Fifteen years
In the academy
He was like no cadet
They'd ever seen

A man so hard
His veins bleed ice
When he speaks
He never says it twice

They call him Judge
His last name is Dredd
So break the law
And you wind up dead

Truth and justice
Are what he's fighting for
Judge Dredd the man
He is the law

Drokk it!

With gun and bike
He rules the streets
Every perp he meets
Will taste defeat

Not even Death
Will overcome his might
Dredd and Anderson
Won the fight

When the Sovs started
The Apocalypse war
Mega City was bombed
To the floor

Dredd resisted
And the judges fought back
Crushed the Sovs
With their counter-attack

Drokk it!

Respect the badge
He earned it with his blood
Fear the gun
Your sentence may be death because...

I am the law!
You won't f**k around no more
I am the law!
I judge the rich, I judge the poor
I am the law!
Commit a crime, I'll lock the door
I am the law!
Because in Mega-City...
I am the law!

In the cursed earth
Where mutants dwell
There is no law
Just a living hell

Anarchy and chaos
As the blood runs red
This would change
If it were up to Dredd

The book of law
Is the bible to him
Any crime committed
Is a sin

He keeps peace
With his law-giver
Judge, jury, and executioner

Respect the badge
He earned it with his blood
Fear the gun
Your sentence may be death because...

I am the law!
You won't f**k around no more
I am the law!
I judge the rich, I judge the poor
I am the law!
Commit a crime I'll lock the door
I am the law!
Because in Mega-City...
I am the law!

Crime!
The ultimate sin
Your iso-cube is waiting
When he brings you in

Law!
It's what he stands for
Crime's the only enemy
He's going to war

(Solo)

Oh!

Crime!
The ultimate sin
Your iso-cube is waiting
When he brings you in

Law!
It's what he stands for
Crime's the only enemy
He's going to war

Ha ha ha!

Respect the badge
He earned it with his blood
Fear the gun
Your sentence may be death because...

I am the law!
You won't f**k around no more
I am the law!
I judge the rich, I judge the poor
I am the law!
Commit a crime, I'll lock the door
I am the law!
Because in Mega-City...
I am the law!

You won't f**k around no more
I am the law!
I judge the rich, I judge the poor
I am the law!
Commit a crime, I'll lock the door
I am the law!
Because in Mega-City...

I...
Am...
The...
Law!
