CHORUS Wake up in the morning go to work Fire up the truck and drive to Sonoma Hop on the forklift Fill up the truck with ten thousand pounds of newspaper Ten thousand pounds of racist, trash, and lies Drive the truck back to Santa Rosa put the newspaper in the recycle So the rich white man can print out the same batch of lies Again and again and again and again and again and again and again
It's too bad the cops had to kill that man But he had a broomstick and he was Asian We know they're all samurai warriors They're all kung fu masters They're all just like Jackie Chan It's too bad the cops had to restrain his wife Cause she was a registered nurse and she tried to save his life But that would go against rules and regulations To just forget at 2 at night We're so proud of our boys in blue Cause they always do what's right I saw Eileen today I saw her children play in the courtyard Lately it occurred to me How does a mama tell her children their dad got killed by the police?
It's too bad the cops had to kill that kid But someone called in a stolen walkman The cops they chased him down but he refused to lie face on the ground And he just walked away The cop said, "This punk can't walk away in the all black night so I had to shoot him in the back of the head From fifty feet away I had to kill him it was self defense I was afraid he would circle back around and kill me." I saw Corneleus speak today at the Hayward High That other police stole his sons life away Over a walkman that wasn't that much more than change How does a father find justice for a son stolen away? Stolen away Stolen away Stolen away Stolen away I don't want to hear your news cast anymore cause it's bullshit I don't want to see your headlines anymore cause they're bullshit I don't want to hear your press release anymore cause it's bullshit I don't want to see your police report anymore cause it's bullshit
