Story behind the song
When Joe Biden was asked about police reform, he responded that police could shoot someone in the leg instead of killing them.
Shoot em in the leg, Joe. Be tough on crime
That bill you wrote in 94, for a nickle or a dime
To send em behind prison bars So they can work those corporate bazaars
Shoot em in the leg Joe and they can sew clothes
For Fruit of the Loom and Eddie Bauer And JC Penny for pennies an hour
Target, KMart and Unicor; McDonalds and Macys Dep. Store
And Victorias Secret, Aint that hot If lingerie is what you got
Shoot em in the leg Joe, they dont need to walk
For Verizon and Sprint, they just need to talk
Like at AT&T, Avis Rent A Car; And that Honda Motor car
Shoot em in the thigh, Joe, shoot em in the arm;
They can still work for Pfizer, Cargill, State Farm
Exxon Mobile, BP and Shell; pumping gas from inside their cell.
Yeh, shoot em in the leg Joe, not in the back or head;
When you take aim you gotta think ahead
Cause how they gonna work for you In prison if theyre dead.
Koch & Fidelity promote legislation; Sara Lee, BAC for implementation
And not a word about pigmentation
But ask United and Boeing about incarceration.
For American Express & UPS, shoot em in the toe
For Starbucks, Walmart, Revlon, Nintendo------ Catterpillar,
IBM, Texas Instruments, Microsoft oh So many choices for prison dough.
3 strikes youre out says Joe Biden; NAFTA, plastic, union buster inside him;
Prisons doin the country a favor; Makin it cheaper with prison labor
Yeh, shoot em in the leg, Joe.
