The Day that the Boys Came Down

Alistair Hulett
Language: English



They came down from the backstreet, the thingys and the flatfeet
With dogs that had nosed his things back at Long Bay
And they had a warrant, he was abhorrent
The day that the boys came down to blow him away
The neighbours were snoring or too busy scoring
Time for the boys in blue to show crime doesn’t pay
They know what they’re there for, what they get their four square for
The day that the boys came down to blow him away

And he was no fool, one of the old school
He just broke the golden rule
Topping a warder was right out of order
The day that the boys came down to blow him away

He’s in bed with his missus, he gets up and pisses
He knows that something’s up, he twigs right away
Just the flash of a torch, out there on the back porch
The day that the boys came down to blow him away
He would never take chances round a woman he fancies
So he writes a note to say every dog has its day
Then he walks down the backstairs with his hands in the air
The day that the boys came down to blow him away

And he was no fool, one of the old school
He just broke the golden rule
And the first bullet slit him ‘fore he knew what had hit him
The day that the boys came down to blow him away
