Mannequin Down

from Looting LA 2020 by Nicki Tedesco



While watching the city burning on fire and just about every shop, regardless of who owned it, was being looted and thrashed, I saw an arm and people running over what I thought was a body. However it was simply a mannequin. I yelled "Mannequin Down" and this song was born. The funniest part of this whole thing is that, most looters were stealing shoes, AND some looters thought they had really made out with large boxes of stuff, but when they opened the box, it was full of plastic "to-go" bags.


Mannequin Down, Mannequin Down
Don’t go to the Grove!
Did you grab the shoes?
Did you get the right size?

Starbucks is burning, the Macy’s is gone
No one is learning, it’s burning till dawn
Set them on fire, no particular reason
Nordstroms is pillaged it’s the summertime season

Let’s loot the Adidas store
Cause it’s your fault, I won’t be ignored
Palm trees are burning in La La land
I’ll Uber to meet you at the Pink’s hot dog stand

Mannequin Down, Mannequin Down
Don’t go to the Grove!
