Know this ones dedicated to the police dem you know Liar
Cause some of them is wicked and them good for nothing
And dem love pick upon people and dem think der no right
And I man come to show you dat, alright, alright, alright, alright

So we kick it up because you

So we kick it up because you know we good to go

One for the money and three for the show
Warning for you and here's a warning for me
No bodder test the beast it coulder end up nasty
Stop you on the street without a reason

Search through your pockets under suspicion
Everybody in ya is a prime suspect
Gone are the days where they serve and protect

They said I looking like a crook and you're destined for crime
Positive police me never met much of dem
An the one's down pill cause most the problems

Look out natty dread locks you best beware
Why can't they be like the ones on the bill
Who never ever curse or they never ever kill?
