Dr. Dre – Animals Lyrics

 

(Bridge – Anderson Paak)
These old sneakers, faded blue jeans, no tricks, no gimmicks
I be stomping down-down, down-down, down demons
Rolling up trees in the belly of the beast
Where the people disagree
The upper class hate, middle don’t exist
The bottom of the beat, glad I got my sticks
Are you jumping on a fad, laying in a ditch
I be stomping down demons, stomping down quick, come on

(Chorus – Anderson Paak)
Please don’t come around these parts
And tell me that we all a bunch of animals
The only time they wanna turn the cameras on
Is when we’re fucking s**t up, come on

(Verse 1 – Anderson Paak)
Bullets still ringing, blood on the cement
Black folks grieving, headlines reading
Tryna pay it no mind, you just living your life
Everyone is a witness, everyone got opinions
Got a son of my own, look him right in his eyes
I ain’t living in fear, but I’m holding him tight
Got a son of my own, look him right in his eyes
I ain’t living in fear, but I’m holding him tight

(Verse 2 – Dr. Dre)
Damn, why the f**k are they after me? Maybe cause I’m a bastard
Or maybe cause of the way my hair grow naturally
Still tryna figure out, why the f**k I’m full of rage
I think I noticed this bulls**t right around the fifth grade
Paraphernalia in my locker right next to the switch blade
Nothing but pu**y on my mind and some plans of getting paid
But I’m a product of the system raised on government aid
And I knew just how to react when it was time for that raid
Just a young black man from Compton wondering who could save us
And could barely read the sentences the justice system gave us
So many rental cars with bricks, I think they probably funded Avis
Some of us was unbalanced but some us used our talents, s**t
Not all of us criminals but cops be yelling, stay back ni**a
We need a little bit of payback
Don’t treat me like an animal cause all this s**t is flammable
Don’t f**k around cause when it’s done it’s done f**k you

(Pre-Hook – Anderson Paak)
And the old folks tell me it’s been going on since back in the day
But that don’t make it okay
And the white folks tell me all the looting and the shooting’s insane
But you don’t know our pain

(Repeat Chorus 2X)

(Bridge – Anderson Paak)
These old sneakers, faded blue jeans, no tricks, no gimmicks
I be stomping down-down, down-down, down demons
Rolling up trees in the belly of the beast
Where the people disagree
The upper class hate, middle don’t exist
The bottom of the beat, glad I got my sticks
Are you jumping on a fad, laying in a ditch
I be stomping down demons, stomping down quick, come on

(Repeat Pre Chorus)

(Repeat Chorus)

(Outro – DJ Premier)
Yeah, this is DJ motherf**king Premier
And I’m Dr. Dre, Dr. Dre
What, Premo!
Yeah we f**king s**t up
No, we don’t play no games here, motherf**ker, please!
