[I don't know if you can, but can you get an order 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 29th, 1992 
There was a riot on the streets 
Tell me where were you?
You were sittin' home watchin' your TV
While I was paticipating in some anarchy
First spot we hit it was my liqour store
I finally got all the 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 PA
Where do you think I got this guitar that you're hearing today?

(Cuz' as long as I'm alive, I'm alive ill B)

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 'til it was full 
Since that day my livin' room's been much 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 
A girl went in the store with her mother and kids and
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
But not for the white man
And if you look at the streets, it's not about Rodney King
It's this fucked-up situation and these fucked-up police
It's about comin' up and stayin' on top
And screamin' 187 on a motherfuckin' cop
It's ain't the papers it's on the wall
Saw National Guard
Smoke from all around

[Any unit, any unit...]
(Homicide, never doin' no time)

Give me my share my share
Gimme my share, I want it
Gimme my share I need it now 
I need it now
But there is a wicked one
Who dosent wanna see me go
Just gimme my share, I want it 
Gimme my share
But you don't want to give it to me
you don't wanna see me go
Gimme my share, I want it
Gimme my share
But there is a wicked one wicked one
He doesn't want me to go
There is a wicked one wicked one
A wicked wicked one
Doesn't want to see me go
He wants to hold it
He wants to hold it
Let it burn let it burn
Let it burn let it burn

[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]

[Need a unit to... structure fire and numerous subjects looting]

[10-15 to get rid of this looter]
