Sound of Da Police Lyrics

Artist: KRS-One
Album: Return Of The Boom Bap


That's the sound of da police!
That's the sound of the beast!

Verse One:

Stand clear! Don man a-talk
You can't stand where I stand, you can't walk where I walk
Watch out! We run New York
Police man 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 a officer? You WICKED overseer!
Ya hotshot, wanna get props and be a saviour
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!


Verse Two:

Now here's a likkle truth
Open up your eye
While you're checking out the boom-bap, check the exercise
Take the word "overseer," like a sample
Repeat it very quickly in a crew for example
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 patroling 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 little 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


Verse Three:

Check out the message in a rough stylee
The real criminals are the C-O-P
You check for undercover and the one PD
But just a mere Black man, them want 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 nah 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?!

by Sheri on 2/15/2010 2:50am
This is not an original song. It is a Rage Against the Machine cover, word for word. It's a nice cover but doesn't really show what "a great lyricist" KRS One is.
by bee on 2/22/2010 9:53pm
sheri.... i can't tell if you are being silly or not. by utilizing the magical "internet", you can find out about everything..... ever. via google, i spent two whole minutes learning krs one first released this song in 1993, and rage against the machine started covering it live around 1996. so, welcome to the future!
by Name on 3/1/2010 5:57pm
Awsome song but sadly its all true
by sheri'sdumb on 4/30/2010 5:49am

What a hypocrite. He participates in a stop the violence movement and then sings about shooting cops. This guy needs to go to jail.
by C_Miller on 2/20/2011 2:22pm
vlack- you have the whole internet. look at the context of the song, and look at his interviews. then post dumb comments if you must.
by you idiots on 3/16/2011 2:08pm
You morons shout out ACAB, ACAS, $#%@ the popo, etc and then who do you call when some JA robs your mom, wrecks into your car, or takes your crap? I'm not saying you should kiss their butt, but show some gratitude and respect for men and women who put theirs on the line to protect yours and don't even know you.

Great oldie ..ain't heard it for years till a snip in a film called "Attack the Block" released this year. Yup it's a 'black song' (don't mean to offend here) but it has so much significance to all regardless of race or colour has more significance as time goes on ...just look at the shit being dished out on Wall street ...."Your laws are minimal,
Cause you won't even think about lookin' at the real criminal
This has got to cease." ...sums it up for everyone, white and black eh.

Hard but true lyric seems outrageously to be truer in 2016. The Lakota know about justice on stolen land. The numbers of innocent black US citizens murdered by the people supposedly employed to protect them. Overseer / officer. Respect to KRS1 for voicing it. Respect to the respectfull. Peace to the Peaceful.
