The Lyrics

The death of Freddie Gray while in the custody of Baltimore police is tragic. However, the response of looting, arson, and property destruction made things worse, not better. The well known musical artist Prince has indicated his solidarity with the protesters with his recent Baltimore song. Here is song that shows the protesters for what they really are -- thugs.
Oh, oh, oh woke up today feeling
The way I always do
Oh, oh, oh hungry for someone that I can beat
Then I hear that beat
The rhythm of town starts calling me down
It's like a message of cars upturned
Oh, oh, oh pulling me out to the thugs and the
Streets that I burn

Good morning Baltimore
Every day's like an urban war
Every night is a arsony
And I’ll blame it on bigotry
Good morning Baltimore
And today when I’m looting a store
The world's gonna wake up and see
Baltimore frenzy!

Oh, oh, oh look at my fist
What crunk can resist some crime today?
Oh, oh, oh I've got my banger and brick to throw
I'm ready to go
My peeps on the street all dance round my feet
They seem to say, "You dawg, it's up to you"
So, oh, oh don't hold me back
'Cause today all my game will come true

Good morning Baltimore
There's the homey who lives next door
There's the bum on the barroom floor
They wish me luck on my way to score
Good morning Baltimore
And today when I’m looting a store
The world's gonna wake up and see
Baltimore frenzy

I know every step, I know every song
I know there's a place where I belong
I see all those popo lights shining ahead
Will someone invite me, lets go bust some heads
So, oh, oh give me a chance
In my low riding pants, I'm a hip-hop star
Oh, oh, oh something inside of me makes me loot
It’s hands up, don’t shoot
My feet want to go but my mom tells me no
It's like a playa inside my heart
So, oh, oh don't make me wait
One more moment for my life to start

I love you Baltimore
Every day's like an urban war
Every night is a arsony
And I’ll blame it on bigotry
Good morning Baltimore
And today when I’m looting a store
The world's gonna wake up and see
Gonna wake up and see Baltimore frenzy
(Yes, more or less we all agree)
Baltimore frenzy!
(Someday the world is gonna see)
Baltimore frenzy!
