about

Featuring Paul Mabin on vocals and vocal arrangements.

lyrics

People have you met the new Jim Crow?
The bottle is new but the wine is old

Some things in life just never change
Like the Babylon system and how they run their game

They used to swing black bodies from the trees
Now they lock em in a cell and they throw away the keys

Ghetto youths don’t really stand a chance
Every single day is like a dangerous match

Look out son, it’s time to run
Cause the cops are rolling up and they pulling out (reaching for) their guns
And we’re singing

Stop and Frisk
We are at risk
Brown or black
Better watch your back
The police dem a come and launch dey attack
People don’t you know that the new Jim Crow has got to go
We’ve got to overthrow
The new Jim Crow

Let me introduce the new Jim Crow
Different channel, different time slot
But the same old show

Nowadays it’s a crime if you don’t look "right"
They can snatch you from the street any day or night

In a system that feeds it’s poor to the rich
The taser gun has replaced the switch

They say just work hard and you can live the dream
Then they beat us in the streets
Bring us down to our knees
So this is what we singin’

Stop and Frisk
We are at risk
Brown or black
Better watch your back
The police dem a come and launch dey attack
People don’t you know that the new Jim Crow has got to go
We’ve got to overthrow
The new Jim Crow
