Chumbawamba – Oxymoron lyrics

Shiny button-down clown suit
Oxymoron
Expand the simplest of chores
Oxymoron
Mr. constant consternation
And his declaration of war
Makes a fist out of demands
With his plasticene hands

Matey makes a big big deal
Oxymoron
And matey makes a big big meal
Oxymoron
Boasts of a conscience so big
It means his uniform wont fit
Cooking books and punching drunks
Working for the real crooks

The good cop
Oxymoron
The good cop
Oxymoron

I dont believe in the good cop

At the ticket inspector s party
Oxymoron
Prison guards eye store detectives
Oxymoron
All good fighters of crime
Same repeated chat-up line:
are you well tooled up?
Come and have a go if you think
Youre hard enough

Watch them tighten their straps
Oxymoron
Yes sir I switched on the taps
Oxymoron
Heads to crack, eyes to black
Beaurocrats will cover your tracks
Heres how dictatorships begin:
Fools obey without thinking

The good cop
Oxymoron

I dont believe in the good cop
