An Ordinary Copper

Spoken.
"Y'know, before I was a sergeant at Dock Green, I was an ordinary copper. 
And now I'd like to finish with our theme song just to remind me... and you, 
of those happy days when I was on the beat".

Sung.
I'm an ordinary copper who's patrolling his beat.
Around Dock Green.
'Hello, Mister Dixon!' shout the kids in the street,
Around Dock Green.
The C.I.D. are always in the headlines,
But I prefer the ordinary scene.
As an ordinary copper who's patrolling his beat.
Around Dock Green.

Spoken.
Now I've been in the police force for a long time,
More years than I care to think about.
Sergeants come and go and inspectors come and go,
But I'll stay on until they kick me out.
I like the people I meet everyday
As I go quietly whistling on my way.

Tune whistled.

Sung.
The teddy boys' ain't partial to my company
They don't like all their capers to be seen,
By an ordinary copper who's patrolling his beat.
Around Dock Green. 
The end
