​ShoYoAss

This song is by The Coup and appears on the album Pick a Bigger Weapon (2006).

Now's the time for you to show yo' ass
They ain't handin out no mo' cash
Mommas imitate my logo fast
Daddies take the safety off and blast

Now's the time for you to show yo' ass
They ain't handin out no mo' cash
Mommas imitate my logo fast
Daddies take the safety off and blast

Now this is mo' mean than fo' fiends with glocks unloading
Scrappin for a bag of gold rings and codeine
Whole life savings hid under the molding
"Mama Said Knock Them Out"; and I'm quoting

You're voting which you're hoping
Will stop the guns from smoking - is someone fucking joking?
They're bankers in sheep's clothing
I know places where the kids keep croaking
Lacking the essential vitamins and protein
Hustlin and hyphy are eloping
I'm the best man bustin' shots and toasting

Sippin Grey Goose get clipped off the bird
COme Sunday mornin get tripped off the word
TV and them preachers got pimp talkin' verbs
Settin us up to get ripped off and stirred

You flipped all them birds so your funds act right
Here come the drought whole thang's half price
My high school career counselor's advice
"Lil' niggaz act nice for your beans and rice"

I got some fight baby, take it to the head
I gives a fuck if it's permed or in dreads
Never snitch to the locals or the feds
See they tryna break us off so they don't have to break bread

'Cause Uncle Same ain't the baker, he's the butcher
We all on "Punk'd" with no Ashton Kutcher
Where ballin (no broke) cutthroats kaput ya
Ain't never took dope but them dopes done took ya

Stop flyin Ol' Glory man, cut it down
If your job ain't payin' right, shut it down
If your car got 18's, let it pound
And if we ever gon' do it let's do it now

Now's the time for you to show yo' ass
They ain't handin out no mo' cash
Mommas imitate my logo fast
Daddies take the safety off and blast

Now's the time for you to show yo' ass
They ain't handin out no mo' cash
Mommas imitate my logo fast
Daddies take the safety off and blast

You're in a system where they flirt with disaster
Tongue kiss death, have mass murder orgies till there's no one left
They're finger-fucking Lady Liberty under her dress
And since I didn't say this under my breath
I might be under arrest

Now lemme introduce
My slave name's Ray Riley, you can call me Boots
'Cause we gon' boot 'em outta power then spread the loot
We need to drive that freedom train, not ride caboose

And you can tell by the way I walk my walk
That there's a coroner behind me holdin' chalk
'Cause he works for the county who works for the state
Who works for the boss man eatin off your plate

We ain't one dimensional, max-detentional
Lookin' for the liquor store, what them hubbas hittin fo'?
We raised by the street light, praised for the street fight
Days we ain't eat right, hazed to complete life

Had to make homes outta muck and dirt
Just to get dinner take luck and work
They don't read my rights, they induct a curse
So you're cordially invited to go buck berzerk and um

Now's the time for you to show yo' ass
They ain't handin out no mo' cash
Mommas imitate my logo fast
Daddies take the safety off and blast

Now's the time for you to show yo' ass
They ain't handin out no mo' cash
Mommas imitate my logo fast
Daddies take the safety off and blast

The block is heated; baby, yeah
A hundred Fahrenheit
Act a fool, show yo' ass
Let's make it all right, yeah

The block is heated; baby, yeah
A hundred Fahrenheit, yeah
Act a fool, show yo' ass
Let's make it all right

It's introduction of a new breed of leaders
Stand up organize
It's introduction of a new breed of leaders
Stand up organize
It's introduction of a new breed of leaders
Stand up organize
It's introduction of a new breed of leaders
Stand up organize

The block is heated, baby, ooh
A hundred Fahrenheit
Act a fool, show yo' ass
Let's make it all right, yeah

The block is heated; baby, ooh
A hundred Fahrenheit
Act a fool, show yo' ass
Let's make it all right

The block is heated, baby, ooh
A hundred Fahrenheit
Act a fool, show yo' ass
Let's make it all right, yeah
