Well Martin's dream has become Rodney's worst nightmare
Can't walk the streets to them we are fair game our lives don't mean a thing

Like a king,
Like a king,
Like a king
Rodney King,
Rodney King,
Rodney King
Like a king,
Like a king,
Like a king

How I wish you could help us Dr. King

Make sure it's filmed shown on national T.V.
They'll have no mercy a legal lynch mob like the days strung up from the tree the L.A.P.D.

Like a king,
Like a king,
Like a king
Rodney King,
Rodney King,
Rodney King
Like a king,
Like a king,
Like a king

How I wish you could help us Dr. King

So if you catch yourself thinking it has changed for the best you better second guess cause
Martin's dream has become Rodney's worst nightmare

Like a king,
Like a king,
Like a king
Rodney King,
Rodney King,
Rodney King
Like a king,
Like a king,
Like a king

How I wish you could help us Dr. King
