HANDS UP!

A police dog was after Corey

Elias was running away

Poor Rodney just sat in his ca-ar

All threatening so-o they say

Chorus:

Hands Up, Hands Up

Hands Up and they won’t shoot May-be (spoken)

Hands Up, Hands Up

Hands Up and you can breathe May-be (spoken)

Do you always stand up for the anthem?

Or like Colin, do you take a knee?

In the year since he started kneeling

Black deaths by cops hit 2-2-3

CHORUS

I’ve heard people say “White lives matter”

I’m sure you’ve heard the same line

When your child is killed for a BB gun

I will certainly hold up that sign

CHORUS

Remember their names with tee shirts

Remember by taking a knee

Remember them at every protest

Just see racist cops don’t go free

CHORUS

Oh what will it take to stop them

These well-armed so scared boys in blue

Re-training, fight back, or fire them

Perhaps when it happens to you

Hands Up, Hands Up

Hands Up and they won’t shoot May-be (spoken)

Hands Up, Hands Up

Hands Up and you can breathe May-be (spoken)
