The Lyrics

Rodney King recently died, found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool. Very sad. That infamous day. That infamous beating caught on a camcorder that changed LA and the way LAPD interacts with the multicultural communities. As King said, "He was no saint", but his tragedy turned to triumph in social change for the better. RIP Rodney...
[LAPD Spoken]
We know you've been drinking, yeah
We've been chasing you, yeah
We know you wanna get up, yeah
GET DOWN, NIGGER!!!

[Chorus]
Beat his body, batons were swinging
Beat his body, broken bones from kicking
Beat his body, police were tasing
Beat his body, tried to kill Rodney King

LAPD outta control
Rodney King had no place to go
Beaten every kind of way
They wanted him to run away
(So they could shoot him- blow him away)

He had no defense
Until the taping commenced
Was seen in public view
What racist police do

Beat his body, batons were swinging
Beat his body, broken bones from kicking
Beat his body, police were tasing
Beat his body, tried to kill Rodney King

Rodney King was broken inside
But the Blacks didn’t let it slide
Gonna burn L.A. down to the ground
55 died until the riots calmed down

Conduct changed over time
But King still had a troubled mind
His body had been broken
He was left with mixed emotions

Beat his body, batons were swinging
Beat his body, broken bones from kicking
Beat his body, police were tasing
Beat his body, tried to kill Rodney King

Beat his body, batons were swinging
Beat his body, broken bones from kicking
Beat his body, police were tasing
Beat his body, tried to kill Rodney King

Felt the sting, beating changed everything
Felt the sting, beating changed everything
Felt the sting, beating changed everything

[LAPD Spoken]
We know you've been drinking, yeah, yeah
I‘ll bet you‘re really scared, we've been chasing you
High-speed zoom, yeah, yeah
We’re gonna kill you, go on and try to defend yourself
Yeah, yeah
GET DOWN, GET DOWN, GET DOWN NIGGER!!!

Beat his body, batons were swinging
Beat his body, broken bones from kicking
Beat his body, police were tasing
Beat his body, tried to kill Rodney King

LAPD outta control
Rodney King had no place to go
Beaten every kind of way
They wanted him to run away
(So they could shoot him- blow him away)

Beat his body, batons were swinging
Beat his body, broken bones from kicking
Beat his body, police were tasing
Beat his body, tried to kill Rodney King
[Repeat and Fade]

(Harsh beating, tried to kill Rodney King)
[in background]

Tells it like it was...now that he's died, mysteriously, and not too different from Whitney, Swim pool instead of a bathtub..I'm wondering just how thorough the LAPD will check out the details..

Maybe the swimming pool beat him to death.

Rodeny had his demons and cetainly was traumatized by the beating incident for life, but realy loved the therapy of his pool and skateboarding. His neighbors liked him. At this point no proof of any alcohol or drugs nor foul play. But it is sad that he is gone. If not for that beating who knows how far and unjust LAPD and other Police Depts around the nation would have gone torturing and tormenting minorities with immunity. I remember when this happened and the reprecussions felt even way up here in Sacramento (Northern California). Up here we have a problem with police shootings. So far 11-12 people killed by Police which is being investigated. It seems our police like to shoot first and ask questions last or never. We've had disabled shot to death and unarmed minors, so the question of use of lethal force is valid. At least King changes the multicultural relations between LAPD and LA's minority communities (to what degree I cannot say b/c I do not live there)...
I Remember Now - June 21, 2012 - Report this comment
Very good parody. I remember when it happened. Rodney was driving drunk and he should've been pulled over. He was cuffed and arrested. What happened after that was police brutality and racial profiling. There were riots in several cities and the rioters and victims were from every race. The cops who beat up Rodney are not the LAPD or even police. They are corrupt pigs who hid behind the badges that they disgraced.
