The Lyrics

Dee Brown (formerly a Toronto Rapto)r said the police stopped him because he was a "brother" driving an expensive car.. the fact he blew twice the limit had nothing to do with the court throwing out the case because apparently racial profiling exists in I said. forget the facts of the case. "dey stop me cause I'm bluck" carries the day in court... this is a true story..
he was driving down the Parkway at night
he was feelin the scotch's bite
out showin of his new ride
cops said there's a a black guy inside
so lets stop him, in a racial attack
sir, you're arrested for driving while black

now with no proof this was true,
he told his lawyer what to do
and said hijack this case, the law we can steal
I'll cry it'll all seem real
if we win, i get my licence back
we'll say I was arrested for driving while black

then I went into the breathalyzer stall
and there I took the test for alcohol
to see my blood how much was in it
even though I blew twice the limit
the law we is gonna try to hijack
say they arrest me, man for drivin while black
