AS HOT AS I CAN MAKE IT
(The Policeman's Song)
 
div
 
Behold a man who represents the strong arm of the law
But for it's regulations I don't care a single straw
I only joined the Force because I never cared for work
And I don't mind confessing, I'm as lazy as a Turk.

Chorus: If they offer me a tip when I get them in a grip
I make believe I'm not allowed to take it
And if they offer any cheek, when they're up before the beak
Well they get it just as hot as I can make it.


At closing time outside the Pub, I take my stand at night
Providing there's no quarrel, for I always shun a fight
But those half screwed upon my beat had better come prepared
I'm bound to do my duty, but I'm open to be squared.

Chorus:

Last night I caught a Tartar near a local railway arch
He gave me lots of trouble, but I quickly made him march
Tho' not before he punched my nose and tore my coat in two
Then got my ear between his teeth, and then began to chew,
