Police and thieves in the street, oh yeah
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street, oh yeah
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition

From genesis to revelation
The next generation will be, hear me
From genesis to revelation
The next generation will be, hear me

And all the crimes come in day by day
No one stops it in any way
All the peace maker turn war officers
Hear what I say

Police and thieves in the street, oh yeah
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street, oh yeah
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition

From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be, hear me

Oh yeah
Oh yeah

And all the crime come in day by day
No one stop it in any way
All the peace maker turn war officer
Hear what I say

Police, police, police and thieve, oh yeah
Police, police, police and thieve, oh yeah
Police, police, police, police and thieve, oh yeah
Not scaring, not fighting the nation
Guns and guns and ammunition

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
