Don't say sticks & stones they might break ya bones
but the 9mm it will blow ya dome
I'm talkin about the toe taggin, the body baggin
man niggas are dyin, mamas are cryin, casket buyin
Who, me dying? Leave my family crying?
Hell no, I cause 'em bloodbaths & showers
Send me commissary, muthafuck them flowers
thoughts of slaughter, of leaving my daughers
hours & hours of fears runnin through my mind
as I pickup the zig-nine
Beef starts with a shove then ends with the shovel
An' niggas standin' on ya corner reminiscing of you
but yo ass is out and you're dead & gone
So who'd ya rather be the murdered or the murderer?
Niggas got me stressed, I got my Tech & my vest
and I'm sayin Who Jah Bless, Let no man curse
or one of us will be here tonight in a hearse
One will be tried by 12 and fertilizing daisies
crying mamas & cousins & crying babies
due to the fact that death is a must
ashes to ashes & dust to dust
niggas gettin bust for in God we trust
so if you try to come into my town
to try ta slow the dough down, you must be casket bound
'Cause I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6
Nigga, I sign my name in the book at ya funeral
The zigs on my hip with an extra clip
'Cause I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6

Lodi Dodi, Saturday night and we like to party
But punks are fuckin' around so we might catch a body
Early Sunday morning don't really wanna hurt nobody
See what they tryin' ta get, I already got it
Chump muthafuckas just is skeemin' on my shit
But little do they know
I got the zig on my hip with an extra clip
An' I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6
Aw shit, murder commit
Then there goes another statistic runnin' through ballistic
The witness say I'm wicked but that's how I kick it
'Cause I'll be the bastard who blast & didn't get blasted
Boy kiss dem casket, I'll cutcha wig back kid
Now sucka look who died, body will be identified
Mama & Papa will cry
An' bitch ass man says he'll testify to see me tried
but here's I slide upon the same corner where you did
And I'm still facing the bid

'Cause I'd rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6
Nigga, I sign my name in the book at ya funeral
The zig's on my hip with an extra clip
'Cause I'd rather by tried by 12 than carried by 6
