"Pants on the Ground!!!"


General Larry Platt, was shot in the eye as a child, attacked by K-9 dogs and suffered beatings, calls himself a "general of the civil rights movement." He talks about his experiences and memories of the civil rights leaders of the era.
The Georgia General Assembly proclaimed Sept. 4, 2001, Larry Platt Day in Atlanta, because of "his great energy and commitment to equality and the protection of the innocent and for his outstanding service to the Atlanta community and the citizens of Georgia."

LYRICS:
Pants on the ground
Pants on the ground
Lookin like a fool with your pants on the ground
Gold in your mouth
Hat turned sideways, pants hit the ground
Call yourself a cool cat looking like a fool
Walking down town (2nd time say Talkin')
With your pants on the ground!
