This One's for the Cops!

lyrics

Three cheers for the cops, three cheers for the cops
They keep us alive, they keep our cities safe
White, Latino, or black, they treat you just the same
So three cheers for the cops. Hip, hip, hooray!

And all my gay and trans friends also know there is no end
To a cop's love, a cop is your best friend
So three cheers for the cops, they've come to save the day
Three cheers for the cops. Hip, hip, hooray!

Last spring in Cleveland, they shot a man on West 6th
Though he committed no crime, you know he probably deserved it
Back in '10 in Detroit, they shot a little girl while she slept,
Patted themselves on the back while her grandmother stood there and wept
So three cheers for the cops, they've come to save the day
Three cheers for the cops. Hip, hip, hooray!

On Monday May 12, 2014
Pierce County, Washington Sheriff's Deputies
They murdered a man, while he shouted "Help, call the police!"
With nothing but there batons and their egos and a false sense of authority
So three cheers for the cops, they serve and protect you and me
Three cheers for the cops, thank God for police!

Three cheers for the Seattle Police
Three cheers for the CHP
Three cheers for the Alameda County Sheriff's Department
Three cheers for the NYPD
Three cheers for the Cleveland Police
Three cheers for the cops
Hip, hip, hooray!
