Inner City life
is getting me down
Poliece and gang wars
all over town
Closing down our clubs
for no good reason
Hassle us on the street
take away our freedoms

Oh oh we want a riot
Oh oh so sick and tired

Here come the riot squad
they're closing in
guns and riot shields
and gas grenades
they see us standing there
all in a line
black and white unite
confrontations high

Oh oh we want a riot
Oh oh were sick and tired
Oh oh leave us alone

They have a justice bill
that's what they say
now They have the power now
to put us away
there were four of us
minding our own
We're a riotous assembly
Walking down the road

Oh oh we want a riot
Oh oh so sick and tired
Oh oh we wanna riot
Oh oh leave us alone!
