911 Is A Joke

911 Is A Joke

Duran Duran

Now I dialed 911 a long time ago
don't you see how late they reactin'
They only come when they come when they wanna go
get the morgue truck and then bag the goner
They don't care cause they get paid
anyway they treat you like an ace that can't be betrayed
I know you's know with no use people if your life is on the line,
then you're dead today
Late comers and the late comers stretcher
that's a body bag in disguise y'all I'll betcha
I call 'em body snatchers quick they come to fetch you
With a autopsy ambulance just to dissect ya
They are the kings 'cos they swing amputation
lose your arms your legs the famous compilation
I can prove it to you watch the rotation
it all adds up to a funky situation

Get up get, get, get down 911 is a joke in yo town
Get up get, get, get down late 911 wears the late crown
Get up get, get, get down 911 is a joke in yo town
Get up get, get, get down late 911 wears the late crown
911 is a joke, 911 is a joke

Everyday they don't ever come correct
you can ask my man right here with the broken neck
He's a witness to the job never bein'
done he would've been in full effect
911 is a joke cause their always jokin'
they the token to your life when it's croakin'
They need to be in a pawn shop
on a 911 is a joke we don't want 'em
I'll call a cab 'cause a cab will come quicker
the doctors huddle up and call a flea flicker
The reason that I say that 'cause they flick you off like fleas
They be laughin' at ya while you're crawlin' on our knees
And to the strength, so go the length
thinkin' you are first when you really are tenth
You better wake up and smell the real flavor
cause 911 is a fake life saver

Get up get, get, get down 911 is a joke in yo town
Get up get, get, get down late 911 wears the late crown
Get up get, get, get down 911 is a joke in yo town
Get up get, get, get down late 911 wears the late crown
911 is a joke, 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke
Get up get, get, get down 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke
Get up get, get, get down 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke, 911 is a joke
Get up get, get, get down
