"Cop Killer" as written by Ernest T. Cunnigan and Tracy Lauren Marrow....
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!

    General CommentJust tonight, cops gave me and my buddies shit, we were down at a BASEBALL FIELD WITH A BASEBALL BAT, NORMAL RIGHT? Well the Po decided that i was breaking shit with that baseball bat, so they pushed me against the car and searched me, and this one cop kept grabbing my ass when he was searching me,and they took our names ect, and then they insisted that we smoked weed (well we do, but still) they were giving us shit about how we shouldnt smoke weed because they KNOW THAT EVERY KID IN FALMOUTH, MA SMOKES WEED, So all i gotta say,is; -FUCK THE FALMOUTH MASSACHUSETTES POLICE-

    General CommentLyrically, this is two smoking barrels of imagery pointed straight at the corrupt LA police department. Maligned by a racist establishment (the gun-toting Charleton Heston came out of his dotage to campaign against it), "Cop Killer" stands as one of the most significant US protest songs since the early era of Dylan -- think of it as "The Times They Are A-Changin'" for an urban American audience disillusioned by the broken promise of the Civil Rights era. Better raps have been written -- Grand Master Flash's "The Message" soars above it in complexity and ambition -- but few have been as scorching.

    General CommentI like this song, but heavy metal by Ice-T is.. well... I think rap suits him better. Still its cool somehow.

    General Commentgreat song, i dont think its completely about killing cops, i think its partly a political statement, about rights and stuff, and not just i wanna fucking kill you...tho there is definetly some element of anger, hate and want to kill cops...w/e 12/10...great song
