They call me
White devil, black Jesus
Heaven closes, hell freezes
Ego's trippin'
Scripts keep flippin'
Bloods keep bloodin'
Crips keep crippin'
Time keeps slippin'
And I keep fallin'
And I can't see but I hear them callin'
Ballers ballin'
Players playin'
Haters fightin'
Righteous praying
Dawn breaking
Manhattan keeps making
Brooklyn keeps takin'
Shook ones keeps shakin'
No time for fakin'
Y' know w' I mean
I ain't choppin' no pies
Just risin' like cream
If you're digging the scene
If you feelin' the vibes
Throw your hands in the air
Scream out you're alive
Singin' na na nana na na
Singin' na na nana na na
(Repeat)

They call me
Black Jesus, white Moses
Heaven freezes, hell closes
B-Boy poses, punk rock chicks
The kids are all right but I need my fix
If you're diggin' the mix
If you're feelin' the drugs
If you're keepin' it real
If you're livin' like thugs
I spit kisses and hugs like. 45 slugs
Come back on the one and kiss my love gun
Got a look that will kill
A voice that will carry
Half a dozen women that I think I wanna marry
Trouble on my mind, I'm refusin' to lose
Still I've gotta find me someone to abuse
So won't you run spread the news
Help say the word
And jump the fuck back and jus' act like you heard

They call me
White devil, black Jesus
Heaven closes, hell freezes
Black Jesus, white Moses
Heaven freezes, hell closes
Sing na na nana na na
Singin' na na nana na na
(Repeat)

Singin' (Wah, wah wah wah wah,
Shoo be doo wah, wah wah wah wah)

They call me
White sinner
Black martyr
Live wire
Fire starter
Jungle brother
Redneck cracker
Freak of nature
New world slacker
S** junkie lookin' for a dealer
You can play the leper girl and I can play the healer
Shit is only getting realer baby haven't you heard that the
Bird, bird, bird, yes the bird is the word

They go one for the trouble
Two for the time
Three for my homies
And four for the dimes
Singin' lemons to the lime
Till the break of dawn
Excuse me ("Six minutes")
Everlast you're on
And they go on and on
Like a rolling stone
Baby anywhere I lay my hat is my home

They call me
White devil, black Jesus
Heaven closes, hell freezes
Black Jesus, white Moses
Heaven freezes, hell closes
Sing na na nana na na
Singin' na na nana na na
(Repeat)
