Well I'm not trying to get in the way
Minding my own, got nothing to say
About nobody, that's right nobody
Don't shake my tree, don't ride on my cage
You and me we're on the same page
Ain't got no trouble, don't make no trouble

Yeah you best let a sleeping dog lie
'Cause soon you'll come to understand why
You gonna get bit right between the eyes

Let me tell you how it all went down
Funky little joint on the edge of town
Called the Punch old Wayne it had too much
Well push come to shove, and my came to blows
Spill some blood and I broke his nose
Yes I had to do it, mama that's all it was to it

Now you best let a sleeping dog lie
'Cause soon you'll come to understand why
And you gonna get bit right between the eyes
Said you best let a sleeping dog lie
Come on yeah

Make no mistake, let there be no doubt
Paint me in the corner, I'll fight my way out
The moral of the story brother this is it
I'll be all over you, like stick on sh*t

And you best let a sleeping dog lie
Soon you gonna understand why
You gonna get bit right between the eyes
If you don't you let a sleeping dog lie

You best let a sleeping dog lie
'Cause soon you'll come to understand why
You gonna get bit right between the eyes
Said you best let a sleeping dog lie
