Cops

It started in first grade when the patrol boys
Got me for going up the down staircase
They dragged me up to the principal's office
He waived the death penalty. Nice guy!

It happened again in third grade at the playground
Caught me climbing up the sliding board backwards
They dragged me off to the third grade teacher
Again, there was no lethal injection

Cops cops cops cops
Can't tell you how much I hate them
Guns and handcuffs on their belts
Blue lights atop their Metro cars

Cops cops cops cops
Can't tell you the way I despise them
Causing half of all the crime
Putting innocents behind bars

You recall the police riots of the 60s
Legal thugs in black uniforms
It's happening again since 9/11
Sirens blaring into the night

Dumb as dirt, that's how they make a living
Overbearing security in every town
Cruising the streets like wild dogs in heat
Giving tickets left and right

Cops cops cops cops
Can't tell you how much I hate them
Guns and handcuffs on their belts
Blue lights atop their Metro cars

Cops cops cops cops
Can't tell you the way I despise them
Causing half of all the crime
Putting innocents behind bars

Bridge:
I won't say the only good cop is a dead cop
I just want the harassment to stop

A band of ignorant, arrogant fools
Robbing society, they're on the take
They've dogged me now nearly 50 years
Louisville to Nashville and in between

When I see them behind me on the road
I pull to the side and let them go by
I know they're out here looking for money
I'm paranoid cos they're so damn mean

Cops cops cops cops
Can't tell you how much I hate them
Guns and handcuffs on their belts
Blue lights atop their Metro cars

Cops cops cops cops
Can't tell you the way I despise them
Causing half of all the crime
Putting innocents behind bars

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
