John Hiatt – Cop Party lyrics

Down on the beat

They're lining up everyone

Who's got a mind on a bullet and a mouth like a gun

Boys and girls

Stripped to their innocence

We run some real weak links in this long chain of events

Cop party and you better not go

Spend the rest of your life in this tv show

Cop party and you better run

Because they're not gonna stop until they've had their fun

Until justice is done

They're checking out

Everybody with a fine-toothed comb

So leave your keys in the car and the wisecracking at home

Spread 'em, boy

And don't you turn around

We're gonna make you real sorry that you ever come into this town

Cop party and you better not go

Spend the rest of your life in this tv show

Cop party and you better run

Because they're not gonna stop until they've had their fun

Summer is here, we're out in the street

The verdict is already in

Turn up the music, here comes the heat

Cop party and you better not go

You'll spend the rest of your life in this tv show

Cop party and you better run

Because they're not gonna stop until they've had their fun

Cop party and you better not go
