Cop Killer

Album: Body Count (1992)
  • I got my black shirt on.
    I got my black gloves on.
    I got my ski mask on.
    This shit's been too long.

    I got my twelve gauge sawed off.
    I got my headlights turned off.
    I'm 'bout to bust some shots off.
    I'm 'bout to dust some cops off.

    I'm a cop killer, better you than me.
    Cop killer, fuck police brutality!
    Cop killer, I know your family's grieving,
    (fuck 'em!)
    Cop killer, but tonight we get even, ha ha.

    I got my brain on hype.
    Tonight will be your night.
    I got this long-assed knife.
    And your neck looks just right.

    My adrenaline's pumpin'.
    I got my stereo bumpin'.
    I'm 'bout to kill me somethin'.
    A pig stopped me for nuthin'!

    Cop killer, better you than me.
    Cop killer, fuck police brutality!
    Cop killer, I know your momma's grieving,
    (fuck her!)
    Cop killer, but tonight we get even, yeah!

    Die, die, die pig, die!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!

    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Yeah!

    Cop killer, better you than me.
    I'm a cop killer, fuck police brutality!
    Cop killer, I know your family's grieving,
    (fuck 'em!)
    Cop killer, but tonight we get even, ha ha ha ha, yeah!

    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!

    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Fuck the police!
    Break it down.

    Fuck the police, yeah!
    Fuck the police, for darryl gates.
    Fuck the police, for rodney king.
    Fuck the police, for my dead homies.

    Fuck the police, for your freedom.
    Fuck the police, don't be a pussy.
    Fuck the police, have some muthafuckin' courage.
    Fuck the police, sing along.

    Cop killer!
    Cop killer!
    Cop killer!
    Cop killer!

    Cop killer! what do you want to be when you grow up?
    Cop killer! good choice.
    Cop killer! I'm a muthafuckin'
    Cop killer!

    Cop killer, better you than me.
    Cop killer, fuck police brutality!
    Cop killer, I know your momma's grieving,
    (fuck her!)
    Cop killer, but tonight we get even! Writer/s: ERNEST T. CUNNIGAN, TRACY LAUREN MARROW
