Dropkick Murphys John Law Lyrics

Last updated: 04/10/2008 11:00:00 AM


Now let me tell you about a man named John Law
He's a neighborhood cop, the toughest man I ever saw
A man who knows his duty, a man with a gun
To the people in the neighborhood John Law is number one

Freeze, we said stop (His name was John Law)
For John Law, neighborhood cop (A man we know and love)

When John Law's not kicking ass on robbers and rapist
He's helping little kids deliver newspapers
When John Law's not chasing crackheads from their perch
He's helping old ladies on their way to church

Freeze, we said stop (His name was John Law)
For John Law, neighborhood cop (A man we know and love)

He walks the beat
Riding scumbags from the streets
He turns his eye to petty crime
Cause John Law will never drop a dime

Suburban anarchists who've never broke the law
Sing about police oppression, but they've never met John Law
He doesn't fuck with young kids drinking in the Park
But he makes the city safe for women after dark

Freeze, we said stop (His name was John Law)
For John Law, neighborhood cop (A man we know and love)
