The lyrics to the song include:

"Y'all gon' make me lose my mind
Up in here, up in here
Y'all gon' make me go all out
Up in here, up in here

Y'all gon' make me act a fool
Up in here, up in here
Y'all gon' make me lose my cool
Up in here, up in here

If I gotsta bring it to you cowards then it's gonna be quick, aight
All your mens up in the jail before, suck my d***
And all them other cats you run with, get done with, dumb quick
How the f*** you gonna cross the dog with some bum s***? Aight

There go the gun click, nine one one s***
All over some dumb shit, ain't that some s***
Y'all n***** remind me of a strip club, cause everytime
You come around, it's like (what) I just gotta get my d*** sucked

And I don't know who the f*** you think you talkin' to
But I'm not him, aight, Slim? So watch what you do
Or you gon' find yourself, buried next to someone else
And we all thought you loved yourself

But that couldn't have been the issue, or maybe
They just sayin' that now cause they miss you
Shit a n**** tried to diss you
That's why you layin' on your back, lookin' at the roof of the church
Preacher tellin' the truth and it hurts."
