911 Is A Joke Lyrics

Artist: Public Enemy
Album: Fear Of A Black Planet

Hit me
Going going gone
Now I dialed 911 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 embalm the goner
They don't care 'cause they stay paid anyway
They teach ya like an ace they can't be betrayed
I know you stumble with no use people
If your life is on the line they you're dead today
Late comings with the late comin' stretcher
That's a body bag in disguise y'all betcha
I call 'em body snatchers quick they come to fetch ya?
With an autopsy ambulance just to dissect ya
They are the kings 'cause they swing amputation
Lose your arms, your legs to them it's compilation
I can prove it to you watch the rotation
It all adds up to a funky situation
So get up get, get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up, get, get, get down
Late 911 wears the late crown

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 in 8 9-11
Was a joke 'cause they 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 your 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

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

Ow, ow 911 is a joke

by joker on 1/6/2009 2:49pm
you should see how many sites copied the lyrics off this site! At least this site's got a place to react. First time I tried to write the lyrics down, that's what I heard, too.

The funniest part is that every PE album actually comes with full lyrics I believe, including this one

I love how this guy above me is "Nigga Love" even though PE wrote a song "I ain't yo nigga" criticizing the use of the word even in non-derogatory terms. Sorry, couldn't help it. I love the irony =)

It's also "...f*cked up situation", not "funky".

Gotta love the Walmart version lyrics websites.

Worst lyrics transcription ever.

Just go to for the real 411.

Peace out, yo.

Actually, the printed lyrics that came with the album agrees mostly with the lyrics on this site, and not the posters'. The text here says "I know you stumble with no use people" - you say "a no use number with no use people", but the lyrics that came with the album says this site is right. Also, the lyrics that came with the album says "funky situation" not "fucked up situation". But then again, the lyrics that came with the album might be wrong too, or he might have song something else on the album than what he wrote when he wrote it.

Anyone that's ever listened to music and read along with lyrics will notice that there are MANY changes that were made during final recording... especially when it comes to 'free style' rap that can change in a motherfuckin heartbeat.
