The Lyrics

Here's a song about the current COVID-19 pandemic.
You should've been stayed home (Yeah)
The things are decreased (Yeah)
We thought it was a virus (What?)
They wanted to get Zoom (Damn)
Them online was truth (Ooh)
Who said it was a virus? Goddamn lie

Oh my
Time heals all, but you out of time now (Now)
Judge gotta watch us from the livestream (True)
Lil' tear gas cleared the whole place out
I'll be back with the vaccine for the next round
We was tryna protest, then the death broke out
Look out for the sacred mask, they be planted in the face
Said, "It's civil unrest," but you sleep so sound
Like you don't hear the fear when we catchin' beatdowns?
Stayin' quiet when they killin' niggas, but you speak loud
When we riot, got opinions comin' from a place of privilege
Sicker than the COVID how they did him on the ground
Speakin' of the COVID, is it still goin' around?
And won't you tell me 'bout the lootin'? What's that really all about?
'Cause they throw away black lives like they kept
Plus unemployment rate, what, forty million now?
Killed a man in broad day, might never see a trial
We just wanna break chains like slaves in the South
Started in the North End but we in the downtown
Riot cops tried to block, now we got a showdown
(Citizens of Los Angeles) Down
(I hereby declare this to be an unlawful assembly)
(And in the name of the people of the State of California)

You should've been stayed home (Command all those assembled)
The things are decreased (Right here)
We thought it was a virus
They wanted to get Zoom (Ooh)
Them online was truth
(Virus, we ain't gotta stop because they tell us to)
Who said it was a virus? Goddamn lie

And livestream, where I got popped with the big mask
Tre pound, got it in my name now, I'ma stayed alive

Turn on your tube dawg, look how they do us
Knee on your stream, be stayin alive
Stimulus checks strictly for blacks
History repeatin', people scared to get the vaccinee
Everybody goin' vegan, what they put in it?
Look at the world we livin' in, they got it shook
And then you go on your jog
Then your pandemic might get you took
And yet the man in the mirror
Can't look away, you gotta look at it
Movie stars died
So what it means when they had to be alive?
Generation, genocide
What happened to the old man?
Heard the man infiltrated
Betty White, re-energize
Ain't nothin' to figure out, they tryna kill us out
If I take a kneel, see my fist? I'm a old girl now
Just think, bullshit, you gotta filter out
Are you really ready for the smoke
Like a Golden house?
Ready for the revolution, who ready to ride?
It won't be televised
So tell me, who ready to die?
If downtown goin' up
Where we at with the shits?
We at the liquor store, nigga
'Bout to get us a fifth
Know they 'bout to start lootin'
Grab the gloves and masks
Watch out for the channels
When they rollin' past, yeah

Uh, okay
Never understand why they do it
Someone had to watch old TV 'fore I lose it (Nah)
I ain't even trippin', if you wit' it, then we lootin' (Nah)
Help me put this food in the back of Toyota (Ooh), o-he
Had to kill it down so smoothly (Smooth)
They gon' say, "It's not about race," but we movin' (Fuckin') ho, power
Copped the tre pound, had to put that in my name
Wish a nigga play now (Yeah)
Any given day, I'll be headed to being dead (Yeah)
Say a lil' prayer, matter fact, I need two of 'em, ooh
Won't he do it? Won't he do it?
Ooh, this ain't '92 so we into new rules
Niggas got hip, so we don't loot the projects
'Bout to hit Toyota with my lil' cousin David
Someone threw a whole brick with Dick Van Dyke (Ah)
Help me put the whole mannequin in the Charger

You should've been stayed home (Down)
The things are decreased (Look around)
We thought it was a virus (Lockdown)
They wanted to get Zoom (Had to get low, fire)
Them online was truth (Down, down)
Who said it was a virus? Goddamn lie (Ooh-wee)

Virus, we ain't gotta stop 'cause they tell us to
Livestream, where I got popped with the online section
Tre pound (Uh), got it in my name now, I'ma shoot it
Virus, we ain't gotta stop 'cause they tell us to
The end! We knew the original song and the parody song both about the current pandemic.
