White America Lyrics

[ Intro ]

America Hahaha We love you
How many people are proud to be citizens of this beautiful country of ours?
The stripes and the stars for the rights of men who have died for the protect?
The women and men who have broke their necks for the freedom of speech
the United States Government has sworn to uphold
Yo, I want everyone to listen to the words of this song, Or so we’re told…

[ Verse 1 ]

I never woulda dreamed in a million years id see
so many mutha fuckin people who feel like me
Who share the same views? And the same exact beliefs
It?s like a fuckin army marchin in back of me
So many lives I touched So much anger aimed at no particular direction Just sprays and sprays
Straight through your radio waves It plays and plays
Till it stays stuck in your head For days and days
who woulda thought standin in this mirror Bleachin my hair
wit some Peroxide Reachin for a T shirt to wear
That I would catapult to the fore-front of rap like this
How can I predict my words And have an impact like this
I musta struck a chord wit somebody up in the office Cuz congress
keeps tellin me I ain’t causin nuttin but problems
And now they sayin im in trouble wit the government I’m lovin it

I shovelled shit all my life And now i’m dumpin it on

[ Chorus ]

White America! I could be one of your kids
White America! Little Erik looks just like this
White America! Erica loves my shit I go to TRL Look how many hugs I get

[ Verse 2 ]

Look at these eyes baby blue baby just like yourself
If they were brown Shady knew shady sits on the shelf
But Shadys cute Shady knew Shady’s dimples would help Make ladies swoon baby (ooo baby) Look at myself
Lets do the math, If I was black I woulda sold half
I ain?t have to graduate From Lincoln High School to know that
But I can rap so fuck school I?m too cool to go back
Gimme the mic Show me where the fuckin studio’s at
When I was underground, No one gave a fuck I was white
No labels wanted to sign me Almost gave up, I was like
“Fuck it” Until I met Dre The only one who looked past
Gave me a chance and I lit a fire up under his ass
Helped him get back to the top Every fan black that I got
Was probably his In exchange for every white fan that he’s got
Like damn we just swapped Sittin back look at this shit wow
I?m like “My skin, is it startin to work for my benefit now?”

[ Chorus ]

[ Verse 3 ]

See the problem is I speak to suburban kids
Who otherwise Woulda never knew these words exist
These moms probably woulda never gave 2 squirts of piss
Till I created so much mutha fuckin turbulence
Straight out the tube right into ya livin rooms I came
And kids Flipped When they knew I was produced by Dre
That?s all it took And they were instantly hooked right in
And they connected wit me too cuz I looked like them
That?s why they put my lyrics up under this microscope
Searchin wit a fine toothed comb, it?s like this rope, waitin to choke
Tightenin around my throat, Watchin me while I write this like “I don?t like this, NO!”
All I hear is Lyrics lyrics constant controversy
Sponsors workin round the clock To try to stop my concerts early
Surely hip hop is never a problem In Harlem only In Boston
After it bothered ya fathers of daughters startin to blossom
Now i?m catchin the flack from these activists When they raggin Actin
like im the 1st rapper to smack a bitch and say faggot Shit
Just look at me like im ya closest pal
A poster child the mutha fuckin spokesman now!

[ Chorus ]

[ Outro ]

So to the parents of America
I am the damager aimed at little Erica, to attack her character
The ring leader of the circus of worthless pawns
Sent to lead the march right up to the steps of Congress And piss on the lawns of the Whitehouse
To burn the casket and replace it with a parental advisory sticker
To spit liquor in the faces of this democracy of hypocrisy
Fuck you Ms Cheney, Fuck you Tipper Gore,
Fuck you with the free-este of space this divided state of embarrassment will allow me to have
Fuck You Hahaha! im just playin America, you know I love you
