[Vers 1: Nas]
Yeah check it uh
Spot build-rocker lil' papa killed Hoffa
Beard lil' longer feel strong and I'll stop ya
Drill sergeant still thorough wheelbarrows of distilled vodka
Get me real bonkers like Will Ferrell on cat tranquilizer
Rap guys get bank and think they messiahs but they liars
Vote fo who now? You're red white and blue?
I'm American too but I ain't with the president's crew
What you peddlin' and who you peddlin' to?
You ain't got the ghetto with you
Try'na lead my sheep to the slaughterhouse
Talkin 'bout +Rap the Vote+ you ain't thought about
The black vote mean nathan who you gonna elect
Satan or Satan? In the hood nothin is changin uh
We ain't got no choices who to choose
Ten-years ago they were tryin to stop our voices
And end Hip-Hop they some hypocrites
Condoleeza Rice - I don't really get this chick
Tell her if she ever really cared about poor schools
About poor children then she gotta prove that she
Ain't just another coon Uncle Tom fool
Like these MC's gotta give 'em the rules
Lie to the youth Uncle Tom you confused
Might as well give the Hip-Hop community a noose
Need a truce with the gangs and some food for the hungry
On Kerry nuts he look at you like a monkey
You MC's on that old slavery path
The Bushs'll look at yo' ass and laugh
See it's all about community let's help ourselves
Cops brutalize us get dealt with with shells
It's our turn it's 'bout time we win
Need somebody from the hood as my councilman uh

Yeah I think about this every day that's the American Way shit
[Verse 2: Nas]
Up in the steam room chillin' exfoliating the skin
Israeli men conversatin' on ends probably businessmen
I sense good taste and they watch us the spots an expensive place
Manhattan New York I'm try'na keep steamin'
It's good for the lungs had plans for the evening
This man leans in his boys laughing
Now I'm the spokesperson for Black men this always happens
Says "Since all Black women care about is who got dough
And all we do is call them either bitch or a Black ho"
I say first brotha you ain't gotta be that cold
Since you ignorant I'mma show you how the facts go
The biggest example in scandal of history
Were Monica Lewinksy or Donald Trump's pimping spree
Most woman who love Giovanni or Gucci
Are pretentious non-Black groupies or floozies
But who are we to blame not the dames
It's a man-made game in essence our woman the same
Beautiful creatures Black girls birthed the earth
So they deserve the Hermes purse
Matter fact I'm about to go shopping with my dime
Catch you cowards the next time the next rhyme uh
I don't care about the runaways
I don't care about who's gay
I don't care about dying of AIDS
But I care if I got paid
Who even cares about the president?
I think they're making a mistake
I don't care about the hurricane
As long as my family's safe
I don't care about the candidates
They burnt this country to bits
Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way (Nas: Uh)
Can we make a change
You know it's not overnight
Let's start the fight (Nas: And ya don't stop uh)
Can we make a change
You know it's not overnight
Let's start the fight (Nas: Yeah)
Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way
*Sample* Nas: Nas is a rebel to America!
