911 is a joke, Public Enemy

Now I dialed nine one one a long time ago
Don’t you see how late they’re reactin’
They only come, and they come when they wanna
So get the morgue truck ’em back the goner
They don’t care ’cause they stay paid anyway
They treat you like an ace that can’t be betrayed
I know you stumble with no use people
If your life is on the line, then you’re dead today

Late comings with the late comin’ stretcher -
That’s a body bag in disguise - y’all I’ll betcha
I call ’em body snatchers
Quick they come to fetch you -
With an autopsy ambulance just to dissect ya

They are the kings ’cos they swing amputation
Lose your arms your legs the famous compilation
I can prove it to you watch the rotation
It all adds up to a funky situation

Get up, get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up, get get down
Late 911 wears the late crown


911 is a joke , 911 is a joke

Everyday they don’t never come correct
You can ask my man right here with the broken neck
He’s a witness to the job never bein’ done
He would’ve been in full effect , 911
Is a joke because their always jokin’
They the token to your life when it’s croakin’
They need to be in a pawn shop on a 911 -
Is a joke we don’t want ’em

I call a cab ’cause a cab will come quicker
The doctors huddle up and call a flea flicker
The reason that I say that ’cause they
Flick you off like fleas
They be laughin’ at ya while you’re crawlin’ on our knees
And to the strength, so go the length
Thinkin’ you are first when you really are tenth
You better wake up and smell the real flavor
Cause 911 is a fake life saver

(chorus) (chorus)

Ow, ow 911 is a joke
911 is a joke,
911 is a joke,
911 is a joke, 911 is a joke.
(get up, get get down)
911 is a joke, 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke
(get up, get get down)
911 is a joke, 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke
(get up, get get down)

Ooooh, yeahh

Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant shit to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain
Mother fuck him and John Wayne
Cause I'm Black and I'm proud
I'm ready and hyped plus I'm amped
Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps
Sample a look back you look and find
Nothing but rednecks for 400 years if you check
Don't worry be happy
Was a number one jam
Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
(Get it) lets get this party started right
Right on, c'mon
What we got to say
Power to the people no delay
To make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be

Fight the Power!
