Meet Eddie, twenty-three years old
Fed up with life and the way things are going
He decides to rob a liquor store
But on his way in, he has a sudden change of heart
And suddenly, his conscience comes into play

[Dr. Dre]
Alright stop, now before you walk in the door of this liquor store
And try to get money out the drawer
You better think of the consequence, who are you?
I'm your motherfucking conscience

That's nonsense
Go in, gaffle the money and run to one of your aunt's cribs
And borrow a damn dress, and one of her blond wigs
Tell her you need a place to stay, you'll be safe for days
If you shave your legs with Renee's razor blades

[Dr. Dre]
Yeah, but if it all goes through like it's supposed to
The whole neighborhood knows you and they'll expose you
Think about it before you walk in the door first
Look at the store clerk, she's older than George Burns

Fuck that, do that shit, shoot that bitch
Can you afford to blow this shit, are you that rich
Why you give a fuck if she dies, are you that bitch
Do you really think she gives a fuck if you have kids

[Dr. Dre]
Man, don't do it, it's not worth it to risk it
Not over this shit, drop the biscuit
Don't even listen to Slim yo, he's bad for you

You know what Dre, I don't like your attitude

Meet Stan, twenty-one years old
After meeting a young girl at a rave party
Things start getting hot and heavy in an upstairs bedroom
Once again, his conscience comes into play

[Verse 2]

Now listen to me, while you're kissin' her cheek
Smearin' her lipstick, slip this in her drink
Now all you gotta do is nibble on this little bitch's earlobe

[Dr. Dre]
Yo, this girl's only fifteen years old
You shouldn't take advantage of her, it's not fair

Yo, look at her bush, does it got hair
Fuck this bitch right here, on the spot bare
Till she passes out and she forgot how she got there

[Dr. Dre]
Man, ain't you ever seen that one movie "KIDS"

No, but I seen the porno with Sun Doobie in it

[Dr. Dre]
Shit, you wanna get hauled off to jail

Man, fuck that; hit that shit raw dawg and bail

Meet Grady, a twenty-nine year old construction worker
After coming home from a hard day's work
He walks in the door of his trailer park home
To find his wife in bed with another man

[Dr. Dre]
Alright calm down, relax, and start breathing

Fuck that shit, you just caught this bitch cheatin'
While you at work she's with some dude trying to get off
Fuck slittin' her throat, cut this bitch's head off

[Dr. Dre]
Wait, what if there's an explanation for this shit

What, she tripped, fell, landed on his dick

[Dr. Dre]
Alright Shady, maybe he's right Grady
But think about the baby before you get all crazy

Okay, thought about it, still wanna stab her
Grab her by the throat, get your daughter and kidnap her
That's what I did, be smart, don't be a retard
You gonna take advice from somebody who slapped Dee Barnes

[Dr. Dre]
What'chu say?

What's wrong, didn't think I'd remember?

[Dr. Dre]
I'ma kill you motherfucker

Uhhh-aahh, temper, temper
Mr. Dre, Mr. N.W.A, Mr. AK
Comin' Straight Outta Compton, y'all better make way
How in the fuck you gonna tell this man not to be violent

[Dr. Dre]
Cause he don't need to go the same route that I went
Been there, done that; aw fuck it
What am I saying
Shoot 'em both Grady, where your gun at
