Wake your punk ass up for the 93 shot 
MC Eiht's in the motherfuckin house.. gyeah 
And it ain't nothin but a compton thang y'all 
And we ain't nuttin but niggaz on the run 
And this goes out to my niggaz.. gyeah 

A fucked up childhood, is why the way I am 
It's got me in the state where I don't give a damn, hmm 
Somebody help me, but nah they don't hear me though 
I guess I'll be another victim of the ghetto 
Ain't no escapin, cause I'm way too young 
Pops is dealin, and on top of that got moms sprung
Scheamin off the top, pops never figured
That he'd go down by the hands of another nigga 
Now my pops is gone and that ain't no good
Got to follow in the foot steps of the homies from the hood 
And where's the role model? 
Niggaz putting brew in my fuckin baby bottle! 
Damn, and through all the motherfuckin pain 
They done drove my moms in-sane
So I guess I gotta do work so I ain't finished
I grow up to be a streiht up menace, gyeah

Uhh, come on y'all 
Streiht up menace 

Now I'm of age, and livin in the projects 
Gettin paid off the clucks and the county checks 
I'm Fil-ia fresh outta high school, never did I wonder 
That the motherfuckin hood would take me under 
Gyeah, I'm kickin it with the homies and they got the straps 
Off to the corner store, owned by the fuckin {Japs}
See a bitch in the right lane so I comes with the mack
Astro Bam pulls a motherfuckin jack from the back 
Now he's got the strap to my homie's head 
See him play that shit cool, and don't be a fool! 
He shot my nigga in the fuckin head 
I caught one in the shoulder, if I didn't run I was dead 
Now I'm layin in the hospital bed 
Thinkin about them punk motherfuckers and my eyes is bloodshot red 
Gyeah motherfuckers, I ain't finished
Be on the look-out for the streiht up menace, gyeah

Uhh, whassup y'all 
Streiht up menace .. damn! 
Streiht up menace .. damn! 

I'm in too deep 
I done killed a motherfucker and I just can't sleep 
One-Time's tryin to do a smooth, creep 
And on top of that 
Niggaz after me for fuckin one of they hood rats 
I ain't got time for the fuckin bitch's story 
Niggaz want me gotta come to my territory 
And ain't no "You Can Get the Fist"
Niggaz come, and they get done on they own risk 
What is it all about? 
Should I leave or should I stay cause I don't wanna punk out 
Oh what should I do?  The homies say 
"The hood's where it's good, homeboy, I thought you knew"
So in the process to show the hood my best 
No time to react, caught two in the chest 
Now look who's down, I guess I'm finished 
I go out like a streiht up menace, gyeah 

Uhh, come on y'all 
Streiht up menace .. damn! 
And on and on 
I guess we outta here 
Peace to my niggaz on the run 
And it ain't nuttin but streiht up menaces, damn!
Just like I said before y'all 
It ain't nuttin but a compton thang 
And MC Eiht's in the house for the 93 shot 
And this one's for the niggaz, gyeah
