Microphone check, yo, yeah

They won't call me a nigga
They won't call me a nigga

Listen to the preacher man, but are you talkin' to me?
I can't hear you with a mouth full of pig's feet
Thy shouldn't eat the swine flesh
Your body is a mess but you're blessed

With the Father, Son, Spirit an' the Holy Ghost
But my whole neighborhood is comatose
Lookin' for survival
The Devil made you a slave an' he gave you a Bible

400 years of gettin' our ass kicked
By so called Christians an' Catholics
But I'ma watch 'em burn in the fire
See I'm a G, that's why I ain't in your choir

'Cause I see, 'cause I know
The church ain't nuttin' but a fashion show
Get the Devil do a 187
An' they won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven

They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't

You're waitin' for the Devil to come from the ground
Clown, take a look around
Just look at the cross that the priest is holdin'
A beast in sheep's clothin'

But I'm rollin' with that knowledge of self
'Cause Heaven ain't just wealth
So mister preacher, if I couldn't pay my tithe
Do I have to wait outside?

White man, please take another look
'Cause we couldn't be readin' out the same book
'Cause you'se a crook an' I'm a brother
King James had sex with his mother

Is that yo' edition? Is that your religion?
Black man, you gotta make a decision
'Cause God is comin' on day number seven
An' they won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven

They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't
They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't

The same white man that threw me in the slammer
He bombed the church in Alabama
So if I cock the hammer, God won't mind
If I have to kill the human swine

'Cause God is a killer from the start
Why you think, Noah had to build his Ark?
An' God is a man from his feet to his hair
That's why you say 'Amen' after each an' every prayer

I just stare at the church, man
Spendin' mo' money on the church band
But Elijah's got a plan
Got the white man screamin', Damn that Farrakhan

'Cause one day these babies'll uprise
Much more than bow ties an' bean pies
Kickin' knowledge at the 7/11
An' they won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven

They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't
They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't

They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't
They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't

They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't
They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't

They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't
They won't call me a nigga when I get to Heaven
No they won't, no they won't, no they won't
