Masked Intruder – I Fought The Law lyrics

It's a Saturday night
Police are trying to ruin my good time
They've got no right
But it doesn't seem to matter
Cause it happens every time

I try to get close to you
Instead I see flashes of red and blue
There's nothing left so say but "oh no"
What am I supposed to do?

Cause I fought the law
With all my might
Yeah, I fought the law
But I just could not win that fight
Just like our founding fathers
I fought to be free
Yeah, I fought the law
But the law beat the shit out of me

I hope that somebody's taping this
And they play it on TV
A cable news expose
On police brutality
Just like president Benjamin Franklin
I fought to be free
Yeah, I fought the law
But the law beat the shit out of me
