Well listen to me, you young hoods, this is some advice You do the crime, you're paying the price Cause if you're in the drug spots, selling crack on the block Snatching chains, busting brains, like a real hard rock If you ever hear a cop say you're under arrest Go out just like a trooper, stick out your chest Cause you might have been robbing, you might have been whylin' But you won't be smiling on Riker's Island Just to hear the name it makes your spine tingle This is a jungle where the murderers mingle This ain't a place that's crowded but there's room for you Whether you're white or you're black, you'll be black and blue Cause in every cell block, there is a hard rock With a real nice device that's called a sock lock Don't ever get caught in a crime my friend Cause this bus trip is not to Adventure's Inn They have a nice warm welcome, for new inmates Razors, and shanks, and sharp edged plates Posses will devour, punks with power After the shower it's, rush hour So watch your back before you get sacked These a bunch of maniacs that's about to attack If you're a hustling pro, keep a low profile'n Cause you won't be smiling on Riker's Island See-74, adolescents at war Put your ear to the floor, you can hear the roar They take you out of BC, they now found you a cage All eyes are glued to you like you're up on stage If you're soft as a leaf, don't get into a beef And God be with you chief if you got gold teeth Some try to be hard, front and say I'm God Don't know a lesson say a blessing, you're gonna get scared (Yo call the C.O.) That won't be necessary He'll watch him beat you down, and take your commissary-acap
