Original Performer:

Roy Orbison

Parody Song Title:

"Things Go Better with Body Cameras"

Parody Written by:

Robert D. Arndt Jr.

The Lyrics

B-O-D-Y C-A-M-E-R-A-S
Things go better with body cameras
Safety for cops and folks

Cameras record and thus protect
Moods swing less, its all for the best,
between White Cops and Black folks
Police gun less likely to put a hole in you
When all actions are in view

Things go better with body cameras
Less chance of slips
That'll get a badge revoked

B-O-D-Y C-A-M-E-R-A-S
Things go better with body cameras
They cover ranges and angles
Black men no need to be beaten nor choked

as I told the one yesterday who wrote "Badge In My Hand" I think the police get a bit of a bad rep these days there are some crooked cops out there but they certainly aren't all racist murderers that being said thank you for parodying a better song (Roy Orbison is leagues ahead of Eric Church!) I just had finished a Diet Coke w/ Splenda before coming to read this! 545

Thanks Jon. You might wanna try Popsoda.com. They have the Coke and Dr. Pepper bottles with the cane sugar plus loads of exotic sodas...

Well, one way or the other, having the records from those cameras does have a way of helping keep such incidents from undergoing instant revisionist history, not that this always stops yellow journalists from trying.

They are just the beginning. Soon cop drones and news drones will be loitering overhead ready to catch anything. London police do well because the city is blanketed with CCTVs. The avg citizen is photographed 300 times a day!

Even with the cameras, a lot of citizens get abused. Sometimes the police are vindicated, too. Not sure I want a lot of drones following me around. Bottle rocket time again.
