O.J. Blues

© 1994 Dan Scanlan


He could carry the ball ever so fine and slice through the Notre Dame line,
He could carry the ball ever so fine and slice through the Notre Dame line,
O. J., what did you say
To your mother on the telephone line?

Ever since King, LAPD jump on the sensitive train,
Ever since King, LAPD jump on the sensitive train,
Oh my, he's camera shy,
This killin' has carved out such pain.

He could carry the ball ever so fine and slice through the Notre Dame line,
He could carry the ball ever so fine and slice through the Notre Dame line,
O. J., what did you say
To your mother on the telephone line?

The cops try their best, oh they do, with Chief Williams at the wheel,
The cops try their best, oh they do, with Chief Williams at the wheel,
But that cut across town, slowed everything down,
That killing was so damn surreal.

He could carry the ball ever so fine and slice through the Notre Dame line,
He could carry the ball ever so fine and slice through the Notre Dame line,
O. J., what did you say
To your mother on the telephone line?

I say look at me and look at you, we're a nation of lookey-Lus,
I say look at me and look at you, we're a nation of lookey-Lus,
A hero plunged far, crouched down in the car
His attorney's rewriting the news.

'Cause he could carry the ball ever so fine and slice through the Notre Dame line,
He could carry the ball ever so fine and slice through the Notre Dame line,
O. J., what did you say
To your mother on that cellular telephone line?
