44 47 | KRS-One's lyrics about 'overseer' and 'officer', Sound of Da Police

Lyrics from KRS-One's Sound of Da Police:
Listen here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt7hoHBcY9k

Now here's a little truth
Open up your eye
While you're checking out the boom-bap, check the exercise
Take the word "overseer, " like a sample
Repeat it very quickly in a crew for example
Overseer
Overseer
Overseer
Overseer

Officer, Officer, Officer, Officer!
Yeah, officer from overseer
You need a little clarity?
Check the similarity!
The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patrolling all the nation
The overseer could stop you what you're doing
The officer will pull you over just when he's pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill
The officer has the right to arrest
And if you fight back they put a hole in your chest!
(Woop!) They both ride horses
After 400 years, I've got no choices!
The police them have a little gun
So when I'm on the streets, I walk around with a bigger one
(Woop-woop!) I hear it all day
Just so they can run the light and be upon their way
Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police! That's the sound of the beast!

Notice the Gematria overlap with 'overseer' and 'officer'.



And 'beast' and 'policeman' and 'cop'.
