Oh do policemen sing?
I heard a person cry
"We can do anything"
I heard the Force reply

Oh do policemen sing?
Yes when they're in the mood
And when their truncheons swing
That's when they're in the mood

It's true because-ah
Never argue with a rozzer
Never show him insolence, confidence
'Cause who supplies the evidence it's
Not your mother or your lover
Or your best friend's dog

Oh do policemen dream?
Yes when they're fast asleep
And when policemen dream
It proves they're fast asleep

Oh do policemen sing?
Yes if they've got the time
And when they sing for you
Just tell them they're sublime
Don't get stymied, don't say "ruddy hell" or "blimey"
Don't complain if your beans aren't warm

Oh do policemen sing?
Oh yes extremely well
Haven't you heard the Welsh?
They really do excel

And are policeman gay?
Depends on what you mean
They are not lewd or queer
But they all dig the Queen

Open ended,
'Specially when you're apprehended,
Taken in and

Our law and order's never never never never never gonna break down
Our law and order's never never never never never gonna break down
Our law and order's never never never never never gonna break down
Our law and order's never never never never never never gonna break dow
