Intro: Das efx

Yeah! Word is bond!
Das efx in this yaknowhati'msayin
Straight from the sewer, word is bond!
Yeah! Yah! Ah-yeah! We doin this with my n***a
Where my n***a? Ice Cube in the m**********are
Word is bond! (Yeah!)

Verse One: Ice Cube

You better check yo self before you wreck yo self
Cos I'm bad for your health, I come real stealth
Droppin bombs on ya moms, f**k car alarms
Doin foul crime, I'm that n***a wit'cha Alpine
Sold it for a six-o, always let tricks know
And friends know, we got the indo
No I'm not a sucker, sittin in a House of Pain
And no I'm not the butler, I'll cut ya (Uh!)
Headbutt ya, you say you can't touch this
And I wouldn't touch ya, in fact Moth*****k ya
Here to let you know boy, oh boy
I make dough but don't call me Doughboy
This ain't no fuckin motion picture
A guy or b***h-a, I'll get wit'cha
And hit ya, takin that yack to the neck
So you better run a check

Chorus One: Das efx and Ice Cube

[Das] So come on and chickity-check yo self before you wreck yo self
Chickity-check yo self before you wreck yo self
Yeah, come on and check yo self before you wreck yo self
[Ice] Cause shotgun bullets are bad for your health

Hook: Das efx

Mic-mic-microphone check (One, two! Check it!)
*Repeat 2X*

Verse Two: Ice Cube

Tricks wanna step to Cube and then they get played
Cause they b***h may pullin out a switchblade
That's kinda trifle, caise that's a knife-o
Ak-47, assault rifle
Hold the fifty, I'm nifty, pow
I gotta new style, "WATCH OUT NOW!"
I hate motherfuckers claimin that they foldin bank
But steady talkin s**t in the holding tank
First you wanna step to me
Now your a** screamin for the deputy
They send you to Charlie-Baker-Denver row
Now they runnin up in ya slow
You're gone, used to be the Don Juan (Check that s**t out!)
Now your name is just Twan
Switch it, snap it, rollin your eyes and neck
You better run a check

Chorus Two: Das efx and Ice Cube

[Das] So chickity-check yo self before you wreck yo self
Come on and check yo self before you wrickity-wreck yo self
So chickity-check yo self before you wreck yo self
[Ice] Cause big dicks up yo a** is bad for yo health

Hook

Verse Three: Ice Cube

If you're foul, you better run a make on that license plate
You coulda had a V8
Instead of a tre-eight slug to the cranium (Pooooow!)
I got six and I'm aimin em
Will I shoot or keep you guessin
Cause f**k you and that s**t ya stressin
B***h, get off the wood, you're no good
There goes the neighbourhood hooker (s***!)
Go ahead and keep your drawers
Givin up the claps and who needs applause
At a time like this, pop the coochie and ya dead
The b***h is a Miami Hurricane hit
Sprung, ni***z call her 'Lips and Lungs'
Nappy dugout, get the f**k out
Cause women like you gets no respect
B***h, you better run a check

Chorus Three: Das efx and Ice Cube

[Das] So chickity-check yo self before you wreck yo self
So chickity-check yo self before you wreck yo self
Come on and check yo self before you wrickity-wreck yo self
[Ice] Cause b*****s like you is bad for my health

Hook

Chorus Three
