Villains' Chorus

Villains' Chorus
 (Peggy Seeger)

 Cho:     I think our police are wonderful, wonderful, wonderful
     So join us in the chorus
     We don't have to pay 'em to stay away
     The government does it for us

 Shall we go down to Barclay's Bank, the Midland or Nat West
 Got no need to make any plans or decide which one is best
 Plenty of time to hold 'em up and scarper to Argentina
 No longer are the law around since the women went to Greenham

 You can stand on the corner any day without a fear or worry
 And advertise your merchandise that fell out of a lorry
 The boys in blue won't bother you, they're all down in Brixton
 Taking up all the black boys there and taking 'em in to fix 'em

 Pickpockets, hit men, gangsters, these biederman racketeers
 Forgers, murderers, hooligans, thugs for Thatcher give a cheer
 No coppers creeping round our paths to spoil our concentration
 They're bashing 'em in Trafalgar Square at a nuclear demonstration

 He got away in the get-away car after he made the haul
 But driving up the motorway they got him after all
 They flagged him down and searched his car and him and his attire
 They thought he was a miner going to picket in Nottinghamshire

 I'm going to leave the underworld and join the constabulary
 There's lots of lads, plenty of kicks and the perks are extraordinary
 My mates have been in the Force for years so I'll be with my friends
 Who're like the long arm of the law with its boot at the other end
