Lyrics

[Chorus] Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast (Yes indeed) Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast (Yes indeed) [Verse 1] Stand clear, Don man'll talk You can't stand where I stand, you can't walk where I walk Watch out, we run New York Policeman come, we bust him out the park I know this for a fact, you don't like how I act You claim I'm sellin' crack, but you be doin' that I'd rather say see ya, ‘cause I would never be ya Be an officer? You wicked overseer! You hotshot, wanna get props and be a savior First show a little respect, change your behavior Change your attitude, change your plan There could never really be justice on stolen land Are you really for peace and equality? Or when my car is hooked up, you know you wanna follow me Your laws are minimal ‘Cause you won't even think about lookin' at the real criminal This has got to cease ‘Cause we be getting hyped to the sound of da police [Chorus] Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast [Verse 2] Now here's a likkle truth, open up your eye While you're checkin' out the boom-bap, check the exercise Take the word overseer, like a sample Repeat it very quickly in a crew, for example Overseer, overseer, overseer, overseer Officer, officer, officer, officer Yeah, officer from overseer You need a little clarity? Check the similarity! The overseer rode around the plantation The officer is off, patrollin' all the nation The overseer could stop you, "What you're doing?" The officer will pull you over just when he's pursuing The overseer had the right to get ill And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill The officer has the right to arrest And if you fight back they put a hole in your chest (Woop!) They both ride horses After 400 years, I've got no choices The police them have a likkle gun So when I'm on the streets, I walk around with a bigger one (Woop-woop!) I hear it all day Just so they can run the light and be upon their way [Break] Yes indeed Yes indeed Yes indeed Yes indeed [Chorus] Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast [Verse 3] Check out the message in a rough stylee The real criminal are the C-O-P You check for undercover and the one P.D But just a mere Black man, them wan' check me Them check out me car, for it shine like the sun But them jealous or them vexed, ‘cause them can't afford one Black people still slaves up 'til today But the Black police officer nyah see it that way Him want a salary, him want it So he put on a badge and kill people for it My grandfather had to deal with the cops My great-grandfather dealt with the cops My great-grandfather had to deal with the cops And then my great, great, great, great—when it's gonna stop?! [Chorus] Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast [Break] Yes indeed Yes indeed Yes indeed Yes indeed [Chorus] Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police Woop-woop! That's the sound of da beast
