Verse One: Ice Cube

Straight outta Compton, crazy m**********are named Ice Cube
From the gang called ni***z With Attitudes
When I'm called off, I got a sawed off
Squeeze the trigger, and bodies are hauled off
You too, boy, if ya f**k with me
The police are gonna hafta come and get me
Off yo a**, that's how I'm goin out
For the punk motherfuckers that's showin out
Ni***z start to mumble, they wanna rumble
Mix em and cook em in a pot like gumbo
Goin off on a m**********are like that
With a gat that's pointed at yo a**
So give it up smooth
Ain't no tellin when I'm down for a jack move
Here's a murder rap to keep yo dancin
With a crime record like Charles Manson
Ak-47 is the tool
Don't make me act the motherfuckin fool
Me you can go toe to toe, no maybe
I'm knockin ni***z out tha box, daily
Yo weekly, monthly and yearly
Until them dumb motherfuckers see clearly
That I'm down with the capital C-P-T
Boy you can't f**k with me
So when I'm in your neighborhood, you better duck
Coz Ice Cube is crazy as f**k
As I leave, believe I'm stompin
But when I come back, boy, I'm comin straight outta Compton

Chorus:

[City of Compton, City of Compton]

[Eazy E] Yo Ren
[Mc Ren] Whassup?
[Eazy E] Tell em where you from!

Verse Two: mc Ren

Straight outta Compton, another crazy a** n***a
More punks I smoke, yo, my rep gets bigger
I'm a bad m**********are and you know this
But the p***y a** ni***z don't show this
But I don't give a f**k, I'ma make my snaps
If not from the records, from jackin the crops
Just like burglary, the definition is 'jackin'
And when illegally armed it's called 'packin'
Shoot a m**********are in a minute
I find a good piece o' p***y, I go up in it
So if you're at a show in the front row
I'm a call you a b***h or dirty-a** ho
You'll probably get mad like a b***h is supposed to
But that shows me, s***, you're composed to
A crazy muthafucker from tha street
Attitude legit cause I'm tearin up s**t
Mc Ren controls the automatic
For any dumb muthafucker that starts static
Not the right hand cause I'm the hand itself
Every time I pull a ak off the shelf
The security is maximum and that's a law
Are-E-N spells Ren but I'm raw
See, coz I'm the motherfuckin villain
The definition is clear, you're the witness of a killin
That's takin place without a clue
And once you're on the scope, your a** is through
Look, you might take it as a trip
But a n***a like Ren is on a gangsta tip
Straight outta Compton...

Chorus:

[City of Compton, City of Compton]

[Dr. Dre] Eazy is his name and the boy is comin...

Verse Three: Eazy-E

... Straight outta Compton
Is a brotha that'll smother yo' mother
And make ya sister think I love her
Dangerous m**********are raises hell
And if I ever get caught I make bail
See, I don't give a f**k, that's the problem
I see a motherfuckin cop I don't dodge him
But I'm smart, lay low, creep a while
And when I see a punk pass, I smile
To me it's kinda funny, the attitude showin a n***a drivin
But don't know where the f**k he's going, just rollin
Lookin for the one they call Eazy
But here's a flash, they never seize me
Ruthless! Never seen like a shadow in the dark
Except when I unload, see I'll get over the hesitation
And hear the scream of the one who got the last penetration
Give a little gust of wind and I'm jettin
But leave a memory no one'll be forgettin
So what about the b***h who got shot? F**k her!
You think I give a damn about a b***h? I ain't a sucker!
This is the autobiography of the E, and if you ever f**k with me
You'll get taken by a stupid dope brotha who will smother
Word to the m**********are, straight outta Compton

Chorus:

[City of Compton, City of Compton]

[Damn that s**t was dope!]
