drhook_copsandrobbers.jpg (11466 bytes) This song was released as a single and should have made it to the elusive FRIED FACE Album . . . but Columbia dropped the band , they declared Bankruptcy and the rest , dear reader , is history . . . .

 

It can be found , though , on the Best of Musikladen Video and CD and also on the "Sylvia's Mother" video/audio CD-set frequently advertised on E-Bay etc for about $20 . . . . excellent stuff !

 

 

Cops & Robbers

Cops and Robbers everywhere I turn ,
If I ain't gettin' busted then I'm busy being burned ,
Wish I could find a dog who won't bite my hand .

Cops and robbers everywhere you looked ,
If you ain't gettin' hassled then you're probably getting booked ,
Stop cryin' - We're all fryin' in the same old pan !

I drink a little wine just to get a little tipsy ,
Some big dude steals my money and a little weirdo hits me ,
Someone tell me somethin' I can understand .

I'm tired of watchin' the same old shows ,
Gotta be a new place I can go ,
but I been to the west and the north the east and the south .

Back in the hill I can find me home
Dig a few worms and grab a hold of my pole
I'll be fishin' and swishin' and moonshine in my mouth .

A good friend of mine that I knew a long time ,
Stole my cat and my hat and a whole bunch of stuff like that ,
I'd better move to the zoo - what else can ya do ?

Cops and Robbers everywhere I turn ,
If I ain't gettin' busted then I'm busy being burned
and that's the reason . . . .
Cops and Robbers everywhere you look ,
If you ain't gettin' hassled  you're probably being booked . . . .
Help me . . help me . . . help me . . . . . . . . . .

(Fades out slowly with  usual screams and cries and Dennis' rambling . . . .)
