[Verse 1]

Why the fuck you wanna murder me?
Your punk ass never heard of me
I never did nohin to your family
Still you wanna kill a young nigga randomly
You wanna take the life God handed yo me
Send it back to him coz you ain't a fan of me
Scary bitch with a gun that ain't a man to me
That's an animal,
A fucking cannibal
I'm Duranimo(?) and Hannibal
We international Gangsta bull
I'm bull and Barcelona, with a Carona
You a fake ass ni**er, where's ya owner?
I'ma real live man, you a persona
Now I'm a gonner, call ma momma, in the corner
Mister gun man, your plan is working
Coz ni**ers is dying and mommas is hurting

[Chorus]

Why you wanna murder me?
You never ever heard of me
You don't know who I am
I could be part of your family tree
Now
Sent by G.O.D
To say the word you and me (?)
You never know who you facin'
Who ya chasin'
The life you wastin'

[Verse 2]
I was made by the one and only G.O.D
To take my life to the T.O.P
Now here comes a motherf**kin' D.O.G
Who ain't happy til a ni**er is R.I.P
Tryin' to be som'in' you saw on BET
Either T.I.P or B.I.G
I don't give a f**k what you saw on TV
But a 187 don't make a O.G.

I'm a O.G
Never had to fake it
God gave me this, how you goin take it
What you goin tell 'em, when you get to Heaven
When he asks you why did you send back his present.
Who the f**k are you, you motherf**king peasent
Even got the nerve to ask the man for a blessing.
Send his ass to Hades with his big Mercedes
Ni**er, hell on earth is being stuck in the 80's

[Chorus]

Why you wanna murder me?
You never ever heard of me
You don't know who I am
I could be part of your family tree
Now
Sent by G.O.D
To say the word you and me (?)
You never know who you facin'
Who ya chasin'
The life you wastin'

[Verse 3]
Before you shoot me man think about it
Let's go have a drink about it
Before you make a stink about it
Man let's talk about it
Maybe we can walk about it.
But just don't be a coward
And take my life because you got the power
Of the white man's gun powder
Coz you might face a gun tower.
And time never run out,
They take the fun out, til your life run out.
So don't pull your gun out,
If you ever want a house, just like Run's house.
It's better than the big house,
Less four-five some woman we can dig out,
Find a place we can dig out,
Party all night til the owner say "get out:

[Chorus]

Why you wanna murder me?
You never ever heard of me
You don't know who I am
I could be part of your family tree
Now
Sent by G.O.D
To say the word you and me (?)
You never know who you facin'
Who ya chasin'
The life you wastin'

[Outro]
Dedicated to all the ni**ers, that's dead and don't know why.
Who wanna look at the ni**er who shot 'em
And ask these questions.

Why me homie? Why me?
