Self – While The Gangsters Sleep lyrics

Dr. Dre, Wacky D and Sunshine, Ice cube and Easy E
Those are heroes of mine
I think it's time I took a closer look at Compton

Blaze the weed and ride over the hill
Pull the Thomas Guide
Put my hands on the wheel
I think it's time I took a little memento from Compton

I'll steal the bling-bling from the benzos that are parked up on the street
'Cause it's midnight sneakin' through Compton
While all the gangsters sleep
I'll steal the bling-bling from the benzos that are parked up on the street
'Cause it's midnight sneakin through Compton
While all the gangsters sleep

Ozzy Osbourne, I heard he's selling his home
Called an agent for some property to own
Sorry sir, but you're not well known in Beverly (Hills that is)
Used to watch Wheel of Fortune all night
Bob Barker on the Price is Right
I think it's time I finally see the sights of Beverly

I'll steal the bling-bling from the benzos that are parked up on the street
'Cause it's midnight sneakin through Beverly Hills
While the game show hosts all sleep
I'll steal the bling-bling from the benzos that are parked up on the street
'Cause it's midnight sneakin through Beverly Hills
While the game show hosts all sleep

Don't wanna see a b-movie on Vine
The Tar Pits or the Hollywood sign
Spielberg's no friend of mine in Hollywood
Don't give a damn about a Melrose skeez
Sunset Strip, or the Mann's Chinese
Just wanna buy the very best of things in Hollywood

I'll steal the bling-bling from the benzos that are parked up on the street
'Cause it's midnight sneakin through Hollywood
While all the porn chicks sleep
I'll steal the bling-bling from the benzos that are parked up on the street
'Cause it's midnight sneakin through Hollywood
While all the porn chicks sleep
