I was born in a human body, Im deadly and dangerous
The way I decrease life quality is outrageous
But you dont gotta worry, Im not contagious
Im genetic, I travel through your family for ages
I could live in yo daughter, I could live in yo son
If you smoke cigarettes, I could live in yo lungs
I can develop in yo stomach and be that small
But I grow to the size of a basketball
Now you can ignore me and try to pass it on
Youll be a statistic, in the casket gone
I could be a sharp pain that you feel in yo spine
I can be a brain tumor on the back of yo mind
Ill even be in yo food if you eatin that swine
Dont go to the doctor so you never catch me in time
I done cause some strong men to lose they strength
Even cause some pretty women to lose they breasts
Only God know the cure and to whom he bless
Is the chosen, he choose the best
Im a physical enemy, here to bring miserable treachery
I can affect him, her, they, you or them and me
But one small woman gotta checkup randomly
They burn me out of her body with chemotherapy
If you come late Ill deflate your energy
Take all of your hair and erase your memory
I can shorten your life if you livin it long
Even took a black queen named Vivian Strong
If you dont go to the doctor that mean you support me
The only way to stop me is to catch me early
And gangstas who think I cant get in y'all body
I even claimed the life of mobster John Gotti
Have you had a checkup? If no is your answer
Then let me introduce myself, my name is cancer

He rides to it
Dont stress a lot
Put protection on
If hes in your home

The prettiest woman out here blows long in the wind
Even sip when she wasnt soft as her skin
Teeth look like ivory, pleasant as a beach
Breasts like 2 watermelons, ripe like a peach
On the outside, sexy as can be
But on the inside shes infected with me
She be up in every neighborhood, dead on the street
Give you her phone number, give you head in the V
And she dont like condom, she sex it for free
So if you ever met er get tested for me
Every single day I add names to my dying list
My epidemic is strong as an iron fist
You should check your body fluids, thats where I exist
Can travel through saliva, I hope you like to kiss
You cant get rid of me, you can cry and wish
Its no denying this, science says
He says I was born in Africa, but hes a lying bitch
I was born in the laboratory, my fathers a scientist
You cant contact me if you walk in a bathroom
Or if you talk to your classmate in your classroom
You never see me coming, Im smooth as a jazz tune
Not airborne, I pass moves
But you should make sure they clean the needle when you getting them tattoos
Im the reason the word positive means bad news
Idiotic if you dont believe in me
Even took a great rapper named Eazy-E
If you have a lot of sex you should have some condoms
Cause you could live with me, ask Magic Johnson
I enter your body with only one assumed mission
Thats only to break down your immune system
Become sick easy cuz you not immune
And I can pass over through every open wound
So make sure you put a Band-Aid on your cut
Before you shake another mans hands sayin wussup
Im physical and visible, you cant feel me
Medicine, Im invincible, you cant kill me
AIDS is my name, dont get it wrong
It stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
(Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome)

This drug addict named Raj is infected with my evil
Got some new dope he wanna try with his people
He said go ahead and try it, its some brand new diesel
Thats when I found myself travelling through a needle
Dont even know what he getting into is a shame
Tied his arm up and pump me right in his vein
He had a lot of women, was living to play his life
But he was married, he took me home to his wife
Now shes a carrier who carries on with me
His wife had a baby, the baby was born with me
And I hope that you wouldnt take this song silly
A lot of people infected, its a strong pity
You got a jimmy hat? Then you should put on jimmy
Lets protect ourselves, we should all, really
Im tryna live long, wont you live long with me?
Suburbs to the city, sing this song with me

He rides to it
Dont stress a lot
Put protection on
If hes in your home

He rides to it
Dont stress a lot
Put protection on
If hes in your home

He rides to it
Dont stress a lot
Put protection on
If hes in your home
