There's total silence, blood everywhere
And confusion on their faces as they continue to stare
Then Gwen starts shakin' and cryin', screamin', "What did you do?!"
And then the policeman looks at me and screams
"See, now I warned you!"

Then he starts pacing the floor screamin'
"God, what have we done here?!"
And she rushed to the door, blood on her hands screamin'
"There goes your whole career"

Meanwhile, I'm freakin' out sayin', "We gotta do somethin'
And gotta do somethin' quick"
Then he picks up the gun and says, "I have a wife at home
I can't have no cause of this"
She says, "James, I can't believe you just said what you said
'Cause that's not what you was sayin' when your ass was in my bed"

Then I said, "Get married later, but right now we gotta use our heads
First of all, did anybody think to check if the man was alive or dead?"
Then he looks at her, she looks at me
I look at them and we look at him
Meanwhile, Gwen's about to have a nervous breakdown
The way she's shakin' and cryin'

And then she screams, "You bastards! You've killed my brother!"
And then I said, "Gwen, wait a minute, I didn't"
She says, "No, you killed my brother!"
She said, "He just got out of prison, he's been through a lot
He was talking about changin' his life and everything
And to come home and get shot"

And I said, "Baby, it wasn't my fault, this man had a gun on me
And besides, how was I to know that you was getting down
With this crooked ass policeman?"
And he says, "Wait a minute," I say, "No, you wait a minute!"
And then I say, "Man, this is my wife
We had a life until you butted up in it!"

She cried out, "Sylvester, now hold on! Even though he was in our home Let's not forget the fact that you was out there
Creepin' in another man's home"

Twan starts coughin'
And she says, "Twan! Oh my god! Baby brother, are you okay?"
He looks up at her and says, "I'm not gonna die, at least not today"
And then he asks what happened, and says, "Why did I get shot?
Sylvester what is this policeman doin' here?"
And I said, "Go on, tell him cop"

He says, "Son, we gotta get you to a hospital
And take a look at that wound"
Twan says, "No, I'm okay, it's just my shoulder
All I need is a bathroom"
Now five minutes has gone by and they tellin'
Twan everything that happened
Twan says, "Fuck man, I would've been better off in prison"

And now somebody's banging at the door and I'm like
"Aw no! Here we go again!"
Thinkin' out loud to myself, sayin', "When is this shit gonna end?!"
Then Gwendolyn looks at me and says, "Baby, you got that?"
And I say, "No!"
She says, "Why?" And I said, "Because I'm not
Openin' up another motherfuckin' door!"

And the cop says, "Gwen, I'll get it"
Then looks at me and says, "Man of the house, my ass!"
Then I say, "I'll get it, but whoever it is
I'm about to put their ass on blast!"

And then the policeman grabbed me
I snatched away and got my gun up off the floor
Then Twan says, "Man, that's what I'm talkin' about!
Sylvester, point that shit toward the door!"

Then he snatches the policeman's gun and says
"Officer, arrest me later"
I count to three, Twan opened the door and it's
Rosy the nosy neighbor

Ooh, with a spatula in her hand
Like that's gon' do something against them guns
It's Rosy the nosy neighbor
