      Lyrics for Tupac - "16 On Death Row"

      Death Row

      That's where motherf***ers is endin up
      Dear mama, I'm caught up in this sickness
      I rob my adversaries, but Slick done left a witness
      Wonder if they'll catch me, or will this n**** snitch

      Should I shoot his b****, or make the n**** rich?
      Don't want to commit murder, but damn they got me trapped
      Hawkin' while I'm walkin', and talkin' behind my back
      I'm kind of schizophrenic, I'm in this s*** to win it

      'Cause life's a Wheel of, Fortune here's my chance to spin it
      Got no time for cops, who trip and try to catch me
      Too f***in trigger happy, to let them suckers snatch me
      N****z gettin' jealous (jealous) tryin' to find my stash

      Whip out the nine, now I'm a dive and pump your a**
      Peter picked a pepper, but I can pick a punk
      Snatched him like a b****, and threw him in the trunk
      The punk thought I was bluffin', but swear I'm nothin nice

      Before I take your life, first wrestle with these, mics
      I listen to him scream, Tray Deee went insane
      I guess the little, mites had finally found his brain
      New Rovers pull me over, I'm sentenced to the pen

      Remember that little, bird, he snitched and told a, friend
      It's trouble on my mind, I'm with the old timers
      And f*** five-oh, blaow blaow.. turn em into forty-niners

      [Tupac sings]
      Bye bye, I was never meant to live
      Can't be positive, when the ghetto's where you live
      Bye bye, I was never meant to be
      Livin' like a thief, runnin' through the streets

      Bye bye, and I got no place to go...
      Where they find me? 16 on Death Row
      Dear mama, these cops don't understand me
      I turned to a life of crime, cause I came from a broken family

      My uncle used to touch me, I never told you that
      Scared what you might do, I couldn't hold you back
      I kept it deep inside, I done let it fuel my anger
      I'm down for all my homies, no mercy for a stranger

      The brother in my set, is 16 is wet
      It's hard to adapt, when you're black and you're trapped in a livin
      Hell
      I shouldn't a let him catch me

      Instead of livin' sad in jail I could a died free and happy
      And my cellmate's raped on the norm
      And passed around the dorm, you can hear his a**hole gettin' torn
      They made me an animal

      Can't sleep, instead of countin' sheep, n****z countin' cannibals
      And that's how it is in the pen
      Turn old and cold, and your soul is your best friend
      My mama prayed for me

      Tell the Lord to make way for me, prepare any day for me (why?)
      'Cause when they come for me they find a struggler
      To the death I take the breath from your jugular
      The trick is to never lose hope
      I found my buddy hangin' dead from a rope, 16 on Death Row

      [Tupac sings]
      Bye bye, I was never meant to live
      Can't be positive, when the ghetto's where you live
      Bye bye, I was never meant to be
      Livin' like a thief, runnin' through the streets

      Bye bye, and I got no place to go...
      Where you find me? 16 on Death Row
      Dear mama, they sentenced me to death
      Today's my final day, I'm countin' every breath

      I'm bitter cause I'm dyin', so much I haven't seen
      I know you never dreamed, your baby would be dead at 16
      I got beef with a sick society that doesn't give a s***
      And they too quick to say goodbye to me

      They tell me the preacher's there for me
      He's a crook with a book, that motherf***er never cared for me
      He's only here to be sure
      I don't drop a dime to God bout the crimes he's commitin'

      On the poor, and how can these people judge me?
      They ain't my peers and in all these years, they ain't never love me
      I never got to be a man, must be part of some big plan
      To keep a n**** in the state pen

      And to my homies out buryin motherf***ers
      Steer clear of these Aryan motherf***ers
      'Cause once they got you locked up
      They got you trapped, you're better off gettin' shot

      I'm convinced self-defense is the way
      Please, stay strapped, pack a gat every day
      I wish I woulda known while I was out there
      Now I'm straight headin for the chair

      [Tupac sings]
      Bye bye, I was never meant to live
      Can't be positive, when the ghetto's where we live
      Bye bye, I was never meant to be
      Livin' like a thief, runnin' through the streets

      Bye bye, and I got no place to go...
      Where you find me? 16 on Death Row
      16 on Death Row
      It's to all my partners in the penitentiaries
      16 on Death Row
