    They were bad again last night
    Evening News reports a fight
    Drawing pistols left and right
    Bodies found in morning light

    Folks on Dodge don’t go to bed
    Thought they’d have a drink instead
    Said some things were best unsaid
    Massive bruises to the head

    In the papers everyday
    Being handcuffed and led away
    They don’t mind a prison stay
    Just plain bad and full of hate

    Robbing folks and shooting up
    Won’t act right no matter what
    You would think they’d had enough
    Doing wrong and being tough

    Don’t start nothing won’t be none
    Somebody got a can of some
    Started fires one by one
    Millions in damage when they were done

    Mama taught me crime don’t pay
    Be good and out of trouble stay
    Treat people the golden way
    Don’t go round where bad kids play

    Babies cussing before they talk
    Kicking butt before they walk
    Spank that butt against the law
    How we gonna win this war

    Some of who should be protecting
    Out with criminals connecting
    Justice system no one’s respecting
    Down destructive path we’re heading

    Living in a world of strife
    Makes you kind of feel uptight
    Folks don’t value precious life
    Yes they were bad again last night

    Very Nice. True so true. All of it. What gets me is the fear the parents have against spanking their children. We as voters can change this. If the parent are out of control.. then they should be sited for child abuse. A good spanking never killed anyone. It seems to be part of some plan. To break down the fiber of society. Corruption starts from the top. Our elected officials are wrong. From the white house to our house. Those fortunate to move their children to the suburbs and keep them in music, and dance classes are buying their protection. Somethings in the water. Nobody is complaining.. or talking about the real right and wrong of laws.
