"Up early in the morning, dressed in black
Don't ask why? 'Cause I'm down in a suit and tie
They killed a homie that I went to school with (damn!)
I tell ya life ain't s--t to fool with
I still hear the screams of his mother
While my nigga laid dead in the gutter (s--t!)
And it's getting to my temple
Why is that the only time black folks get to ride in a limo?
It make me so mad I want to get my sawed off
And have some bodies hauled off
But no, I pay my respects and I'm through
Hug my crew -- and maybe shed a tear or two"
