"Guns Don't Kill People, Rappers Do" as written by and Rhys William Joseph/rutledge Hutchings....
[Intro]
Guns don't kill people rappers do,
Ask any politican and they'll tell you its true,
Its a fact music makes you violent,
Like Michael Jackson telling little Timmy to be silent,
You don't believe me? here's my hype,
Offer me the record and i'll show you the type,
Of criminal this rap shit is breedin,
Its a fact that MC Hammer left me bleedin,
Vanilla Ice made my mother say 'Fuck',
If I stuck with UB40 then I woulda been in luck,
But I didn't I got it wrong,
Cypress fucking hill to me to make a fucking bong,
So I started, I bought another tape,
That bad boy vibe made my cock and balls ache,
So remember kids from the head double tap,
Guns don't kill people its just rap!

[Chorus]
Guns don't kill people rappers do
So of the police
Woo woo woo

Guns don't kill people rappers do,
I seen it in a documentary on BBC2,
Shot to death outside Hyper Value,
Guns blazin like Michael Cain in Zulu,
Guns with sadistic are sometimes misleading,
The type of criminal that rap is breedin,
Shot in the chest? No wonder you stopped breathin,
2 for the base over, are you receivin?
Remember rap tracks in '87
Scott the Rock's up ni Hip-Hop heaven,
Biggie and Tupac R.I.P,
Even Jam Master Jays in the cemetary.

[chorus]
Guns don't kill people rappers do,
I'm a fucking rapper and I might kill you,
As a rapper I'm teachin you a lesson,
AK47 to Smith-and-Weston
Just say no, just like Zappo
Bullet proof vest, to guns and ammo,
Hip-hop gangster trippin,
Even Eminems into pistol whippin,
Its like cluedo murder one,
P-Diddy, J'lo in a nightclub with a gun,
Heard snoop dog now wants to bust a cap,
Guns don't kill people its just rap

One, Two yo face my shoe,
My name is Mike Balls and I'm comin through,
Gun crimes, stabbin, and burglarisation,
Its on a rise all across the nation,
The safety's off and the pistol is aimed,
Yardies and the Mafia always get blamed,
Politicians are shamed, and they haven't got a clue,
Rap is more deadly than fucking Kung-Fu

[Chorus]
Guns don't kill people rappers do,
From Bristol Zoo to B&Q,
I want to rap, I want to rhyme
Heard it in a song now I'm into gun crime,
Its a sign of the times like Prince changin his name,
Gotta have a shooter to be in the rap game,
Like Michael Ryan about to snap,
Guns don't kill people its just rap!

[Chorus]
[Outro]

    General CommentA few mistakes there: It is:

    Goverment statistics are sometimes misleading

    Cypress fukin’ Hill taught me to make a fcuking bong
    But I stacked it, and bought another tape
    The Power by Snap made my cock and balls ache
    So remember kids, to the head double-tap
    Guns don’t kill people – it’s just rap

    sound of the police

    Scott la Rock

    AK47 to Smith and Weston - Smith and Weston made the first revolver

    Michael Ryan about to snap - The guy who shot loads of kids in an American school

    And of course rappers not wrappers

    General CommentClose...

    Michael Ryan was British, the chap who shot many people in Hungerford.

    Zammo, not Sammo - Zammo is the kid in Grange Hill who got into drugs

    'Bulletproof vest, to guns and ammo'

    AK47 to Smith and _Wesson_ - not Weston.

    The line you've got starting as 'Solid Crew' definitely ends 'Murder One'

    Oh, it's 'Started' not 'Stacked it'

    General CommentActually yes come to think of it he was British.

    Sounds to me like he says: "It's like Cluedo, Murder One"

    General Commentits 'started', not 'stacked it.'

    its definately...'its like cluedo, murder one' not 'solid crew told we're the ones.'

    and by the way, its 'summon the police' not 'sound of the police'

    General CommentNot certain whether it's sound of the police or not but the whoo whoo whoo bit is straight out of Sound of Da Police by KRS-One songmeanings.net/… who the chain are big fans of
    and in that the chorus goes:

    Woop-woop!
    That's the sound of da police!
    Woop-woop!
    That's the sound of the beast!

    so I would go with Sound of da Police

    General CommentCome out with your hands on your head
    Turn the rap music off and step away from the stereo
    Put the rap album down, leave MC Hammer alone - turn it off

    BUT, Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    Ask any politician and he'll tell you it's true
    It's a fact, music makes you violent
    Like Michael Jackson telling little Timmy to be silent
    You don't believe me, here's my hype
    Offer me the record and I'll show you the type
    Of criminal this rap shit is breeding
    It's a fact that MC Hammer left me bleeding
    Vanilla Ice made my mother say, "fuck"
    If i stuck with 'UB40' then i woulda been in luck
    But I didn't, I got it wrong
    Cypress fucking Hill taught me to make a fucking bong
    But I stacked it, I bought another tape
    The Power by Snap, my cock and balls ache
    So remember kids till the head double-tap
    Guns don't kill people, it's just rap

    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    So do the police
    Woo woo woop
    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    So do the police
    Woo woo woop

    Guns don't kill people, wrappers do
    I seen it in a documentary on BBC 2
    Shot to death outside Hyper Value
    Guns blazing like Michael Caine in Zulu
    Government statistics are sometimes misleading
    The type of criminal rap is breeding
    Shot in the chest no one here stopped the bleeding
    2-4 to base over, are you receiving?
    Remember rap tracks in '87
    Scott la Rock up in hip-hop heaven
    Biggie and Tupac R.I.P.
    Even Jam Master Jay's in the cemetery

    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    So do the police
    Woo woo woop
    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    So do the police
    Woo woo woop

    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    I'm a fucking rapper and I might kill you
    As a rapper I'm teachin' you a lesson
    AK-47 to Smith and Weston
    Just say no, just like Zammo
    Bulletproof vest, two guns and ammo
    Hip-Hop gangsta trippin
    Even Eminem's into pistol whipping
    S'like cludo Murder one
    P. Diddy, J. Lo in a nightclub with a gun
    Heard Snoop Dogg now wants to bust a cap
    Guns don't kill people, it's just rap

    One, two, yo, face my shoe
    My name's Mike Balls and I'm coming through
    Guns crimes, stabbin' and burgalarization
    Is on the rise all across the nation
    The safety's off and the pistol's aimed
    The Yardies and the Mafia always get blamed
    Politician's ashamed, and they haven't got a clue
    Rap is more deadly than fucking kung-fu

    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    So do the police
    Woo woo woop
    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    So do the police
    Woo woo woop

    Guns don't kill people, wrappers do
    From Bristol Zoo to B&Q
    I wanna rap, I wanna rhyme
    Heard it in a song, now I'm into gun crime
    It's a sign of the times like Prince changing his name
    You gotta have a shooter to be in the rap game
    Like Michael Ryan about to snap
    Guns don't kill people, it's just rap

    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    So do the police
    Woo woo woop
    Guns don't kill people, rappers do
    So do the police
    Woo woo woop
