Attention party people, it's an APB
That is an all points bulletin from Young MC
Whether your a senior citizen or just a tyke
Just grab a seat and pay attention as I rock the mic
I wrote a couple rhymes and called it "Just Say No"
Dedicated to the people who are on the go
It can help you out if you're on the brink
And if you listen, this jam will make you think
If you were ever in a situation
Without enough time for conteplation
All of your friends going the same way
You feel kind of trapped, you don't know what to say
Just say no-cause better safe than sorry
This is for real, this is no game or folly
It's your life and you've only got one
So you'd better do it right or it will soon be done
You want to be popular, you want to be cool
You want to be the one everyone wants in school
You want to be everything just for everyone else
But you better think of what you want to be for yourself
Everyday people living in the same old mess
Hard to be original and not be like the rest
You've got to go with what you know, you can't afford to guess
And heaven knows what would happen if you did say yes

Kids OD'ing causing familes griet
Over the marajuana plant and the coca leaf
Over a bunch of pills to try and get their thrills
Over drugs you shoot because you think its cute
Over something you smoke man it ain't no joke
Over something you drink homeboy why don't you think
Over something you short like you were playing a sport
Over day you'll go too far and then you'll come up short
Some people out there don't seem to get my point
Tellin' others crack kills while there smokin' a joint
The point of this song is to tell the facts
Some people die from smokin' cheeba like they die from crack
Not a drug in particular but drugs in general
They're not good for you like a vitamin or a mineral
They come in liquid, leaf, powder, pills, and rocks
To put you six feet under on your back in a box "SAY NO"

Not an addict or a junkie, no not my friend
He just likes to do the drugs every now and again
Strung out or hooked, not him he's coolin'
Then I'd say holmes, who do you think your foolin'
You started out doing it every once in awhile
Cause smokin' that crack is supposed to be in style
Then you did a little more but you did not worry
But when you had the pipe, you were in a hurry
You were sparkin' up at every turn of the clock
And you would even drop your girl to get a piece of the rock
Yo dollar, Hollywood, home piece, home slice
A man on crack is soon to be on ice
Your robbin' and stealin', sellin' and dealin'
You're smoking that crack and your mind goes realin'
Lost your girl, lost all your friends
Doesn't look like you'll ever get them back again
Parents upset, don't understand
That your only happy when the pipe is in your hand
I try to help you out 'cause your my buddy
I heard you had a fight and your face got bloody
It's gone too far, you've got to change your ways
Or the crack is gonna kill you ass, one of these days
I'm begging you to stop, please just be brave
Cause I'll be crying when I lay the flowers on your grave
