"Bank Robber Man" as written by and Lenny Albert Kravitz....
I was walking down the street today
Just as somebody blew the doors off of the be of A
Just then I head them call my name
As I was thrown against the car
I was being framed

All units we've got our man
We've got the bank robber man
We don't need no reason
You're going in the can
You look like the bank robber man
I think you misunderstand
Do you think that I am the one that did it
Just because I'm tan?
Just then the officer at hand said
I don't give a damn that you are in a rock and roll band

All units we've got our man
We've got the bank robber man
We don't need no reason
You're going in the can
You look like the bank robber man

Just tell me what's going on ?
Can you tell me what I did wrong ?
Does busting me make you feel strong ?
Make you feel strong

All units we've got our man
We've got the bank robber man
We don't need no reason
You're going in the can
You look like the bank robber man

    General CommentIn an interview lenny mentioned this song was about when he went for a walk one day and on the same day a bank was broken into. As lenny was walking down the very street the bank was on he was arrested basically because he was black and the police said he matched the robbers description.
