Tonight's the night that we got the truck
We're going downtown, gonna beat up drunks
Your turn to drive, I'll bring the beer
It's an easy shift, no one to fear

Let's ride, ride how we ride
Let's ride, low ride

It's roundup time where the good whores meet
We're gonna drag one screaming off the street

Let's ride, ride how we ride

Got a black uniform and a silver badge
Playing cops for real, playing cops for pay

Let's ride, low ride

Pull down your dress, here's a kick in the ass
Let's beat you blue, 'till you shit your pants
Don't move child, I gotta big black stick
There's six of us babe, so suck on my dick

Ride, ride how we ride
Ride, low ride

The left newspapers might whine a bit
But the guys at the station, they don't give a shit
Dispatch calls, "Are ya doin' somethin' wicked?"
"No siree, Jack, we're just givin' tickets!"

Let's ride, ride how we ride
Let's ride, ride how we ride
Let's ride, ride how we ride
Let's ride, low ride

    General CommentThis song points out an interesting phenomenon in San Francisco (where the DKs are from): how a city world-renowned for its liberal leanings can have one of the most fucked-up retarded asshole conservative police forces around. Constant complaints of police brutality (maybe not as high profile as LA's, but still a problem), corruption, cronyism, and generally arrogant behavior of cops, both on duty and off. We had Fajitagate (google it) out here last year and it shook the dept. to its foundation. Shit, Dan White (see the DKs parody of I Fought the Law) was a former cop, and look what he did. And there were people in SF who treated him like a big fucking hero.

    General CommentIt's a story of cops going out and beating up drunks. They then drag a hooker ofthe street and gain rape her. Then at the end it says the press might whine a bit but the people at the station don't care.
