna harass with this limo-tinted glass
Flashin’ that flashlight on my ass — where was you at
Last night when them assholes ran up on my grass?

Rapper slash actor, kiss the crack of my cracker slash ass
They took away my right to bear arms
What I’m ‘posed to fight with, bare palms?
Yeah, right! They comin’ with bombs, I’m comin’ with flare guns

[Chorus]
We as Americans, we as Americans
Us as a citizen gotta protect ourselves
Look at how shit has been, we better check ourselves
Livin’ up in these streets through worse and through better health
Survivin’ by any means
, we as Americans
Us as a citizen, we are Samaritans
What do we get us in? We better check ourselves
Look at how shit has been, take a look where you live
This is America, and we are Americans

[Verse 2]
I make beaucoup bucks, wearin’ beaucoup vests
Drama hangin’ over my head like a voodoo hex
I coulda been next to fly over the cuckoo’s nest
With you-know-who, with an S tattooed to my chest

But I’ve finessed it, now I got the industry pissy
Ever since me and Dre split it fifty-fifty on 50

It’s funny, we got a buzz spreadin’ quicker
Than makin’ paper airplanes out of a twenty

Fuck money! I don’t rap for dead presidents
I’d rather see the President *daed*
It’s never been said, but I set precedents

In the standards and they can’t stand it
My name shoulda been “Bastard,” the shit shoulda been plastered
On my forehead with a stamp, I shoulda been blasted
I shoulda been had a cap put in my ass
But I’m too swift and fast for that, I’m past it
I’m too old to go and cruise Gratiot — fuck that shit!
I done seen how fast this rap shit
Can turn into some pap-pap shit, that quick, snap click

But this time, they got the fuckin’ automatic
Ain’t no one gon’ test this man — clack, click (*gunshot*)
[Chorus]
We as Americans, us as a citizen
Gotta protect ourselves, look at how shit has been
We better check ourselves, livin’ up in these streets
Through worse and through better health, survivin’ by any means

We as Americans, us as a citizen
We are Samaritans, what do we get us in?
We better check ourselves, look at how shit has been
Take a look where you live, this is America, and we are Americans

[Verse 3]
(Shht!) I got a secret if you can keep it between us
I tuck two ninas under my jeans, either side of my penis
Under my long johns, under my Sean Johns

One run-in with the long arm of the law, I’m long gone
I’ma do five years — no less than that, no questions asked

So it might be a good idea that I stop right here
And quit while I’m ahead, already in the red
Already got a steady infrared meant for my head

A target on my back, bigger problems than that
Bin Laden on my ass, he probably gon’ send a task

I ain’t gon’ even ask, they ain’t gon’ let me pack
They ain’t gon’ give me my semi, but I got my baby back

[Chorus]
We as Americans, us as a citizen
Gotta protect ourselves, look at how shit has been
We better check ourselves, livin’ up in these streets
Through worse and through better health, survivin’ by any means

We as Americans, us as a citizen
We are Samaritans, what do we get us in?
We better check ourselves, look at how shit has been
Take a look where you live, this is America, and we are Americans
