  • He won the lottery when he was born
    Took his mothers white breast to his tongue
    Trained like dogs color and smell
    Walks by me to get to him
    Police man
    Police man

    He won the lottery by being born
    Big hand slapped a white male American
    Do no wrong so clean cut

    Dirty his hands it comes right off
    Police man
    Police man
    Police stopped my brother, again
    Police stopped my brother, again
    Police stopped my brother, again
    Police man

    Jesus greets me, looks just like me

    Do no wrong so clean cut
    Dirty his hands, it comes right off
    Police man
    Police man
    Police man
    Police stopped my brother again
    Police stopped my brother again
    Police stopped my brother again
    Police man
    Police man

    Police stopped my brother again
    Police stopped my brother again
    Police stopped my brother again
    Police man
    Police man
    Police man

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjPolice men are @$$holes - and I'm related to one!
  • Kevin from Melbourne, FlThis is too funny. One of the PJ concerts I went to was back in 94' and I bought a T-shirt and I have been wearing it 17 years, I don't wear it that often. Well the design on the shirt is a guy being held up by the police with a billy club in hand with the initials WMA and on the back it just has the word POLICE in big letters. There is nothing that says Pearl Jam and I never new the story behind it, now it really makes sense. Thanks!
