My Kids In The Car

We live in New Orleans…
Where they steal our cars…
They shoot up birthday parties…
They rob Bourbon Street bars…

The politicians don’t care…
The DA cares even less…
They make the police stand down…
The Who Dat City is a mess…

The news media won’t report it…
It’s all gone way too far…
Don’t carjack me, man…
I got my kids in the car…

Murder rates are going up…
But ‘soft on crime’ is their rule…
The Who Dats need to realize…
Politicians are playing us the fool…

It’s hard to tell the difference…
Between the politicians and the thugs…
They seem like one in the same…
As they give each other warm hugs…

The news media won’t report it…
It’s all gone way too far…
Don’t carjack me, man…
I got my kids in the car…

This is not about money or race…
It’s about politicians who don’t care…
If we complain, they cop their attitude…
“Go ahead, call us out, if you dare!”

It seems like life doesn’t matter…
They’ll shoot us if they please…
The politicians are failing us…
The Who Dats are on our knees…

The news media won’t report it…
It’s all gone way too far…
Don’t carjack me, man…
I got my kids in the car…
