Cops And Robbers - Bo Diddley/Kay Starr

I was driving home on the Boulevard late one night

 

When I spied a cat over at the corner

 

Thumbing all alone

 

Now as I passed him by

 

I heard him holler out "Hey "

 

I slowed down to see what he said

He hollered "Oh by any chance you going my way "

 

I said "Why sure baby hop in and gimme a cigarette "

 

Just then he reached down in his pockets

 

And that was the moment that I regret

 

He hollered "Reach for the sky "

 

I said "But I don't understand you sir "

 

"Don't give me no monkey business

 

I gotta stopper in my hand "

 

Again he says "Uh looky here

You see this here I got in my hand

This is a thirty-eight pistol

 

Built on a forty-five frame

 

Shoots tombstone bullets

 

And a ball and chain

 

He said "Now I ain't trying to shake you up

 

And I but I just want you to know

 

If the cops start to crowd me in

 

You gonna be the first to go

 

So looky here don't even look back

You Just drive on just like nothing happening

 

That's when he told me

He said "Don't even look back or nothing'"

 

He said "when I get to that red light "

 

He wanted me to go to my left

And then jump back to my right

He says "Now uh I want you drive up in that alley

 

N-n-n-n-not that alley that alley over there

 

And pull up behind that liquor store

 

And keep a sharp look out at all times

While I sneak in the back door "

That's when he told me

 

He said "keep my foot on that gas

And always be on gaurd

 

'Cause when I come running out of there

With all that money "

He wanted me to mash down on it real hard

 

He said "Now don't let me come out there

 

And find me a double-cross

 

Because I murder when the heat's on

 

"Reach for the sky "

 

I said "But I don't understand you sir "

 

"Don't try no monkey business

 

I gotta stopper in my hand "

 

Wooo-weee I was sitting there just trembling

 

A spotlight hit me dead in the face

 

And Chicago cop behind me said

 

"move over a little bit man

We gonna take your place "

 

Just then this guy come running out of the liquor store

With all that money in his hand

He said "Oh there you are "

 

He made a mistake in the dark

And leaped in the police car

 

They put the handcuffs on him

I said "Child your crime must have outgrew him "

 

And then they said

 

"Yeah We gonna put you so far back in jail this time

They gonna have to pump air into him "
