The Lyrics

A recap of the Monday night Baltimore riots after Freddie Gray's service.
Came night
The time when crowds came out, to pick a fight
For their rights
For doomed Freddie Gray who lost his life
Justice due, oh, crowd turned wild
Then bricks and bottles flew (bricks and bottles flew)

The youths all knew that the police had lied
"No idea what happened?" Hell, that's no surprise
Police barbarity never justified

(Chorus)
West Baltimore, yeah, it burned in the night
And over a hundred cars also were set alight
15 officers did go down, no one cared 'bout their plight
The violence had spread for miles
Had spread for miles...
Smoke in the air, soot black, CVS burned
Masked hoods cut hoses as best as they could
Pennsylvania-Fulton crowds, packed in so tight
The violence had spread for miles
Had spread for miles...

Overload
Looting and arson incidents overflowed
Fury explodes
Mondawmin Mall, transport robbers on the road, yeah, well
Tough sh-t, BPD knew the community was out and about
Trash cans were hurled, obscenities heard

Tired of all the police lies
Murder was not justified
Seems everybody's hands are tied... all the time
(Did Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ever cry?)

(Chorus)

"Y'all go home!"
Vet Valentine stood strong
"Just go home!"
(Won't be satisfied... anyway)

West Baltimore, yeah, it burned in the night
And over a hundred cars also were set alight
15 officers did go down, no one cared 'bout their plight
The violence had spread for miles
Had spread for miles...

I take care of the recaps. You're redundant. Stop poaching on my territory. Get another hobby. Like writing parodies.
X - April 30, 2015 - Report this comment
I thought Wolf's hobby was pondering his German-Jewish heritage!!! The guy flips out every time someone interviewed compares America to Nazi Germany; and, of course, debating Israel's every move by second-guessing Netanyahu!

You got a problem with me, Rob? Today, you're "X." Yesterday, you were "Salt." You're just having a worse week than usual. Give yourself a few more straight 5s. That'll cheer you up.

Yeah, I do have a problem with your false accusations. Today is April 30th which is Hitler's suicide day and I DID sign as X because I didn't want a thread drift to start with the German-Jewish rebuttal. But I am definitely NOT Salt- the opposite as proven by my many anti-police parodies including the one above. And voting is again up to the raters. I'm having a great week BTW. "Avengers 2" tomorrow !!! Have a nice day "WB"... thanks for the double standard on parodies based on news reports. Almost everyone here has done them in one form or another. Luckily, your opinion is your own.

My condolences. To the rest of you: "Happy Hitler Suicide Day!"

WB, why don't you take a vacation in E Baltimore starting tomorrow around the time when the community doesn't get any official news of Freddie's death? Wear a costume police uniform. BTW, anyone who knows history would be celebrating VE-Day in a week...security code is 9AD when the German tribe Cherusci slaughtered 3 Roman Legions in Teutoburg Forrest under Arminius (Hermann the German)!!!
Publius Quinctilius Varus - April 30, 2015 - Report this comment
I'm still pissed off. I give Arminius a Roman military education, and what does he do with it? He deceives me by joining Germanic tribes and predicting the Roman army's tactical responses. May 8, VE Day. I'm celebrating by tossing confetti and Anderson Cooper out of my window. Wolf and I will go to E. Baltimore in gladiator suits just to show the Gay community we haven't forgotten them.
