originally* appeared as a b-side to cube's "really doe" single Motherfucker

you'd, better break yourself [ice...

cube] My
skin is my sin look, at my complexion Section
8 erection, great Balls
like ru paul and a big fat plank Get
you higher than a spike lee joint See
I'm a chicken hawk and I'm hunting chicken and watermelon It
ain't nothing but hard time bailing Just
got a misdomener Cause
I got a deuce-five and, I'm black as sarafina Get
the hell out somolia we, didn't call y'all I
can't wait till I can kill all y'all Fuck
reggie denton and jimmy (johnny) cochran Damn
I couldn't get close enough to sock him I
plead guilty your honor Cause
I dissed the pope more times than sinead o'connor Huh
huh cool, like, butthead and beavis Truer
than the mack but I'm downer than he is And
that police chief named willie Can
take his motherfucking ass back to philly Dropped
a bomb on a crew named "move" Years
ago here's, a hoe That's
ready to stop me they, think I'm khadafi Rolling
in a six-tre jalopy They
want to give me ten in the pen cause I'm smelling like hen My
skin is my sin My

s-k-i-n is my s-i-n ("burning our black skin") (repeat 2x) [ice

cube] I
get around like tupac just, bought a new glock And
I want what you got So
please give it up so I can live it up Just
like the rich but I still eat grits I
don't know karate But
I can still beat the dog shit out of nazis You
claim you want to put in work Plotting
to blow up a church See
you devils are all the same You'll
gun down a congregation in jesus' name Using
me as a scapegoat well, cracker don't sleep Far
from a goat more, like a black sheep Lamb
of god and, it's odd That
allah is a man that don't need a tan And
you can't stand when I talk like that And
why do black men have to walk like that Cause?
we swing low like a chariot And
now I got harriet all on my dick Cause
my shoe size is much bigger than a motherfucking 10 My
skin is my sin My

s-k-i-n is my s-i-n ("burning our black skin") (repeat 2x) [w

c.].Who's
that janky-ass nigga with last Standing?
like a g pissing on america's flag Dub
c the, nigga from westside Westide
maad circle bailing with a double barrel Cause
uh my, skin is my sin And
all I need is knowledge of self and ammunition is my best friend When
it's time to roll nigga we, ain't calling on jesus I'm
calling mad dog for the 9 millimeters Cause
I give the song with those peckerwoods to the fullest And
a bitch by the name of america's on it The
same bitch that jacked my forefathers And
the indians took my motherfucking religion Place
a holy Bible in my hand but, for what Like?
jim kelly said "you, try to set me up "? shit I'm...
too slick for your lies in disguise When
will you devils open your eyes and realize Like?
pepsi niggas, got a new generation And
we don't want your american education Ain't
no brain washing this way Fuck
america tom, meztger and, kkk And
to the cracker named j b.stoner. Don't
let me catch you on no corners I
see you on tv talking more shit But
just like your punk-ass anscestors you's, a bitch You's
a bitch if I ever saw one Grand
wizard bring your ass on imperial so we can get physical And
watch God show and prove Not
only mentally but physically the black man rules So
run devil run you's, to best start running Because
the niggas are coming oh, the, niggas are coming And
ain't no way you gon' win Cause
I come from a tribe of o g.'s.and my skin is my sin My

s-k-i-n is my s-i-n ("burning our black skin") (repeat 2x)
