Killing Me Loudly With Their Song

by Steven Kent

Hey DJ, can you play my favorite song?
You know the one, man: “Killing in the Name.”
It’s true that my request remains the same
Time after ti—oh damn, I spilled my bong!

I wanna hear it more than once, okay?
Whoa, round-the-clock would suit me to a T!
For weeks to come? You’ll do this just for me?
Dude, 104.9 rocks all the way!
