Lyrics
Hey Mr. Policeman
I've seen you in my neighborhood
You look to me up to no good
I've seen you with your gun in your hand
Hey Mr. Policeman
I saw you shoot my good friend down
He was just havin' fun
Checkin' out a one & one
It's a shame and disgrace
Everytime you show your face
Somebody dies man
La la la la la la la la la
Hey Mr. Policeman
Why don't you leave the boys alone
Why don't you just roll your own
And call me on the telephone
Hey Mr. Policeman
I see you walkin' on your beat
Searchin' strangers on the street
Especially the whores you meet
It's a shame such a disgrace
Everytime you show your face
Somebody dies man
Somebody dies
[Police monologue, Siren]
This is a car #54 wait to check out etc...
Hey Mr. Policeman
I saw you shoot my good friend down
He was just havin' fun checkin' out a one & one
Hey Mr. Policeman
I see you never havin' fun
Strapped to your side a gun
.357 Smith Magnum
It's a shame & disgrace
Everytime you show your face
Somebody dies man
I'd rather be a farmer than to be a police
I'd rather be a singer than to be a police
I'd rather be a father than to be a police
