Eminem We As Americans Lyrics    [  Edit Lyrics  ]
[Intro]

*Glass smashing*
*Dog's barking*

There's an intruder
In my house
He cut my phone-line
Can't dial out
I scream for police
But I doubt
They're gonna hear me
when I shout

[Verse 1]

A couple o' cocktails will send me to jail
There's a couple of cops hot on my trail
But this time, when I get pulled over
There's a Doberman pincher and a Pitbull in the seat
These pigs'll get bit fooling with me
Quit fooling with me
Bitch, you're gonna see
No pistol in the seat
Why it always gotta be an issue when you're me
And which you're gonna see in the long run
Im'a be the wrong one
You wanna harass with this limo-tinted glass
Flashin that flashlight on my ass
Where was you at
Last night when them assholes
Ran up on my grass
Rapper slash actor
Kiss the crack of my cracker slashed ass
They took away my right to bare arms
What I'm 'posed to fight wit' bare palms?
Yeah right
They comin' with bombs
I'm comin' with flare guns
We as Americans

[Chorus]

We as a Americans
Us as a Citizen
Gotta protect ourselves
Look at how shit has been
We better check ourselves
Livin up in these streets
Through worse and through better health
Surviving by any means
We as Americans
Us as a citizen
We as Samaritans
What do we get us in
We better check ourselves
Look at how shit has been
Take a look where you live
This is America
And we are Americans

[Verse 2]

I make Buku bucks
Wear Buku vests
Drama hangin over my head like a voodoo hex
I could've been next to fly over the cuckoo's nest
But you know who
With an "S" tattooed to my chest
But I've finessed' it
Now I got the industry pissy
Ever since me and Dre split it 50/50 on 50 it's funny
We got a buzz spreadin' quicker than making paper airplanes out of a 20
Fuck money
I don't rap for dead presidents
I'd rather see the president dead
It's never been said
But I said precedents in the standards
And they can't stand it
My name should've been bastard
The shit should've been plastered
On my forehead with a stamp
I should've been blasted
I should've been had a cap put in my ass
But I'm too swift and fast for that
One bastard
I'm too old to go an' cruise Gratiot
Fuck that shit
I done seen how fast this rap shit
Can turn into some Pap-Pap shit
That quick
Snap CLICK
But this time they got the fuckin Au-to-ma-tic
Aint no one Gon' test this Mon'
CLACK, *click*

[Chorus]

We as a Americans
Us as a Citizen
Gotta protect ourselves
Look at how shit has been
We better check ourselves
Livin up in these streets
Through worse and through better health
Surviving by any means
We as Americans
Us as a citizen
We as Samaritans
What do we get us in
We better check ourselves
Look at how shit has been
Take a look where you live
This is America
And we are Americans

[Verse 3]

(SSHHH)

I got a secret if you can keep it between us
I tucked 2 Nina's under my jeans either side of my penis
Under my Long Johns
Under my Sean Johns
When runnin' with the long arm or the long long gone
Im'a do five years or less than that
No questions asked
Though It might be a good idea that I stop right here
And quit while I'm ahead
Already in the red
Already got a steady infa red me for my head
A Target on my back
Bigger problems than that
Bin Laden on my ass
He probably gone send a task
I ain't gone even ask
They ain't gon' let me pack
They ain't gon' gimme my Semi but I got my weed back

[Chorus]

We as a Americans
Us as a citizen
Gotta protect ourselves
Look at how shit has been
We better check ourselves
Livin up in these streets
Through worse and through better health
Surviving by any means
We as Americans
Us as a citizen
We as Samaritans
What do we get us in
We better check ourselves
Look at how shit has been
Take a look where you live
This is America
And we are Americans.
