Clap For The Killers Submit Correct Lyrics

Now can you clap for the killers? Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers, double up for them gangsters

Well, I wrote this for criminals but all of y'all should listen at me
Now if you ever catch me snitchin' just haul off and slap me
They on the other team, let's rumble, is my thoughts exactly
They work for gangsters and they whacked Fred Hampton Jr.'s pappy

Ay playboy, pop 'em with a pistol and get executed
Ay mama, murder 'em with missiles and you get saluted
Go head and gank 'em for a grand its DNA computed
But bankers bathe in the Bahamas off of billions looted

Now can you clap? Now can you clap?
Now can you clap for them killers? Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers, double up for them gangsters

Well, I wrote this for criminals but they the ones who wrote the laws
They ain't on TV gettin' arrested all up in their draws
They stick their hands up politicians make 'em move their jaws
And they be starvin' folks for bread until their breath pause

Ay, take a memo money penny, say the deed is done
And you can Bcc DC and say our leaders won
But first we fax the photograph of the opponent's son
Adjust the image 'cause it's hard to see the gag and gun

Now can you clap? Now can you clap?
Now can you clap? Now can you clap?
Now can you clap for them killers? Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers, double up for them gangsters

Well, I wrote this for gangsters
While I sprinted through your backyard
Not for them Coppola criminals, they just act hard
Tony Montana had a stylist and a SAG card
When he reloaded slaves forgot they had back scars

Ay mister DeNiro, what kind of gun is that?
Can you look more like a menace? Take two now run it back
Ay, so what Scorsese got all them money stacks
Long as his lens never looks at the real maniacs

Clap for them killers? Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers, double up for them gangsters
Can you clap for them killers? Give it up for them gangsters
One time for the killers, double up for them gangsters

BOOTS RILEY, TOM MORELLO
