- Music: Barton, Lyrics: Casey, McColgan -

Now let me tell you about a man named John Law He's a neighborhood cop the toughest man I ever saw A man who knows his duty, a man with a gun To the people in the neighborhood John Law is number one

Freeze, we said Stop His name was John Law For John Law, Neighborhood cop A man we know and love

When John Laws not kickin' Ass on robbers and rapist He's helpin little kids deliver newspapers When John Laws not chasin crackheads from their perch He's helpin old ladies on their way to church

Chorus:

He walks the Beat Riding scumbags from the streets He turns his eye to petty crime Cause John Law will never drop a dime

Suburban Anarchists who've never broke the law Sing about police oppression, but they've never met John Law He doesn't fuck with young kids drinking in the Park But he makes the city safe for women after dark
