  • Who killed Liddle?
    Did you kill Liddle?
    Who killed Liddle?
    Police killed Liddle Towers

    Who killed Liddle?
    Did you kill Liddle?
    Who killed Liddle?
    Did you kill Liddle Towers?
    Who killed Liddle?
    Did you kill Liddle?
    Who killed Liddle?
    Police killed Liddle Towers

    Why did he die, or did they lie?
    I think he's dead, so a doctor said
    He was beaten black, He was beaten blue
    But don't be alarmed, it was the right thing to do
    The police have the power, Police have the right
    To kill a man to take away his life
    Drunk and disorderly was his crime
    I think at worst he should be doing time
    But he's dead
    He was drunk and disorderly and now he's dead

    Questions are unanswered
    Policeman scared to talk
    Perhaps they are hiding something
    Will my message get across
    Please tell me why, why did he die
    Please tell me now, and tell me how

    Police have the answers
    But they haven't got the right, to kill a man
    To take away his life
    Perhaps I'm not to clever, perhaps I'm not to bright
    But I think your verdict was just a lie, a lie, a lie, lie

    Murder, murder, murder, murder
    Murder

    Who killed Liddle?
    Did you kill Liddle?
    Who killed Liddle?
    Police killed Liddle Towers
    Who killed Liddle?
    Did you kill Liddle?
    Who killed Liddle?
