Facts:
  • From the album "Southbound" (A&M Records, 1975). (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    I'm the cop in a little bitty town
    And I don't get much pay
    Oh, but I caught seventeen out of state cars
    And four of my friends today.

    Yeah, I let the hometown boys go home
    They paid five dollars bail
    Oh, but all the drivers in the out of state cars
    Had to go to jail.

    Well, they hollered and they moaned
    And they cried and they groaned
    They all swore that they'd sue
    But the judge was high and so was I
    And we needed the money too.

    Yeah, the judge and me got a deal
    you see we split the money fair
    Except for thirty percent to the county seat
    To keep the law out of our hair.

    And old Charlie's working out real good
    Down at the corner store where the red light is
    He sees them out of state plates two blocks away
    And when they get right up on top of that green light
    Old Charlie pushes that secret button
    Underneath the corner drugstore counter
    That yellow light only lasts for a tenth of a second.

    Oh, the county pays me about forty a week
    Ain't that the living end
    If it wasn't for them tourists in them out of state cars
    I'd have no look to spend.

    But the way it stands this year so far
    I've made a hundred thou
    For a high school dropout I'm a doin' fine
    I make more than the president now, Of course he's honest.

    So if you're driving down the road
    And flashing lights you see
    If they're on a top of a red Rolls Royce
    You can bet your boots it's me.

    'Cause I'm the cop in a little bitty town
    And I'd sure like to see
    All the drivers in them out of state cars
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
