ICE-T's 'COP KILLER'


By the band BodyCount, Ice-T's rock band for a while in the early 1990s - Sukant Chandan, Sons of Malcolm



"This record is dedicated to some personal friends of mine, the LAPD. For every cop that has ever taken advantage of somebody, beat him down of hurt em', - because they got long hair, listen to the wrong kinda music, wrong coulor, whatever they though was the reason to do it, for everyone of those f###in' Po-lice, I'd like to take a pig right here in this parkin lot, and shoot em in their muthaf###in' face".


- Ice-T's introduction to the song.

LYRICS:


COP KILLER! YEAH!

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'll 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!
