Hands up

By Eddie
Hands Up!
By Eddie Russell

As I was walking down the street
Trying to pass the time
I was startled by somebody close behind
When I turned around to see who it could be
There was a man in blue following me
I asked him why he was on my trail
He said, “Don’t get smart or you’re going to jail”
As I looked at him, I was getting scared
Then he looked at me and this is what he said:

Hands Up! Don’t you move
Or I’m gonna do something
I don’t have to prove
Hands Up! You better not sway
Or you may not live another day
Hands Up! Turn yourself around
Or before you know it,
You’ll be on the ground.
Don’t move or try to state your case
or I’m gonna send you to your final resting place.

I said, hold on man, what you trying to say
I’m just hanging out
Trying to pass the day
Can we talk a while before you let them go.
I’ll tell you anything that you wanna know.
He said, “I stopped you because you look strange to me:
Said I was in a place I’m not supposed to be
He said, “this is not your part of town
And I don’t want you hanging around”

I said, “I’m just going to see a friend!”
He didn’t care where I was going
Or where I’d been
The way he stared, I was getting scared
As he continued to look this is what he said:

Hands Up! Don’t you move
Or I’m gonna do something
I don’t have to prove
Hands Up! You better not sway
Or you may not live another day
Hands Up! Turn yourself around
Or before you know it,
You’ll be on the ground.
Don’t move or try to state your case
or I’m gonna send you to your final resting place.


Don’t put me down ‘cuz we don’t look the same
I came from the same place that you came
Although what happened was no surprise
It didn’t stop the tears
From falling from my eyes
I asked him then, what can I do
To prove that I’m no threat to you?
Why do you always think that I’m up to no good
When I come near your neighborhood?
The thing that really made me afraid
Is when he looked at me and then he said:

Hands Up! Don’t you move
