Long Arm Of The Law

There is no escaping the “Long arm of the law’ even when you’ve done nothing wrong. Here are lyrics I wrote after being wrongly arrested for driving under the influence by a narcissistic cop.

Music in the style of “Hourglass” by Squeeze
Words by Doug Bayliss

VERSE 1

I could see your lights a-flashin’ right away

If I listened to your lies would you say

I am drunk, intoxicated

You think you’re smellin’ drugs

How can I contradict you?

Long arm of the law. (Long arm of the law).

CHORUS

Pennsylvania Trooper-leave-me the fuck alone. Be on your way. Be on your way.

You should-be-chasin’ somebody who did a crime. 

Not chirp a wheel. (Not chirp a wheel).

VERSE 2

Get out -of the car I heard you say

And-then-you told-me-to-walk this way

Then your light was in my eye

I had to look from side to side

You wiped out, the breath-a-li-zer

You-oo dumb-ass. Your-ass is grass

CHORUS

Pennsylvania Trooper-leave-me the fuck alone. Be on your way. Be on your way.

You should-be-chasin’ somebody who did a crime.

Not chirp a wheel. (Not chirp a wheel).

BRIDGE

I’m not drunk or intoxicated

I inherited a fucking disease

I’m not drunk or intoxicated

I inherited a fucking disease

VERSE 3

You took me down for being drunk

Cause I can’t walk a straight line

If you knew of my condition

You wouldn’t lie. You shouldn’t lie

CHORUS

Pennsylvania Trooper-leave-me the fuck alone. Be on your way. Be on your way.

You should-be-chasin’ somebody who did a crime.

Not chirp a wheel. (Not chirp a wheel.)

CHORUS

Pennsylvania Trooper-leave-me the fuck alone. Be on your way. Be on your way.

You should-be-chasin’ somebody who did a crime.

Not chirp a wheel. (Not chirp a wheel).

CHORUS

Pennsylvania Trooper-leave-me the fuck alone. Be on your way. Be on your way.

You should-be-chasin’ somebody who did a crime.

Not chirp a wheel. (Not chirp a wheel.)
