"Did You Hear What They Said?" as written by and Gil Scott Heron....
Did you hear what they said,
Did you hear what they said,
Did you hear what they said,
They said another brother's dead,
They said he's dead, but he can't be buried,
They said he's dead, but he can't be buried,
Come on, come on, come on, come on
This can't be real.

Did you hear what they said,
Did you hear what they said,
Did you hear what they said,
They said, they shot him in his head,
A shot in the head to save his country,
A shot in the head to save his country,
Come on, come on, come on, come on
This can't be real.

Did you hear what they said,
Yeah did you hear what they said,
Did you hear what they said,
About his mother and how she cried,
They said she cried, 'cause her only son was dead
They said she cried, 'cause her only son was dead
Woman, could you imagine if your only son was dead
And somebody told you, he couldn't be buried,
Hey, hey, come on, come on, come on, come on
This can't be real.
