so long lyrics – pat benatar

[intro]
i think for the most part
our generation is…
is filled with a bunch of f*ckin cowards
and i say that man
because we beef amongst each other
we kill and we shoot each other in our own hoods
and we bang each other
we don’t bang cops
ya know what i’m sayin
and one thing
that these m*th*f*ckas in america know
they know we aint gonna do sh*t

[verse 1]
i’m grippin the nina
visions of 9/11
visions of three sixes, no sevens
this is bush-onomics
george is our modern day ronald regan
i pray to god in the midst of payers
n*gg*z i’m just sayin
when do we stop playin?
when do we stop pimpin and start sprayin?
50 shots for every cop that popped sean bell
his body layin
but they acquit
cause they know that our generation won’t do sh*t
nothin, nada
but every rapper is a shotta
or a don dotta or a killa
but you aint killin nothing in this piece
unless it’s another n*gg*
tryna raise boys to supermen
and while i’m nutty f*ck arthur j. cooperman
it’s never justice for blacks
but they send just us to iraq
with poor whites and latinos
i pray to god that you hear this single
this is banners middle finger y’all, yeah

[chorus][2x]
i’ve been waitin in the hood for so long
i’ve been waitin in the hood for so long
for some n*gg*z to stand up in here
we some soliders and we have no fear

[verse 2]
ms. kathryn johnston
was murdered by police in northwest atlanta
but i don’t hear it in the streets
where the anger in the hood for this old lady dyin?
dc-6 aint sh*t but cops lyin
aint sh*t but bullets flyin
39 slugs from undercovers
f*ck the law!
this was somebody d*mn grandmother
and she died over crack sales
crooked *ss cops or some n*gg*z tryna flip yayo
you aint have to sell it in her yard
you aint trappin b*tch
you yappin to the m*th*f*ckin guards
and i got a d*mn question
why the city aint p*ssed off?
when i know y’all heard shots
when that old lady got hauled off
y’all, yeah

[chorus][2x]
i’ve been waitin in the hood for so long
i’ve been waitin in the hood for so long
for some n*gg*z to stand up in here
we some soliders and we have no fear

[outro]
i wanna see a n*gg* ride for somethin dawg
fight for somethin
fight anybody but your m*th*f*ckin self n*gg*
we sell drugs
but we only sell drugs to our self
we bang
but only bang on our self
we do every f*ckin negative thing
and n*gg*z is so hard
n*gg*z on radio and on cds
on tapes and on movies
they got guns
they got pistols
but aint n*body shootin at nothin but their self
fear is the only thing that people respect
and we forgive everybody but our self
these cops are gonna have to fear somethin
somethin gonna have to happen
n*gg* if y’all gonna march
march to the m*th*f*ckin cops house my n*gg*
make these m*th*f*ckas fear something dude
they got us scared
they got n*gg*z scared to go to strip clubs n*gg*
ya know, sh*t, my n*gg*, like…
somethin gotta happen
i’ll say it my n*gg*
cause i aint scared
i aint scared of sh*t
i’m scared of god
i’m scared of god first
and i’m scared of takin the blessin
that god has given me
and leadin somebody down the wrong path…
