"So You Want To Be A Cop...how Bizarre"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

so, you want to be a cop...how bizarre
then listen now, to what i say
get yourself some equipment and car
then fight some crime
and put crooks away

and when they're locked up tight
no parole in sight
its gonna be alright

there's a donut shop downtown
where the blue-clad men are often found
when you're there, you'll have company
cops are everywhere....eating pastries there

and when this gig is through
and your pension starts
you'll feel like you've done your part

the dough you're paid is so low its a shame
and you cannot be blamed
if some bribes are obtained
put your name in the public domain
don't forget who you are
you're a cop...how bizarre

la-la-la-la...la-la-la-la
la-la-la-la-la-la...la-la-la-la
