I don't know if you can, but can you get an Owner for Ons, that's O-N-S,
Junior Market, the address is 1934 East Aneheim, all the windows are
busted out, and it's like a free-for-all in here and uh the owner should
at least come down here and see if he can secure his business-
if he wants to
April 26th, 1992
There was a riot on the streets
Tell me where were you?
You were sittin' home watchin' your TV
While I was participating in some anarchy
First spot we hit it was my liquor store
I finally got all that alcohol I can't afford
With red lights flashin' time to retire
And then we turned that liquor store into a structure fire.
Next stop we hit it was the music shop
It only took one brick to make that window drop
Finally we got our own p.a.
Where do you think I got this guitar that you're hearing today? ey!
Call fire at ??? mobile station at Alamedas and Anahiem,
its, ah, flaming up good
10-4 Alamedas and Anahiem
Homicide, never doin' no time!
When we returned to the pad to unload everything
It dawned on me that I need new home furnishings
So once again we filled the van until it was full
Since that day my livin' room's been more comfortable
Cause everybody in the hood has had it up to here
It's getting harder and harder and harder each and every year
Some kids went in a store with their mother
I saw her when she came out she was gettin some pampers
They said it was for the black man,
they said it was for the mexican
And not for the white man
But if you look at the streets
It wasn't about Rodney King
It's bout this fucked up situation and these fucked up police
It's about coming up
And staying on top
And screamin' 187 on a mother fuckin' cop
It's not written on the paper it's on the wall
Smoke from all around!
Units- Units be advised of an attempt 211 to arrest now at 938 Temple, 9-3-8
Temple, many subjects with bats trying to get inside the CB's
house...they're trying to kill him
As long as I'm alive, I'm a live illegal.
Let it burn
Wanna let it burn
Wanna let it burn
Wanna wanna let it burn
Riots on the streets of Miami
W'oh, Riots on the streets of Chicago
On the streets of Long Beach
And San Francisco (Boise Idaho)
Riots on the streets of Kansas City (Salt Lake, Huntington Beach, CA)
Tuscalusa, Alabama ( Compton Michigan)
Cleveland, Ohio (Pensacola)
Fountain Valley (Texas, Barstow - Let's do this every year),
Paramount, Victorville (Twice a Year), Eugene OR
Eureka, CA (Let it burn, let it burn)
Hesperia (Oh, ya let it burn, wont'cha wont'cha let it burn)
Santa Barbara, Nevada, Phoenix Arizona, San Diego, Lake Worth Florida
Fuckin 29 Palms.

It's "Houghton, Michigan" - not "Compton, Michigan"

|Get rid of this re-mix!
Not only an armature redoux,
it twists the facts.

|Roddney could have done what he was told to do.
Rottnie was a dumb ass freakin' moron.
I have no pity for him.
Give up. shut up.
Been there. did that.
Got out in 5 hours.
Actually, I wasn't on PCP and Crack.
And, I failed to be an ass hole.
Wanna be on PCP and Crack?
You're gonna get your head cracked.
Dude was out of line.
Lucky he didn't get shot.
I would have shot him.
Gotta know when to give up and wait for
your court appointed lawyer.
Even when you are fucked up out of your gourd on shit,
be a man and give up.

|This is about the riots that ensued after the Rodney King trial in Los Angeles, California. King was a black motorist who was beaten by 4 white police officers after they pulled him over.
The incident was videotaped by someone who lived nearby and became a huge news story, dealing with issues of police brutality and race.
The case went to trial in suburban Los Angeles where the all-white jury acquitted the officers. Just hours after the verdict, riots broke out in the black sections of the city, prompting King's famous remark: "Can't we all just get along?"
In the lyrics, lead singer Brad Nowell says, "April 26, 1992" when referring to the date of the riots in Long Beach, but the title refers to when the rioting started in Los Angeles.

|To think, this song was inspired by some guy getting his ass kicked by some crooked cops. At least something was done. Atta boy Brad, you're missed|
