Eh, soundbwoy
People Aclike they don't know
Watch de echo cos
Laila gonna flip the script and rip
Tell em how it is

The media skews the views that they see
Bad bwoy breaking the law to smoke weed
Chew up on a mushroom and pop some pills
But will they go to hell for being such criminals? No
Manchester Evening News is wasting our time
To shop a dealer go and dial 999
Why would they wanna castigate the thin blue line
To get Billy in his bedroom like a kingpin of crime...

I call experience the things you've done
Not what you read about inside the Sun
More than one point of view but I think you'll find
They've aleady made up their so called mind

They wanna lock em all up
Theres only one way of life
They want em in a chaingang
And thats their own
They wanna send em all back
Nothing but a bit of discipline
They wanna watch them hang
And there not even fucking listening

They read it in the news so it must be right
They jump inna de fire if they say so
Someones gonna shop a dealer tonight
I! People aclike they don't know
They read it in the news so it must be true,
They choose, to formulate their views
By what they choose to tell you in the news
What you gonna do when they come for you?

I once met a girl called Moira
Sold a little baggy that she cut from a quarter
They didnt want it being near to her daughter
So they telephone police to report her (SAY WHAT?)
That trick is uglier than janet Street Porter oh gosh

That criminal is minimal but they won't understand
The when and whys to legalise the weed in every land
Without the information they won't differentiate
Between a kid thats slinging baggys and a dealer dealing weight

They wanna lock em all up
Theres only one way of life
They want em in a chaingang
And thats their own
They wanna send em all back
Nothing but a bit of discipline
They wanna watch them hang
And there not even fucking listening

They read it in the news so it must be right
He's hardly fucking Tony Soprano
Someones gonna shop a dealer tonight
I! People aclike they don't know
They read it in the news so it must be true,
They choose, to formulate their views
By what they choose to tell you in the news
What you gonna do when they come for you?

Its true, they choose, to formulate their views
By what they choose to tell you in the news
What you gonna do when they come for you?

Its true, they choose, to formulate their views
By what they choose to tell you in the news
What you gonna do when they come for you?

Its true, they choose, to formulate their views
By what they choose to tell you in the news
What you gonna do when they come for you?

WHATCHA GONNA DO?!?!

They wanna lock em all up
Theres only one way of life
They want em in a chaingang
And thats their own
They wanna send em all back
Nothing but a bit of discipline
They wanna watch them hang
And there not even fucking listening

They read it in the news so it must be right
They jump inna de fire if they say so
Someones gonna shop a dealer tonight
I! People aclike they don't know
They read it in the news so it must be true,
They choose, to formulate their views
By what they choose to tell you in the news
What you gonna do when they come for you?
Laila gonna flip the script and rip tell'em like it is now.
