The Lyrics

DKTOS? Youtube it HERE

Out on the black top,
He be lyin' there lowly,
He will shoot you radar,
His gun, colt revolver.
He hides there, where, you can't see,
He will pull you over
Or then chase if you flee.

He smells for booze wine,
He do exam foot sprawl.
He spot, junkie drinker,
He shoot, colt revolver.
He say, who are you? Show ID,
If you don't he'll jail you,
And you'll not be so free.
Cops'll getcha, keeps law, orderly.

Want gang reduction,
He do, haul ass pursuit.
He check, John Doe warrants,
Bust some, Wino whackers.
He tries keep, down, find blow he seize,
Put them is his car there,
Where he'll deal them a squeeze.
Cops'll getcha, avow, keep the peace.

He rolls his cruiser,
He give, drivers warnings.
Perp screams, ugly chatter,
Make those, locos chill-er,
He say, "Do you know, your A B C's"?
Take to central booking,
'Cause of too drunk you be.
Cops'll getcha, drive now, cautiously.

Cops'll getcha, yeah... Cops'll getcha yeah...
Cops'll getcha, yeah... Cops'll getcha yeah...
Cops'll getcha, yeeah... Cops'll getcha, yeeeeah....
Cops'll getcha, yeeeeah... Cops'll getcha, yeah... Cops'll getcha... yeah

A♠ J♠ - I've done the theme to Cops by Inner Circle some time back and called it "Fat Boys". Yeah - maybe after somewhere around 25 years on the air the show could use a change up of theme song. Thanks for the high marks.

Mark - I looked in on your "southern" parody - visit it again to see what I posted. Thisis my 8th parody to the OS of Come Together. My best one is:

Give a glance over if you wish. It took 2nd place in an Artistry comp awhile back with 40 points. Gold for that round had 41 points. Thanks, Mark.

Superb pacing and rhyme in this; I could sing it easily instead of reading it. Great lines, too. But what about the texters and phoners; they are just as dangerous.

Great job on this - I got pulled a while back by a cop hiding in a bush with a radar for doing 34mph in a 30mph zone. 3 cars pulled away from the lights first, then me on my bike, then more cars behind me - he singled me out. I asked why he chose me because obviously I couldn't have been going any faster than the cars in front but he wouldn't give me an answer. Instead he told me not to talk back to him or he'll find something else to nick me for as well. Charming - yet another reason why I hate cops. 3 points on my license (12 = automatic ban) & a fine.

Signor DiRito, you have written an outstanding parody. You have the right to be called a great writer. All 5-5-5 votes should be given to this parody and not all 1s. You have the ability to enter this work in any contest you like, on or off InThe00s. Do you understand these compliments? -Modification of the Miranda Rights into a humorous, police-related comment.

John - Yikes 555 BAC? - If Star Trek's Doc McCoy administered the BAC he would be heard to say:

He's dead, Jim.

Thanks John.

I've seen these hide with the radar gun tactics puled off in Japan. Omadi-San (Japanese for Cops) got my friend once on a bicycle going through Fusa City outside Tokyo. My friend Lee was called Jumbo-San by his Japanese co workers. He was about 6 ft 2 inches tall and weighed about 280 pounds and was strong as an ox. He once lifted my Subaru wagon's back end off the ground while I changed a flat. Omadi-San gave him a speeding ticket because of his size - I guess they thought anyone that big going 20 KPH over the speed limit was a menace on the road. My wife got pulled over by Omadi-San and the officer just gave up because he didn't speak any English. The copper that got you probably singled you out because of the bike. Maybe he thinks that all bikers are like Hell's Angels. Thanks for sharing your comment.

Andria - That is the nicest comment that I have ever received on this site. I do indeed understand your compliments. I almost feel guilty to have received such compliment because I had so much fun writing this. Fun and high compliments - who could want more. You made my day, Andria, thanks!

I'm really glad I made your day, Guy. Not only did I make the day one of the greatest writers on AmIRight, you made MY day by me making yours. That was a pretty cool story about your Subaru being lifted off the road by your friend when you had a flat. I could definitely use Lee, aka Jumbo-San when my truck gets flats, because the jack got stolen and I didn't know how to use it anyway. :-)

Fiddlegirl - "Studley Do-Write"? LOL! I love it. I like your quick wit and terse witty comments back at anal retentives on this site as you did yesterday to "Stormin Norman". You go girl!

Christie Marie - I love wild goose chases - thanks. Come together is one of my faves to parody - I do one every few months. I have eight of them published now. It's a good OS to practice word smithing I think because the lyrics make little to no sense at all - I believe they were tripping on acid when they wrote this one.

Lee was an old USAF buddy who was a butcher and worked in the USAF commisary at Yokota Air Base near Tokyo. He was my next door neighbor when we first arrived in country. We had to live off base for a while until our turn came for base housing, so we hung together for about three years until we both rotated back to the states after our three year tour was over. Lee's wife had a baby girl just one day after my wife had our son Robert - My wife and Lee's wife were in the maternity ward together. It would be so funny whenever Lee and I would be off base some place because of the looks he got from the Japanese that were so hilarious because of his size. He could have passed for a Sumo Wrestler.

Scary thing is how often this parody is reality for many people. I fear the fact that the people really have no power in this 'democracy' any more, and that police do have almost unquestionable power. . .looks like we are nearing 2,500 total 60's Beatles parodies. . .getting close.
Guy - August 14, 2009 - Report this comment
Thought Cops - Sorry, I have no knowledge of alleged attempted robbery of warehouse in N.Y. Now you have me wondering how the line in this parody "Out on the black top," relates to an attempted robbery of a warehouse in N.Y.? Anyway thanks for commenting - hope that the parody wasn't what you expected did not disappoint you too much.

BAD - Lighten up dude - this was just for fun. I don't see so much the cops being a problem as the politicians who are running us into the ground. I hope you found some humor in this. A prime example of the cops getting the short end of the stick is the matter between Professor Henry Gates and Officer James Crowley and O's beer bottle diplomacy. This entire matter was bent all the hell out of shape. Crowley has been labeled abusive and racist when IMO he was just doing his job.

Yeah, there are bad cops - ex police officer Drew Peterson for example. I bet he was a real gem when he was actively employed as a police officer. But don't let a few bad apples ruin the batch. Thanks for reading and commenting.

So are you going to announce when Beatles parody numbers reach 2,500? I had the luck of being spotlighted on April 10, 2004 for having submitted the 20,000TH parody on amiright. There has to be quadruple or more this number of parodies on the site. .

Ms Pat - Yeah I remember the first time you wrote a "Come Together" parody - I believe you called it :"Bad Snowman" - It was hilarious. I think it was around that time that I realized how much mileage one could get out of this OS. - You're about due to write another one, no? Thanks for reading.

BAD - It's just that your comment seemed so serious. And you are right, the cops can be scary. A woman I work with just had her son shot five times by a county deputy sheriff killing him. It all started a few weeks before when the cop and he got into a fight over my coworker's son's girl friend. Her son gave the cop a complete beat down. The cop was off duty at the time. Then around 2:30 AM on a Sunday/Saturday night her son received a text message saying that his girl friend was at a party and was being harrassed. The sender of the text remained anonomous. The cop set her son up and shot him while he was inside his car driving off - My coworker says it was homicide - news reports said that her son was reaching for a gun from his glove box but I doubt that is true. Her son was not a criminal. He had a good future. He played football in high school and after some years he got himself through college and applied for and got a football coaching job at one of the citiy's high schools. He was also getting married in the near future. So yeah, the cops are scary. I'm glad yu liked my parody - take care buddy.

Thanks Farcey old boy, Now that you mention it they're are elements of rap in the way it is written based of the OS - but it's far from rap. I have yet to do a rap parody and I'm probably a long way off from ever pulling one off. If I did one it would be an old one - like Tone Loc's "Funky Cold Medina".

Guy - August 15, 2009 - Report this comment
DJ - Thanks but being a law abiding citizen helps a bit. When I was in my teens my father's job was being a deputy warden in the county jail. In the summers when I was not in school he would take me to his work place where he picked up his paycheck every other Friday. I saw enough of life inside to know that I was never going to wind up in a place like that. My dad was a hard nosed Italian and he worked the night shift. He told me that if the cops ever brought me into that place I had better pray that he was not working at that time. He said he'd treat me worse than any hard core criminal that had ever entered that jail. I did not doubt him. I was scared straight.

He knew all the wiseguys who lived about our neighborhood and I think he was just trying to make sure that I didn't get mixed up in the rackets - this is why I write so many mob parodies because I grew up with it all around me, Some of the names I use in my parodies were real wiseguys that I knew. It was a very good thing that my dad scared me straight because the temptation to make lots of fast easy money was hard to resist. I had friends who got tangled up with these wiseguys at a young age. Most of them have done time. It starts out simple like "Hey kid com eah - take dis packitch dun ovah der ta Pete.s an doan open it, you git twenny bucks when yas gits back". Then it escalates until they are in so deep they can't get out.

I left that hometown area about 23 days after my 19th birthday - I've been in almost all 50 states including Alaska and Hawaii, Europe and Asia. I was one week from going to Saudi Arabia in 1991 but they pulled my orders because they knew the war was winding down and the guys who were deployed that I was relieving just stayed until it was over.

Before you grammar police slice this up consider the OS - I followed it and I believe that I made much more sense than the OS by The Beatles. If you have issues with my grammar please cite exactly what annoys you when you flame me for it. I'd really like to know but it probably won't make any difference in my style of writing.

Mark - Thanks for commenting again. I actually did the "Bad Boys" theme by Inner Circle in parody a few years back. What you hear on the tube when the show begins is only a small part of the OS. They have been playing that theme on that show since the mid 1980's or earlier. Not for sure how long that show has been on but I know for sure since at least 1985 - it is the original reality TV.

Drunk with Max Power - I hope not - are you of age to legally imbibe in alcoholic beverage? =;-) Thanks.

Bulldogma - I've done of few "Come Toghether" parodies. This OS just begs you to parody it. Thanks.

Peter - It is quite a compliment from you and some others to actually suggest that the Cop's theme be changed to this parody. I should be so lucky but I am sure that "Inner Circle" would not go for it. They probably have a long standing contract with the producers of the show to keep their song as the theme. Thanks for participating in this round of SOTM even though you have no entry invested.

OMG! This was great for its time, but who knew back when this was written, just how bad things have become with cops being shot or shooting anyone & everyone. It hits the news on a daily or even an hourly basis.

Then there are all the school shootings, Pulse Night Club, Las Vegas shooter just to name a few.

Methinks that Armageddon is entering the drive way right now.

This parody has been seriously OBE (overcome by events) & would be a complete failure if written & published today, but it was great during the time period it was written. .

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
