Intro:

And why do we call ourself 'ni***z 4 Life'.
'Cause if we die we still gon' be some dead n****s.

"You don't really think you're gonna get away, do you?"
"We haven't spotted them yet."
"But they're somewhere in the immediate vicinity."

[Mc Ren]
A 100 Miles and Runnin'.
Mc Ren, I hold the gun and
You want me to kill a mutherfucker and it's done in.
Since I'm stereotyped to kill and destruct -
Is one of the main reasons I don't give a f**k.
Chances are usually not good
'Cause I freeze with my hands on a hot hood.
And gettin' jacked by the you-know-who.
When in a black and white the capacity is two.
We're not alone, we're three more brothers, I mean street-brothers.
Now wearin' my dyes, 'cause I'm not stupid, mutherfuckers.
They're out to take our heads for what we said in the past.
Point blank - They can kizz my black azz.
I didn't stutter when I said "Fuck Tha Police".
'Cause it's hard for a n***a to get peace.
Now it's broken and can't be fixed.
'Cause police and little black niggers don't mix so
Now I'm creepin' through the fall.
Runnin' like a team. Well, see, I might have slayed y'all.
So for now pack the gun and
Hold it in the air.
'Cause mc Ren has a 100 Miles of Runnin'...

"Into this news. Four fugitives are on the run."
"FBI sources tell us that the four are headed"
"100 miles to their homebase, Compton."

[Eazy E]
Lend me a mutherfuckin' ear.
So I can tell you why...

[Dr. Dre]
Runnin' with my brothers, headed for the homebase.
With a steady pace on the face that just we raced.
The road ahead goes on and on.
The s**t is gettin' longer than the mutherfuckin' marathon.
Runnin' on but never runnin' out.
Stayin' wired and if I get tired, I can still try out.
Hitchhikin' if that's what it gotta do.
But nobody's pickin' up a n***a Witta Attitude.
Confused...
Yo, but Dre's a n***a with nuthin' to lose.
One of the few who's been accused and abused
Of the crime of poisonin' young minds.
But you don't know s**t til you been in my shoes.
And Dre is back from the C-P-T.
Droppin' some s**t that's D-O-P-E.
So f**k the P-O-L-I-C-E!
And any mutherfucker that disagrees.
Stuck and runnin' hard, hauling a**.
'Cause I'm a n***a known for havin' a notorious past.
My mind was slick - my temper was too quick.
Now the fbi's all over my d**k.

[Eazy E]
Got us tick and runnin' just to find the gun that started the clock.
That's when the E jumped off the startin' block.
A 100 Miles from home and, yo, it's a long stretch.
A little sprintin' mutherfucker that they won't catch.
Yeah, back to Compton again.
Yo, it's either that or the Federal pen.
'Cause n****s been runnin' since beginning of time.
Takin' a minute to tell you what's on my mutherfuckin' mind.
Runnin' like I just don't care.
Compton's 50 miles but, yo, I'mma get there.
Archin' my back and on a straight rough.
Just like Carl Lewis I'm ballin' the f**k out.
>From city to city I'm a menace as I pass by.
Rippin' up s**t just so you can remember I'm
A straight up n***a that's done in, gunnin' and comin'
Straight at yo a**.
A 100 Miles and Runnin'...

Interlude:

This one goes out to the four brothers from Compton.
You're almost there, but the fbi has a little message for you:
"Nowhere to run to, baby. Nowhere to hide."
Good luck brothers.

[Mc Ren]
Runnin' like a n***a I hate to lose.
Show me on the news but I hate to be abused.
I know it was a set-up.
So now I'm gonna get up.
Even if the fbi wants me to shut up.
But I've got 10 000 n****s strong.
They got everybody singin' my "Fuck Tha Police" song.
And while they treat my group like dirt,
Their whole fu***n' family is wearin' our T-shirts.
So I'mma run til I can't run no more.
'Cause it's time for mc Ren to settle the score.
I got a urge to kick down doors.
At my grave like a slave even if the Ren calls.

[Dr. Dre]
Clouds are dark and brothers are hidin'.
D**k-tricklin' at the sunny mutherfucker's are ridin'.
Started with five and, yo, one couldn't take it.
So now there's four 'cause the fifth couldn't make it.
The number's even - now I'm leavin'.
We're never gettin' took by a b***h with a weave in.
Her and the troops are right behind me.
But they're so fu***n' stupid, they'll never find me.

[Eazy E]
One more mile to go through the dark streets.
Runnin' like a mutherfucker on my own two feet.
But you know I never stumble or lag last.
I'm almost home so I better haul a**.
Tearin' up everything in sight.
It's a little crazy mutherfucker dodging the searchlight.
Now that chase, the s**t, is done and
Four mutherfuckers goin' crazy with
A 100 Miles of Runnin'!

Outro:

Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!
Surprise, n****s!
