Lyrics – 41 Times

1999 MP3 single about Amadou Diallo

You pulled the trigger forty-one times
You put his profile face-down in the hallway
You pulled the trigger forty-one times

And you said, “Oh,
Hey, Amadou Diallo,
Boy, are you feeling lucky tonight?
Hey, Amadou Diallo
You got your Street Crime Unit invite
Oh, Amadou Diallo
Bet you can’t count to twenty…”

Then SCU, he made it
SCU, he made your day
You can tell your mayor
It’s “New York’s Finest” hour

You pulled the trigger…
(SCU, you made it true…)
forty-one times
You pulled the trigger…
(SCU, you made it true…)
forty-one times…
