Le Tigre Bang! Bang! Lyrics

[Newscaster]
In New York, the shooting of another unarmed black man
Raises further questions about NYPD tactics
On Thursday, an undercover police officer shot and killed Patrick Dorismond

[Verse 1]
Murder is murder
Why are they confused?
Another man dead
I read it in the news
Who gave them the fucking right
To run around like they own the night?

[Chorus]
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh

[Verse 2]
Wrong fucking time
Wrong fucking place
There is no fucking way
This is not about race
Who's gonna call 9-1-1
When they can't tell a wallet
From a mother fucking gun?

[Chorus]
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh

[Outro]
Bang bang daddy I want you dead
Bang bang fucker get out of my head
Bang bang daddy I want you dead
Bring me Giuliani's head

[Chorus]
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh bang! bang!
Oh

[Newscaster]
Since the shootings, police have changed their account of what happened that night
The shooting has angered many community members, especially after four NYPD officers were acquitted last month
In the shooting of unarmed African immigrant Amadou Diallo
