How to get bermuda grass out of a raised bed

Now how do I get rid of all of them before tilling in the leaves and sand I plan to add to the existing dirt.

    I've accidentally left black plastic out on a portion of grassed and noticed that... good idea! Sure would save on the cost of weed killer or the backbreaking stooping of weed pulling.
